We stayed in a small sleeping cabin there. It did have comfortable beds, a microwave and refrigerator, and decent sized bathroom. Sort of outdated and rustic, but that is expected in a cabin. Firepit and plastic chairs outside. NOT close to the lake - too far to walk down a big hill to get there. The lodge had a nice... More

The cabin is in a wooded area. At least the ones I saw/stayed were not by the lake. I knew that while I booked, so no issues. But the walk to the lake is a short one. Cabin as such is basic. But maintained well. Not fancy at all. There are cabins adjacent. But felt we had enough privacy. And... More

If you are looking to unplug and love nature, this is the place for you. We had a housekeeping unit with kitchenette, pots, pans, utensils, etc., microwave, mini fridge, 2 burner stove, and coffee pot. The bathroom was standard tub/shower combo with hairdryer included...and LOTS of towels. There were 3 beds. Central heat/air. Flat screen tv. We were off exploring... More

I viewed their site, cabins nice and freshly decorated. Ours was clean, and that is about all I can say. Plastic chairs provided to sit outside were broken and viewed nothing but another residents camper parked across from our cabin. One could walk easily to the lake where the cabins which looked out seemed much nicer but the differance were... More

We stayed in cabin 22. It was adorable with everything we needed. The setting in the woods was so magnificent. This isn't for someone seeking luxury but definitely for you if you're looking to enjoy the outdoors and beautiful setting. So relaxing! The lodge has good hamburgers and veggie burgers and the lake is just beautiful with paddle boarding, kayaks,... More

We stayed in a 1-queen-bed "sleeping cabin" for 5 nights. Beware this type of cabin is quite small. 1 room featuring a queen bed, a nice large sofa (seating for 3-4), and a mini-fridge + mini microwave. + bathroom & half a closet. If you were to fold out the sofa bed, it would pretty much take up all the... More

While most cabins are sleep only, there are some with kitchens. Our remodeled cabin was small but very nice. The main building is new opening June 2016. It has a gift shop and an order at the counter restaurant with a great view. We like this place because it is compact--you can see the whole lake from the Lodge and... More

Incredible scenery, sleeping cabins are just that-for sleeping and not much else. Cabin was clean with daily service. Nice area outside cabin for coffee or evening snack. Make sure you do the iron mountain drive to Mt Rushmore and the Needles Highway drive to Sylvan Lake

I'm a park employee and had the chance to stop by and eat at the newly built Legion Lake Lodge. It's fast casual dining, unlike the other lodges in the park. The line was fairly long when I arrived plus they were running only one POS. It looked like there were two, but I'm not for certain. However, I was... More

We stayed here in July 2016 with our 2 small children in a 2 room cabin overlooking the lake. Our cabin was new and very comfortable. Nice separate bedroom for the children. Full bathroom including tub. Nice touches like animal quilts on the bed. Our deck overlooked the beautiful lake. We loved swimming in the picturesque lake and kids loved... More
