I may be camping at HH that weekend. Bright blue Tacoma with a Tahoe 18' Toyhauler. Look for the red and white Husky TE310.

If I know where you'll be in advance, I may join your circle of wagons, space permitting.

Anyway, we're doing a Sheetiron tune-up ride at Hollister and camping out Saturday night at Hollister Hills on April 27-28 .... some pics from last year's SI tune-up ride at Hollister:


I would like to make this ride and shake down my bike before Sheetiron. any extra room in the campground for a Husaberg rider.

Hi mtbjeff,

Hollister is fun, and there should be plenty of room for everyone ... we usually camp back in the Madrone campground, which is past the store, making it the last campground at the end of the access road ...

I think they now charge $10 if you're riding in to camp ... it used to be free if you rode in, because the $10 was a parking fee for tow rigs, but that was too good to last ...

I'll post up more info about what time we'll be getting there ... we may have some folks there Friday night, and we'll definately be there Saturday.

see you around the campfire,
-- SFMCjohn

Day rides if you ride in are free. If you haul your dirt bike in, you pay $5 for the day.

Camping has always been $10/night AFAIK.

BTW, Annual Pass isn't good for camping, only day rides. Which is kind of a rip off, but that's how it works.


Either way, it's cheap fun in my book. Even at $10, that's half what you'd pay at a National Forest. Even the ones without any trails to ride.

Always been $10? Nope it was $7 to camp and $4 to truck in the last time I was there. Hi Curt.

So that was what? 15 years ago?

Cuz it's been $10 since at least 2007...


The point was it was never FREE to camp... AFAIK. I'm sure they've raised the rates once or twice over the years.

Yeah, well, I'm still skiing the bunny slopes so to speak.

But at least that's where the ski bunnies are!

Hey all,

So, some of us BAARCers and SFMCers will be at Hollister Hills OHV Park on Friday, April 26th thru Sunday, April 28 ... for our annual Sheetiron Tune Up and birthday party ...

We'll be taking a group photo at 5 pm on Saturday in the Madrone Campground, and this Airstream should be there, starting Friday ...

There will be birthday cake for our mascot, AJ Murphy, who is in middle school, I guess, and is a good dirtbike and flat track racer ... We get together every year for AJ's birthday at Hollister, it is a fun time, and Clay, AJ's dad, says "no gifts!", so you all are invited, and would be very welcome ...

Mike, the Airstream guy, also plays the guitar around the campfire, which is fun ...

Also, we'll be showing MotoGP Austin at the clubhouse at 18th and Folsom starting at 4 pm on Sunday, April 21st ... I won't be there this Sunday, but motorcycle people and BAARCers and ADVers are welcome ... MotoGP at 6 pm ...

And we have weekly meetings at the clubhouse every Thursday ... I'll be there tonight ... everything a motorcyclist may wish to quaff at our fountain, KLR prices ... ha. Doors open around 7pm ...

OK, that's one way to keep my post count low ... double ha.

If you click on this pic, it will take you to more pics of a trip a few SFMCers did recently to Mercey Hot Springs, Clear Creek and Carrizo:
DSCN9899
A KLR, DR650 and KTM 690 ...

Hey, if you live in San Francisco, and are a motorcycle person, the SFMC is basically your club ... we've been around since 1904, and at 18th St and Folsom since 1947 ... we're always happy to see motorcycle people!

see you around the campfire,

SFMCJohn - That photo looks awesome! I was just down that way a couple of weeks ago, but nothing I rode on was as cool looking as the trail in that photo. Care to post tracks?
