We stayed in a small 2 bedroom cabin. The cabin is quite dated but comfortable. A fire pit was set outside the cabin which we lit and sat around chatting with other guests. A bbq is available nearby. The lake is very pretty but no views from the room. However a group of 8 deer walked past our cabin one...

We as a family rented the smaller of the big cabins and it was perfect for the 15 of us. The rest of our friends and family rented the rest of the cabins and we all gathered to eat and visit at the bigger cabin. Worked great. The staff is friendly and social and most of all helpful.

We came out to South Dakota to see Mount Rushmore and a couple of other places, and Canyon Lake Resort was the perfect location in order to do this. It's close enough to town that it doesn't feel out of the way to go to a store or restaurant, but the views from the cabins don't make you feel as...

I attended a reunion there in September 2015 and loved the resort. The cabins are bit dated, but the beds are brand new. Some of the guests had problems with bees in their rooms, but that was promptly taken care of. The innkeepers were warm and friendly and the location is ideal if you want to relax without hearing traffic.

We had a reunion of the 44th Strategic Missile Wing (Black Hills Bandits) on 24 - 27 September. The wing was deactivated in 1994 and this was the first large attempt at getting as many past missileers together as possible. Lynn Derby, our host at Canyon Lake, was absolutely fabulous! We reserved the Cattail Lodge back in April 2015 and...

My husband and I had a bunch of friends stay in the lower half of the newly remodeled lodge. The lodge is absolutely gorgeous! It overlooks the beautiful Canyon Lake. The staff was amazing. They made sure we had everything we needed to make our stay stress free, and enjoyable.
