Follow the instructions from traffic attendants to ensure you enter and settle in as quickly and efficiently as possible.                                                         

In the event there is a line to pick up your passes, grab a round of beers while you’re at it. You’re on vacation.


Pulling a trailer with toys in it behind you? You will need to PURCHASE and pick up A TRAILER PASS if you didn’t reserve one with your RV and camping reservations.

INSIDER TIP:  There is a dump station on Main Street before entering the West Gate. You can dump your tanks for free, before you enter the grounds and set up camp. Once parked, you’ll want to schedule a pump with the Pump Service Vendor for a fee. If you missed your chance out front, tell the parking attendant, and they will help you out.

For the safety of all, and in compliance with state, Federal and local laws, the following items are prohibited from entry into the venue:

  • Firearms  
  • Fireworks or other explosives
  • Alcoholic beverages
  • Pets
  • Drones
  • Full list of here

All vehicles entering the campground will be subject to search. You may check firearms and alcoholic beverages at the entrance and pick them up on your departure. Once you are through the main gate, parking attendants will escort you to your camping area/site. 

Tent Camping

Vehicle Camping Pass: 
All four-wheeled vehicles entering the campground must have a camping pass clearly displayed on their dash. These are obtained at the ticket office upon check-in.

Ride-in/Walk-in Camping:
The Buffalo Chip offers designated areas for tents that are ride-in/walk-in only. Check out the campground map in the center of this booklet to locate these spots and reap the rewards of traveling light to Sturgis..

Portalet Rental for Tents:
If you reserved a private portalet, we have a designated spot awaiting you. Check in at the West Box Office and then proceed to the Cabin Management Office just inside the West Gate on the right. You will be escorted to your site.

Free Parking:
There are free parking areas located east of 132nd Ave near the East Entrance. See the campground map in the center of this booklet.

Arriving for Concerts and Races

If you’re coming out to catch an exciting day of world-class performances and racing but don’t intend to camp, proceed east to 132nd Ave and follow traffic flaggers’ directions to free parking. Be sure to arrive in the afternoon in time to catch all of the shows.

See the campground map.

Secured Parking
Located at the East Gate. Park your bike in our secured parking area for $10.

Single Entry Passes

PLEASE NOTE: If you intend to come and go, you need to stop at the East Box Office and exchange your paper pass for a wristband BEFORE your initial entry.

INSIDER TIP:  The entertainment on the main stage finishes up about midnight, but the fun continues until 1:45 a.m. on the Showcase Stages. Hang around and catch a fresh new band or dance to a killer DJ instead of immediately getting into traffic. Better yet, just stay the night and don’t worry about driving.


This is the place to go for free entertainment and the cheapest drinks around: $2 BEERS & $3 WELLS! Discover the magnificent Field of Flags, the world’s largest V-twin engine sculpture, and the AVTT Veterans Wall Memorial. There are daily bike shows, acres of paved vendor shopping, a packed schedule of free entertainment, live music and crazy contests. Park for free and experience all that CrossRoads has to offer!
Find out more info on the CrossRoads here.


Six days of racing and some of the hottest bike shows in Sturgis combine with the biggest names in music for the Moto Stampede. Nowhere else in the world can you find nitrous-fueled dragsters at 100+ MPH and flat track racing in the middle of a concert amphitheater. There’s too much to even list here. Go to the foldout on PAGE 16 for the full line-up of events.


RV Camping 

A parking attendant WILL ESCORT YOU to your assigned space. Everything must be set up within the boundaries of your site.

INSIDER TIP:    Dump your RV before you settle into your campsite. If you didn’t get a chance to dump it before you entered the West Gate, let your parking attendant know so they can help you prior to arriving at your site. Once your RV is parked it will be extremely inconvenient to move it until departure.

EZ Camp

Check in at the West Box Office to receive your campground passes and a campground attendant will escort you to your camp area.


Check in at the West Box Office for your cabin, then pick up your keys at the cabin management office (just inside the West Gate to the right). You will be escorted to your cabin.

Tent Camping 

Certain areas are available for ride-in/walk-in tent camping only. While you can drive into other areas of the campground with your car to camp, you may only ride your motorcycle or walk into the ride-in only camping areas. If you have a car and want to camp in the tent-only camping areas, set up your campsite and then park your car in the free parking areas.

General Store   

Located inside the amphitheater, the General Store is open 24 hours and offers a variety of products for campers. From condoms to toothpaste, this where you go when you realize you’ve forgotten something small at home.

The Camp Store

Sometimes you don’t always bring all the supplies you need to stay dry and comfortable while camping. Head over to the Camp Store to pick up tarps, stakes, fuels or anything else that will make your camping experience easier.

