Chuckwagon Supper & Show
A visit to the Circle B Chuckwagon is like stepping back in time. Guests can enjoy our western setting, browse in the Wild Horse Gift Shop, sip a cold sarsaparilla at the Circle B State Stop, or watch the world-class woodcarver, Doug Ladd, shape one of his unique creations.
The Circle B Chuckwagon Suppers and Cowboy Music Show is the only chuckwagon in South Daktoa that qualifies to be a member of the Chuckwagons of the West Association, a membership that assures their customers the highest quality in food, music, and western hospitality.
After supper, the Circle B Cowboys entertain their guests with old-time western music and ranch humor.
This will be the Circle B Chuckwagon's 40th consecutive summer of entertaining families in the "Old West" tradition of great food and cowboy music. Make sure it is on your list of activities while you are visiting the Black Hills of South Dakota. It is a truly authentic western experience - a present day reflection of the early spirit of this frontier land.
Did you know that the Circle B Chuckwagon has its very own bandit? Every night since 1976, Juan the Biscuit bandit has been stealing biscuits out of the chuckwagon kitchen! And every night Sheriff Dale round up a posse of kids to capture this mischief maker. The kid posse is sworn in to "uphold the laws of South Dakota and the Circle B and go get that biscuit bandit, because WE'RE HUNGRY!!" Eventually, there is a show down between the Sheriff, his posse and the biscuit bandit that has everyone laughing as they file into the Chuckwagon for the supper and cowboy music show.
What western experience would be complete without a little gem panning. At the Circle B panning trough, you can find turquoise, rose quartz, garnets, amethyst, plus other gems. The joke is always "can you find enough to pay for your supper tonight?"
Doug Ladd Carvings
Master woodcarver Doug Ladd has been at the Circle B for the past 28 summers. Every summer he and his wife Jo, pack up their RV and travel from Arizona to spend the summer at the Circle B. Doug's work has been featured at the 2002 Winter Olympics as well as the Circle B. His workshop is full of amazing creations and every year he comes to the Chuckwagon with a new project. He loves showing guests how to carve and stays busy all summer hand-carving buffalos and other animals.
Wild Horse Gift Shop
The Wild Horse Gift Shop is located in the Circle B western town. From the moment you walk in, you experience a "taste of the West." From western decor to western books, from horsehair & reindeer jewelry to locally made pottery and handmade cards, the Wild Horse Gift Shop offers a variety of unique gifts. And of course, there's the Western Kids Toy Corral, featuring cowboy & cowgirl hats, bandanas and that special rifle or gun for the Circle B nightly gun shootout.
Wax Bullet Pistol Shooting
This has been a fun activity for the last several years for children as well as adults. Sheriff Dale instructs them on how to shoot at targets with an authentic Colt 45. The cost for Wax Bullet Pistol Shooting is $4.

This is our History
The Circle B Ranch, first owned by Jay and Betty Baldwin, opened its chuckwagon doors in the summer of 1976. After Jay's death in 1991, Betty ran the chuckwagon until 1995, when the Horn family bought it. The Horns continued the tradition of cowboy music and western hospitality until the spring of 2004, when they moved to Branson , Missouri to open up a second Circle B Chuckwagon. Dale and Kathy Lawson took over the reins summer of 2004.
They now perform Monday through Saturday, May 23, 2014 through mid-September, as the "Circle B Cowboys".
We have always enjoyed doing things together as a family, and when this opportunity came at the Circle B Ranch, it just seemed a perfect fit for us.
