Ive been the last 2 out of 3 years. The last time I showed up they grilled me about not camping next to any RVs (their big paying customers). I said ill try not to. I always ride to Sturgis and camp in a tent. Didn't feel a lot of love when I checked in, felt like a second class... More

Thanks for commenting. We're glad to hear you'll be back and that you think we're a quality operation, but we are sorry to hear that you didn't "feel the love" when you checked in. When the crew ramps up from about 15 to 500 temporary employees in the few short days leading up to the rally their training is meant... More

We have stayed at the Chip 4 out of the 5 past years. The Chip is one great party! If you are looking for 5 star accommodations or even 3 star you probably should not even be at Sturgis period. Come during the off season to enjoy the great riding in the Black Hills if that is what you are... More

Hey thanks for the great review! Glad you had a good timeand that the facilities have been good for you as well. Regarding children. The Chip agrees with you and prefer that visitors leave their children at home. As stated on the website, the Buffalo Chip has always discouraged people from bringing children. It is an adult oriented festival. However,... More

You really hit the nail on the head with this review, so thank you. The Chip is family run and been that way since 1981. It means a lot that you took the time to recognize the value and the hard work everyone puts in to make it a great experience for you. It's good to know that the effort... More

Just wanted to thank the folks at the Chip for the coolest thing we did this summer. I have not been since 1978 and its pretty safe to say things have changed a bit.

Thanks for coming back after all these years! We agree It's amazing how safe the rally and campground is. We've been righting a misperception for over 30 years and think people are starting to get it. Every year is like a giant gathering of friends, it doesn't matter matter who you are or where you're from. Thank you very much... More

I stayed 10 nights at the Legendary Buffalo Chip Campground while at the Stugis Bike Rally. Sooooo much fun! Everything was great....well...maybe the restrooms could have been a little (okay..a lot) cleaner. Other than that it was definitely a stay I will never forget. Thanks Woody and staff!

2013 Sturgis motorcycle rally I found the ultimate rock 'n roll biker experience.... Buffalo Chip delivers the best. Top flight rock bands kicking [--] on the Chip's main stage, playing on the cleanest and loudest outdoor sound system I've ever heard....every song sounded louder than life. The campground is complete with all the amenities, motorcycle vendors, stocked bars, hot ladies... More

We stayed 6 days at the Chip during the 2013 rally. We trailered in and the line was horrendous on Saturday afternoon. They do search you, no outside alcohol, they will take it from you. Once inside, we were led to our campsite by a young guy on a scooter, very friendly and helpful. Neighbors greeted us as we settled... More

First off, thanks for taking the time to post. We had a tremendous year and apologize for any wait in unexpected lines. For 2014 we've decided to add on to the box office building to open up more access points and improve the flows.. As far as buying passes in advance, if you have an RV it's a good idea... More

First off, I rated it poor because a couple of the concerts were so good. I've been going to the chip for over 20 years now and have watched it steadily decline (as a biker campground) for the past 10 years. It used to be a real biker hangout with plenty of bikes, naked girls and partying. Now it's just... More

Thanks for putting your opinion down. The Chip exists for one reason - to host bikers for about one week each year. There's no business in the world like it, and no family business that is more dedicated to working all year long making improvements to enhance its guests' next rally experience so there will always be bikers, a campground...
