    Camped with Festus and Jeanine this past weekend. Great spot, clean facility, awesome hosts! Festus even arranged for some hidden gem riding, roads we would never have found on our own. Very welcoming owners, could not have been happier withe the experience.

    Thanks so much for the kudos John. Glad we were able to show you and the rest of the crew some of our secret twisties. We had a great time riding, and also having drinks and tellin lies.

    Festus and Janine were amazing hosts this past weekend. Not only was their campground close to some world class riding, the fully equipped shop saved the day with a leaky back tire. The site is lovely, right under the mountains. If you need a great place to stay, and incredible riding nearby you have to check this place out. A total success for us. The local food was amazing as well. Grocery store nearby if you need food.

    Completely agree with this. My trip was shorter than expected but the stay was fantastic. Really great place to stay with the nicest people you will ever meet. The food worked out really well and the riding was excellent. I was given a few places to hit on my ride out and it made my day.

    I was spoiled as I was the only rider there during my one night stay. Had the best spot to camp, baths and shower to myself, and the dogs to make me feel at home. I know I'll be back when time permits.

    Thanks xit109, we enjoyed having you here. Come back as soon as you can, there are a lot of "secret" roads left to be explored.

    Thanks for the great review, Mark, Janine, Axel, Maya, and Hector.

    Last night I had the opportunity to meet Mark, Janine, Axel, Maya, and Hector. I was welcomed and made to feel at home immediately upon arrival, it was a pleasure exchanging stories with them over dinner and wine well into the evening, and their breakfast and route recommendations made for an excellent start to the day. Look forward to next time!

    Great to hear from some Carolina folks, looking forward to meeting y'all. It is beautiful here this week, clear, mid 70s, and breezy. 10 day forecast looks awesome, putting up hay this week:clap

    Not sure what the requirements are. There are a few small trees. Here are some pix. The two trees on the left are 15' apart, and the two on the right are 17' apart. We can weed-eat the area as necessary. There is also a fairly large single tree near the garage.

    Helmet garden at Mountain View Moto Campground, Janine's handiwork. Sam from PA donated and shipped the Arai.
