BlueEyedScorpio - Cattail Lodge

Russ H. - Cabin

TripAdvisor Review: “I would recommend Canyon Lake Resort to everyone – it was very clean, affordable, family friendly, and a beautiful setting to boot. The most outstanding part of the resort is the staff. They will go out of their way to make sure your needs are met, that you have everything and even stop to chat with you about the local history and get to know you a bit. We really felt a part of the family while visiting. It is not an upscale place but very comfortable and fun.”

Hiattd - Motel Room

TripAdvisor Review: “We stayed in the small hotel section; discovered in the “Visit Rapid City” booklet at the South Dakota Visitor Center on I-90. I randomly selected Canyon Lake Resort given it’s location and name. I called ahead while on I-90 and booked a motel room for the evening ~ I knew Sturgis was gearing up within the week!

We stayed in the motel; room was comfortable and quaint. The evening staff was engaging, friendly and gave us some ideas for dinner. They went above and beyond ~ I left my library book (new release) in the room – the staff readily volunteered to send it to me! Instead, I stopped on my return trip home.

The location of this resort and motel is restful and scenic! The motel room price was a bonus during the summer’s peak season! I recommend this resort area to anyone that’s interested in location, price, environment and friendly staff!”

Lois K. - Motel Room

TripAdvisor Review: “The Cattail lodge and Motel rooms are beautiful. The staff Lynn and Sally were very helpful with all our needs. I will and have recommended this place to my friends. If I ever return to Rapid City I will stay at the Cayon Lake Resort. Rapid City was our home base for a week and it worked very well for our needs.”

Yvonne H. - Cattail Lodge + Motel Rooms

TripAdvisor Review: “The Cattail Lodge and the 3 motel rooms we rented housed a group of 18 people, which made for gatherings very helpful with the accommodations in the lodge. We were able to prepare meals and had enough seating for everyone, both inside and outside. Nice game room but did not use, had sight-seeing to do. Housekeeping picked-up/delivered towels on a daily basis and made beds as needed. The 12 adults that occupied the lodge had to be on a rotating bathroom schedule due to just 2 bathrooms, but were able to make it work.”

KMC-126 - Cattail Lodge

TripAdvisor Review: “The staff were friendly and willing to help us find our way to local attractions, even offering recommendations on local events and restaurants. The cabins had a slightly dated feel, which we actually loved. Despite the fact that we were in a cabin right by the main office, it was very quiet and relaxing. The cabin itself was clean, had a great air conditioner, and even included a larger-than-expected bathroom. We loved the free paddle-boat rental and close proximity to Rapid City, while still giving you the feel of a vacation getaway. Dependable Wi-Fi was included, which was much needed on the one rainy night during our trip. We would definitely come back.”

Brian K. - Cabin

TripAdvisor Review: “We stayed in a 2 bedroom cabin for a week. Worked out perfect. The resort is centrally located to all the attractions in the Black Hills. We especially enjoyed Sally. She was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend Canyon Lake Resort to family and friends!”

Mary J. - 2 Bedroom Cabin

TripAdvisor Review: “I stayed here this past weekend and used the Cattail Lodge cabin as headquarters for my destination wedding. We were greeted with friendly staff and a simple check-in. The lodge is huge! There are 5 bedrooms and lots of open space. The patio opens to exquisite views of Canyon Lake. There is a very large dining room and living room. We set up the tables banquet style and were able to sit with our entire party. I enjoyed the stay immensely and would consider using it again in the future!”
