Hotel rooms in Sturgis, South Dakota got fully booked fast with over 700,000 motorcycle enthusiasts pouring in for the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. Locals then thought of a way to solve this problem,  offering a cheaper alternative to those who couldn’t get a reservation.

Sturgis residents began renting their yards to the visitors. Most guests bring their own tent and chairs. The host will provide access to the bathroom and other amenities. According to the report’s source, Vinny Terranova is one of the locals who has been using his yard as a campground for eight years.

In the report, Terranova improves the yard a little bit annually so that rally-goers can have “a safe and fun place to stay.” For a small fee, folks attending the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally can stay in Terranova’s yard while he provides food, showers, and refreshments.

He has been attending the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally for 40 years, the report said. Terranova decided to let his yard be open to motorcycle enthusiasts once he settled down in the area. He also enjoyed meeting new people from all parts of the country.

Terranova hosts block parties during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally because he is so close to downtown. KOTA TV told Terranova that the rally and campground “feel like a little America.”

The report also mentions Susan Johnson, Black Hills Central Reservations CEO. She said that the campgrounds may be busier than ever. She claims that people from different states are “bringing their toys to Black Hills this summer, including campers, UTVs, and bikes as well as canoes and canoes.”

“It is America’s playground and has been very busy. Everyone wants to be outside,” she added.
