Iron Creek Lake is located in an untouched area of the pristine Black Hills west of scenic Spearfish Canyon. A trip to the lake is just a 20-minute drive from Spearfish on a well-maintained gravel road. The ale was created through a WPA project to create jobs in the mid 1930s and to provide a recreation site in Lawrence County. The trail circling is just about one mile in length, making the lake small enough to prohibit wakes and high-speed watercraft. The atmosphere is quiet and oriented towards families.
Please note, dogs are allowed at Iron Creek Lake, however, they must be leashed at all times, and are not permitted on the swimming beach.
