What’s up Wolf Pack! We’re almost there and can’t wait to party down and shred some trails with all our new friends. Below you’ll find some useful information about the event, trails and some suggestions on what to pack.
Horse Creek Lodge Campground
Address: 56228 Delta Dr, McKenzie Bridge, OR 97413
Phone: (541) 822-3243
We’ll be camping on the property owned by Horse Creek Lodge. They’ve got a pumptrack on the premises so if you’ve got a hardtail, bring it along too!
What can you expect at the campground?
Power? Yes, in some areas. We don’t have a bunch of RV hookups or anything, but there’s power at the bathroom building in the main camp area.
Running water for bathing? Yes, we have 4 outdoor showers throughout the property – people should plan on bringing their own towels, toiletries, etc.
Parking close to campsites or walk in? Both. The property is not enormous, so even if you have to walk some, it won’t be far. It all depends on how many of you carpool and the number/size of vehicles that arrive. We’ll do our best.
Wifi or cell phone service? We have wifi, and Verizon is the only cell service we really get at all on the property.
Fires? Heck yeah!
Food? We are scrambling to try and find a food truck after our original provider cancelled on us last week. You are free to camp-cook at your camp site and there is a small restaurant pedaling distance (about an 8-minute ride) away. It is dark, so bring lights. There is a very small town nearby (5-10-minute drive) if you want to drive over and eat there as well.
We will continue trying to find a food truck last minute as well, but please be prepared.
When? Shuttles will start rolling out Saturday, June 2 after everyone gets checked in, lives are signed away and vans are loaded! We suggest you arrive anytime after 630am. If you arrive Friday night we will be there setting up tents/demos and booths but will do our best to get you parked and checked in Friday night.

WHAT TO EXPECT
We’re hoping to send you guys home (in one piece) with the biggest smiles possible. By having a casual, non-racing type weekend festival vibe we want people to leave their egos at home and show up ready to make new friends and memories. The trails are going to be in good condition and we will have a few options depending on what you’re looking for. We’ll have a few shuttle vehicles running circles taking van loads of people to different trails throughout the day. Ride until dark, or have a beer between each lap, it’s up to you!
Documentation – We’re going to have Trevor Lyden out on the trail shooting photos and Sports Doug Jambor hidden in the bushes working on an epic video that we’ll share with all of you after the event is done. This way you can show your friends how cool you look high-fiving R-Dog while Tyler McCaul sprays roost in your face.
Arrival Process – When you arrive on Saturday we’ll have you line up at our bitchin new pop up tent sign our liability waiver, yes, we had to get a lawyer involved. Sucks, we know. After you sign in we’re going to hand over a really cool Loam Wolf tote bag with some memorabilia and a wrist band that is your golden ticket for the weekend. Nobody will be allowed on a shuttle, given beer or allowed to even look at us without that wristband. So don’t lose it.
On the Trail – We’ll be dropping groups of riders off at various trails around the McKenzie Bridge area and you’ll be able to cruise down at your leisure. We do ask you remain mindful of other riders around you. It’s not a race, so cruise at your pace, but realize some people’s pace may be quicker or slower than yours. That means, don’t park your bike or yourself in the middle of the trail to take a selfie. It also means you shouldn’t tailgate a newer rider and yell at them to get out of your way. Let’s stay safe and cool out there. We’re all here to have fun.
Please read this waiver now and familiarize yourself with it. If you’d like to speed up your check-in process to get on the shuttles quicker, please sign and print out a copy at home and we’ll collect it at the venue.
