ABOUT US

CAMP ZERO is the launch site for raising hell and rallying like the old days—a place where you can party like it’s 1981 with other cheapskates who love rad bikes, dirtbag friends and wild parties during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

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. (GRUMPY OLD BIKERS WHO ARE AFRAID OF FUN NEED NOT APPLY.)

BUILD YOUR OWN PARTY

With friends, an on-site bar and free showers, you’ll have everything you need to party, rinse and repeat, with none of that fancy red carpet stuff you gotta pay more for somewhere else.

No fun allowed during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally at CAMP ZERO

If you want music in camp, bring your own instruments cause nobody’s getting paid to play.

Wanna watch a race? Better pair up some friends.

Feel like a beer in the 75-year old barn? OK.

If you wanna catch free concerts, bike shows and contests, or swill on an endless supply of dirt-cheap drinks, you can always head up right the street to the CrossRoads at the Buffalo Chip.

There’re also a few special one-day events happening at CrossRoads that won’t suck in the slightest that you’ll wanna be a part of. More on that in the Free Events Section below.

CAMP LIKE A CHAMP

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 with room for you and up to five of your friends, or more if you don’t care how many pile up on your floor.
