In 2017 we went and this place was great. All kinds of activities and entertainment in the Eye Candy Saloon; wet t-shirt contest, sexy bull riding, body painting, good bands, and great servers. Even provided you with a free Da Bus Pass. Also, everything was very clean. In 2018, new ownership took over and things changed big time, and not for the good. You want a porta-potty near by, pay me. You want a picnic table, pay me. You want fun activities in the bar, nope, going to get rid of them. Big name bands, nope, cost to much. That fee Da Bus pass, even though we told you it was included, we are not going to provide it. (After threat of a bait and switch lawsuit, they provided Da Bus pass one last time). Such a dramatic change from 2017 to 2018, we took our business elsewhere. I spoke to people last year and this year and they said the same thing, very boring, clean, but boring and way to far away.

Make sure you have EVERYTHING in writing before you have your wedding there. The owner tried changing MANY things AFTER we paid and were already there to set up. Also VERY rude to family members and even yelled at a few elderly ones that were helping set up. The staff was nice. Just a psycho owner that has a great sales pitch but isn’t an honest person.

Stayed here while staying in Sturgis with family. Great quiet Rv park with a saloon and entertainment daily. Large sites with full hookups, nice washrooms and bathhouse. Restaurants onsite serving breakfast, tacos, beer garden, and burgers and such. Great place to return to after a day of riding and sightseeing.

We stayed at this camp ground for a week. It has good camping facilities. They can accommodate several campers, and tents. The main lodge is truly an amazing throw back to western history. With its saddle seats, to the wax iconic out laws , it is the place to stay. The bar host an out side area, for those who like to smoke, and an inside area, with stage for non smokers. There is an out side restaurant that serves smoked pork tacos, served on fresh grilled tortillas, with Pico, and fresh guacamole ! It is just far enough from the town of Sturgis, that it remains quiet, and relaxed. They also have a free bus that give rides into town every fifteen minutes. I will definitely stay here again. The people are very friendly, and courteous. I cant say enough for out maintence men! They were fantastic!! I will be visiting again in 2019!!

I will admit when I seen the photos about Shade Vally camp ground I was nervous seeing that you had to walk to the bathroom and showers. But once we arrived it was really nice! The bathroom/shower area was SUPER CLEAN! We were very impressed!! They kept it very well maintained. Even for the go johns they cleaned them out everyday! It was very nice to see that they kept everything well maintained. I can’t speak well enough about how they put a lot of effort to having people keep it so clean. The only thing was that we stayed till sun morning that day the rally was over. The campground had no band show Friday or Sat. . It was very quite When we went up to check out the entertainment and it was like a ghost town. I do understand that people did leave the Friday but I thought there should of been some entertainment for Friday. And for the breakfast that last 2 days the selection was minimum and ran out of orange juice. Other than that the campground was very nice!
