Date of Stay: July 3-7, 2008. We really were impressed with the beauty of the Black Hills and wish we could have stayed longer. We had two cabins for our family of 6, we did not have Kitchenettes in the cabin but enjoyed the fire pits and great restaurants. We also had flat screen TVS but the hot water was sometimes a problem for four showers.
We had cabins 21 & 22, which were at the end of the road so we surrounded by trees and wildlife. The staff was friendly and helpful and I would heartily recommend this resort. We also visited Blue Bell and Sylvan Lake which were different but also nice.
Unlike Sylvan lake which can get fairly crowded on the weekends, Legion Lake was less crowded and very pretty. I think the location of the resort is the best of all the Custer Resorts. We had a very nice time visiting Mount Rushmore, Wind Cave, Jewel Cave, Mammoth Site, Custer, and Crazy Horse. We saw a large amount of wildlife and really enjoyed the State run programs that can keep you busy for at least a week.
