Added by Isaac Parsons

Camp at Black Fox Campground in the beautiful Black Hills and find waterfalls or beaver dams, and try your hand at fly fishing for brook trout.

Black Fox is 9 miles west of Rochford has nine campsites along the Rhoads Fork Creek where it meets up with the South Fork of Rapid Creek. Campsites are nicely arranged for the most part with a fire pit and picnic table at each site. From the campground there are many things to do, many people enjoy finding ATV trails through the National Forest, or fly fishing on the Rhoads fork or hiking up to the limestone cliffs for spectacular views. There are also many beaver dams on the creeks along with waterfalls. Some waterfalls are only a couple feet high but there is one waterfall that is about 15 feet high, to get there follow one of the creeks upstream from the campground, it is beautiful and a great spot to take a very cold, but refreshing shower. I'll let you do the exploring to find the waterfall...

I teach 5th grade in Custer, South Dakota.;

 I love to go camping whenever possible, 20 out of the last 22 months I have camped at least once a month if not multiple times, even in the bitter cold and rain and snow and poor weather. Hiking, backpacking, anything outdoor
