    RockSTOC 4

    RockSTOC IV
    Thursday, June 21st - Sunday, June 24th, 2018



    ----> RSVP <----

    Ash (aka smash) and Karla have done a great job organizing one of the best events in the ST-Owners calendar for the last three years. In 2018 they will be busy with some other priorities, so Arizona Jim and I have volunteered to organize this event.

    We hope that you will either return or come for the first time for this great event at the mouth of the Million Dollar Highway!!


    Location Information:

    • Ouray KOA
    • N38.081032, W107.704329
    • http://koa.com/campgrounds/ouray/
    • 2018 rates: $37.76/night based on dual occupancy (2 tents). $5 per person per night for additional folks. Discounts for KOA members or current military/fire/police (you will have to show ID).
    • Pets allowed with no additional fee
    • Free showers, hot tub, wifi, camp store with the basics including ice and firewood
    • Creekside Cafe on site: breakfast 7:30-10:30am, dinner 5:30-8:30pm
    • Mesquite BBQ, beer/wine and live bluegrass Friday and Saturday night


    For 2018, we have reserved sites 47, 47A through 47F, and site 48. These sites are "on-hold" for our group until the end of July 2017. To reserve one of these sites, please call 970-325-4736 and ask to speak to Deborah. Please say that you are with the ST-Owners group and that you would like to reserve one of the sites they have on hold for us in 2018. Please PM me after you have made your reservation and I will start to maintain a list of who has what sites reserved and who would like to share a site.

    I have already reserved campsite 47D for 2018.

    All the campsites all shaded and grassy; each include a picnic table and fire pit. There are some tent sites with water and electric available, please contact the KOA for information. There are also Cabins available if you prefer not to camp. The campground is large, wooded, has a creek, is well off the main road and runs along the Uncompahgre River. It's one of the most beautiful developed campgrounds I've seen.



    For those not interested in camping, here are some other options. Please make your own arrangements.



    The average high temperature for the end of June in Ouray is 75 degrees, average low is 50. RockSTOC I AND II were warmer than those averages. All of the sites I've reserved have shade all day. Average June rainfall is 1.24 inches. The elevation is 7,800'. Up there the sun is strong and warm. Nights cool off quickly, the campfires will be enjoyed. Be prepared for cooler weather on your rides, you'll easily get over 11,000'!

    There is gas available in Ouray, but no convenience store. Ridgway has two more "standard" gas stations with all the usual convenience store amenities.

    Loads of dining options in Ouray (5 miles south) and Ridgway (6 miles north) if you're looking for more than campground food.

    Kate's Place in Ridgway is great for breakfast or lunch.

    The Ouray Brewery, The Outlaw and the Goldbelt Bar and Grill, all in Ouray are good choices for dinner..

    This area of southern Colorado has, in our opinion, the most concentrated best riding in the state. Not only are the roads and views spectacular, but the history of the area is fascinating! Plenty of things to do off bike, not limited to museums, mine tours, scenic train rides, hot springs and rafting! You could easily spend a week here and just get a taste of what the area has to offer.

    Here are some of the favorite and recommended rides in the area, including .gpx files you can download to your GPS! http://www.st-owners.com/forums/show...de-Suggestions

    Actually you guys better hurry up and grab your tent sites because in a week or so Andy is going to post an invite to this event on the K1600 forum. Next year should shape up to be the biggest one yet.

    Looks like I might be making this one. I don't think I'll be planning another trip to Europe anytime soon.
