Horse Creek Resort at Sheridan Lake is situated on 19 acres of forested hillsides and the grassy meadows of Horse Creek watershed.

Horse Creek Resort combines the marina facilities at Sheridan Lake with Horse Creek Inn and Campground to provide you with an unequalled vacation experience. Sheridan Lake Marina is located within the Black Hills National Forest and is operated by Horse Creek Resort under a special use permit from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service.
Stop in and let us show you how good a Black Hills vacation can be! Reservations are recommended for weekends.
Located on Highway 385 just north of Sheridan Lake, Horse Creek resort is 7 miles northeast of Hill City and 15 miles from Keystone / Mt. Rushmore. From the junction of Highways 16 and 385, take Highway 385 north towards Deadwood. Watch for the resident big horn sheep herd as you drive north to Sheridan Lake. Follow the signs for the Sheridan Lake North recreation area and marina, or continue ¼ mile north past Sheridan Lake Road to Horse Creek Resort.
Horse Creek Inn is the place where the locals go for the best prime rib and steaks in the Black Hills! After a long day of exploring the central hills, stop in and relax at our full-service bar and unwind with one of our exceptional appetizers. We offer fine dining in our newly remodeled main dining room with its beautiful tongue & groove paneling and rustic old west atmosphere. Or if you’re in a more casual mood, grab a quick burger basket at the bar. Either way, you’ll soon discover why Horse Creek Inn has been an area favorite for more than 40 years.
We serve our signature prime rib special 4 nights a week, Thursday through Sunday. Our soups are all made from scratch and include the best beer cheese soup you’ll find this side of Wisconsin! We serve only USDA Choice beef and all of our steaks are hand-cut. Our seafood entrees are hard to beat, and the broasted chicken is out of this world. From our homemade salad dressings to our chef’s weekly signature dessert special, you’ll not find a better dining experience in the Black Hills. All major credit cards accepted.

Horse Creek Resort cabins are nestled against the tree line along the Horse Creek watershed a mere ½ mile from the Sheridan Lake shoreline. Quiet and secluded from the highway, our cabins are the perfect place to relax and unwind after a day of exploring the Black Hills. Several Black Hills National Forest trails pass through or nearby the property, and it is a pleasant stroll along the trails and roads that follow Horse Creek to its outlet at Sheridan Lake.
Most cabins were redecorated in 2014. All cabins have air conditioning, water, electricity and free Wi-Fi internet. There is no TV (except for Cabin 6) or telephone, and cell phone service is limited (throughout the Black Hills). All cabins have bathrooms and the 3-bedroom cabins have kitchen facilities. Each cabin has an attached deck, a picnic table nearby and a fire ring for you to enjoy a campfire on our cool summer evenings.
We provide all linens, bedding and bath towels. Cabins are equipped with a refrigerator, microwave oven and coffee maker. Cabins with kitchen facilities have basic cooking utensils, pots & pans, and tableware. BBQ grills (charcoal) are available upon request but must be kept off of the decks for fire safety.

Horse Creek RV Park and Campground offers a beautiful mix of shaded and grassy meadow camping sites. From full-hookup 50 amp electric RV sites to tent sites along Horse Creek, we have a site to fit your needs. Best of all, most campsites are tucked away in a beautiful valley, away from the road noise and congestion you’ll find at other parks.
We are a small RV park with just 18 RV pads yet we can accommodate up to 45ft long RVs in selected sites. Nearly unlimited tent camping is available on both sides of Horse Creek, and ample space for self-contained campers is available. Tent sites do not have electricity. Shower and coin-op laundry facilities are provided.
If quiet seclusion and easy access in the central Black Hills is what you seek, you need search no further than Horse Creek Resort RV Park and Campground!