Carry-Out Beer 

While it is against the law to bring alcohol through the gates, we’ll make sure you don’t go thirsty once you’re inside. Visit either of the two Beer and Ice shacks to pick up everything you need to enjoy some quality time at your campsite.

Laundry Facilities 

The Chip offers two options for dealing with your dirty laundry:

Coin Operated - Take advantage of our coin operated self-serve laundry rooms if you want to throw in a few loads and fold them yourself.

Drop Off & Pick Up Service - If you want someone else to take care of your laundry for you, drop your laundry off at the Laundry Vendor, and they will bring your unmentionables back to you cleaned, pressed and ready to shed at a moment’s notice.

RV Pump and Dump  

If you are planning to stay with us for a few days, then chances are at some point you’ll need to dump your RV tanks. Visit our on-site sanitation services and they’ll get your poop in a group. Pump out may be purchased in advance as well.

Gas Station  

Renewable Fuels Association offers 93 Octane fill ups at the brand-new Buffalo Chip Stop & Fuel. The pumps are self-service and operate on a credit card. The 93 Octane fuel is enhanced with 10% Ethanol and is approved by every major motorcycle manufacturer.


Traffic Policy

All 4-wheel vehicles MUST ENTER the campground BEFORE 7:30 p.m. and must stay on roadways when traveling. They must remain parked from 7:30 p.m. until dawn. The campground is a busy place, and safety is of the highest priority. Motorized traffic after 7:30 p.m. within the campground is restricted to motorcycles, trikes and small recreational vehicles. Authorized service and emergency vehicles are the sole exceptions. Failure to comply could result in having your vehicle permanently removed from the campground.

Alcohol and Drugs


No adult is allowed to provide alcohol to anyone under 21. Violators will be removed from the campground without refund and are subject to arrest. Fake IDs will be seized and violators will be reported for prosecution.                                         

PLEASE NOTE: The Buffalo Chip® will pay a $20 reward to anyone who reports and/or helps security capture a violating minor or someone supplying alcohol to a minor.

South Dakota state law prohibits the consumption of alcohol on any licensed premises other than upon the licensed premises where the alcohol was purchased. In other words, it’s illegal to enter the Chip with alcohol or drink alcohol at the Chip if it was not purchased here. 

Drugs are illegal and are not allowed on the Buffalo Chip premises, unless you have a valid prescription.

PLEASE NOTE: MARIJUANA prescriptions are not valid in South Dakota and possession of any amount of marijuana is illegal. Violators must be reported to law enforcement.

Fire and Fireworks

Pursuant to Meade County Ordinance #27, it is illegal for any person to ignite any fireworks or to have an open fire. To be able to grill for cooking, be sure your equipment falls into one of these two categories:

1) Liquid-fueled grill, meaning a metal or stone device designed to cook food using liquefied or gaseous combustible fuel; or

2) A charcoal grill, meaning a metal or stone device within a firebox not resting on the ground with a metal grate designed to cook food using charcoal briquettes, char wood, or similar fuel

Glass Bottles

Glass bottles are not allowed or sold inside the campground


The Chip is a lot of fun, but the campground really isn’t a place for children. We ask that you not bring under-aged children when you visit. A legal waiver signed by the parent is required for any child camping at the Chip, and they must be accompanied by an adult at all times.


For the safety of pets and in consideration of other campers, you’ll need to make arrangements for your pets to stay home or board them locally while you’re at the Chip. We can’t make exceptions, even if your pet knows how to fetch you a beer, but we would be happy to recommend a few good kennels.


The weather can change quickly and with little notice. Please be prepared if you are camping and bring tarps, plastic sheeting or whatever you need to remain comfortable during a summer rainstorm. Inclement weather may cause a temporary delay or even a cancellation of some or all entertainment.

No refunds will be issued due to delays, non-performance or cancellations due to weather or any other reason.

Emergency Procedures

Report any problems to security personnel immediately. They will do their best to resolve campground issues as soon as possible. Problems will be addressed in the order in which they are reported.

Armed Forces Memorials

Freedom Field
What started as a way to honor the fallen heroes of the Iraq War has evolved into a touching tribute to all our brave men and women in uniform. A quiet walk through this field helps you remember what really matters and is an experience you won’t want to miss.

Vietnam Memorial Wall
The American Veterans Traveling Tribute (AVTT) Veterans Memorial Wall is set up each year during the rally as a veteran’s tribute to honor those that have fallen in the line of duty. The wall sits amidst the Buffalo Chips Field of Flags and Battlefield Cross and is engraved with the names of those that have fallen. This wall travels the country so people have an opportunity to view and pay their respects.


