We stopped here because we wanted some pretty lake pictures but it was underwhelming to us. The lake seemed small.

We want to try this lake out next time! I enjoy this gift center! Although it's kind of crowded when shopping it's bright & airy. The staff is friendly. The restrooms are clean!9

We stayed at another lodge about 8 miles away, but the food was less expensive here...so was the beer! Beautiful lake with kayak rentals, gift shop and friendly service. You won't be disappointmed.

When the morning fog lifts off the lake it reveals the hidden beauty of the surrounding scenery and mammoth granite outcroppings seemingly rising right out of the water. Watched fishermen taking decent catches out of here. Public pier.

This is in Custer State Park, plenty of parking and good level walks. A great place to take your time and enjoy

A beautiful lake to fish, kayak, stand up paddle or just walk around. Truly breathtaking and fun for the whole family.

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.

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.
