This campground is unbelievable. It’s a few blocks from downtown with showers. It was $25 night for tenting. Most campsites had fire rings and picnic tables. Very busy - but super friendly and safe. Drove about 15 min to Deadwood and about an hour to Mt Rushmore. I will come back.
You cannot find a place to camp more darling than this. Clean, spacious, affordable. Staff was great. Bike paths were awesome and plentiful. You can bike all across town. Fish Hatchery entertaining and wonderful. Don’t miss driving 14A for spectacular views. The town is cute. Entire experience was beautiful.
Like the title says, this campground on the edge of Spearfish is very well maintained and quite beautiful. Unfortunately the RV/Camper section is extremely cramped…the distance between sites is mere feet. The creek is very peaceful but oh is it cold!
We ended up going during sturgis bike week (unplanned). The campers around us were very nice and everyone was helpful getting us setup. The campground was kept up really nice and everything was very clean.
Place was empty. Very well kept and enjoyable. Love the creek going through. It was full so lots of wonderful sound.
I'll definitely be staying at this campground on my next visit to the Black Hills. Very nice for tent camping or boondocking with a small trailer. If you are looking for full RV hookups, they do have them but the RV sites are a bit tighter than I might prefer.
We tent camped here for a night. All tent sites are given out on a first come first serve basis. We got a quiet spot along the Spearfish River for $25/night. This campground has an awesome bathroom and shower which require a code to access. Definitely will stay here again.
Camped on a Sunday and there were plenty of open spots in the tent camping area. Everyone had plenty of room and a short walk to the restrooms/showers. Best part of this campsite is the creek that flows literally through the sites. Would highly recommend. No reservations for the primitive sites. Very friendly staff.
We stayed at this campsite for one night on our way down to Mount Rushmore, it was a Thursday night early September. We picked a site near the back of the camp grounds located near the creek and close to a small parking lot (close by to the pet exercise area on the map - though it's labelled as an ice rink on grounds). From this site, we were close to the bathrooms (which had both toilet stalls and shower stalls) and drinking water. The campground is quite large, with a lot of space for RVs and tent-campers as well. As a primitive camper, we were located quite close to other campers but everyone was respectful and we slept peacefully through the night. Each primitive campsite had a nearby picnic table, that was great for meal times. Being next to the creek was additionally peaceful, as we could hear the water through the night (which I enjoyed, though other sites are far enough away that you don't have to hear the water if you wouldn't want to).
The camp grounds is located close to the DC Booth Hatchery which is an interesting piece of the local history, and provided us with the opportunity to see some Rainbow Trout.
On the way out of the campgrounds, we were presented with an incredible opportunity to see a large bird of prey making off with a large Trout in its talons.
Great for family camping, or for a place to stop for a few nights but not what you're looking for if you're hoping to be out in the back woods.
Facilities are really nice I won’t lie, we just didn’t like how close every site was and how crowded it felt. Had two nights reserved cancelled after the first to find something more our style. Cancel by 11am for refund.
