Planning for Fall 2012 Rally
« on: July 03, 2012, 05:33:26 PM »
Soooo....where you all wanna stay this year? I kinda liked the accomodations at KOA last year (besides the torrential downpour), plus it's closer to the trails I'm familiar with.  8)

If you guys wanna try and stay in another area of the hills, I'm up for it. Just be aware that a lot of campgrounds are already closed that time of year or are unwilling to make deals with me.  :o

Is the KOA Palmer Gulch? Curious about the deals there (called up there to take the family and was floored by the rates). I am up for anywhere, but the campground at Deerfield treated us very well when I was there earlier this year with a group of (cough) ATV's. All kinds of trails in the area as well. My two cents.

Mystic Hills would probably be friendly to us as it looks like they cater to the ATV crowd, but that's not far from the FnF so its probably not the best choice.   

I was eyeing the southern hills map and the area between Summit Ridge and Bear Mnt sure look to be loaded with some kind of trails, but I have no idea of the quality.  Custer would be the nearest camping I'd guess.   PS - Alan thanks for starting this.. I was just thinking that its needs to get done!

I always laugh when I ride past this Custer campground. With a name like that, they must cater to dirt bikes, right?  ;D

I don't know anything about the campground, just get a chuckle out of the name.

Yup, that's Palmer Gulch. Last year we had $5/night/person for tenters and $20/night for RV sites...I was shocked that they would go that low considering their regular rates.

What are the proposed dates?

Ummm...check the top of the forum section Josh.  ;)

deerfield sounds good to me too.

Do any of you guys have an 'IN' at Deerfield? I could just give them a call, but I didn't know if anyone else is more familiar with the owners....this is the place you guys are talking about, right? http://mtmeadowsresort.com/

Pretty sure I called them last fall and they were already closed.

Yeti, the place sold last fall to the present owners.  I don't know them, but they will sure remember us.  We were there twice with about 20 riders coming in all at once.  I did mention we were talking about a rally there in Sept.  They were happy and excited to hear about a possible rally there.  I think I would just call them for rates and such.  LD

i'm bringing the kdx so i'd like to be close to trails.

also bringing the fam so will not be tenting.  rentable rv's or something with water and electricity would be a nice option if it's available where we stay. 

but don't change plans for me.  i can stay somewhere else if needed and get to where ever the DDSR group is at!

it is coming up fast.  whatever you decide yeti, works for me.


FWIW i liked staying at the koa but deerefield would be fun too!
