Description

Added by Isaac Parsons

Camp in an area of Spearfish Canyon that is not overly crowded, and still very scenic and beautiful with limestone rock formations high above.

The campground is located 7.5 miles south of Lead on Highway 85, then turn left on road 196, there will be a sign for Hanna CG, from there it is just over 2 miles to the campground. The campground has 13 total sites, the main area of the CG is closed during the fall winter and spring, but there are a few sights that are walk in sites and open year around. 

The sites are nicely spaced, and most have cover under big spruce trees, and are located along the east fork of Spearfish creek. Since sites are near the creek you get a good amount of white noise to drown out the sound of other campers and snorers. 

This campground is a great spot to have as your base camp to explore Spearfish Canyon which is great rock climbing, fun hiking and great sights including numerous waterfalls Roughlock FallsSpearfish Falls are just a couple. There are so many more places to see and explore in the Black Hills area, some Northern Hills Face
