4th Annual Kamloops Kamping Trip

When: June 21, 2024 - June 24, 2024 - All Day

Where: Paul Lake Group Campsite
Paul Lake Group Campsite, Kamloops

NSRide is hosting its fourth annual CAMPING TRIP!!!  Once again, we have secured the group campsite at Paul Lake Provincial Park for the weekend of June 21-23.  We actually have it booked until the 24th, so anyone who can take the day off on Monday are welcome to stay.

The group campsite is conveniently located at the bottom of the shuttle road for the Harper Mountain trail  network.  This weekend is a ton of fun and a bit different than what you normally expect from an NSRide event. We will not have “official” club rides this weekend.  Instead, we will gather as like-minded mountain bikers in an awesome location and spend the weekend riding bikes.  There is a climbing route on Harper Mountain for those who want to pedal and it is a great mountain to shuttle.  The trails are great for riders of various skill levels to ride together without anyone waiting too long or feeling pressed to keep up.

If you are coming and wish to shuttle, please let us know if you have a vehicle that can take multiple riders and bikes.  Bonus points for higher clearance vehicles (SUVs and Trucks).  The road to the VERY top can get a bit dicey. 

All attendees of the Kamloops Kamping Trip who plan to ride bikes must be NSRide Members.  At minimum, one member of each party needs to be a full member, but significant others or friends are welcome to attend the trip with a one-week guest pass.  Dogs are also welcome and don’t need a guest pass (because they are pawesome).

Date:          Friday, June 21 – Monday June 24

Location:   Paul Lake Groupsite.  Paul Lake Road, Kamloops, BC

What is included:

  • 2 or 3 nights stay at Paul Lake Group Campground.  Great if you can stay until Monday, but at least there is no pressure to pack up early on Sunday
  • Good times with like-minded mountain bikers in an awesome corner of the province
  • Fetch with Chester (because he will make you).  All dogs welcome!

Important Notes:

  • At least one member of each party must be a full NSRide Member.  Significant others or one friend are welcome to join a full member as long as they have (at minimum) a one week guest pass valid for the dates of the event.  The guest pass is needed for insurance, so if your significant other is NOT riding bikes, no guest pass is required.
  • The Paul Lake Group Campground is in a remote location with no cell reception.  Cell reception is a 5-7 minute drive up the road.
  • There is a hand pump on site for water, but it often has a boil water advisory.  It is strongly recommended that you bring enough drinking water for the weekend.
  • There is a large covered cooking shelter and and pit toilets on site.
  • The campground is a 20 minute drive from Kamloops.  There are no restaurants nearby.
  • All attendees must be self sufficient for camping, cooking, etc.

Cancellation Policy

  • Refunds are not permitted, but substitutions are welcome.  If you are unable to make it, find an NSRide member to take your place and contact the organizer to let them know who will be attending.
  • No refunds will be issued for no-shows
  • This is a rain or shine, sleet or snow event.  In the unlikely case that the event has to be cancelled, 100% of all registration fees will be refunded.
