DO NOT STAY HERE!! They have BED BUGS!! So I checked the reviews here & they were all good so we booked! There are cuter & better locations in the park but this was the only lodging with rooms left. Upon arrival the room was not overly impressive, looked worn out & old, but then we noticed it must not...

The food was excellent, however it was cold. We had to share a large table with another couple, but there was still plenty of room. We stopped at this restaurant just about every morning for Starbucks. The coffee at the State Game Lodge was terrible.

Reserving a year in advance has its perks! We got Cabin #1, right on the lake with a great view, but yet a bit away from the noise of the little beach. Family of four, the kids had the separate room and it was a bit of a squeeze with suitcases. Great to be able to do our own cooking...

Our family of 5 reserved a sleeper cabin (two queen beds, full bathroom, fridge, microwave, coffee maker) since nothing larger was available. Two of us slept in our RV while the rest of us slept in the cabin, which worked out just fine. Our cabin was #20, which is at the end of the road, so we had beautiful, forested...

Legion Lake cabins were excellent, the cabin had plenty of room, clean and have good facilities to cook. Beds were good and the cabins are so quite with great A/C. The cabins are close to the water, for those that want to be right next to the water, then this should not be your expectation. The fishing was great and...

Awesome little resort that is slightly secluded but close to what you see in Custer State Park. The resort has a small family feel and is nowhere like being rushed in nearby Keystone. We had a sleeping cabin and it was better than we thought and felt like home. The cabin had a fridge, coffee pot, full bathroom and to...

We booked a 7 person housekeeping cabin 7 months in advance. I spent at least half an hour or more on the phone with the booking agent to find the right spot for our family vacation. We were considering all of the Custer State Park resorts, and the reservation agent felt Legion Lake resort would be best for us as...

If you enjoy nature. If you want a central location in the best part of the Black Hills. If you have kids or young adults who need to be active. If you are tired of giant megacondo enclaves. If you want hot Starbucks in the middle of nowhere. If you need a cheezy buffalo shirt. This place has a beach...

Cabin was clean, with updated bathrooms, new heater and satellite based Internet... Yet still a rustic style with plenty of privacy and nature! Everyone there was welcoming and hospitable.

As a family of 4, we stayed in a sleeping cabin (no kitchenette). It was very clean, simple and comfortable. It is a small cabin but we stayed for 4 nights with no problems. Of all the places in the park, we preferred Legion Lake because the cabins are away from the main road. There is also the small lake...
