“Pretty”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

This is a really pretty little lake, very tranquil. We didn't fish, but did rent a row boat for a few hours and it was a great way to spend the afternoon. There's a little restaurant nearby that's pretty good and very accommodating to dietary restrictions.

“Part of Custer State Park”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Nice little lake near the middle of Custer State Park. Good place to stop off and maybe get your feet wet and walk around a little bit on your trip through the park.

“A Nice, Little Lake”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

Legion Lake is smaller and less popular than Sylvan Lake and it's fun to rent a canoe and paddle around the lake in the afternoon. Legion Lake Campground is directly across the two-lane road from the lake and is very convenient.

“The beach is disgusting!!! Use CAUTION!”
Reviewed September 15, 2012 via mobile

We stopped at this lake to swim and cool off. The beach seems to also be used as a pet area. (lots of poop) It was every where. Very hard to find a place to put down a beach towel. The area and lake was lovely, but the beach area needs to be cleaned up ASAP.

“Have a seat outdoors and enjoy the view!”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

After a wondrous drive through the Black Hills ... stop and stretch your legs and have a picnic at Legion Lake. Feel the cool breeze gently blow, enjoy the beautiful backdrop of glorious rock formations, take a deep breath and say "Life can't get much better than this."

ENJOY :)
