Many of you know Steve Lingg organized the original Nebraska Annual Campout located near Republican City, Nebraska at the Harlan County Reservoir. When Steve passed way, too early in life from cancer, my wife Ellie and I took over as the Nebraska MGNOC reps. We had kept his campout going for several years but for many reasons had to shut down this event. Ever since we have been looking for a closer site to our home in Lincoln, Nebraska to get this event going again and have now found what we hope to be a new and better place to start up. This year we are hosting a new basic campout at the Indian Caves State Park here in eastern Nebraska to keep Steve's memory alive and have some fun. Indian Caves State Park is located in southeastern Nebraska on the banks of the Missouri River. Information on the park and its location can be found on the web at Nebraska Game and Parks or by calling 402-471-1414. Or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. This campout will be
bring your own everything type event. It will be located in the Tent Camping Only area. There are hot showers available in the campground and each camp site can accommodate two tents. Each site also has a fire pit and an electrical outlet. The cost will be $8 dollars per day and as I said will cover two tents. So if you want to you can split the cost with someone else. When you arrive at the park entrance you will rent your campsite by the night for the weekend. I will have a sign at the campground entrance to help you find us. When you roll into the campground you will see signs stating that no vehicles are allowed off the paved roadway and must park in the lots provided. This rule has been kindly waved for our group and you can ride on and park your bike in the grass next to your tents. Please do so respectfully and be mindful of not doing any damage to the area so we can keep this privilege in the future. Anyone coming in a car or truck must stay on the pavement. The park is in a fairly remote area but within easy riding distance of several small towns and also not too far from four larger cities with full facilities, Auburn and Falls City in Nebraska, Rockport and St. Joseph in Missouri. Just seven miles north of the park entrance road is the small town of Nemaha, Nebraska. Located there is a very well stocked little grocery store complete with a deli and they even do a breakfast buffet on Saturday mornings. You can get pretty much anything you need in the way of food except alcohol. The owners are Amish. Speaking of alcohol it is permitted in the park as long as you don't try to bring in any large amount such as kegs or cases. Gas up in one of the larger towns listed or on the Interstate in Rock Port before you head to the park. None of the small towns you see around the immediate park area have gas stations. They have bars but no gas! There are plenty of nice twisty roads to ride in the area on both sides of the river. Close by is a winery in Brownville, Nebraska. Unlike the old Republican City location there is plenty to go see and do and the park itself is a very beautiful hilly tree covered place to ride and hike. Hope to see you there!
Located on Highway 26, John Day, Oregon has lots of lodging, cafes, restaurants, gas stations and lots more. There will be demo rides, field games, bike show, self guided tours, and closing ceremony.
