Camp West-Mar is an ideal rally site, boasting 5 bunkhouse cabins each with 12 bunkbeds, acres of camping on comfortable grass fields or under a mature tree canopy, a large dining hall (where meals are served, movies are shown and coffee is available 24-7), a large, open pavillion loaded with picnic tables that serves as Beer Haus & Seminar Central, and of course a large bathroom & shower house with multiple johns and showers.
Camp West-Mar is within easy reach of not only great motorcycle roads but great destinations as well. Civil War buffs have a multitude of choices including Gettysburg, Sharpsburg & Antietam, Harper's Ferry, and Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. For those interested in Arts & Shopping both Gettysburgh and nearby Shepherdstown boast many galleries, shops and sidewalk cafes in restored downtowns. Those in search of some relaxation should definitely stop at the spas in Berkeley Springs (which by the way plays host to one of National Geographic's top-10 panoramic overlooks in the entire United States - just west of town on the incredible Rt. 9.) Frank Lloyd Wright's Falling Waters is just 139 miles away, with great roads in between!
And then of course there is the riding! Camp West-Mar is ideally located within an easy ride of some of Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia & Pennsylvania's great riding roads. Favorite Routes include the Dave Keuch Memorial ride to Gettysburgh, the Route 9 Loop, the Northern Virginia Piedmont Loop, and the Burkettesville Wander. There are always scenic maps of Maryland and Virginia at the Registration Tent, be sure to pick one up on your way in!
