This year the ride will be stationary, at Byrds Adventure Center, and start and finish at the same location each day. Through the years, we have moved to a different location each day, but this year we will set up camp only once! You will have your truck, gear, and camping stuff with you each evening.

Dinner at 6:30 each evening and is catered. I will post the menu just before the ride. There is a shower house on site. The campsite fee is included in your donation to TCWR, but feel free to drop a donation in the jar. If you need electric and other amenities email me at scott@turpentinecreek.org. This is on a first come, first serve basis. There are only 18 sites with electric for us. Tent camping is unlimited. Gas is less than five miles away at Turner Bend.
