Depending on your preference, we are 

now offering an annual gold membership 

or a lifetime platinum membership.*    




*Please note that membership is not required to partake in any of our outdoor adventure opportunities. 

Each of our friends has unique requirements, and we hope that you can utilize our services 

in the best way to fit your needs. We can also customize any of our membership programs 

or all-inclusive packages specifically to match your hunting and fishing plans. 

Our best ideas come from our hunters. While attending outdoor shows around the country, more and more prospective clients are requesting information about membership programs. When we discuss what they’re seeking, the message that we hear again and again is their desire to secure a lifetime of privileges and priority status through an exclusive membership at a lodge with amazing hunting, great food, friendly staff and comfortable beds. Basically, they want a hunting “home” where they can visit any time they want, bring whoever they want, and have their run of the lodge.    As the bird population dwindles in other states, there is a sense of urgency to protect and preserve this proud tradition in South Dakota. 

The Magic of Pheasant Hunting

An hour after leaving the Sioux Falls airport and all the hustle and bustle behind, your cares and concerns start to fade. Driving across the heart of the Northern Great Plains, you get a sense of just how vast the land is with 180 million acres of rolling prairie grass. Right about the time you cross Wolf Creek, it hits you — this is the great American West and you’re smack-dab right in the heart of it. 

You’re going back in time on this hunting trip. Long before the railroad, the Lewis and Clark Expedition came through these parts back in 1804. The great buffalo herds thundered across this ground. Just up the road a stretch is where Hugh Glass was attacked and mauled by a grizzly bear in 1823. Left for dead, the fur-trader crawled for weeks to reach Fort Kiowa, ensuring a future movie, The Revenant

Back before he became President of the United States, Teddy Roosevelt hunted bison here in Dakota Territory. The fiery individualist and great outdoorsman ended up buying the Elkhorn Ranch on the banks of the Missouri River and running cattle. Another President, Calvin Coolidge, turned the State Game Lodge right in the Black Hills into the White House in the summer of 1927 and kicked-off the construction of Mount Rushmore. 

Ernest Hemingway was here in 1936. Before going on to become a famous American writer, he hunted pheasants at a lodge on the Big Sioux River outside Wentworth. Legend has it that Hemingway went through a case of White Horse Scotch and wrote 50,000 words by candlelight in his rocking chair on the front porch for a novel that would later win him a Pulitzer Prize. 

You quit daydreaming about big shots and turn off onto Old State Highway 16. This is Kimball, South Dakota, population 642. It also just so happens to be the pheasant hunting capital of the world. Past the old clapboard Methodist Church, the grain elevator and the rusted, neon Budweiser sign, the road winds curves left and the anticipation builds. 

A few miles down a dusty, gravel road you come up over a hill in Smith Township and suddenly 900-miles from nowhere, you’re here. The fire pit is burning. The smell of prime rib and bourbon hangs in the air. This isn’t just any hunting lodge. This is the Lodge. The Legend. The Legacy. The Dakota Prairie Lodge and Resort. 

Like Roosevelt, Hemingway and the other great adventurers and outdoorsmen who’ve come through these parts, you’re destined to write your own hunting adventure story out here on the wide prairie.

Choice of commemorative Black Hills Gold jewelry – tiepin, necklace or earrings

Manufactured in the Black Hills mountain range of South Dakota, this gold jewelry is named after the beautiful mountain range of the North American Great Plains that was once inhabited by Native American tribes. The mountainous range was filled with gold and attracted many prospectors during the gold rush in the 1870s. Black Hills Gold jewelry is distinctive for its unique designs and colors. The pink and green gold shades are created by alloying the gold with silver to produce green and with copper to produce pink. Each piece of the jewelry — leaves, grapes, and stems — are designed and created separately, and then soldered together onto the piece of jewelry.
