Sylvan Lake Resort

24572 S.D. 87, Custer, South Dakota, 57730, USA

Fodor’s Expert Review

This spacious stone-and-wood lodge in Custer State Park affords fantastic views of pristine Sylvan Lake and Harney Peak, the highest point in the U.S. east of the Rockies. The rooms in the lodge are large and modern, and there are rustic cabins, some with fireplaces, scattered along the cliff and in the forest. The Lakota Dining Room has an exceptional view of the lake; its lovely veranda is the perfect place to sip tea and enjoy an evening cocktail. On the menu are buffalo and rainbow trout. You can canoe, fish, and swim in the lake, and numerous hiking trails make this a great choice for active families.
