We stayed in the Legion Lake cabins and so the lodge was a great place to stop and grab breakfast quickly. Service was solid. We also had planned to stock our cooler with ice but 4 days straight they were out of bagged ice.

We stayed 5 nights in a cabin at Legion Lake and ate from the Lodge numerous breakfasts, lunches & dinners. The setting is casual "counter service", you can sit inside or outside on the lovely patio or lake deck, or get your order to go. Although the menu is not as large as a "sit-down" restaurant, everything we had was... More

Nice fairly fast place for a burger. Fast except for the lone cashier, with spikes in her face, who is slow. There is only one register. The burgers are good and the sundaes are excellent.

This lodge, has a restaurant, a small store, and cabins of all shapes and sizes. We rented a sleeping cabin which means it didn't have a kitchenette, but it did have an outside table, chairs and a fire pit for cooking. The cabins were comfy, well-decorated and clean. These are cabins that are well off the road and are more... More

Stayed at the Legion Lake Lodge in a small cabin. Very clean, simple with a bed, bathroom, TV and microwave. Lots of pine trees around the cabin and it has a fire pit. Some cabins were located closer to Legion Lake and had a view of the lake. I'm sure those go quickly.

We stayed in the Legion Lake cabins for three nights during our honeymoon road trip at the end of August. We ate two meals at the lodge during our stay (breakfast and dinner). My husband was pleased with his burger and I had their taco salad and chicken enchilada soup for dinner. It was by far the best taco salad... More

We had lunch and breakfast here and were not disappointed. Good service and good suggestions from the staff. Clean, nice surroundings with quick service and quick food to the table. Always good traits when traveling.

We always camp at the Legion Lake Campground when we're at Custer State Park. We've eaten here often through the years. It's a good solid place to dine. The Breakfast Quesasilla was great and eggs, hashbrowns, toast and sausage was good as well. Coffee and service both wonderful. I understand it's going to be rebuilt this next year. I'll be... More

Biscuits and Gravy and omlets were very good and fill you up for a day of adventures in the beautiful state parks. Small menu but good service and good coffee.
