The Area/Camping


Camping fees are included with race registration for Friday and Saturday nights on a first-come-first serve basis.  The campground has limited space – please limit one vehicle per racer.  Solo riders will be given priority for lower camp sites along the race route (2,3,&4 plus the overflow parking lot).  Be prepared to make friends – campsites will be shared! All RV’s and trailers will be parked along the south side of the main entrance road just southeast of the race course (see image below).    Campsite check-In will be available beginning at 10:00am on Friday, October 12th.  Below is a map of the camping area, and maps will also be available upon check-in.  Visit the BLM Penitente Canoyon Campground website for more details regarding sites and facilities.

The Penitente Canyon campground does not have any water options; we suggest bringing plenty of H2O to cover your water needs (drinking, cooking, and cleaning) for the weekend. 

Bringing small children along?  Please let our camping coordinators know when you arrive.  We have a designated area for family camping.
