We stayed in a two person housekeeping cabin (#8) which was adequate for our day hiking ambitions. The cabin possessed a range/sink/fridge combo and a few kitchen essentials. Advice: if you want to prepare your own food, then bring your own plates, cups, etc. The bathroom was tiny but the provided toilet and shower were adequate.
The cabin was roomy enough, and it is in livable condition, nothing fancy. The on-site store is handy for convenience items, knick-knacks, gifts, and short order foods. The weather was poor when we visited in early June (2009), so if you are staying in a cabin during cold weather: ask for more blankets and another heater. We did not... and regretted it.
The location is very helpful: the resort is near Custer State Park (~2-3 miles curvy road), within ~5 miles of Mount Rushmore, and depending on your exit choice - 50-75 miles from the Badlands (highly recommended).
We love budget conscious lodging and this helped ($72/night plus tax). You can find cheaper cabin accommodations if you bring your own bedding around the area, but we did not see many that furnished bedding.
Great area to vacation, enjoy!More
