Lodging and Meals
Due to Custer State Park’s location and the distance to outside housing, most of our seasonal staff is housed within the Park. We also provide three meals per day to all staff members.
The combined calculated value of lodging/RV sites and employee meal allowance is $20 per day. Because of the limited number of RV sites available in our employee housing areas, we strive to occupy all RV sites with two (2) persons per site with both persons being employed by Regency CSP Ventures Limited Partnership.
Although this amount is not deducted from your pay, and is not subject to federal or FICA taxes, the Company does consider it a value to you and as part of your compensation. There is a small deduction from your check for South Dakota sales and use tax only on the amount allocated to meals (currently 4% or $14.40 per month).
Meals are served daily in employee dining areas. Due to the large number of meals prepared each day, we cannot promise to accommodate vegetarian and restricted diets.
Employee lodging facilities vary widely from one location to another; some are new and some have been in use for many years. While not elegant, staff quarters are adequate.
Employees will provide and maintain their own bedding and towels. Seasonal employees will be assigned quarters to share with one or more roommates. Residents are expected to respect visitation restrictions, night-time quiet hours, and to maintain cleanliness of the facilities. The Company is not liable for loss of personal effects and we recommend that you do not bring items of extreme value.
Dormitory housing for married couples is limited and available only when both work full time. We do not provide housing for families with children, and non-staff guests or family members may not stay in staff quarters.
Pets, firearms, and alcohol are strictly prohibited. All dormitory complexes are designated “Drug Free Zones” and are smoke-free. Management reserves the right to inspect any dormitory room at their discretion.
A $25 uniform and a $25 dormitory cleaning and damage deposit will be required from all employees. This amount will be deducted from the employee’s FIRST paycheck and will be refunded if housing is undamaged and all uniforms are checked in upon departure. It is the employee’s responsibility to have their room inspected for damage and cleanliness both on arrival and departure to be assured this refund.
