If you would like to camp, you have two options:
1. stay at one of the sites we have booked near the start finish for $25/weekend : Reserve that campsite HERE.
2. book your own campsite through the LCRA, away from the start/finish for $25/night : Reserve that campsite @ https://lcraparks.reserveamerica.com/
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. If you book through us, your reservation fee covers you for both Friday and Saturday. You provide the tent! If you book your own site through LCRA, you'll have a spot to yourself, away from the race. 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,
When the weather is nice, we will host an outdoor movie on Friday night. It typically starts around 8/8:30 pm and runs about one hour. It's usually a collection of short adventure films and kid friendly. Bring a chair or blanket!
Closest hotels are about 15-20 minutes away in Bee Cave.
