Join Giant Loop for our third annual Volcano Camp, September 6-8, 2019! RESERVE YOUR TICKET TODAY WITH A REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT OF $50. Use an email address you check – this is how we send important information and reminders. Cancellation deadline for refund is August 31, 2019. Check this page for updates.
Includes meals, beverages, camping and unlimited laughs and tall tales with new and old riding friends. All riders and bike types welcome: Trail, dirt, sport, dual sport, scrambler, V-twin, adventure touring – there’s world class road riding and OHV trails a short distance from camp! We will have some maps and suggestions for riding, but nothing organized – there is world-class scenery, dirt, gravel and wonderful pavement for day rides in every direction, as well as getting there and leaving.
Paulina Creek flows out of the Newberry National Volcanic Monument, just up the road from the Ogden Group camp, approximately 40 miles southwest of the GL ADV Shop in Bend, Oregon.
Here’s a link to the campground description: OGDEN GROUP CAMP
Come ride and explore this beautiful area, then return to Volcano Camp to enjoy dinner, beverages and campfire with friends on Saturday, and breakfast and a tank bag lunch on Sunday!
Camp, swim, float and play in Paulina Creek, Paulina Lake or East Lake. Ride and explore as much or as little as you choose.
This is an informal campout. Ride. Hang. Enjoy the last hurrah of the riding season!
Be prepared and be self-sufficient. This is not a guided trip. And, we will have fabulous prizes and awards!
HOW TO FIND OGDEN GROUP CAMP
GPS Info. (Latitude, Longitude):
DIRECTIONS: From Bend, drive south on Highway 97 for 22 miles. Head east on Road 21 toward Newberry National Volcanic Monument (Paulina Lake) for 3 miles. Ogden Group is on the left. We will have a sign at the turn, which is VERY well marked (see photo above).
PRO TIP: NAVIGATION
Download the FREE Avenza Maps application for your smart phone. With Avenza installed, download East Fork Rock OHV Trail System map (free), Deschutes National Forest Motor Vehicle Use Map 4 (free) and Oregon Atlas Landscape Bundle (paid purchase in Avenza store – this is the Benchmark map). Mount smart phone on handle bars in rugged case (e.g. Lifeproof), mount USB charger and your smart phone is a fully functional nativigational device, no cell service required!
PARKING + CAMPING
We have acres of room to ourselves, so trucks, trailers and RVs are no problem. A designated Quiet Camping tent zone is on the end nearest Paulina Peak. The center will be our meals and campfire zone.
