Once upon a time
the Rally existed primarily inside the town of Sturgis.
City Park was
open to camping and that's where everyone stayed. The
events were spaced out. You could go to the races one day,
Big Daddy Rat's custom bike show the next, and then hang-out
downtown at Gunner's on the third night.
different...a lot different.
When the town of
Sturgis closed City Park, campgrounds started springing up
outside of Sturgis. Some of them offering a quiet nights
stay...others offering their own entertainment. With the new
campgrounds there was room for a lot more people. The Rally
attendance went from tens of thousands of people to hundreds
of thousands of people and the Rally has never been the same
On any given day
there are all kinds of events going on at once...and...it's
not only in Sturgis but throughout the Black Hills.
For example Hulett, WY has the free Hulett Ham 'n' Jam on
Wednesday and Custer, SD has the Custer Cruisin' Rally week.
So how do you fit
it all in? How do you hit everything you want to in Sturgis?
That's why we
created The Sturgis Rally Guide Book.
We know that
people come to Sturgis for different reasons.
Some come for the
rides, scenery and fellowship. Others of you come
to...well... see lots of naked girls and hot bikes.
If you came for
the girls and ended up staying at Sheridan Campground you
would be disappointed. Likewise if you came to get away from
the hustle and bustle you won't be happy staying at Buffalo
The same goes for
the events. There are three distinct zones to the
Sturgis Rally. Each zone has it own unique events and
entertainment. For example if you want a great bar to meet
friends at you'll be in a different zone than if you want to
see drag racing or dancing girls.
So what are you
going to do in Sturgis? What are your plans?
You will spend
hundreds if not thousands of dollars on food, travel,
entertainment, and places to stay during the 2016 Sturgis
Rally. Take a moment and look at the following list to

What others are saying about The Sturgis Rally Guide Book...
Sturgis Rally Guide Book is the most complete guide to
the Sturgis experience. I highly recommend it."
Former Sturgis Motorcycle Rally Director
"Just wanted to
let you know that the book WAS WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!
thanks, we're leaving Belgium on Saturday and scheduled the
perfect trip thanks to you!"
"Great book! Thank
"Thanks for the info! I am coming next year
for the first time. I'm 54 and two of my buds are coming and
we are planning on camping out."
Waxhaw, North Carolina
appreciate being able to get the info. It will be our first
time, and it is actually our honeymoon, so we want to have
fun. We already have a hotel, but we wanted other info. We
went to Little Sturgis this past weekend and it wasn't so
much fun. Big Sturgis appears to be MUCH more organized.
Thanks for the service you provide."
