We are in the very early planning stages of a two week family trip to SD and Yellowstone in August of 2014. Before looking at the Sturgis dates, I was thinking/hoping to fly into Denver on Saturday August 9 and driving to Custer State Park and staying at a lodge in CSP for a few nights. It looks like Sturgis lasts until the 10th next year. We are a family of 4 with two girls (will be 8 years old at the time). My thought was to stay around the CSP area on the 10th and maybe drive to Badlands for the day on the 11th (returning to CSP).
My main concern is how crowded/noisy/chaotic will it be down in the CSP area the last day or two of Sturgis?
