Lincoln County Officials Decline Moratorium Request on Plans to Convert Golf Course into Campground

Share this article

South Dakota’s Lincoln County officials are taking a hands-off approach to the question of whether some parts of Spring Creek Golf Course should be converted into a campground, a report said.

County commissioners claimed they do not have the power to influence the discussion either way since the land is considered state land.

On Tuesday, the leadership declined the resolution calling for a moratorium on South Dakota Game, Fish, and Parks’ plans to transform the golf course into a campground.

The resolution expresses frustrations of Spring Creek residents who don’t wish to see “a combination of RVs, campers, tents, cabins, or picnic tables” in their neighborhood, as per Spring Creek Committee’s report. The committee represents 79 homes and over 150 residents around the golf course.

The five-member Lincoln County panel was urged to “abandon plans” for campground development of the Spring Creek Country Club in Canton including activities that extend beyond daytime and exclude camping and campgrounds. The resolution also called holding off land transfer until GFP and the Spring Creek Community reached an approved plan.

The vote was 3-1, with 3 votes for and three against.
