Spearfish City Campground is a great place to enjoy nature without having to be out of the city limits.  This campground has it all. It is a beautiful setting, Spearfish Creek runs on the north side and Hatchery channel meanders through the tent camping area on the south side.

The campground has 61 full-hookup sites.  They are complete with water, sewer, 50 amp electrical and cable TV.

Tent Camping

The campground has 100 primitive sites for tent camping.  Each spot has a fire ring and a picnic table, plus most are located along Hatchery Channel. Other services include: two restroom and shower buildings.

More about the campground

This a very nice park setting.  The campground is located next to the D.C. Booth Fish Hatchery and Spearfish City Park.  In addition, the area is close enough that you can walk to the downtown area.

Check-out is at Noon and you can check-in at 1pm.  The campground does have quiet hours from 10pm to 8am.  In the wintertime the campground is home to the Madison Ice Rink.

The Snapper Club

The Snapper Club is a historic building located in the City of Spearfish Campground, it was built in 1936 by the Works image Spearfish SD Snapper ClubProgress Administration.  It was once home to the Rifle Club, but now it is available for rent from the City of Spearfish.  It is used for wedding receptions, meeting, family and class reunions and more. Visit the city of Spearfish website for rental information

Contact information

To Contact the Spearfish City Campground call them at 605-642-1340.  The non-hookup or tent sites can not be reserved, they are first-come first-served, however reservations are allowed for these sites during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.  Visit the campground website for more information and a campground map.


From this campground you are just minutes from many recreation options.  Spearfish Canyon offers waterfalls, hiking and scenic drives.  Lookout Mountain Park has miles of trails for hiking or biking.  And, Crow Peak is a great hike that provides great views of Spearfish.

If you plan on doing a lot of exploring in the area, I recommend picking up a copy of Moon Mount Rushmore & the Black Hills Guide and Black Hills – Northeast, South Dakota Trails Illustrated Map #751.  They will make navigating the area much easier and enjoyable.
