My tent site is booked. I asked for and received a rain free site.

Doc, I have been practicing my mountain riding here in flat SW Ontario. Don't expect to see any improvement :)
Paulie,
How much is a tent site? Are there different kinds of tent sites? Can I get one on the ground floor? Are there any that are handicap accessible? Can you park your bike at your tent? Do they have tents for rent?

Wow - a combination of thoughts all in one post. If only the rest of the forum was like that these days...

Darryl - Many answers you seek here: Camping & RV Sites | Ironhorse Motorcycle Lodge

I thought they charged me $20 per night this year and last year but the reservation says $30 per night for next year.

The only tent sites left are second floor sites but I am sure they will have a cancellation for the main floor sites.

All tent sites have handicap bike parking right next to your tent. This is more important for the second and third story tent sites.

It never rains in Carolina so you can actually go tentless....as long as you don't go commando. Them's the rulz

I just called IHML to make a reservation - they were down to only efficiency units and one deluxe private room left, which I grabbed. Staying May 2-6. Looking forward to another fun event! Btw, the IHML phone number given in the 1st post is incorrect - should be (828) 479-3864.

OMG!!!

Contacted the IHML and they said

"We are down to 3 efficiency units (private bathrooms), 8 bunkhouse beds, 8 electrical camp sites, & 3 RV sites."

The Event is 10 months Away!!

Consider calling to make a reservation & get a room. Even if you do not get the room you desire your name would be 1st on the IHML to move to the room of your preference once/ if it became available. Once, all the rooms are filled then, there would be a waiting list. Those with rooms that desire to switch are given the 1st option after a cancellation to change to their desired room BEFORE the IHML goes down the waiting list of those who have no room assignment. All room assignments are done through the IHML. You cannot cancel your reservation & give your room to someone else. You can switch rooms with someone else if both party's are amenable but, only AFTER the approval of the IHML owners. For any additional questions or clarifications please call the IHML at 828.479.3864. Best,

As of this past weekend they only have one (1) efficiency unit, a bunk house bed or two and tent camping is still available.

Like Doc said, you can always put your name on the list for whichever room type you are looking for.
