Plus, you'll be surrounded by the natural splendor and quiet ambiance of an open meadow, filled with wildlife! Newton Fork Ranch is an idyllic place for Black Hills family vacations.


It's not difficult to spot wildlife at Newton Fork Ranch. The cabins circle an open meadow, where you're likely to see deer, wild turkeys and perhaps elk. Each cabin was built to blend into its undisturbed natural surroundings, almost as if it were a part of the trees, rocks and hidden game trails in this serene South Dakota area. The Black Hills beckon!


You think that just because you're landlocked, you can't find any good fishing? There are a few fishing options when you stay at Newton Fork Ranch. The Newton Fork Creek is the perfect creek for fishing those delicious pan-size rainbow trout! If you prefer, Sheridan Lake offers year-round fishing, including ice fishing. Here, enjoy catching trout, yellow perch and northern pike!


It's time you get out there and enjoy that romantic getaway you're always talking about. Each cabin at Newton Fork Ranch has a comfortable queen bed, stunning meadow views and secluded comfort just for you and your special someone. Each log cabin is separated enough from one another to give you the feeling that it's your own special private South Dakota hideaway in the woods.


In the evening, you'll find out where the Black Hills got its name; the sky is so dark and clear that the stars seem to rain down on the roof of your Newton Fork Ranch cabin. During the day, these mountains transform into a world of hiking, biking, fishing and sightseeing at famous Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse and beyond. The rolling rocky, forested hills are stunning and beautiful!


Newton Fork Ranch was a tin mine in the 1800's, and the adjacent hiking trail was a railroad line. It's the best place to enjoy the area from the old gold mill next door, where you can still pan, to historic Hill City, which has captured the imaginations of nationally-recognized artists and writers. Enjoy a visit to nearby Mt. Rushmore as well and learn about it's creation!
