Had the opportunity to stay this year at Shade Valley and the folks were great. When we drove across country with our 52 ft rig, we pulled in with a flat on our trailer. The folks at shade valley made sure our tire was removed, taken to town and replaced. We didn't lift a finger. The RV park is perfect... More

I have stayed at other campgrounds and Shade Valley is by far the cleanest and best run campground in the Sturgis area. The bathrooms are clean and plenty of hot water, thanks to the cat diesels keeping up the heat. The crowd is a more quiet middle aged crowd so no burnouts at 3 in the morning after the bar... More

Overview: This was my first Sturgis experience, and I'm exceptionally satisfied with my stay at Shade Valley. My traveling partner and Army buddy had stayed at the Buffalo Chip a few years prior, and he said he wished he would have stayed at Shade Valley. The Chip is the noisy, no sleep, partying place to stay - if that's your... More

I have stayed at Shade Valley Camp four different Sturgis Rally Weeks. I usually stay 5 nights or more. I ride in from San Diego, California, once on a return ride from New York State. Every year the place is better than the last. I really like the way they take care of the showers and the hot water for... More

I did a lot of looking at campgrounds online and chose Shade Valley based upon lots of good reviews. I was traveling alone to the 2013 Sturgis Rally and I was interested in a place where I could be comfortable that was reasonably close. The campground is immaculate and all the staff were great. The availability of entertainment and food... More

Based on the reviews I decided to try Shade Valley and was not disappointed. I arrived for the rally a few days early and got a great shade camp site far enough away from the crowds. With that choice I did have to either ride or walk a fair distance to the showers and even farther to the main lodge,... More

I have stayed at Shade Valley very year since it opened. It was great the first year and it has improved every year after. Cleanest and friendliest campground in Sturgis. Staff are the best and really try to make everyone happy. I will never consider staying anywhere else.
