    A visit to the Gypsy Tour campground

    Hi - got a chance to stop by Byrd's Adventure Center in Ozark, AR on the way home from the Adventure Summit in Utah. Unfortunately, I was in an RV and couldn't spend a day riding around.

    The riding in this area is phenomenal, you really need to register and join the fun.

    Here are a few pics to whet your appetite.

    Your ride starts here with a stop-in at the Oark store. Getcha a burger....


    There will be a swimmin' hole....


    The scenery is somewhat unique.


    There is plenty of trail riding right at the campground. And wait until you see the surrounding area.




    You're going to have a great time!

    Ian

    There will be electric in just about every campsite. Water, too.

    Here's a glimpse of the "hard" route to Sedalia

    The Ozark Boyz have been busy. They're putting together a track that runs about 65 miles of what you see below, with a route that takes a ferry across Lake of the Ozarks and then some nice Missouri backroads to the Rally.

    You leave Byrd's and get into some fun stuff like this...


    Hike a short way out to the Glory Hole and getcha some GS BS points..


    Here's why the hard ride is a track and not a route. Garmin wouldn't draw the route through the river.




    Great job, Ozark boyz!

    Gypsy Tour registrations are rolling in! The Queen is very pleased to see so many royal subjects returning to court! And so many new names too! Someone must be talking it up!

    See ya found it,Visian:)

    The "Store" in Oark and eats. Of course i have the same pic, GSA in front. Love to see it all again soon. Did they get a good rain season, Winter and Spring? When I came through a couple years back, it was a dry year, low water. I never saw the resort, must have bypassed it in my adventurism there. Not hard to do, as the Ozark woods are thick, deep and just too much fun. Randy

    Peel Ferry

    The GS Gypsy Tour riders will get to take a nice break on their way from Arkansas to Missouri. I just love ferry rides in the middle of an Adventure Ride.

    Peel Ferry is the last public ferryboat operating in the state of Arkansas. It transports vehicles and passengers across a section of Bull Shoals Lake. Open daily from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

    No, you don't need to dress like a pirate to ride the ferry...

    Destination for one of the "hard" dayride options...

    About 60 miles from the BMW MOA rally, Cooper Creek offers an off-roading opportunity for riders heading to, or riding out from Sedalia. You can find out more specifics, including camping info, at the GS Giant's Adventure Summit FB page.



    Here are are few shots of where we'll be riding. The place also gets some ATV use, so many of the trails are wide and easy to ride. However, there were more than a few hero loops.... and thanks to Brian Burdette for going riding on a cold November day.

    Here's the other option for a "hard" day ride...

    ... or a great place to stop on your way to the BMW MOA rally to the east.

    Fingerlakes State Park OHV area.

    Low fees, looks to be some really nice camping.
