ATV Trails Camp 5 Trailhead (Sturgis)

ATV riders who miss riding the Camp 5 area during their Black Hills vacation, miss a diverse set of rides filled with remnants’ of old gold mines and beautiful geological scenery.  Trail 8041 will take you in and Trail 8042 will bring you out.  If you find Galena, take 170 East for some extreme trails.

See you September 21-23 2018 at the Sturgis Off-Road Rally.

*Camp 5 is the location of our most extreme trails. Trails 8042, 8043, 4045, 8046, 8049 are extreme. I have traveled all these trails on a 550 Sportsman. Depending on what machine you are driving you may be able to navigate them as well. Anyone renting a machine should avoid these trails because you are likely to be charged for damage when you return the unit.

Trails 8044 and 8047 navigate through the extreme area, but are very much passable. Care should be taken to not drift off these trails as they intersect in numerous locations with the extreme trails.

  1. The Black Hills have great ATV trails and Forest Service roads. I have traveled most of them. Our forest service roads are either road-like or trail-like. On my Favorite Rides pages, I have highlighted the many TRAIL-LIKE Forest Service Roads and the ATV trails.

    I put this website together to help others enjoy their ATV visit to South Dakota. When I ATV out of my state, I realize how difficult it is to plan a three day ride without good information. I hope my website will be good information for you.
