The Silver Sioux Lodge, built in 1975, was originally a rustic warming shelter for winter visitors to the tubing hill. Operation of the tubing hill rope lift was ceased in the late 1990s due to maintenance and safety concerns.

The Lodge has since received several updates and now includes a full kitchen, an indoor restroom complete with a handicap-accessible shower, a wood burning stove, sitting area, three bedrooms with full-size beds and an outdoor patio with a fire ring, new 3'x3' charcoal grill and permanent landscaping provide the perfect setting for a comfortable "camp-out."

Tables and chairs seating for up to 24 visitors.

Renters must provide their own bedding and towels.
