About Battle Creek Lodge

Battle Creek Lodge

Nestled amidst spectacular rocks above historic Battle Creek in Keystone, South Dakota, this cozy lodge provides a nostalgic hideaway in a convenient plain-sight location. Rated as one of the best values in the Southern Black Hills, Battle Creek Lodge is the biggest treasure in the Hills. Clean, Cozy, and Comfortable are just a few ways to describe our lodge - and the outstanding service, beautiful setting, and attention to detail are a few of the reasons you'll want to stay.

Rooms & Amenities

Battle Creek Lodge Room

We have a total of ten (10) guest rooms. Six (6) of our rooms have two (2) queen beds in them. Three (3) of the rooms have one (1) king bed along with a small sitting area and a table with 2 chairs. Our last room has one queen bed. All of our rooms have a standard bathroom with a bathtub/shower. Flat-screen TVs, coffee pots, and blow dryers, along with a small area to hang your clothing, can be found in all rooms.

Due to storage constraints, we do not offer rollaway beds or cots. We do have extra bedding available if requested in advance. Fire codes restrict the number of people per room to no more than 5.

We are always trying to better meet the needs of our guests, so please don’t hesitate to call us if you don’t see something you need. We may have it or might be able to make it happen.

Free Breakfast

Our Complimentary Deluxe Continental Breakfast is served “family style” in the lobby every morning. We have a featured item - a special item that is always hot, fresh, and tasty! - that changes daily. Some examples of favorite featured items are French Toast and Sausage, Biscuits and Gravy, and Homemade Cinnamon Rolls and Scrambled Eggs. In addition to the featured item of the day, we serve a full continental breakfast with hot and cold cereals, assorted bread, fruit, juice, etc.

Outdoor Fire Pit

Nothing is more beautiful than night time in the Black Hills -- EXCEPT standing around a fire at night time in the Black Hills! With that in mind, we made a fantastic addition to Battle Creek Lodge recently with a beautiful outdoor gas fire pit for our guests to enjoy. Sitting on the side deck of the lodge, the fire pit is a perfect place to wind down after an event-filled day. Return home from the lighting ceremony at Mount Rushmore and help the kids make s'mores, or enjoy a glass of wine and some good conversation around the fire.


Fresh Hot Coffee is always available in the lobby during lobby hours.


In an effort to provide more convenience for our guests, we do have a BBQ grill on site for your use.

Outdoor Sitting Areas

We feel lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world and we try to share as much of that world with you as we can. We have many sitting areas located around the lodge and the property for our guests to use. We encourage you to use these areas and to walk around and take in the beauty that surrounds you.


The free parking area is directly in front of the lodge and is free for Battle Creek Lodge Guests.

If you are traveling with a trailer or more than one vehicle, please let us know so we can make arrangements to accommodate additional parking if needed
