Camp: Live Oak Camp is a beautiful wide open campground dotted with oak trees. In the main zone is big open-air pavilion and gathering area. There is not a bad camp spot in the whole place and no matter where you set up your tent you will only be a short walk from the pavilion. Motorcycle camping is separate from car camping and no cars may enter the motorcycle zone for any reason (not even for a second) but motos can park / camp with the cars RVS
Water: The water on site it’s safe to drink but it has a taste to it that some may not prefer. Make sure to bring your own or buy some from the food trucks. STAY HYDRATED! Remember that riding can dehydrate you a lot more so drink plenty of water.
Trees: YAY Trees! Please do not park your car/RV under the tree canopy. (bikes & tents ok) These oaks have a sensitive root system which means nothing can hang from them (so no hammocks) & parking a vehicle on top of the system can damage the roots.
Showers: There are showers on site but please note they are open concept so no privacy. If you have any issues, do not use them or bring a swim suit if you are more modest….or go for it if you are not modest in the least. Rest assured, no one is there to stare or judge but to each their own comfort level.
Weather: Temperatures can be H O T during the day / cold at night. Please check the weather before you come & pack accordingly.
Cell Phone Service: We have not heard of any network that doesn’t work out there. you should be good.
Staff: We have security, sanitation, and a medics working this event who are men. This crew is so very important to us and have gone out of there way to ensure this event is amazing for YOU so please be respectful and toss a “thank you” at them if you feel inclined.
Emergency Assistance: We have a team working 24/7 in case you have an emergency or need assistance. Please go to the medic booth (open 24/7) or ask a security guard (also working 24/7) for help. NO one should EVER feel scared to ask for assistance if anyone is being disruptive.
No smoking, no fires, not flames of any kind in the camp. If you want to use a propane mini stove you can do so under the pavilion only. FOR REAL THIS IS CALIFORNIA IN SEPTEMBER. FIRE FINE FROM SBFD $1,000 TO ANY GUEST WHO STARTS A FIRE. PERIOD.

Should I buy a ticket if I am considered high risk / have health concerns, unsure if I will feel comfortable camping in the dirt, porto potties are just a NO, unable to follow the rules and regs of the campground, require more than general admission states, special assistance, etc.? If you have any concern or doubt whether about your willingness/ability to camp, ride, and go with the flow we suggest finding something else that suits your needs. There is nothing wrong with admitting that “this just isn’t for me” and we have way more respect to those who can realize that about themselves prior. We love you all just the same and thank you for doing a self “check” prior to moving forward with buying a ticket to this event. We created a small quiz that may help you decide if you are unsure.
- Do you like camping?
- Do you like riding motorcycles?
- Do you like meeting new people?
- Do you like trying new things?
- Are you adventurous?
- Are you resourceful and good with directions?
- Do you consider yourself a “do it yourself” type of person?
- Are you the type of person that takes the time to read all the info about things before you sign up for them?
If “YES” to all the above, you'll have a GREAT time!
If “NO” to one or more above, then you'll have the worst time of your life. Are we being dramatic? No, just blunt & honest with you on what this is. If you are the type of person that is easily disappointed, or feels inclined to speak to the manager, feels unsafe if workers or park staff are male, offended by how we describe this event, this is NOT the event for you and we respect that :)
Do passengers also need a general admission ticket? YES! Every body that is entering the property must have a general admission ticket (see above what that includes). If you are bringing a car or truck, you need to ALSO buy a parking pass in advance.
Can I get a refund? No, sadly we rented out the space and have to pay for it no matter what. Rest assured if the event does get cancelled for acts of God that prevent us from camping at the location, we will refund ticket holders.
Are there fire restrictions? YES! Since we are in CA, there is a very strict NO BURNING rule and the park rangers can fine you up to $1,000 if they catch anyone putting the park at risk so please be aware, no fires, no coals, no flames! Small camp stoves like a jetboil are ok!
Can I come the night before? Stay an extra night? Sadly, no. The gates to this private site will be locked until we open Fri and everyone must be out of the site by 11AM Sunday so we can lock up behind you. Google the area to see other camping options or hotels nearby if you are looking for an extended stay, there are some fantastic choices!
Can I transfer my ticket to another rider? How does it work? That option ended 9/11 @ noon : (
RV's, Trailers, or Toyhaulers - remember, this is dry camping with 0 access to power or water. Generator hours are 8AM-10PM.
Can I buy and admission ticket at the gate? No, you must buy a ticket prior to the event online. There are no tickets sold at the gate & this event will sell out. If you need a car pass once you arrives, you can purchase one with cash.
I am only coming for 1 night; do I get a discount? What if I am staying somewhere else? Can I come and go? All tickets are for the full weekend and it doesn’t matter if you come to the space for even 5 minutes, you need a full price general admission to enter the gates. There are other camping options and hotels nearby if that suites you best, give the area a google and see what's open / available. If staying elsewhere you can come and go but please be aware there is NO DRINKING AND RIDING! A ranger will be parked at the gate and they are legally able to stop you leaving the property to check. Please be safe!
Do I get a specific camping spot assigned to me? No spots are pre-assigned but you are guaranteed a space. The camp area is first come, first serve. There is plenty of amazing spots for everyone!
ADA info? We are more than happy to help you, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance prior to event.
What is up with food and water? We have some great options! But it’s a smaller scale weekend so limited or picky eaters beware and do not rely on food vendor to fit any special needs. There is no "group kitchen" or fires to make your own meals so be prepared to DIY with limitations. Feel free to strap a cooler on the back of that moto with food, water, beers, box wine, non-alcoholic drinks etc.! We only ask NO GLASS!!!!
I want to shoot, take video, do a social media takeover for this event for a brand, magazine, online editorial, etc. Do I need permission? We’d love to hear more!
