Here's a link to the campground http://www.elkviewcampground.com/
We have been in this campground the last 5 years, very nice sites, only
5 miles east of Sturgis right off the freeway at exit #37 - I90, cold beer, good food, very good staff, reasonable prices. If you try for a reservation, mention that Vicki & Tim in site #20 referred you.....he usually is full by now, but sometimes saves a few sites for referrals or will get you in a cancellation.
The only drawback to this campground is that the roads are gravel. Last year was the only year he did not have a water truck contracted to keep the dust down (guy backed out at the last day), but I would think Jack will probably have bought his own this year.
The dealer we bought our bikes from (North Country BH) bought a house in Central City......when you go out of Deadwood on US 85 towards Lead and come into Central City, you take the service road off to the right and up the hill. Overlooks the highway, sits next to 2 small, but well stocked bars. Last year he had live music at the house......good time.
Coming from Lead, the service road swings off to the left...up the hill.
Usually there are a lot of BH riders at Sturgis, but no one has ever put together a scheduled ride. If anyone is interested, we should throw some dates and times out to get together for at least one group outing through Spearfish Canyon at least, or out to Sundance for the burnout contests on Wednesday?????
As a note, Wag & our group generally make a lot of visits to the Legion in Deadwood, great cocktails and beers, very good steak/prime rib dinner for cheap.....Wag always seems to good on their slots too......we usually stop on our way down to Needles and Keystone. Vicki & I like to hit Main Street and watch the "road show" several nights, but try to get out of town well before the bars close....
