Hot showers and convince store/gas station and Micro brew/restaurant w/in walking distance. If we did do Davis, we'd have to do a Blackwater 100 redo.

Blackwater?????? IN

The Restrite campground hosted alot of the Factory race teams during the golden years of Blackwater 100. I'm not suggesting the Restrite, just mumbling out loud. Davis would be a great location though.

Here's another spot...

Was too close to Laural Springs but with RDV moving west it should not conflict.

Sparta NC. Alleghany Inn

http://www.trails.com/master-hosts-a...el-111376.html

again there is camping about a mile North

How about? http://www.senecalodge.com/

I am in the area every Labor Day.

Have always loved the area, setting.

State Park is right up the road for campers



Knock it around a bit
I love the Watkins Glen area. Lots of touristy things to do but IMHO the riding in the area is more cruiser oriented. Mostly scenic rides around the Finger Lakes. Gentle sweepers is all you get. No technical roads that I have been able to find without riding 60+ miles to the south towards Galeton of all places. Plus with no camping on site, it will segregate the campers from the motelers, not ideal for our group.

I know it is tough to find both bed and tent space at the same venue, which is why we keep coming back to Marlinton and Galeton.

As always, I will do my best to attend where ever it is held.

No shortage of great roads in the area.
