About the property

Four Bedroom, Three Full Bathrooms, Two Dining Rooms, Two Living Rooms

Deer Glen Vacation Lodge is the perfect base camp for exploring the Black Hills. Three of the four bedrooms each have two queen beds and the fourth bedroom has a full size bed. In addition, each of the two living rooms has a sofa sleeper, for a total of 9 beds in all. Three full bathrooms means nobody has to wait. While there is In-house laundry, we are also happy to exchange your towels and linens as often as you wish so that you don't have to concern yourself with chores.. A large two and a half car fully finished garage, and a wonderful deck with deck furniture, picnic tables, and gas grills for those great evening bar-b-q's. Deer Glen is surrounded with lots of manicured lawn and trees with plenty of room to set up a volley ball net, play Frisbee, or just play a little catch. We have a wonderful playground for the little ones with climbers, slides and swings. Bike rentals and paddleboat rentals are available right on the site. Our on-site staff is always available to answer questions, help you make plans, and offer suggestions. Naturally if something in the Lodge needs attention, they are always available to get it back in order. Additional Cottages and RV Sites available next door at Lake Park Campground.

About Scott Neslon

We have lived within 200 yards of Deer Glen Lodge since 1992. We loved the location then and we continue to love it now. We raised both our children here and one continues to work in the family business, Lake Park Campground and Cottages.

Scott Neslon purchased this house in 2001

Why Scott Neslon chose Black Hills

When Deer Glen Lodge became available in 2001 we jumped at the chance. The Lodge sets next to our home and family business, Lake Park Campground and Cottages. It has been a perfect fit.

What makes this house unique

Deer Glen Lodge gets its name from the many deer that make the surrounding meadow and hillside their home. Many visitors get to see a variety of wildlife at Deer Glen.

Beautiful Black Hills vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Deer Glen Lodge for a family vacation that included 7 adults and 7 children (4 households).With two living room areas (upstairs and downstairs) we had plenty of space for adults to visit and kids to play. The house was clean and the staff was helpful and friendly. We would definitely visit again!

Exactly What We Wanted!

  • 5 of 5

We just left here today and I wanted to make sure I gave it the excellent review it deserves! The campground was quiet, clean and great location for what we had planned (crazy horse, bear country, keystone).

We stayed in the Deer Glenn Lodge and it was clean, quaint, and very spacious! Plenty of room for 8 adults and 7 kids. The two grills and deck made it easy and relaxing for the whole family to enjoy being outside. It was a great vacation and Deer Glenn Lodge had a lot to do with that! And Monty was very friendly and helpful!

Great place to stay!

Deer Glen Lodge is ideally located to take in all the Black Hills has to offer. Just thirty minutes to Mt Rushmore and easy central access to all Black Hills attractions. Many within 15 minutes. Located in a park like setting by Canyon Lake on Rapid City's west side, while at the same time being only four miles from downtown shops and dining.. Miles of paved biking and hiking paths around the lake and following Rapid Creek. Bike rentals and paddleboat rentals on site. Our on-site staff loves to share their favorite dining locations and outdoor activity locations. Additional smaller cottages available on site if you have additional families. Our goal is for your family to leave with great memories.
