I'm up for camping too, but not knowing the area, local rider info would be of great help.
In years past it was nice to be close to the event as to have a place to hang out and socialize. I prefer not to have to hop on a bike after a beer and meal to ride back 10 miles to camp next to a freeway. A nice place that we can keep our gear safe as we venture off is a big plus too.
Probably be best to get some campgrounds sorted now and reserved so they don't fill up to fast.
Any local riders willing to help with the leg work?
