The RV sites were huge. We had two RV sites which had plenty of room for both RVs, 6 motorcycles, 2 pick up trucks with a lane between them, are large tent and seating areas. We could have put even more in them. They take "The Quiet Campground" title seriously. We witnessed a man being evicted for having a screaming... More

Although its a little outside of town its worth the 10 mile scoot to get to it. I have never had that much room at a campsite honestly. We trailered this time and you can park the trailer, truck and bike three across and still have room. What a great place to come home to. The showers are a bit... More

We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Shade Valley. We are 10 miles outside of Sturgis city limits - close enough for a quick ride to the Main Street activities, but just far enough away from the all-night party crowd. Our emphasis is to provide a clean and well maintained facility in a safe environment. There are plenty... More

This is the 2nd time we stayed at Shade Valley (2012 & 2015) We stayed in a cabin both times. The air mattresses are always a bit of a surprise but work well enough. The campground is very clean and the staff takes great care in emptying the trash cans that are outside your cabin area on a regular basis.... More

Thank you for taking time to share your experience at Shade Valley. Our staff is very diligent in cleaning bathrooms and showers - and picking up garbage on an ongoing basis.

First was told it was shady. Campsite was out in the open and no shade at all. Only one set of showers located a very long way from camping site. They were clean however and short line at night. In our campground, only one male and one female restroom for maybe 1500+ people. At least 10+ person wait every morning.... More

Thank you taking time to share your experience at Shade Valley. Our RV Sites do not have very many trees - if any in them - mostly because we do not want to create obstacles for our guests in pulling/backing their RV into place. However we have acres and acres of trees in our non-electrical tent sites and in most... More

We enjoyed our stay at Shade Valley. The live music and bars make staying in camp area very easy. If you want to go into Sturgis there is a bus to take you (which is a great idea and very easy). The camp ground is very clean and shower areas very clean. The only thing I wish would have been... More

I was immediately attracted to this RV campground. The grounds are very well maintained. We did have one issue when we got to our site; we weren't getting any power to our RV, but within an hour a couple of maintenance workers came and found and fixed the problem. They have a variety of activities like zip lining and free... More

One of the best places to get a mix of biker party and yet has quite sleeping too. Clean bathrooms, fun saloon and great cafe pup style food kitchen. bikini bike wash and bike workshop on site only negative would be that cabins are just small sheds.
