Welcome to Derby Elk Resort, nestled in the outskirts of the Black Hills National Forest. The Derby Elk Resort is opened March through November and offers the peace and tranquility you want during your vacation retreat. If you enjoy leisure activities during the warmer seasons such as hiking, biking, hunting big or small game, this is the place to be. We are 90% surrounded by the Black Hills National Forest, so bring out your ATV and enjoy the fresh mountain air and scenery. Experience the wildlife and what nature has to offer while riding your own horse. A corral and large fenced area is available to panel your horse(s). During the winter months, sleds and snowshoes can provide hours of fun! After a full day of playing or just plain relaxing, you can watch the sun rise and set over the hills,or enjoy star gazing while soaking in the private hot tub on your deck.
