Situated in the northern Black Hills, Sturgis RV Park is the ideal place to discover…and rediscover…an endless variety of soul-quenching day trips. The surrounding area has one of the highest concentrations of national parks and monuments in the country. Along the scenery-splashed byways you travel to visit the attractions listed below, you’ll see for yourself why the Black Hills region is such an intriguing destination.

Deadwood — Designated a National Historic Landmark in 1961, Deadwood’s history is readily apparent in its lively downtown district. The town’s Mount Moriah Cemetery is the final resting place of Wild Bill Hickock, Calamity Jane, Seth Bullock and other icons of the Old West. Gambling was legalized in Deadwood in 1989 and immediately brought significant new revenues and development.

Centennial Trail — The perfect way to experience the Black Hills for an hour, a day or a week, Centennial Trail can be accessed from Sturgis RV Park. This is the longest trail in the Black Hills, with more than two dozen access points at intervals of 3 to 10 miles.You'll experience old growth forests, sunny meadows dotted with wildflowers, towering granite crags and remote canyons.

Mickelson Trail — Completed in 1998, this 109-mile hiking/bicycling trail runs from Deadwood at its northern end to Edgemont at its southern end.

Each of 15 trailheads offer parking, self-sale trail pass stations, vault toilets, and tables.
