This is a camping rally, so the best place to stay during the rally is at the rally! Motorcycles are the only vehicles allowed in the gate, so camping inside is tent only and pretty much just what you can carry on your bike. There is limited parking outside the gates for 4 wheeled vehicles and VERY limited space for RVs. This is a MOTORCYCLE RALLY!!!
The closest town with rooms is Garberville which is just 12 miles north. This is really convenient for Thursday night before the rally and also the #1 choice for those who can’t, or don’t want to camp at the rally. However Garberville is a small town with a limited number of rooms… so book early.
For the Thursday night before the rally a lot of Redwood Runners stay in Willits. Just 55 miles south (about an hour ride) Willits is the perfect place to stay so you can easily get to the run on Friday morning. Willits has a good number of rooms available at all different type places, however there is a chance all rooms in Willits will book up, so again make your reservations early.
Another choice for those coming from the north is Fortuna which is about 60 miles north or Eureka which is about 79 miles north (about an hour and a half ride). Fortuna has a limited number of rooms at a few motels. There are plenty of rooms at all types of places in Eureka, but if you stay in Eureka you will need to get up a little earlier if you want to arrive when the gates open at the run.
