    Could ride over to Antelope Lake/Taylorsville for grins from there.

    That's some pretty country. Too bad all I had with me was a shitty camera.

    I grew up in the Chester area but moved before I got my drivers license. Then went into the Navy for over 20 years. Just moved back to the area and looking forward to do all sorts of backcountry stuff. Wish I still had my 950 though. But I really like my S10.



    Hope to see you there.

    What do you want to know?

    Camping areas that would work well for a group of us:deal
    Would you feel it's has the fun level we need for most bike types, GS, F800, 9xx, and smaller?

    Basically your general opinion for a weekend of riding, have a few:freaky, the camp NAzi's are kinda nice. Oh and we don't want to offend our RV neighbors....too mucj:evil

    Photos are always appreciated

    Ooh, I'm very interested in your newsletter. I could revisit the buckhorn back country byway. It's beautiful country up there.

    Here's what I found this morning.

    Camping:
    $23 to $25 per night. That's 2 vehicles and 6 people max. Having never camped there I don't know how strict they are about it.

    Campsites by number

    I believe this is campsite #20 in the photo.

    Fuel and food.

    There is a store at the lake within walking distance of the camp sites. The hours are limited and it was closed so I don't know what kind of selection there is. The building looked like a 20' construction job site office trailer.
    [​IMG]

    Greenville to Antelope lake is aprox 33 miles.
    There are two gas stations. A full grocery store and places to eat (the hours have changed quite a bit throughout the years).

    Quincy is the county seat and is aprox 44 miles away.
    There are much more choices and a cycle shop on the main drag.

    Janesville is closer (aprox 21 miles). It 95% dirt all the way to highway 395. I haven't taken that route in a few years. Last time I did, there was lots of cattle and slowed down our progress.

    Genesse Valley is aprox 16 miles away.
    Lat/Long 40N 02.570' 120W 45.287
    They have a sandwich shop (maybe more but it's been a while) that is open on the weekends.

    Store phone number
    Notice I didn't feel like writing anything down :D

    Taylorsville is aprox 23 miles away. They have a small general store, a post office, a salon (in case you need to get your hair done) and a bar. Yes that is all of downtown. Almost captured in this one pic.
