State Game Lodge Pavilion

Full-Service Catering

Conveniently nestled among the pine trees directly west of the Game Lodge, our Pavilion is a pristine 4,000 square foot gabled roof shelter. With banquet seating for 350+ guests in a picture-perfect park setting, the Pavilion and the neighboring Lover's Leap Ceremony Deck allows you to combine the luxurious beauty of an outdoor event with the convenience of a safe haven from an unexpected Black Hills shower. After dark, enjoy s'mores around the group fire pit.