Vehicles in the Amphitheater

Pedestrians, motorcycles, trikes and vehicles designed to assist those with physical limitations will be allowed limited access inside the amphitheater. Exceptions are made for delivery and emergency vehicles only. The amphitheater may be restricted to pedestrian access at any time.

NOTE: On RACE DAYS, the amphitheater will be pedestrian FOOT TRAFFIC ONLY.

Respectful Concert Attendance

  1. There will be times when bikes aren’t allowed in the amphitheater.
  2. There will be times when a limited number of bikes are allowed in the amphitheater.
  3. It is a Buffalo Chip tradition for members of the audience to rev their engines as part of the applause. This privilege may change at any time. Out of respect for your fellow concert goers, please keep off your throttle until the song or concert has concluded. Come on.

    Revving engines during the performance of a song is discourteous to the rest of the audience who is there to see and hear the performance, not to mention the performers who are there to entertain the crowd. Anyone revving an engine during performance of a song must either surrender their keys until after the performance or leave the amphitheater.   

VIP Upgrade

Get as close to the performance as possible with our VIP packages. Grab a seat in our on-stage VIP seating or choose pit access and be right in front of the stage. All VIP passes come with five complimentary beverages and the possibility of a meet and greet with that night’s artists. Find more info at


The party and good times continue well after the main stage shuts down. Check the Daily Schedule at on your phone and find a place to live your night to the fullest.


We’ve got you covered for all types of after-hours fun. You can dance to the DJ at Club Chip, catch live music at Kinison and Bikini Beach, or just find a bar and hang out till last call. Or you can choose your own adventure. Walk out into the campground and start making friends. The Chip is full of all kinds of parties that occasionally take you till sunrise.

Sound Levels

The Buffalo Chip motorcycle and music festival is The Best Party Anywhere®. Amplified music ends by 1:45 a.m. every night. For the quietest camping, we recommend camping away from the stages and around the perimeter of the campground.

Drinking and Driving

This should go without saying, but it is illegal to operate a motor vehicle or even ride a horse while intoxicated. It is just as illegal to do it in the campground as it is on the highway. If you are found to be a danger to yourself or others, security will remove keys from any vehicle thought to be operating in a dangerous or reckless manner. No argument, please. The keys can be retrieved the following day.

Last Call

The Sturgis Buffalo Chip is legally licensed to sell alcohol in the State of South Dakota. It is important that license be preserved in order to continue hosting The Best Party Anywhere!

Alcoholic beverages will not be sold after 1:45 a.m.

If you haven’t ever spent time in South Dakota during the summer months, you may not expect the drastic and rapid changes in weather patterns you can experience here.

South Dakota Weather
Woody has always warned people that the wind is going to blow 100 MPH for 2 minutes, and it is likely to rain 2 inches, possibly within the same 2 minutes. You need to be ready for those two minutes or it will screw up the rest of your vacation.

These tips will help you be better prepared for Mother Nature.

1. Pack a full set of rain gear. When you’re out riding, keep an eye on the radar and look out for possible cover in the event of hail or heavy rains.

2. Prepare your camp for the possibility of rain and high winds before leaving it for the day. Secure items that could easily blow away, and put personal items under cover.

3. If you are tent camping, bring a tarp and extra stakes to put over your tent to keep valuables dry. Consider collapsing it if high winds are projected.

4. Pay attention to the sky. Ugly looking clouds could mean large hail that could be extremely dangerous.


Make the Most of Your Vacation at The Buffalo Chip

1. The earlier you book, the cheaper it is. Plain and simple. Many guests book for the following year as soon as the rally is over. Special prices end incrementally throughout the year as bands are confirmed, so don’t hesitate when you decide you’re going to make the trip.      

2. Meal Plans-The Stage West Cafe offers meal plans tailored to your needs. You can save a lot of cash by buying a plan before you come. You can purchase these packages in advance at Reservations. We recommend you leave room for one day to check out some of our delicious food vendors though.             

3. Drink specials – There are many of them. Search them out at Woody’s Watering Hole, CrossRoads, The Rat’s Hole, The Micro Brew, Bikini Beach and don’t forget the Jag Bomb special is everywhere. There’s no excuse for not throwing back a cool one at unheard of prices.

4. The General Store in the amphitheater can provide you with pretty much anything you need. So skip the hassle and the wasted hours of going into town and just head down to the General Store.

5. Free pancake breakfast – Get them fresh off the griddle every morning at the Sons of Light tent at The CrossRoads.
