Ok...anyone interested in camping this Spring (May 18-20) at Breaks Intersate Park?
Here's a link http://www.breakspark.com/ looks like camping starts at $15 a night...they do have cabins for the pussies :lol:

I have not been to this area yet, but would imagine that there might be a few good roads to ride. ;) Maybe some of the local folk can verify.

Being from Canada I can verify that Breaks Interstate Park area is an excellent riding area. I was there last October for a few days. The only negative is no alcohol in the park restaurant, and your other eating choices are far away.

Hell yeah I am intersted! Could be the warm up trip for our cross country trek. Good shakedown for the trailer and new suspension. (Yet to be done)

No fancy signature line. Too many meets to try and keep up with the icons.

Sounds like this campin thang is a go-go. Should we be reserving our sites individually or as a group? It would be nice if our sites were in the same neighborhood. Anybody know the best way to do this? Also as I looked at the tent-only sites, it didnt look like they had that many but Im not sure. I would think that a place that big would have a lot of tent sites.

EDIT: This Breaks Camping Meet is going to be a riot...whoever attends will have a great time. If I hear good things about it from this gathering...who knows, maybe two years in a row at Breaks!

Bryan,
I does look like they only have 9 tents sites @ $15 a night, (1) tent per site (that kinda sucks). I will try to contact someone at the park to find out if I can get a block of campsites, or if we're gonna be on our own. I have an e-mail to them, but have not heard back yet. They do have a Group Camp Ground that will accomodate 90 people, for $122 a night. That might be the way to go...if I get enough interest

Yah the group site route seems like the way to go. If you could get 7 people who would definatly go it would still be 15 bucks a night. If you can get 6 I'll be #7.

Yeah, I would need some money up front to reserve the group site...I think we could bring the price down to $10 an night pretty easily...come on people who's in?

I bet you guys will get a lot more than 10 people...I would guess 30-40 minimum. That Breaks is an awesome place...visited it on the way to EOM...scouting it out.

Joe, keep track of who is interested in the first post and watch that list grow!! :clapping:
