Francis Case Lake
Snake Creek Scenic Campground

If you travel west on Highway 18, you are in for a scenic surprise when you come to Francis Case Lake.

Get your camera ready, and pull into the scenic overlook and start snapping away. You just won't believe how beautiful it is. There is an information board there called Shannon Shows Up.

Continuing down the road you'll find a wonderful campground.The campground is by a bridge, and the campground is called, "Snake Creek Campground."

Snake Creek Campground

We pulled into the campground to take a peek and get a brochure. See their brochure front and brochure back. It is just beautiful, and so clean. The park ranger that came out to the car, said electrical sites are $14.00 a night, and nonelectrical tent sites are $10.00. The cabins are only $32.00 a night cabins. Campground fees sign

Snake Creek Beach View

They have a nice beach there too, but no lifeguards. I think we will stay at Snake Creek Campground on the way back from the Black Hills.
Update: Read about our recent weekday getaway!
