Roubaix Lake

Black Hills National Forest

Roubaix Campground is tucked into a grove of Ponderosa pines along its namesake lake. With a popular swim beach and opportunities for non motorized boating and paddling, campsites are dispersed among four loops, and many offer lake views. At an elevation of 5,500 feet, this camp remains comfortable on hot summer days, and sites are spaced far enough apart to offer ample privacy. This popular camp makes a great base for exploring all the activities and attractions at the lake and in the surrounding area.

Roubaix Lake camp offers a variety of sites. Each one contains a gravel spur, picnic table and fire ring.

Drinking water and accessible vault toilets are provided.
