      Exit Tours nailed it yet again! We had some great music and light shows by one big stud of a DJ, loads of good friends and family, totally inappropriate bonfires, and a flame thrower! The planned rides were all amazing. Sunday breakfast was on point as well. This is a great event to get to know other moto minded people. Can't wait for another Exit Tours ride!

      Had a wonderful time. Very well planned and prepped. Good times had by all. Will do it again if we get the opportunity.
      By Jeff R for Free Father's Day ride on Jun 26, 2024
      My wife and I had a great time. Views from the camp were stellar! Breakfast was good and plenty. A grill was available Saturday evening for you to BBQ what you brought. Campfire was he best ever and the light show with the great sound system made the whole experience legendary! The routes were many and varied with memories guaranteed. There were maps and apps for all the rides. A great group showed up and I will definitely be in for another Exit Tour adventure.
