"Spearfish, South Dakota" Spearfish by xoxoxenophile

Spearfish Travel Guide: 7 reviews and 11 photos

Spearfish is really a nice town in the Black Hills. It's smaller than Rapid City and less filled with tourists than Sturgis, Lead, or Deadwood, so if you want to be out of the way of the tourist crowd it can be a good place to stay in a hotel. I have a few friends who go to Black Hills State University out there, and there is a lot of hiking and really beautiful views in the area--they're always posting pictures. It's also fairly close to Devils Tower, so if you plan on going there it might be a good option for you.
