The Timon Campground has seven campsites located in Little Spearfish Canyon, adjacent to Little Spearfish Creek.
Small campground with a more primitive feel tucked away off a rough gravel road. We stayed here over the summer one night and had an awesome experience with only one other site occupied. We enjoyed the spring creek rushing through next to our site and there is a breathtaking trail not too far past the site.
Spearfish highway scenic drive goes right by the forest road to this campground. There is a big tourist stop and the turn-off. Once you get past that the road turns to gravel and the beauty continues.
Timon campground is small. One loop with 7 sites. About half were filled up when we came here. A clean vault toilet and interesting water pump provide the necessities.
There is a historic marker that leads you to a Flume site. Just down the road is a trailhead for a hiking trail. ATV roads are here too.
We did see a lot of traffic. People driving to look at the Dances With Wolves film site as well as visitors to the Roughneck Rapids. This is a nice place to visit.
