    Rally Site Map

    Is there an updated map that shows more of the layout of the rally? Like where the club area going to be located at, show trailers, and the most important beer tent, etc? The only map that I can find of the rally site is just the basic map of the Cam-Plex.

    We visited the site on Friday to finalize the details and locations. If you have access to the Cam-plex site diagram....much of the camping (the North Forty) will be in the Box-Elder RV area. That's also where the shower trailers are. The Beemer Saloon will be in the East Pavillion, on the East end, and the chartered club tables and chairs will be on the West end. We'll have a complete site map on-line long before the rally begins!

    Thanks

    I must be blind. Is there a site map available other than the one on the Cam-Plex site? I want to pick a general area for camping so that my club members will know where to look for each other.

    This picture is small but a lot of the Boxelder RV park looks like gravel. The only grassy areas I see are in the center, what the Cam-plex calls "commons areas." Is this the only tent camping area on the grounds? Also, will the tenters be sharing the RV campground with RVs?



    Are there any other tenting areas on the grounds?

    there should not be any rv's in the area that will be used for camping. I spoke to a lady about this back in January. she assured me that they were going to use part of the rv park for tents only...

    BoxElder is an RV campground. the Roads are a crushed red surface that will be watered to keep down any dust. (I'm told this type of surface doesn't create much dust). This will be referred to as the "North 40" (even though it's not North It is quiet camping, there is grass, and there are 4 shower trailers (48 showers). There may be a few RV's in the far eastern row (to serve as a windbreak , but it is definitely tent camping. There will be a shuttle running between the North 40 and Rally Central.

    There also will be camping near rally central, but that will be the "noisy" area, because it's closer to the entertainment. If you are on the Cam-Plex site, it is referred to as the Reata RV camping (No RVs). This is also the area for Special Needs camping (C-pap machines, etc). and Chartered Club tents for the clubs that have big tents.

    The Windmill RV camping is RV's only. We will only use that specified section of the North Forty if the Windmill RV camp fills. The North Forty is a "NO GENERATOR" area.

    The finishing touches are being put on the map for the rally program, and will be available on line shortly.

    Hmmm. It doesn't look in the pictures like there is enough room in the grassy common areas to accommodate the number of tents there usually are. In other words, we better get there early or else we'll be camped on gravel where an RV has set. That means an extra heavy ground cloth, long sturdy nails for stakes and a heavy-duty hammer.

    The Cam-plex site says there is grass in the "Native grass common areas
    Lawn sports and picnic areas." Can we camp on the grass in the lower right of this photo?

    There was lots of grass, the picture is just poor. I think it's because all the RV's parked there. Is it Kentucky Blue Grass in Boxelder? Nope, but it's grass, and it's thick enough not to worry about bringing your "Heavy Duty camp in the dirt" stuff!

    So the ground under the RVs is grassy and relatively smooth (not rutted)? I'll believe that when I see it. Anyone have a picture?

    Here you go...not golf course grass, but native grass, and better than many campgrounds I've stayed in while traveling.

    Slept like a baby on that grass with some wonderful breeze from the west (hint, which way do I face the tent?), then got up th next morning, and leisurely walked over to my own (shared bath but a class act) bath with sink h/c running water, hot hot showers WITH drains (not a trough between yer legs). The whole campground is justt far enough away from the main event to allow for privacy...I have no complaints

    I can't wait, it's taking over my brain approaching the 30 day ETD!

    Looks good:)

    What are those permanant trailers sitting there? Showers, restrooms, or what? Showers have been such a huge issue in even "recent" rallies and it sure would be nice to have facilities that keep up with the crush. The big rig trailer showers have been quite a nice addition in recent years and have done a lions share to help this concern. Keep up the good work. We like our showers, as we campout. THX.,Randy

    Those are shower trailers with restrooms. There are 4 trailers - 12 showers in each.


    Each one also has a washtub/sink, that could be used to hand wash clothes, dishes. Plenty of mirrors, and (can't remember the number of restroom stalls in each).


    Typically they're set up to be 6 each men's and women's. 2 trailers will be all men's (so 6 of them may not have the urinals you've come to expect ) The middle 2 trailers will be 1/2 men's and 1/2 women's. That equates to 36 men's and 12 women's. There are also a few showers located in Rally Central, but the bulk are in the North Forty!!
