Suggestions for Sturgis Bike Ralley 2014

This will be the first time with our MH and trailer at Sturgis.

Anybody have any suggestions on campgrounds that aren't too crazy and can handle a big rig? Preferably somehwhat close to Sturgis.

I know it's a ways out but you got to make RSVP's early.

I'd stay in Rapid City. Some good RV parks there and close enough to the mayhem (Sturgis).
My advice is to get up early to ride all the beautiful roads as all the partiers are still in their sleeping bag with a hangover. After that, it's usually motorcycle gridlock everywhere.
Have fun, it's always an unforgettable experience.

We have stayed here before . . . pretty good place, easy access, only 18 miles from Sturgis, maybe 15 minutes from Rapid City.

We've stayed at Three Flags several times when passing through. They told us they are one of the few rv parks that don't raise the rates during Sturgis, right off I 90 and convenient to Sturgis

I just checked their website. They do increase their rates during the ralley time but is still reasonable compared to others I've looked into.

Thanks everybody for the info!

We know Lazy J in Rapid City jacks their rates to over $70/day during Sturgis. Make sure you get rates in writing. We were lucky that we found out before we got there & changed our plans to after Sturgis.

The last few times we've stayed at Glencoe. They have huge sites, don't even need to unhook the trailer, full hookups, a great happy hour everyday at their onsite bar. Bands daily. A short walk across the street to the Full Throttle and a 3 mile or so bike ride into town and Main Street. It used to be pretty crazy, but the last couple years it has toned down.

A Sturgis RV park. It is a very nice park. You can walk to town and be in the middle of it all, yet it is quiet and clean. It is pricy for the rally.

Just a little FYI - Vendors are probably the only ones that go by the Rally schedule and they don't do the greatest job of that either.

I went this past rally (2013) and got there on Monday. On the way there, I saw so many people LEAVING! So many, I thought I had the wrong dates. It seems, as I heard from others, that a great number of people go early and ride the area before the rally. There was still a LOT of people there, just NOT as many as I thought and those I passed going the opposite direction would have been what I expected. We stayed between Sturgis and Rapid City at Thunder Gulch. Nice CG but no hookups where I was. I used my bike trailer as a camper/tent, and used the CGs facilities.

Like I said about the vendors, we (someone in my group of 12) found a souvenir that was custom made to display the names of those that went. 4 of 12 bought Friday night (the group had separated to 2 smaller groups downtown) and at least 4 more of us went early Saturday morning to get our own souvenir memento and the vendor was already packing up and refused to make us our memento and we had cash and he had the computer design already done from the others the night before. So, if you see something you want, get it when you see it.

Happy riding and may I suggest taking the round trip train ride between Hill City and Keystone. The road going beside the tracks is a nice ride on your bike too.
