This was the 3rd year in a row I've stayed at Buffalo Chip. Keep in mind that this place is HUGE! Yes there are outhouses that smell, but there are clean flush toilets in different locations as well. Yes, sometimes the showers run out of hot water, but this year, I had 6 hot showers and 1 luke warm shower, it appears they have fixed the hot water situation. I personally ride my bike 1000 miles and sleep in a tent. I'm not looking for the Hilton when I get to Sturgis. This is a great CAMPGROUND with sufficient facilities for the tens of thousands of people who stay at The Chip. The music is first rate, not for everyone's taste, but they try and get a good variety of acts. You'll never go hungry or thirsty at The Chip. What else can I say? If you ride, make sure the Sturgis Rally is on your bucket list and visit The Buffalo Chip when you are there! If you can't handle a bit of roughing it, then maybe trailer your bike somewhere else!
