Forget everything you think you know about the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally and start from ZERO. CAMP ZERO is the launch site for raising hell and rallying like the old days—a place where you can party like 1981 animals who love rad bikes and wild parties.

Some of the best times during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally are the ones that aren’t planned.

If you’re down with a little dirt and debauchery, you’re invited. 

No fun allowed during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally at CAMP ZERO

Grab a Buffalo Chip wristband and show up ready to rage. With friends, an on-site bar, a handful of community Coleman mini bikes (aka Smile Makers), and free showers, you’ll have everything you need to party, rinse and repeat.

Wanna watch a race? Better pair up some friends.

Feel like a beer in the 80-year-old-barn? OK.

If you wanna catch all the concerts and events at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip, no sweat. They’re just a hop, skip and a jump away, and you can get them all free with your campground admission pass.



There’s plenty of space if you want to crash in a tent, van, or camper. If you don’t have room on the back of the bike for a tent, you can sleep in the dirt like an animal OR rent an authentic, no-frills tipi or cavalry tent.

Reinvent your rally at this true high-life moto-celebration by reserving your spot at Sturgis Buffalo Chip's CAMP ZERO. Any Buffalo Chip Pass will get you there.

Mini Bike Show
Hosted by Big Joe Mielke of Snap Fabrications @ Camp Zero
Tuesday, Aug. 9, 2022. 2:00-5:00 p.m.
They say it’s not the size of the bike that matters, but rather how you customize it. Nowhere will that simple truth be more evident than the first-ever Snap Fabrications Camp Zero Mini Bike Show featuring Joe Mielke of Snap Fabrications during Anarchy Day. Whether you’re a master fabricator or a self-deprecator, having Zero Fun and letting your freak flag fly is the name of the game. The show will have two classes– Coleman Powersports mini bikes and all other things mini and two-wheeled. As long as it’s small in stature and big in character, give that puppy a pull-start and ride it on in for a little bit of fun.

Tuesday, Aug. 9, 2022 @ 5:00 p.m.
Stick around after the Sportster Showdown. Show up on a bike. Roll a keg, race slow, twist off the line, catch some airtime, and hold on tight. Sound like absolutely no fun? Then don’t show.

Thrills come cheap at Sturgis Buffalo Chip CAMP ZERO.

Let’s ride, boogie, PARTY, Get Down, and Dirty.
