Spearfish Canyon Lodge

The towering limestone cliffs of Spearfish Canyon beckon with endless opportunities for outdoor adventures, relaxation and the most breathtaking views you’ll find. Located right on the Spearfish Canyon Scenic Byway, and with Spearfish Canyon Nature Area right out your backdoor, we welcome you to be our guest at Spearfish Canyon Lodge.

"But how is it that I've heard so little of this miracle and we, toward the Atlantic, have heard so much of the Grand Canyon when this is even more miraculous. […] My hat is off to South Dakota treasures."
During his time in Spearfish Canyon in 1935

Rich History & Breathtaking Views

America's greatest architect, Frank Lloyd Wright, wasn't the first to be awe-inspired by what we now call the Spearfish Canyon Scenic Byway. These gorgeous views were once only available to travelers by horseback or railroad. Today, you can cruise through the gentle curves of the 22-mile drive from Spearfish to the intersection of U.S. Highways 14A and 85 and be treated to this unforgettable experience.

Spearfish Canyon Nature Area

After you pass Bridal Veil Falls, the trailhead to Devils Bath Tub and many other access points to easy and moderate hikes, you will enter Spearfish Canyon Nature Area right in the heart of the canyon. There Roughlock Falls, Little Spearfish Falls, the ’76 Trail, and many more scenic attractions and activities wait for you to be discovered.
