CAMP ZERO – A True Highlife Moto Celebration
Party, Sleep, Repeat at the Champagne of Moto Campouts
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.
If you’re down with a little dirt and debauchery, you’re invited.
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.
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 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.
Get a CAMP ZERO pass.
Do It Wrong. Keep Sturgis Weird.
Stay for a stint. Or stay for 9.
