Anybody know about decent camping options in the greater Reno area? Don't mind hoteling it but prefer the outdoors of a roaring fire and tent in the forest

This would be pretty close to Boomtown, the ride host-site, and the Sat. loop will probably start by riding right past your tent.

Another site on the same area.

Also,

Just received this from the event organizers.

News includes
  1. Expanded pit area, with dry camping right at the event near casino entrance. Plenty of room
  2. Air race unlimited course may be moved and require the area that we planned to eat lunch at so I put together a backup plan. If that happens, we are planning the best seats in the valley again.
  3. ADVENTURE loop still has 50 slots open.
So dry camping is available AT the event.

Brent

Two adults, fri and sat night, $69 each night in the South tower and $89 in the North tower. Apparently the North tower is newer. I like how they call them towers. I think the place is only 3 stories tall!

Thinking of heading up there for this...

Looking online, it says that rooms for those days are $169... Is there a discount code if you are participating in the event?

If those are the going rates, sleeping on the ground it is

There are a lot of hotels in the area.
Boomtown is about 4 miles from downtown Reno

Just tell them you are with the ride and you'll get the rates I quoted.

IIRC the dualsport loops are ~100mi each day, and they have hard & easy. Gary (organizer) said a KLR650 dirt rider with 1yr experience should be able to complete the easy loops. I also understand they have lots of bail-out options on all the routes, so if folks are running late/tired/wounded bike etc. it is easy to bail and get back to the hotel.

Looking forward to this ride...just gotta get healthy (sciatica flaring up )...also hope this heatwave starting up has waned by next weekend
