Up to 1 million bikers could flock to the Black Hills for the 75th Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in August, television station KEVN reported, and Buffalo Chip Campground — South Dakota’s newest town — is getting ready for the event.
Buffalo Chip opened the grounds Friday as they gear up for the summer ahead.
Rod Woodruff, owner of Buffalo Chip Campground, said, “It’s just an acknowledgement that I think something’s going to happen here pretty soon and we better be getting ready for it.”
This is the campground’s 34th year in business, and soon it will be packed with RVs.
Buffalo Chip is adding hundreds of new sites with full power, water, and Wi-Fi will be available to everyone on the grounds.
Woodruff said “We are a rally business – we are here to promote the rally. We’re here to be the rally – to be here for the people who want to come and ride motorcycles around the Black Hills.”
Buffalo Chip rents out several thousand campers at a rate of $3,000 for the rally season.
Buffalo Chip becomes the state’s third-largest city during the rally.
