Tent Camping and Rally Passes at the Buffalo Chip Campground during the Sturgis Rally


Camping is the true experience of attending the Sturgis motorcycle rally. You will enjoy the camping during Sturgis bike week at the Legendary Buffalo Chip campground. Your lady will appreciate the attendants and the new flush toilets in the amphitheaters, and will be really happy that Sturgis camping does not require cooking. The Legendary Buffalo Chip features great breakfasts, lunch and dinners, including pizza at Dominos, prime rib dinners at the Stage West Café, BBQ Ribs and Chicken, Taco Belle, steaks and more. And, between meals, she can shop at the many vendors located at the Chip, including the Hot Leathers store, which has our Buffalo Chip branded merchandise.

The Buffalo Chip campground rules apply equally to every person who's allowed onto the campground premises.

Anyone who has a Buffalo Chip daily pass is entitled to stay and camp at the Buffalo Chip campground until 10:00 a.m. the following day. You are welcome to attend the concerts without camping, as many do. In other words, you don't have to stay. We just make it possible for you to do so, so you won't party too much and then hit the highway (or have the highway hit you).

Tent campers may locate their campsite anywhere on the Buffalo Chip's campground premises, except they may not pitch a tent inside areas designated off-limits to the general public, secured areas, the parking lots, the amphitheater, or within 50 feet of any improved RV sites.
