State Park Cabins

My husband and I are on a budget friendly vacation to SD in late Aug. probably 20-25th. We would like to see the sites most tourist want to see, Rushmore, Caves, historical sites and decided Custer was a central location. I would like to reserve a cabin in the state park, but was unable to locate any that had bathrooms inside the cabin. Since I will be six months pregnant I didn't think I would need to travel far in the middle of the night to the facilities.Do any of the cabins have bathrooms? I checked the website and didn't see any. Are there any inexpensive comprable cabins in the area? Does anyone have suggestions?

There are a number of facilities offering cabins (w/ bathrooms) in the southern Black Hills, many who Destination Black Hills, with whom I am a reservation specialist, works with.

Kathy,

I don't know what your budget is, but I noticed that Sylvan Lake Lodge has some cabins listed with private baths for $160 per night. Here's a link:

custerresorts.com/sylvan-lake-lodge-custer-s…

Maybe this is out of your price range? I saw you mentioned inexpensive...

Other Custer lodges have cabins as well that have bathrooms. You definitely want one while pregnant. :)

This will be our 4th trip to SD and our 2nd time staying in a cabin in Custer. Our sleeping cabin had 2 beds and a bath and is $135/night at Legion Lake Lodge. This is not what I would consider budget but we really enjoyed staying in the park during our last visit. Basically, it's a stand-alone hotel room w/o any amenities, such as a pool or free continental breakfast. With that in mind, for the same price or less, you may want to consider staying outside the parks. You'll find plenty of lodging choices for about the same price or less if that better meets your needs in the towns of Custer, Keystone, or Hill City. I am wondering if you have been looking at the camping cabins, which I believe are located within or near the campgrounds, and are basically a hard-walled tent--they look great and economical, but not the best choice for you at this time!

I think I have opted to get on priceline and get a hotel. It really saves alot of $$$$. I did see some pretty cool cabins outside of Custer for $89 a night. Pine Crest or something like that. Those are still an option.
