Campsite Info


Outdoor camping (included in the registration fee) during the Mountain Ride is available along the banks of the Valley River.  Camping is for all participants who want to bring their tent for the weekend.  Enjoy a peaceful nights sleep under the stars and surrounded by the beautiful western North Carolina mountains.  

The outdoor camping area, located at Konehete Park, is just a short walk or greenway bike ride (on the Murphy River Walk) from downtown Murphy.  Reservations are not needed to utilize the outdoor camping option. 

Portable bathrooms will be provided at the camping areas throughout the weekend.
