About Creekside Country Resort

Now Cabins at Creekside 

Cabins at Creekside, formerly Creekside Country Resort is a family owned and operated business which consists of seven cabins. Our cabins accommodate small and large groups or families and we host great lunch and dinner options at the Dairy Twist right here on our property.

Our Outdoor Activities Area has several outdoor activities for you to choose from such as basketball, volleyball, a swing set, slide, play center and firepit.

A beautiful mountain stream winds through our beautiful eight-acre property at the base of a granite cliff surrounded by breathtaking views and a serene setting.

How it Started

Karen Moore (mom) was born and raised in Wall, SD where the famous Wall Drug and the Badlands are. Her parents owned lodging businesses also, so she grew up in the tourist trade and loved it. After finishing High School in 1972 she got a job managing a lodging facility in a nearby town. She liked it and spent most of the next few years working in or managing lodging businesses. She had 3 children, (the best thing she claims she ever did in her life), and in 1987  had an opportunity to buy a small place of her own and  liked that even better. She married a man (Larry) that liked the challenge of fixing, building and tinkering so they made a great team. In 1994 they moved to Hill City in the middle of the Beautiful Black Hills to find a property to buy right in the very place we all visited as children. It was a dream come true, they bought a property and one good thing led to another good thing and in 2003  bought this property that we love and want to share with you. Mom has lived in Hill City for nearly 3 decades now and wouldn’t change anything including our beautiful family. She has 9 wonderful grandchildren and all of them live within 15 minutes. The 3 of us kids and our spouses are now all in the lodging business as well.  We could not be more proud!

In December of 2020 Grandpa (mom’s husband Larry), passed away and leaves us all saddened and full of grief, but we are all strong and will find our way forward with all of the cherished, wonderful memories of him. Rest in Peace Grandpa Larry. 

How It’s Going

Now we are starting a new chapter. Mom is retiring! Congratulations!! The 3 of us kids will be running Creekside as additions to our own businesses. We are second generation here but will be incorporating a 4th generation in lodging with some of the “grandkids” getting involved. We are so blessed with this opportunity to continue building mom’s legacy. 

“Cabins at Creekside” will continue to have the family feel and we welcome you as she always did!!
