    Just pull in and pick a spot. No reservations are necessary as we've got the whole place to ourselves.

    Oh! And welcome aboard!

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.

    Excellent thanks.

    Being new to camping, is there some etiquette I should know about saving a spot next to me for a friend arriving later in the week? I guess I plan on arriving Wed afternoon, he won't be in until Friday afternoon.

    Sometimes you can park your bike in a spot that would be big enough for a tent or you can leave some space between you and the next person that you could squeeze a tent in.

    Here's a pic from last years rally - it kind of gives you the idea of what the camping looks like. It's a lot of fun to camp!!!


    Good Luck!

    There are a few ways to do it, but usually the most polite way to do it is to park your bike in the spot for your friend. Most people also ask before pitching tent to make sure it is okay to do it.

    Having said that, the Rally doesn't open until Thursday.

    Does it cost to camp at the rally site other than paying the registration fee?
    Ok, so what you are telling me is that the motorcycle will not stay up without the kickstand?

    Yup. Pretty much the whole place is available for camping. Of course, they have "party all night" and "go to bed early" apart from each other.
