We stayed in cabin #2 which is located in the back of the complex. View of the lake. Great location as the lodge is close to Custer, Crazy Horse, Mt Rushmore, State Game Lodge and Wildlife Loop Rd. Everything was clean. No complaints. One room had a full and twin bed. The living room/ dining/ kitchen house the other bed.... More

We've stayed at Custer State Park, State Game Lodge area, Creekside cabin, and another time at the Lodge motel room. The quality of the rooms and cabins was the same- rustic nice. This time we stayed at Legion Lake area due to the proximity to Custer and Hot Springs- two areas we knew we'd be visiting during our week visit.... More

After staying at the Roosevelt cabins in Yellowstone a few years ago we expected the sleeping cabins to be similar. The cabins are actually exactly like a motel room in most motels. The bathroom is a standard bathroom and the beds are standard beds. The bathroom door was swollen and difficult to close and the beds were very firm to... More

We happened over a 2 night cancellation for Legion Lake Resort and jump on the opening. We stayed in a 2 room housekeeping cabin #2 with a view of the lake and easy walk to the lake to go fishing. We typically stay and Sylvan Lake but this location was also nice. The cabin was clean and had a very... More

We chose this place because there was no vacancies in our first choices, like Blue Bell Lodge or Sylvan Lake Lodge. Legion Lake Resort Lodge was located in the heart of Custer State Park, so the location is hard to beat, if you like outdoor activities and explore Black Hills. We stayed in a sleeping cabin. Although we had everything... More

Rented a sleeping cabin for two nights. $145 a night. One room cabin with two beds and a small bathroom. You're not hanging out in your room much so it's ok. Was clean and even had toiletries. Lake is small but pretty. We fished, but didn't catch anything. There is a nice hiking trail around the lake. Josh was helpful... More

Our family wanted to stay in Custer State Park so we chose Legion Lake. We had a cabin which suited our needs perfectly. We didn't want to camp in a tent. This cabin was great. Still in the woods. Still in nature. Close to everything in the park. Great home base for our young family of 4.

I stayed in cabin # 22. Bring your own bottled water. My water was yellow coming out of the tap and very smelly to take a shower in. I was raised on well water that was sometimes rusty- this cabin water was worse. I think the Sylvan lodge area is a lot nicer. There is more to do (boat rentals,... More

My experience with the cabin was average as we found the cabin too small for a 2 bedroom cabins and its pricy. I requested for a crib and the lodge people forgot put even after reminding them couple of days before the stay so i had to wait for them to bring the crib after i checked in. The cabins... More

2 of us stayed in a small sleeping cabin for 2 nights. The cabin was not that clean (dusty baseboards, hair and a bug in the tub, carpet hadn't been cleaned in awhile). The cabin was quaint, but did not have an especially good view of anything, and was up the hill and quite a ways from the lodge/restaurant/store, making... More
