Although the lake views and grounds were good and the staff was polite, the cabins were EXTREMELY dated....from the kitchen appliances to the livingroom furniture and walls to the bedroom furniture to the carpets! It didn't seem as though anything was < 20+ years old (stains included). When the 4 of us walked into the room I decided not to... More

Clean enough for us, but sheets uncomfortable, one of 2 beds uncomfortable, and our motel room a bit dated. but given that the season was in full swing in Rapid City the $100 + per night was about the most reasonable in the area. Staff polite and responsive. The "resort" (it once was a resort) is situated on a nice... More

There is a large living area with a dining table that seats 18. The kitchen is fully furnished with dishes, silverware, pots and pans, and a coffee maker. The... More

We stayed in a small 2 bedroom cabin. The cabin is quite dated but comfortable. A fire pit was set outside the cabin which we lit and sat around chatting with other guests. A bbq is available nearby. The lake is very pretty but no views from the room. However a group of 8 deer walked past our cabin one... More

We as a family rented the smaller of the big cabins and it was perfect for the 15 of us. The rest of our friends and family rented the rest of the cabins and we all gathered to eat and visit at the bigger cabin. Worked great. The staff is friendly and social and most of all helpful.
