The Black Fox Campground has nine camp sites. Restroom facilities are available. The campground is in a remote location within a spruce forest on South Fork Rapid Creek. The Black Fox Botanical Area is adjacent to the campground. A snowmobile trail with a warming hut is available. The campground is popular on weekends.
The drive to Black Fox is along quite a few ranches and follows a river. The drive is enjoyable and not very difficult to handle. The campground is right along the river. The rapids made music that is peaceful and inviting.
A large group of ATVs drove in to picnic. Along with one other family, the campground was pretty empty.
What better camp than right along a bubbling river? Off road trails are the closest draw. The Michelson trail has an access point a few miles down the road. Pay the access fee and enjoy the trail with hikers, bikers, and horses.
Although some of the sites had a bit too much water and were muddy, the bulk of the 9 sites were perfect.
Nestled up in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota, Black Fox is our 'go to' campground because of how small it is. 8-10 sites that are spread out so you're not right beside other campers. Black Fox has 1 vaulted toilet and every camp site has its own fire pit and picnic table. There is a small creek that runs right behind many of the camp sites so if you feel like doing a little rainbow trout fishing, you can. If your not into fishing, just hop on to your ATV and go explore the many trails that are situated right around the campground. Not only will you be able to enjoy nature, but you will see elk, deer, turkey and if your lucky, a mountain lion!
