Coastal Ride Campsite Information
Outdoor camping (included in the registration fee) will be available for all participants who want to sleep in a tent for the weekend. We'll be camping along the waterfront on South Avenue in Oriental. This will not be your ordinary campsite as local residents will be allowing us to set up camp in their yards. All of this to provide you with a unique experience and for that great view of the water right from inside your tent.
In addition, its close proximity to downtown and the many local restaurants and shops makes our designated camping areas ideal locations for the event. Most everything is within walking distance so plan to park your car and hang out! Reservations are not needed to utilize the outdoor camping option.
Portable bathrooms will be provided at the camping areas throughout the weekend and depending on the location, there may be some permanent indoor bathroom facilities available. Shower trucks will also be available during the weekend to offer participants a good hot shower each night and morning. The shower trucks all come with sinks and individual shower stalls and changing rooms.
Indoor camping (included in the registration fee) is available if you choose to sleep indoors for the weekend. Indoor camping typically consists of laying a sleeping bag and mattress/pad on the floor of an open room/gym. When possible, indoor camping is located at or near the outdoor camping area(s). In some cases, the indoor camping area may be up to 1 mile away from the main outdoor camping location. Indoor camping is first come first served and space may be limited. Depending on the indoor camping facility, there may be bathrooms and showers available. The shower trucks will only be available at the outdoor camping area.
