Clean cabins that provide everything you need. They are located right in Custer yet back off the highway slightly to give you that "in the woods" feel. Watched deer grazing off our front deck. Staff was very pleasant to work with and even let us look at one of the cabins before booking. Would recommend checking these cabins out.

Stayed in a cabin with a deck and loft. It had a furnished kitchenette and couches with two beds in the loft. Large bathroom with a double sink. Breakfast was great and April is just amazing. She has about as much energy as our kids!

Since we booked this only 2 days in advance we were very pleased with the accommodations. We had one of the queen loft cabins which was perfect for our family of 5. Two queen beds in the loft and a pull out in the main cabin. We were happy to have the kitchen, as the continental breakfast was minimal. We... More

My Husband and I stayed in the hot tub cabin on our recent trip to SD. I wish we had spent a few more days in the area and stayed at Rock Creek Ledge longer. Our cabin was clean, modern and had great air conditioning. There was a beautiful fireplace for cooler weather. The best part was the hot tub... More

Extraordinarily clean, super helpful and friendly staff, and centrally located. Our cozy room was well thought out for the traveler. The room was equipped with a kitchenette, wide array of toiletries, and had an elegant log cabin decor without being kitsch. We enjoyed sitting outside under the front porch staying dry from the rain. We would definitely recommend and look... More

We were tired of overpriced motels. We decided to try a cabin b a creek. We found it here at Rock Crest Lodge. The owner provided us with a clean room and really good information about sites that were worth seeing. It is enjoyable to deal with nice people.

My husband and I just needed to stop en route home to CO, traveling across the country from the East. This lodge was perfectly adequate and pleasant -- quiet, clean, coffee pot that worked in the room, 'fridge, also nice little breakfast for guests. They were sweet enough to lay out gluten free break for me even! And if you're... More

Rock Crest Lodge is a fantastic location to explore the Black Hills. It is adjacent to Custer State Park, Mt. Rushmore, and Crazyhorse Memorial. We met our daughters and their families there to spend some outdoor adventures with the boys ages 10, 8, and 6. The younger families had a great cabin at the top of the hill, where the... More

The cabins were clean with great patios to enjoy the gorgeous view. The beds were not very comfortable but that was the only downside. Located very close to Mount Rushmore and many big attractions. Front desk was very nice and helpful with things to do in the area.

The whole property is very clean and there is a clear effort to keep it that way. The cabins seem new and are put off from the main road far enough to make them feel somewhat secluded and are backed by a forest. We were able to see multiple deer both nights from the cabin porch and were able to... More
