Thinking about Sturgis this year

I've never been to Sturgis. Thinking about doing it in 2014 with a friend. Where do you all stay? Camp or Hotel? Or?

Any hints and tips would be appreciated.

Thanks

Robins Nest in Hill City SD, is where we did our home base from... They called it a Condo???
Well worth the $$$ we had to spend, a quadraplex... Our unit had three bedrooms and a garage...
More than enough room for three men and for our three Bikes in our unit...
Kinda Centrally located amoungst the various attractions/routes...
We stayed there in 2011, and rode 300+ miles each day in different directions...
What ever you decide on, You aughtta make your reservations now...

This is the place I rented for 20 of us in 2015. We will be staying 9 nights here the full week before and half the week after the rally starts. Looks like a great big epic trip to remember. We will be only 10 miles from Sturgis and only miles more to Deadwood.
It's best to book in advance if you want to get what you want. Thats why I jumped on it two years in advance for the 2015 rally.

A lot I think. We will have at least 14 bikes on the trip. We will for sure need a strategic method for parking. I think the double door will be the in and the single door will be the out.

Contact Us | Vacation Home Renter

An old highschool friend of mine has a business renting out vacation properties out in the Black Hills. Most of them are ski/snowmobile resorts up around Terry Peak and they're not cheap, but if you have a group it's worth it. I think they block off all of the cabins for Sturgis week and run different pricing, but it's certainly worth an e-mail.

FYI - today (3/21) is Anne's birthday!
