2015 Monumental USCA Rally

Mary Jo This is a tourist area that can accommodate thousands at a time. Our Rally will only be a little bump in the beginning of the tourist season. If we entered a list. there would be no way to end the list. Google "Sturgis motels" and you will get enough hits to keep you busy for some time. Sturgis is 5 miles from the Elkview camp ground and has a complete line of national chain motels as well as some Mom and Pops motels. There is a cabin complex just across the interstate from the Elkview called Rushnomore. We will talk with them about a deal. Let you know later Harold in the Hills

At this point there is no "official motel" but I've got reservations at...

Best Western Sturgis Inn
2431 Junction Ave
Sturgis, SD 57785

It's about 6 miles from Elkview Campground and the closest "regular" motel as far as I can tell.

There are LOTS of choices in the area, from minimal low budget places to some really expensive ones. We are going to be there during the "off season rates" [read NOT during the Black Hills Motor Classic] so most places are at least reasonable.

Elkview campground and other Accommodations.

Check out the Elkview Campground web site http://www.elkviewcampground.com
this will give you an idea of the amenities that are available at the Elkview. They no longer show rates or take reservations on the website because of the difference between the regular season and the Rally season.

They will begin taking phone reservations for our event after April 1. They don't require a deposit and if you arrive early or want to stay a little longer that will just okay. I will remind you some time near April 1 that reservations are open.

RV rates for full service (Water, Electricity and sewer) is $25 per day for 2 people. $6 a day for each extra person.

Tent camping is $8 per person per night. There are some sites that have electricity for an extra charge but they are close to the interstate.

Check this web site http://www.rushnomore.com . We were disappointed when we checked with them and found that they are hosting a family reunion that weekend. They have a few cabins left so if you are interested call them quickly.

Google “Sturgis Motels” and you will find 5 or 6 motels in Sturgis and 20 or more in the the surrounding towns. Don't accept the prices that are shown on the web sites because the are still showing tourist rates. Next June should be more reasonable.

I am messing around,experimenting, with entering pictures on the forum. the following are pictures taken at the Elkveiw Campground. They unedited and un labeled until I learn how to do that. This is frustrating, Between using a shared internet connection in an RV campground and using a Web mail address it takes forever to down load files. I also tried to download 2 pictures and I got one picture twice. The picture that you do see is of the RV sites and down by the trees is one of the tenting areas. This is the preferred tenting area because it will get the sun in the morning and shade in the afternoon. The bathroom/shower house is just off the picture to the right.

Welcome Kenny:
I thought you must be new. I didn't remember seeing your name on my list of members. I saw that you ride the Iron Mountain Road on your orange Ural so you must live in or near the Black Hills. We are planning a very full and fun rally. Hope to meet you then or sooner.

I live in Gillette,

Ride the area, a lot, great ride, do Devils tower often.

Kenny
