My husband and I stayed at a cabin in the Legion Lake campground. It was not very nice, old bed spreads, sheets, etc. Plus, the water was yellow and stunk like metal or iron! I couldn't even brush my teeth! It was WAY overpriced also. Plus, the service was not very friendly and a bit absent-minded. Live and learn!

Ate here twice. Food was pretty decent, but it'll take you 15 minutes to get that second cup of coffee. Service is so slow. I know it vacation and what's the hurry but the staff here as well as other Custer resorts is really poor. One morning there were only 2 servers for breakfast and there are about 17 tables/booths...

We stayed in a cabin and loved it. If you want sterile air-conditioned Hampton Inns and get upset if there is a stain on the carpet or the soap dish is not wrapped in hygenic plastic, stay elsewhere. These are throwback family vacation cottages of the kind that all travelers used to stay in back in the 60's. The beds... More

DO NOT STAY HERE!! They have BED BUGS!! So I checked the reviews here & they were all good so we booked! There are cuter & better locations in the park but this was the only lodging with rooms left. Upon arrival the room was not overly impressive, looked worn out & old, but then we noticed it must not... More

The food was excellent, however it was cold. We had to share a large table with another couple, but there was still plenty of room. We stopped at this restaurant just about every morning for Starbucks. The coffee at the State Game Lodge was terrible.

Reserving a year in advance has its perks! We got Cabin #1, right on the lake with a great view, but yet a bit away from the noise of the little beach. Family of four, the kids had the separate room and it was a bit of a squeeze with suitcases. Great to be able to do our own cooking... More

Our family of 5 reserved a sleeper cabin (two queen beds, full bathroom, fridge, microwave, coffee maker) since nothing larger was available. Two of us slept in our RV while the rest of us slept in the cabin, which worked out just fine. Our cabin was #20, which is at the end of the road, so we had beautiful, forested... More

Legion Lake cabins were excellent, the cabin had plenty of room, clean and have good facilities to cook. Beds were good and the cabins are so quite with great A/C. The cabins are close to the water, for those that want to be right next to the water, then this should not be your expectation. The fishing was great and... More

Awesome little resort that is slightly secluded but close to what you see in Custer State Park. The resort has a small family feel and is nowhere like being rushed in nearby Keystone. We had a sleeping cabin and it was better than we thought and felt like home. The cabin had a fridge, coffee pot, full bathroom and to... More

We booked a 7 person housekeeping cabin 7 months in advance. I spent at least half an hour or more on the phone with the booking agent to find the right spot for our family vacation. We were considering all of the Custer State Park resorts, and the reservation agent felt Legion Lake resort would be best for us as... More
