People who miss driving the Camp 5 area during their Black Hills vacation, miss a diverse drive filled with remnants’ of old gold mines and beautiful geological scenery.

The Galena Waterfall is a nice little surprise as you pass over Bear Butte Creek.

There is history to be seen at the Galena Cemetery on Vinegar Hill just outside of Galena.

A visit to Strawberry Hill Lake, West Strawberry Creek or even Reausaw Lake is worth your riding time.

If the conditions are right, shortly after leaving the trailhead, you get your tires wet when you cross Boulder Creek water crossings.

Some of the mystery of the area includes the Camp 5 cave and the Camp 5 cabin.

The China Wall is an example of the mining history to be seen on the Camp 5 drive.

Ghost towns include the Fort Meade Ghost Town, Rochmond Ghost Town, Reausaw Ghost Town and the Galena Ghost Town.

If the gate is open, spend some time driving in the Marcotte Game Production area.

Bear Butte State Park is worth a visit if your time allows.
