Sylvan Lake Lodge Accommodations

Sylvan Lake Lodge

Rich in history and natural beauty, Sylvan Lake Lodge holds the designation of Custer State Park's "crown jewel". In 1895, a Victorian-style hotel opened its doors on the shores of Sylvan Lake. The hotel was a popular site for many Black Hills vacationers until it burned to the ground in 1935. The current hotel was opened in 1937, and the new wing was added in 1991. The hotel features cozy lodge rooms, a lobby, a lounge, and a restaurant. Several rustic-but-modernized cabins are nestled amongst the pine and spruce forest. 

Sylvan Lake Lodge has a total of 67 units, including 35 lodge rooms and 32 cabins. All units have telephones, flat screen TVs, and coffee pots. The units are all climate controlled, fully furnished, and include daily housekeeping service. Pets are allowed in select cabins for an additional $10 per pet, per night.

Guest laundry facilities are located on-site near the general store. The lodge does have an elevator.

Sylvan Lake Lodge includes a full-service restaurant, general store, and banquet facilities. Boat rentals are also available.
