Considering it was Wachs that got KTM to bring it to Bend we should all be paying homage.
There are literally thousands of campsites within an hour of Bend. There are some great dispersed (read free) campsites within a few minutes of the Mt Bachelor Village location of the event as the border of the Deschutes National Forest is maybe 5 minutes from the resort. The resort is kind of on the west edge of town but it's easy to drop down the hill across the Deschutes River into the Old Mill District (lots of restaurants, bars, shopping for the Mrs, etc) or into town. There's about 7 brew pubs within 10 minutes.
I've lived in Bend since 1993. If anybody needs advice or info just shoot me a message and I'll be glad to help out.
Looking forward to the event!
