What I didn't like about the last two years, (No offense to anyone) was that there wasn't a central area to 'hang out'. No main pavilion, parking lot, Bonn fire, etc. You needed a phone book and a map to find anyone. Finding people is why I go to rallies. I can ride by myself at home.

I'm not saying have it in the same place twice, but The Ox Yoke was an ideal setup.

The things needed are:
Hotel rooms
Camping
Good roads

Anything else is frosting.


With ya on the central area theme. Its a must to have a pavillion at least as a central hang location


Being spread out over 140 acres just ain't the right thing.

This is just a suggestion that popped into my head, so take it FWIW. In 2003, I spent 6 and 1/2 months hiking the AT from GA>Maine. One thing I noticed in my travels was the many hostels and small towns that were set up for accommodating a few hundred people. I see that many of your suggestions are near the Appalachain region, and having hiked and ridden the Appalachian Mtns quite extensively, I feel pretty good that it offers what everyone is looking for.

Over the next few weeks, I'll look through my journal and pictures to see if any of these places would me worth mentioning. On my hike, I spent a few nights in the hostels. A few are set up in way that I believe is just what you are looking for. Obviously, the biggest thing will be finding a place where the we would be welcomed.

I will say that some of those places get just as rowdy as you like, which is fine as long as you do your small part afterwards. Some of them let me stay free of charge as long as I spent the next day (or half day) helping out there. You could just pay and be on your way, but it was often an option.

The reason that I mention this is because I've seen many common traits among this place/people that I've seen on the trail. The objectives(adventure, outdoors, fun, friends, getting dirty, etc) of the two are basically the same. It's just the means(motorcycle vs foot) that are different.

Where ever it is in 2010, I'll be there and will gladly help in any way I can. I would offer to host it on my property in extreme N GA, but I only have an old 5th wheel set up until I get my cabin finished, but it's got everything else.

The folks there were very nice when I spoke with them. They were very happy that we were interested in having the event there. IIRC there was availability issues that put it too close to the ER. It may be a good idea to contact them early.

+1 That is what we should be looking for. and that'll stop the bitching (or we start a whiney bitch black ball list )

Boyer Station, WV was damn good too

The above is exactly why I suggest we go back there, or to Hunt's Lodge, plus the fact that the owners are riders, and that little detail makes more difference than anything else.

damn right.

I took a glace at Station's Inn's website in NC. They cater to bikers. Owners ride; on sight hotel, restaurant and bar. I've stopped there a couple of times, great place. but no camping. oh well.

Yokums over at Senaca Rocks is spred out I guess we're looking at the same places all over again


I just checked out bikercamps.com and didn't see anything worth mentioning. Most of it's stuff is state parks.

if you are looking at Hunt's Lodge, why not check out http://www.blueridgemotorcyclecamp.com/ over in Cruso, NC .

my thing about that area is the many times we've been close and have ridden the roads. I'd like to go some place new and ride new roads But if push comes to shove, Galeton was the perfect fit for our needs. I didn't have the time to go to some places I wanted to see

Sadly, I second this assessment. This place doesn't seem to be the same since changing hands a couple years ago.

I will accept yours and Rick's assessment on the place.

I stayed there a couple of years back but was with a small group mid week.
We were a quiet group early in the season.




There is a small campground just outside of Boone, rt 321 I think, just can't find the name. *shuffle shuffle*





Has to be a campground off of Rt 58 in Virginny. Passing that way next week I will take notes for a change.
