Buffalo Chip Campground

Sturgis camping at the Buffalo Chip Campground for a week costs far less than the cost of a Sturgis motel room for one single night, especially if you plan ahead. The Buffalo Chip rewards those who purchase packages, by offering discounted prices for rally passes, extended rally passes, and early bird passes which includes your tent camping, showers, entertainment and a wild assortment of activities throughout the day, along with the concerts in the evening. Prices are subject to increase without notice, so we encourage you to make your reservations now for the best concerts, entertainment and camping in Sturgis.

Everyone knows the Chip has the greatest Sturgis Rally Concerts. It is normal for the headliners not to confirm until the last minute. However, the Buffalo Chip will continue to provide our Sturgis campers with the best entertainment available every year, just as we have in the past. The word seems to be out in the music industry and the stars want to play for the Chip’s Sturgis campers. Accordingly, our Sturgis campers have each year seen and heard 9 consecutive nights of great entertainment. Check out the various bands that have played over the past 30 plus year history of the Chip.

    I know y’all don’t have many trees out there. How hot dose it get out in the sun ? I am from Louisiana and it gets very hot in the sun. Do we need to bring a tarp for shade

  2. I look forward each year to my Sturgis trip. Now that you have Cross Rds, I was excited to finally get in and purchase Buffalo Chip items. Well let me tell you the clothing sucked big time. There wasn’t a very good selection and there were all small sized for women. Stop buying china… any extra large looks like its for 12 year olds. Not just at the Buffalo chip but down town Sturgis. Way to save a buck guys. I wont be back. I heard others talking about the same thing also. I was disappointed.

  3. Good morning!!!! This my first trip to Buffalo Chip camp ground and Sturgis and I’m excited! The folks at The Buffalo Chip Camp Grounds have bent over backward to accommodate me and my family!! Just wanted to thank them for their hard work at trying to satisfied all of their customers. They keep me well informed on everything that’s going on and any changes with checking in and out of their camp ground. I know it’s hard to please everyone but I have to give the staff at Buffalo Chip a A+ for their effort. thank you guys and I’ll see you on the 27th of July….Thanks again…John (:
