Spearfish Canyon, SD Pictures
A Tourist Hotspot

We drove to the Black Hills in September 2012 to celebrate our anniversary. We stayed in Keystone SD, and then Custer Mountain Campground for four days. Then we thought we should drive north to check out Spearfish Canyon, since we heard so much about it, and we're glad we did.

We arrived just as the Fall colors were peaking. We had no idea there was such a beautiful location in South Dakota, plus there are several awesome waterfalls. It must be one of South Dakota's best kept secrets!

Some Pictures of Spearfish Canyon

Honestly, when we arrived in the canyon, I just couldn't stop taking pictures. I really have too many, but here are a few of the most interesting.

City of Spearfish SD

Here's some pictures I took of the town of Spearfish. Not many, because we spent most of our time in the canyon exploring.

Hotels and Motels in Spearfish, SD

When we went to Spearfish, we stayed at a Rodeway Inn and Suites, but there was a lodge and a restaurant in the center of the Spearfish Canyon Drive.
