    The Ditch Creek Campground is a quiet campground adjacent to Ditch Creek. It is situated in an open area with some spruce along the creek. The campground is located approximately 5 miles south of Deerfield Reservoir. In the off-season, several sites remain open. Stay limit at all campgrounds is 14 days. In conjunction with Forest Recreation Management, Inc. (campground concessionaire) and the Black Hills National Forest, the camping sites were reconstructed in June 2022. The purpose of this effort was to accommodate modern-sized RVs, provide accessibility, reduce resource damage, improve fire safety, and reduce maintenance costs. A portion of the camping fees collected were used to fund this project. (Photo by Steve Keegan/USDA FS)
