Wild Bill's Campground: Camping 6 Miles South

Wild Bills Campground offers rustic cabins as well as campsites. It is located 6 miles south of Deadwood at an altitude of 5,500 feet. Two very small creeks run through the campground and pine trees cover the hills that rise above Wild Bills. Campfires are usually permitted, and firewood is for sale at the camp office. The campground is annually rated by AAA, Good Sam and Woodall's, therefore may be found in their camp books. The campground offers full hook up RV sites, electric only, and tent sites. Shower and laundry facilities are available.

If you enjoy hiking, there is a trail that will lead you up up up into the hills that the campground is nestled against. Notice the road on the mid left side of photo 2. This will give you an idea of how far you will hike. I was not quite at the top when I snapped the picture. Once you arrive at the top you will find more rolling and level ground to hike along. The day I hiked up the hill I spotted 3 mule deer, and one elk, who stood on the trail ahead of me for some time as we eyed each other. Finally he stepped into the forest and disappeared. This campground also has a tiny swimming pool, a small tavern, and a small grill, where you can get breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Some of the favorite items are beef or buffalo burgers, however other items are available. I cannot rate this grill as we did not eat a meal here. There is also a very small convenience store. The campground advertises that both creeks that run through the campground contain trout and gold. The claim is that if you are patient and lucky you may find gold dust or nuggets if you pan for it. Gold pans are available for guest use, but you must pay a refundable $10.00 deposit.
