The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally typically occurs during the first full week of August every year. Hundreds of thousands of motorcyclists gather in the Black Hills region, and often visit particular sites on certain days. The "Ride to Devils Tower" typically occurs on the Wednesday of that week. Visitors can expect extremely long lines and waits to enter the park.
Generally, the increased traffic and visitation from Rally Week are unavoidable. However, visiting the park before 8 am or after 5 pm will offer you a much less congested experience.
