    Cool

    Other than some camping on private property "The Buffalo Chip Campground" is where a great many choose to camp out. Do not expect peace and quiet.

    He's right. Don't plan on getting any sleep. If you don't already have reservations, I would recommend staying in a nearby town and going in for a day trip. The next time I go, I'm going to stay in Rapid City, do a day thing then head for peace and quiet. Don't forget the ear plugs.

    Good Luck,

    Camping in the Hills

    Easy is right on all counts. I am assuming you mean that you are tent camping. There are any number of campgrounds along I 90 between Rapid City and Sturgis. Some are just a spot and a portapot. I have stayed at the Whispering Pines in the center of the Hills (on 385) has a meadow which is also a spot and a pot with showers 1/4 mile walk. I have stayed at Chris's camp at Spearfish it is nicer but you will need a reservation for sure. I spend most of the summer at the TeePee campground on 16 south of Rapid city. The whole Hills just rumbles 24/14 (that's 2 weeks) Camping just gets disgusting in and near Sturgis.

    If you take RT 85 SW out of Sturgis threw Deadwood and Lead and continue to and cross the state line into Wy. there's a place called the Flying V Ranch that has camping. we stayed there in 07 and loved it. if you don't need elec the camping is FREE. they do charge $3.00 for a hot shower. just Google them for more info...
