Campground Services are Second to None at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip®

Deluxe Rally Accommodations Provide You With Everything You Need



Our WIFI provider will not be continuing service in 2017. We continue to try and find a vendor who wishes to make the service available again. Sorry for the inconvienence.

RV Dump/Fill Services

The other dump stations can be found near the North Shower House and at the South Forty Camping Area on the East side of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip campground.

Trash Service

The sanitation crew makes daily rounds throughout the Rally to make sure the campground is clean and litter free. Thank you for helping them to preserve the natural beauty of the Black Hills.

Free Pancake Breakfast

Every morning during the Rally, the Sons of Light Ministry provides our campers with a free pancake breakfast. They purchase their supplies through donations, volunteer their time and make considerable efforts, so we ask that you to continue to be considerate to them, thankful for their willingness to serve and generous toward their ministry.
