Visited on a hot day. Grandkids enjoyed themselves in the water and on the playground area. Nice beach area; beautiful scenery. If you kayak, great place to go. Other kids were catching lots of fish.

That's my opinion, but we have been all over Custer State Park through the years, and we stayed here for the first time in June. I think Blue Bell is the best, but this is a close second. We chose Stockade Lake - South to...More

This is one of the larger lakes in the hills. There is lots of room here to hike and explore and lots of shoreline to fish.
