Lodging

We reserve several camping spots closest to the start/finish area. Each spot can fit several tents (maximum number of 8 people per site), so you can pick your space on a first-come-first-serve basis. Your reservation fee covers you for both Friday and Saturday. You provide the tent! There is a single shower head at the main park entrance where you can go rinse off, or there is always the option to bathe in Lake Travis post-race! Bring a bathing suit and towel but leave the soap and shampoo at home (unless it is biodegradable).

When the weather is nice, we will host an outdoor movie the Friday and Saturday night before each race. It typically starts around 8/8:30 pm and runs about one hour. It's typically a collection of short adventure films and kid friendly. We typically serve Cornucopia popcorn, as well!  Bring a chair or blanket!

Closest hotels are about 15-20 minutes away in Bee Cave.
