Franklin Land Trust - Conserving Farms, Fields & Forests Since 1987 Donate


Camping is available to all riders. There is a very nominal $30 charge, per vehicle, which covers one campsite from Friday at 2pm through Sunday at noon. Two nights of fun! The sites are rustic at best, no running water or electricity, however they are adjacent to the start of the ride, breakfast, dinner and beer!

This year, camping will be broken into a number of different fields.  If you are planning to camp together with friends, please try to arrive around the same time to be placed together. We will do our best to accommodate groups, however, can not make any guarantees. 

We provide a van for campers (and all riders) to a hot shower within a couple of miles from the site. The van will run from 2pm - 8pm on Saturday. Camping is also adjacent to a wonderful swimming hole in the Deerfield River. There are port-a-pots throughout the site.

We will have People's Pint beer as well as a number of food vendors on site Friday evening. There will also be the traditional bonfire as well as music for entertainment. Watch our FB page for further details.

Families are welcome and we have a list of local activities and events available for non-riders.

Well-behaved, leashed, family pets are also allowed however pets may not be left unattended on ride day.
