BBQ and Camping

Camping and lodging for the race weekend is on your own... The cabin at the put-in and the adjacent field that is normally used is not available this year for use. The BBQ and libations will be at the top of the take-out road, shuttle will be provided back to the put-in immediately following the race.

For the BBQ provided by Next Adventure, we have talked with the local land owner (the mechanics shop at the top of the take-out road) and we will be doing the BBQ at the top of the take out road, just on the downhill side of the gate. Parking will be on one side of the take out road and continuing down towards the take-out.

The nearest campgrounds are Panther Creek, which is between the put-in and the take-out, or Beaver Campground, approximately 5 miles north of the put-in. Both these campsites are National Forest campgrounds and are free to camp at, however, there was about 6 inches of snow on the ground this past weekend. The gates are closed but I contacted the Forest Service and it is legal to camp at these sites as long as the gates aren't blocked. In Stevenson, the Roadside Inn is the cheapest as far as rates go. A shuttle after the BBQ and drinking can be provided as far as Stevenson.
