We got married and had our reception in the Sylvan Lake Lodge Auditorium, and it was AWESOME. The banquet captain and manager were so helpful. We had about 60 candles set up throughout the building and we sent help to light them before the ceremony, and they were all already lit... Read More and gorgeous. The bartender made sure everyone was taken care of, plates were cleared very quickly, and the chairs from the ceremony were packed up in less than 20 minutes. It was perfect.

Location was beautiful but staff was unfriendly and unhelpful the entire time. Horrible customer service to someone spending multiple thousands at their facility.

Custer State Park Location

PLUS: The staff was absolutely fabulous the day of the event. I was nervous planning my wedding from out of state and not personally being there to set up. They went so far as to even light the candles on our centerpieces before my friends got there to do that after the... Read More ceremony. There staff was also very willing to answer any questions. MINUS: Read all of the fine print carefully and stay on top of dates. I feel as though they have a lot of events at this location so they don't always comb through all of the details and make sure everything is accurate on the first attempt.
