    2018 NT Gathering in WV

    2018 WV NT Gathering
    May 17-20
    North Bend State Park,
    Cairo, WV
    -->RSVP here<--

    The park has a lodge with rooms & cabins plus they have camping just 30-40 yards from the main lodge/restaurant building. The restaurant serves buffet breakfast, lunch, and dinner plus the nearby small towns of Harrisville and Ellenboro have other eateries. We just had lunch at the lodge last Saturday and everyone enjoyed their meal. The nearest large city is Parkersburg, WV approx 30 miles west. You can find the locale on your maps by finding Parkersburg, then east on US 50 to WV 16 south. From that point, it's about 10-15 minutes to North Bend State Park. You guys coming from the east could also use US 50 west to get there.

    I did a check at Booking.com and said lodge is sold out for the Weekend of the 17th, did you already reserve the lodge? Booking.com has dates on either side of weekend. Did NOT check cabins.
    I emailed northbend@wvdnr.gov to see if rooms are available.


    Sounds like a great place for a riding event.

    WVRider (Duane) is "our boots on the ground" guy since he lives 20-miles away so I'll have to check with him. He may have already asked the lodge to block-in a number of rooms for us . Stay tuned!

    Duane has arranged to have 10 rooms blocked and reserved for us. He's going to talk to the Asst Super to find out how to access those rooms when making a reservation but I suspect calling directly, vs using their online system, may be required.

    By the way, no reservations are necessary for those hearty soles who are camping. :-)

    All looking good. Tosh, I spoke with Kathy and there are 10 rooms set aside for the group. Ask for one of the rooms for the "NT Motorcycle Group". I will also arrange to have some coolers at the camping location for some refreshments. I will supply an assortment of refreshments however we can also add to them with your choices once on location. At least two of the routes I put together have fantastic restaurants about 3/4 of the way through the loop where I plan to stop and take on groceries so dinner will not likely be needed those evenings.

    Edit: The refreshments will be for everyone and we can replenish as seen fit.

    If Jim Moore's eye surgery works to get him back on his bike, we're thinking about coming to WV.

    Will likely have to call direct 304-643-2931 and ask for one of the rooms set aside for the "NT Motorcycle Group". We only have 10 rooms, but lots of room for camping. As noted, no reservations needed for camping and it will be a small fee. I'll let everyone know for sure but sounding like $10. There are showers and restrooms at the camping location.

    A footnote while planning your route to the event. If coming in Via U.S. Rt.50, use either Rt.31 through Cairo (follow the signs) or Rt.16 at Ellenboro and go through Harrisville to get to the park. Do not use Rt.5, which most gps' will try to bring you, unless you like riding gravel roads. If coming in from the south, Rt.16 is awesome but note it will be used for at least one of our routes during the event. There are several 2 lane routes from the North, however it is best to meter down to Rt.16 at Ellenboro to come the last few miles.
