It's easy to "Stay & Play" right here at Rec Springs Resort!
One of the best ways to "play" is to explore via an ATV, UTV or snowmobile - You can rent one right here or bring your own.
ATV’ing / off-roading is one of the most adventurous ways to explore the Black Hills. Rent one of our new Razors or ATVs. If you got your own, ride from our place. Rec Springs is located in the center of the Northern Black Hills trail system. When riding your own, be sure to get a Forest Service Trail Permit. You can pick one up at a number of locations, including the Black Hills & Badlands Visitor Information Center at Exit 61 off I-90 - Stop in on the way here if you're traveling from the East. If you're coming in from another direction you can pick one up at any of the other locations below:
Pactola Visitor Center (open Memorial Day to Labor Day)
Northern Hills Ranger District – Spearfish, SD
Mystic Ranger District – Rapid City, SD
South Dakota is one of the few states that allow ATV and UTV use on the roads and highways (except interstate). If your own ATV/UTV is not licensed and road legal in your own state, we recommend getting a temporary license. These can be purchased at the Lawrence County Treasurers office in Deadwood.
Snowmobiling in the Black Hills is an experience you’ll never forget. It is the outdoor sport that started Rec Springs! We are located right on trail 5 in some of the best snow the Black Hills gets, follow the link below for the map of the snowmobile trails. We have new Arctic Cat rentals if you don’t have your own, and we have plenty of trailer parking if you do have your own. We sell the $40 trail permits right onsite if you need them.
