Sylvan Lake Lodge

The view from Sylvan Lake Resort can't be beat, thanks to architect Frank Lloyd Wright. After the original lakeshore resort burned down in 1935, Wright suggested the current location amidst a forest of pine and spruce trees.

Follow Needles Highway to its dramatic end, where Harney Peak looms overhead and the waters of Sylvan Lake sparkle below. The lake is the center of resort activity. Stop in at the lakeside general store and pick up your rental watercraft of choice. Just next door to the store is Sylvan Lake Auditorium, perfect for your family reunion or group gatherings.

If you're after a little more solitude, throw in a fishing line from shore. Take a swim to cool off, or find a stretch of beach to call your own. At Sylvan Lake you're also close to a network of hiking trails that connects several Black Hills landmarks. At night, try one of our tasty game dishes in the Lakota Dining Room. Then its off to your cozy lodge room or rustic, secluded cabin for a restful night of sleep.
