The Spearfish City Campground is a beautiful shaded campground nestled along Spearfish Creek, one of the best trout fishing streams in the Black Hills.

The Campground is located adjacent to the D.C. Booth Historic Fish Hatchery and Spearfish City Park. Within walking distance of the Campground is downtown Spearfish, public laundry facilities, grocery stores, hardware stores, and the Matthews Opera House.

The Campground has restrooms, free showers and also contains amenities such as pop and ice machines, firewood, picnic tables, fire rings, and a sewer dump station.

There are 61 sites that may be reserved; 56 full-hookup sites and five premium sites. The full-hookup sites include electricity (30 & 50 amp), water, sewer, and cable TV. The premium sites offer the same amenities as the regular full-hookup but they are wider, longer, along the creek and a little more private.

There are also approximately 150 non-hookup sites. These are on a first-come first-served basis. You are welcome to call and check on availability to see how full we may be, but we do not take actual reservations. 

The Campground is open year round with full amenities available from Monday of the first or second full week of May through October 1st, all dependent on the weather and staffing availability. Off season camping is available for a minimal fee, with self registration envelopes available at the Campground Office. The dump station is available during the off season, but there is no rinse water.

The City Campground is an Enterprise Fund, meaning it is not supported by tax dollars, but rather pays for its operation through the revenue generated by its paying patrons. The City Campground does pay annually to the City's General Fund a "Payment In Lieu of Taxes" amount which helps the City to minimize the mill levy thus reducing the burden on the taxpayers to fund municipal government.
