ATV Trails Dalton Lake Trailhead (Sturgis)

Dalton Lake Trailhead area Trail 8089

Dalton Lake Campground and trailhead may be a good base camp.

A beautiful campground, a beautiful picnic area, a beautiful lake and access to numerous atv trails; what more could you ask for. This is a popular location for atv, utv, and cycle riders. The valley echoes with the sounds of riders having a good time.

Dalton Lake is a nice quiet but a small lake. It has picnic areas that has recently been updated. You can trailer in for a days ride or camp at the campground for an extended experience. There are 10 first come, campsites.

Check the maps to determine what direction is best for you. Although it is being restored, the Trail 8089 in this area is technical at least and should not be attempted by novice atv operators. However there are numerous forest service roads North and West of the trailhead. From here you can also access the Nemo area South, and all the related trails that allows.

  1. The Black Hills have great ATV trails and Forest Service roads. I have traveled most of them. Our forest service roads are either road-like or trail-like. On my Favorite Rides pages, I have highlighted the many TRAIL-LIKE Forest Service Roads and the ATV trails.

    I put this website together to help others enjoy their ATV visit to South Dakota. When I ATV out of my state, I realize how difficult it is to plan a three day ride without good information. I hope my website will be good information for you.
