Saw a vacancy sign and inquired in mid Sept. We were lucky enough to get one of the Housekeeping cabins that sleeps 5. There was just the 2 of us. We so loved this place. Secluded off the roadway and other cabins close by but we had our "space". Picnic table and fire pit outside. Can purchase firewood at lodge.... More

The cabin was a very nice cabin. It was clean and had everything we needed for our family of four, including two sleeping areas. It was quiet and ours overlooked the lake. There was a trail around the lake and the restaurant was within walking distance.

We stayed 2 nights in a cabin at Legion Lake Lodge while on vacation in SD. Custer State Park is lovely, and nearby are Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse memorial, Mammoth Site, Wind Cave NP, and Jewel Cave, so lots to do. Our cabin had 2 double beds, both of which were not very comfortable (very soft, so that you wake... More

Custer state park is an absolute gem. I always compare it to yellowstone, but without the crowds. A stay at legion lake takes you right into the middle of the park. There is a lake for swimming. The cabins are well equiped and rustic. There are firepits the kids will love. The restaurant has basic fare. Perfect for a family... More

Staff was very nice, location is centrally located in Custer Park. Bathrooms in cabin were quite nice. Wifi was quite good in our cabin. The beds have to be 20 years old and you sink in them, not ok. $5 plastic nasty dirty chairs in front of our cabin. This cabin was almost $200 a night and the outdoor area... More

We stayed here on our way back from yellowstone. It was a nice break from staying in hotels. We swam at the lake, which the kids loved. We had a small bonfire at the cabin and grilled brats. My only complaint is the beds were too soft and I didn't sleep well, the cabin could be updated, and they charged... More

We were in cabin 2(5 person) which had new flooring, kitchenette, siding, new woodwork and the addition of a deck. The cabin was very nice with a view of... More

We stayed in a cute little cabin for 4 nights, while exploring all that the Black Hills has to offer. It had 2 queen beds, a mini fridge, a full bath, a TV with basic cable, wifi, and air conditioning! It was a bit cramped, but had all of the things we needed and we loved it! Plus, the restaurant...

My family and I had a great time at the Legion Lake Resort. The housekeeping cabins were booked so the four of us (2 adults and 2 children) stayed in a sleeping cabin. It was a little tight but we were out and about so much that it really didn't matter. The cabin was clean and had the basic amenities... More
