Spearfish Canyon Lodge
Spearfish Canyon has so much to offer. There are trails, hikes, fishing, rental equipment for biking, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and UTVs. Check out Devils Bathtub trail, prepare to get your shoes wet, but the views are amazing.
My personal favorite place in the Black Hills. Spearfish Canyon is an 18 mile drive/hike through the outer rim of the Black Hills, culminating in a beautiful waterfall, Rough Lock Falls. Several iconic locations are found in the drive to the top, including Devil's Bathtub - a short half mile hike on…
“Very consistent food and service. They have a pub side that's a sports bar and a restaurant side that adds a more elegant experience. You can't go wrong at the lodge.”
“Absolutely beautiful, completely free lake with crystal clear water that is fed from Hot Springs, you can see the bottom of the lake for quite a ways out. A popular spot with the locals, most tourists never hear of this wonder of the Black Hills. ”
“Another fantastic lake location, this beautiful reservoir is covered in beach-fronts with a lot to do. ”
“Black Elk Peak is the highest point on Earth between the Swiss Alps and the Rocky Mountains - for you East Coasters, that means this rises higher than the Appalachians! A moderate hike, there is a 3 mile trail which leads from the beaches of Sylvan lake to an old Fire Lookout Tower atop the peak, from which you can see Mt. Rushmore and a stunning view of the rest of the Hills. ”
“Legends is in the basement of the historic Franklin Hotel. It is delicious food but they do not take reservations so call ahead first and find out how long the wait is.”
