This is a not a modern, sleek, luxury hotel. The Lodge is not a 1,000 room conference center behemoth in an urban setting. It's an historic lodge in a stunning natural environment that seems to work very hard to strike the right balance between modern comforts and historic charm. In my opinion, it succeeds nicely, and when you factor in... More

If I had known how amazing Custer State Park (see review) is, it wouldn’t have taken me so long to get there. We were there early in the “season” when the crowds were low and the weather was unusually warm. There are all levels of accommodation at Custer to fit all budgets and tastes. We chose the State Game Lodge.... More

We recently spent the weekend as a family at the State Game Lodge in Custer State Park. This was a very special trip for my family with historical significance. The State Game Lodge was exactly what we anticipated from seeing photos from the late 1920's. The management has done a phenomenal job restoring the lodge as well as the additions... More

My husband and I stayed in the Coolidge Room one night as a part of a weekend getaway. The room has a fantastic sun room with great views. The room was nice for its history. However, just be aware that due to the history of this room the bathroom is small and the sink is not in the bathroom but... More

I stayed here during a trip westward with my family. The lodge itself is gorgeous, blending the historic architecture with modern conveniences. Rather than staying in the lodge itself, our rooms were more traditional hotel rooms on the same grounds, although the price and description would suggest otherwise. Breakfast was also quiet expensive, but the closest restaurants are a considerable... More

We stayed in the Eisenhower bedroom during Sturgis week-what a deal! A historic room, right in the heart of Custer Park (read: beautiful riding country), and this was the least expensive option we could find in all of the Black Hills area! The restaurant has really good food, though maybe a bit pricey. The room was a little small by... More

What a great experience. We stayed off season so the main lodge was closed. We were at creek side clean comfortable and great staff!!! Had dinner at one of the lodges top notch for being off season the chef was fantastic. WE enjoyed all the hiking in the area not a lot to do for kids this time of year

So lovely to stay in the Park and see deer walking past early morning plus swallows nesting in the porch at the Lodge. Our room was in the building to the side of the main lodge and did not look much from the outside but was surprisingly lovely inside. The buffalo themed quilts and pillows were a nice touch. The...
