Loved the bands and the grounds. Everything you need for camping is on site. Clean hot showers, ice, beer. PARTY TIME I'm from New Orleans and this is as good as Mardi Gras. You can't see all the bands anywhere for the price

Buffalo chip is THE PLACE to be for the Sturgis rally. All the best concerts are here. We camped in the South 40. Our location was perfect! Close to the amphitheater, vendors, general store and showers. We will be back this year!

Buffalo chip has the best concerts and who wants to see concerts and have to deal with cops. I swear you can ride perfect and not ever drink and have a cop pull you over, it happened.
