This is a beautiful Lake. Chilly on a cold day but you will be happy you toured this Lake. The scenery is amazing. Would highly recommend.

We stopped by this lake as we were driving thru the area. There is a store with food there & a nice deck to hang out on to admire this very pretty lake.

We stayed in the Legion Lake Campground, spot 12E. The campground was great. Nice and quiet, clean with shower and bathroom facilities. We had electric hook-up as well. The lake is small so you can hike around it, but scenic. It was great for paddle boarding and you can rent boards or kayaks at the Lodge. We really enjoyed our... More

I caught my first South Dakota bass here on a topwater lure. We were just fishing from the little dock and WHAMMO! They offer breakfast, lunch and dinner. They have a local artist showcase as well as souvenirs for all. Definitely check out this place.

We stayed at Legion Lake Lodge in Custer State Park for 4 days. It was difficult to find, as it is 7 miles inside the park. GPS does not get you there. We had to call the desk to get directions. Once there, it was great! Our cabin was a 5 person sleeping cabin. We had 3 adults, and it... More

This is a man-made lake but that doesn't make the scenery any less beautiful. We rented a paddle boat, had some lunch and then hiked around it. It was a great three- or four-hour activity!
