Campers can establish a campground Wednesday evening. If you choose to wait until Thursday morning, you'll want to plan to arrive earlier than the start (8 am) or wait until after the ride - park in the green section then establish your camp in the blue section upon finishing your ride. First come, first serve.
If you are staying in hotels, park in the green parking area when you come to ride (or ride your bike to the start). The blue section is designated for areas campers staying (not driving in and out of the Fairgrounds) and will accommodate detachable camping situations. If you plan on leaving each day, please move your car to the green section after setting up your camp. It is disruptive to a camping situation to consistently move your car, please think of others.
Rider check-in, information, music, beer garden, breakfast, lunch and showers will be in the pink and yellow area along with the kid's play area and picnic tables.
