If you are looking for an adventure while staying at the Lantern Inn, you can explore the Black Elk Wilderness. This rugged terrain is one of the most remote pieces of land in the area and is home to some spectacular wildlife. With almost no roads accessible to motor-vehicles, you can venture out into the area on an undisturbed hike or horse-ride. Hunting, fishing, and camping are all popular activities in the Black Elk Wilderness. Access to the Black Elk Wilderness can be found at multiple locations but the most common is at the Black Elk Peak Trailhead near Sylvan Lake, only a 20-minute drive from Lantern Inn.
