We stayed here for 3 nights after spending 3 nights closer in custer. Well maintained campground, our site was right across the road from the Creek. We stayed in July and the city of Spearfish had activities in the park (about 1/4 mile away) every evening (magician, concerts, etc). The hatchery was great as well. We spent a lot of time exploring Spearfish Canyon/Roughlock Falls/Lead/etc but spent one day just to relax at the campground/hatchery/Park. It was great.
Campsites were pretty close together but it was not anywhere near full when we were there so we had plenty of space. Paved roads were great for kids to ride their bikes.
We stayed here for 6 nights in March. One night we got snowed in and another night we slept with open windows! 😂
Beautiful scenery, neat atmosphere. You do have to be active or retired military to stay here, or have a sponsor with you.
Bathrooms were clean hot showers. Decent sized laundromat. A lot of full timers there when we were there so we were a little bit of the “odd man out” but I imagine the summer crowd is different!
rated 4 stars because there were no campfire pits, it wasn’t really a huge deal but it would have been nice.
