Things To Know Before You Come
JUNE VOLUNTARY CLIMBING CLOSURE
Sturgis Motorcycle Rally August 3-7, 2015
The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally takes place each August in Sturgis, South Dakota, about 80 miles from Devils Tower. Tens of thousands of motorcyclists come from all over. Many of them visit Devils Tower during the rally. The Wednesday of rally week is the busiest day at the park. Wednesday, August 5 there will be a shuttle for long vehicles. To meet the shuttle, park in the long vehicle parking lot near the campground. The shuttle will operate 9 am to 4 pm. This will alleviate congestion near the base of the Tower.

Prairie falcons sometimes nest in the cracks of Devils Tower. Climbing routes near the nest are closed until the young falcons fledge.
