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 are:

  • Downtown Spearfish
  • Grocery stores
  • Hardware stores
  • The Matthews Opera House
  • Public laundry facilities

Reaching the Campground

Do not use global positioning system (GPS) for directions due to season road closures and no turn around. 

From Interstate 90, take exit 12, and travel west eight blocks to the Canyon Street stoplight (second light). Turn left and go nine blocks on Canyon Street, past the Spearfish City Park, and across the bridge.


The Campground has restrooms, free showers and also contains amenities such as:

  • Fire rings
  • Firewood
  • Picnic tables
  • Pop and ice machines
  • A sewer dump station

Types of Campsites

There are 61 sites that may be reserved - 56 full-hookup sites and five premium sites - as well as non-hookup sites.

  • The full-hookup sites include electricity (30 and 50 amp), water, sewer, and cable television.
  • 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 approximately 150 non-hookup sites. Reservations for these are recommended.
