I’m planning my first trip to Sturgis and I need some help finding a campground in the Deadwood area. I’ve looked in the net and found a couple of places but it's awfully hard to tell what the campground is really like when I can only see one small photo.

If anyone knows of a good campground in Deadwood, I would be forever grateful.

Thanks for the recommendation. Unfortunately when I called the KOA campground in Deadwood, they are all booked during the rally dates. :(

I'm planning to drive from San Francisco (via Canada) to the rally and the drive will take almost 12 days round trip. Due to my job, I can only stay in Sturgis for 3 days. Do you think it will be possible/advisable to just drive into the Deadwood, without reservations, and find a camp site?

Are reservations a must during the rally?

Sometimes!!! you can drive into a campground without a reservation, particulary toward the end of Rally. Is it a safe bet? No, it's not. Keep searching. You'll find some campgrounds in the area.

Oh, don't forget the H/D Forum get together over at Fifth's & Deb's campground. Several members have spots there. (There's a thread on the topic.) And there's likely to be a H/D Forum "ride" on day, too. See if you can schedule your time in the area so you can meet some fellow members.

FYI. I recently heard there were some, a few rooms, available in Rapid City. IF you're willing to pay the bucks!

Thanks Ginger. The campground looks perfect and I've submitted my reservations.

There's a cold beer waiting for you at exit 37 in August. My treat.
