We will have maps for each route at the merch booth. They are FREE so grab a few and enjoy these scenic routes. Need gas before you head out? No problem, our exit for camp has a gas station.

None of these suit your fancy? You are on  your own :) There are thousands of watering holes, cool towns, river access spots etc. Simply give the area a google and plan your own adventure. For those of you who party too hard and feel like human trash on Sat, we have river access at camp that you can easily access. Everyone is more than welcome to chill on site during the day but you'll be on your own for lunch as the site turns into a ghost town while everyone is out enjoying the routes. 

An overview from last year. Ignore the date, we simply wanted to show you what each route looks like from camp.

Rules and Regs | Trust Us, It's Nothing Too Strict

We know, rules can suck but these aren't that bad, we promise. 

HAVE FUN! We hope you are coming out to ride motorcycles, party a little (or a lot), and make some lasting memories with ya best buds, or new buds. We've been working our asses off to provide a rad atmosphere where you don't have to worry about a thing. We got food, drinks, bathrooms, showers, beautiful camping areas, and a river right next to camp! Enjoy it! This weekend is for you. 

MUST HAVE ID: We check IDs at the gate to ensure everyone is 21+ and it's needed to to pick up your tickets. ID must match the name on our list as no paper tickets will be acknowledged due to us allowing people to transfer tickets. If you bought multiple tickets under your name, no problem! We simply hand you the wristbands under your name to distribute as you see fit. 

BE RESPECTFUL TO THE STAFF, SECURITY, EVENT CREW, AND EACH OTHER: Self-explanatory :) We are here to make this event awesome for everyone :) Don't give anyone a hard time or ask for special treatment. We didn’t have to give anyone the boot last year and want to keep it that way this year.

NO FIRES OR CHARCOAL: Ahhh the highly flammable Sierras! The site owners ban all fires and charcoal when events are taking place. We've got designated burn barrels in the main area and our food truck offers amazing campfire treat options (they are award winning actually).

SLOW DOWN: Try to resist the urge of blasting through the campground on your way back to our space. There’s tons of families enjoying the campground as well who are not part of the event. The last thing we want is anyone laying it down or getting in an accident trying to avoid a loose labrador or kids playing catch in the road.

ADDITIONAL SUPPLIES: There is a camp store at the entrance that sells beer, snacks, fishing tackle, sunscreen, bug spray, etc. The town of Trucker is also a fun 20 min rip away as well and there is also a gas station right off the exit to the venue.

FREE WATER: There are dozens of spigots around the venue that tap right into the natural spring water beneath the campground. If you have a reusable water bottle, we highly suggest bringing it so you can enjoy nature’s cure for your hangover.

CLEAN UP AFTER YOURSELF: We are providing a ton of trash bags so each attendee can bag up their trash and help us get it to the dumpster. This simple act is HUGE and is very appreciated. Thank you for helping us keep the area clean and preserved. When you leave Sunday, it should look like no one was there. 

NO GLASS: Feel free to bring your own adult beverages. but no glass please. All liquors need to be in a plastic bottle or a flask. There is also a cash bar on site that mixes up some crazy good drinks, has wine, can beer, and more. It's ran by a charity so your questionable drinking habits are a good thing during the weekend. 

GET COZY: There are no assigned special spots but you will be able to pick your spot when you arrive. Make sure to make friends with you neighbors as this is a true moto campout and no one has a private 5 acre field to themselves :) 

NO CARS PERMITTED IN THE MOTORCYCLE CAMPING SECTION / NO MOTORCYCLES IN THE CAR PARKING SECTION: This is for attendee safety and enforced by the property owners and security. Also, we don't want to jam up our beautiful event space with your Kia Soul. If you have a chase bringing your camping supplies, rethink what you truly need as you will have to sherpa all of your junk 200-400 yards depending on where your moto riding buds set up camp. We value all attendees, but cater mainly to the people riding up.

STREET LEGAL MOTOS ONLY: No mini bikes or off-road bikes are permitted into the event.  

NO TICKET NO ENTRY: Please don't show up without a ticket. You will be bummed when we have to turn you away. 

NO COLORS: Due to our agreements with the campground, we can not allow anyone wearing club colors into the venue. 

NO PETS: Service dogs are A-OK! But sadly we can't have loose angels roaming around. There are ground rattlers in the area so please be on the lookout as we are in their home. 

WHEN DOES THE EVENT OPEN? Like last year, the event technically opens at noon on Friday, August 5th. However, if we are set and have the campground owner’s blessing, we’ll try to start allowing people in slightly earlier. No promises!

Everyday Outlaw is Coming to the Sierra Stake Out 2

You want Outlaw Country? You got it. We searched far and wide and found one of the best bands right in the heart of Truckee CA. Everyday Outlaw is a North Tahoe based Outlaw Country band that has a traditional Honky Tonk Country line up of acoustic guitar, telecaster, pedal steel, bass and drums, topped of with haunting vocals and a heavy dose of attitude. They've been nominated for a Forte Award in 2017 for Best Country Band in Reno/Tahoe. 

The Band: The driving drums of Rory Koff (formerly of No Use for A Name) are complemented by Mark Henasey's intuitive bass lines. Jake Zender's booming baritone vocals are complemented by Morgan Hargrave's well placed lead lines intertwined with Jim Park's superb work on the Pedal Steel Guitar.

Sierra Stake Out Welcomes Back 805 Beer

We've been good buds with 805 Beer for a few years now, heck we even have family that works for em'. This year they are back with more free beer and ready to serve you up with a refreshing beverage after a day of riding the Sierras. Each night will have beer set aside to serve until they run out so make sure to stop by their booth and grab a few ice cold ones on the house.

The Beer: A light, refreshing blonde ale created for the laid back California lifestyle. Subtle malt sweetness is balanced by a touch of hops creating a versatile beer with a clean finish. 4.7% ABV and available wherever beer is sold and if they don't have it, demand it. 

Follow @805beer on the gram to stay connected

Can I bring my own food?

Sure but sadly no coal or fires are allowed due to the high fire dangers so we strongly suggest eating from the truck (plus you are supporting local business). Small camp stoves are permitted. 

Any vegetarian options / gluten free?

The menu is the menu but if you are worried, contact them directly and they'd be happy to answer your questions. If you have special needs, please plan ahead as many restaurants are close by and there is a camp store at the entrance of Cisco Grove for quick snacks etc.
