Boxelder Creek Road to Close Temporarily

Release Date: Nov 3, 2017  

Contact(s): Scott Jacobson, (605) 440-1409

Spearfish, SD – Boxelder Creek Road (FSR 140) will be closed starting November 7 for approximately 30 days.  The closure will be just beyond the Centennial Trail Trailhead, approximately 1 mile from the junction with Nemo Road. 

The purpose of the closure is to replace two large culverts on Boxelder Creek.

Facilities that will be inaccessible via motor vehicle include the open sites at Box Elder Forks Campground, the Box Elder Creek Walk-in Fishery, and the Boxelder Forks Recreation Residents Tract since none of them will be accessible with a vehicle. Cabins are accessible by foot, however, but will have to ford Boxelder Creek to do so.
