You set up camp wherever you can find a semi flat spot...grin, the road is paved till you get to the entrance, then turns to dirt, kinda fun when it gets wet on a bike !!!

The most desirable location is grass between the cafeteria building and the ocean edge of the cliff...

The only problem is there will be many many tents set up there. I opted to set up in the trees closer to the bunkhouse buildings. Quieter and more privacy. Another advantage (??) was the fog/dew was so thick that it "rained" off the trees onto my tent. I slept like a baby !

This is a great event.. have fun !

Its paved tru town and then a dirt driveway you could call it. Couple hundred yards if that. Hard graded dirt any vehicle could go on.

The camping is basically wherever theres a spot for your tent. Mostly around the main building.

Thanks people! Looks like I'll be ok to take the big sport tourer rather than the little dual sporter. Much smoother whilst slabbing.

Heading out Friday mid morning from the bay area/Peninsula if the fog these mornings is lighter will hop over 84 and down the coast the whole way, if super foggy that is going to be much less fun and will go via 25/198/parkfield and over 46 to old creek road and down into cambria.
Wave if ya pass me

Nice man. Good rider.

Treat him well...he likes BEER with his food
The event was great, even the fog stayed away 'til Sunday Morning. Didn't see this thread before I left, but happened to camp next to Hans. Was also a young Swiss couple, Markus and Karin there, seeing the sights in the Southwest before headin' south of the border for the New Year. All three great folks!

Yes. Hans used my service to buy and register and stayed with us for a week. Very nice fella and extremely capable mechanic and rider.

Enjoyed Hans' company around the fire pit in the evenings. Fine man.

Never thought to ask if he was an inmate. Safe journey, Hans!

I haven't seen his posts, but he has emailed me a couple of times. He's in San Francisco right now at the Lombard Motor Inn. I sent him his bike Title. He is there until at least Friday waiting for a bigger windshield.
