Driving from the Pacific Northwest to BRC? Free camping!

Postby wedeliver » Mon Mar 18, 2013 10:26 am

If you are driving from the Pacific Northwest we wish to gift you a place to stay and rest on your way to Black Rock City. We have offered free camping to people going and coming since 2006 and again this year 2013. For those who have never been here, we are located 60 miles south of Klamath Falls, Oregon in California just off California Hwy 139.

Here is our gift to you. A place to camp (free), rest (free), prep your mutant vehicle (free) and just relax in a safe secure, privately owned, property. In the past years we have closed the RV park to only burners but we have found that people staying here love meeting burners and learning all about Burning Man. We have bathroom facilities with showers if you need it. Our water comes from a well that is over 300' deep and the water is great, better then bottled I would think. We can fill a 50 gallon drum in less then 5 minutes and the water is a gift to you.

Early entry folks, Rangers, Med Staff, Fire folks, Theme camps all welcome. Some people like to stay here from Friday and leave to arrive at sunrise on Monday morning. Naturally the same thing goes for on your way home after the event.

In 2011 we stopped counting at 500 people and that was on Sunday afternoon, I figure another couple hundred came after that. A lot of people come in late at night, take a shower get some sleep and head on out again. Other people stay longer as I said above. We kinda leave it to you guys to not make a mess and Burners live up to that request!!

Hi WD! I'll be stopping in this year! Can't wait to see you and Barbara! It's so generous and kind of you to open up your place for us! It'll be fun meeting new burners!

It's a really good place to stop if you're coming from Portland, Tatonka. It's approximately 7 hours away from Portland, with about 5 hours left to go (plus entry wait of 3-5 hours at peak times).

WeDeliver is a great guy... one year there was an unpublished surprise extra requirement for MVs to have two red normal taillights (I think it was pressure from the regular police) and our man WeDeliver gave me the taillights right off his trailer to use for the week on my MV. He showed up at my camp on Monday to put 'em back on his trailer for the trip home.

OH wow what a beautiful offer!! I live in Humboldt county.. but would you be welcome to me spending a little time with all the burners/campers you acquire before heading to the Playa? I am a lone Burner in a small ass town called Fortuna. I would love to me immersed in burners BEFORE I reach the desert :]

Thank you for being such open caring souls, this is what I love to see in the world.

Blessed be! <3 Venus

Wedeliver had over 500 people last year . . . I'm guessing he wouldn't mind 1 more, even though it's 40 miles out of your way. :)

This place is great, Thanks WeDeliver!!!

I have stopped in at their place the last two years, and plan to do the same thing again this year. Great place, friendly owners, great showers, very good water... it is a great place to stop if you are driving from Klamath Falls and the rest of Oregon.

Bring a gift for WeDeliver if you can. The place will be full of Burners, its a great place to get started on your way to the dust.

Thanks again!

I had planned on staying at a buddy's farm in K-Falls (I'm coming from Corvallis, OR), but this definitely looks like way more fun! :-) Wedeliver: are there any treats you especially love? I would love to bring you something special for your generosity!

Thanks for the offer, WeDeliver. Will be flying in from Albany to Seattle, then driving from Tacoma to Black Rock. I was told it would be a good idea to split the driving up a bit and maybe stay somewhere overnight. Looking forward to stopping by for a visit.

DO THIS! Make a two day trip of it! Break your trip up with a rest stop going and a-coming!

Absolutely! I've been driving to BRC from Seattle for over ten years; originally I did it in one big loooong day but it's MUCH nicer to split it up.
Nowadays I even split it into three; Seattle to burner friend's place in Portland first, then to Cedarville the next day, then to the playa the next.
The only reason I don't stop at WeDeliver's is that I'm getting 5 or 6 MPG in my truck hauling all my stuff and can't afford venture at all off of the most direct path!

You guys are so awesome for continuing to offer this service, thank you so much! Myself and the engineer from our theme camp (Tree Ring Circus) dropped in on you late night in 2009 and you helped us fill up our barrels for our mister system. Your gift of water (and the music whilst you helped us fill up) will never be forgotten.

the place outside of Paisley, OR is summer lake hot springs - http://www.summerlakehotsprings.com/ Nice place to stay for those who come via Bend. They increasingly cater to (read: profit from) burners. Looks like it's now $20/night to tent there.

I have thought it would be nice to soak in their hot springs and party with a bunch of burners on the way to BRC, but I have had to stay here.

Anyway, we don't "profit" since we don't charge money. Humm, maybe we do profit in GOOD FEELINGS!! Come set up your tent, sleep in your car, take your last shower before heading the 130 miles to Black Rock City, fill your water tanks...we offer this as our gift since a gift is a good thing.

No we don't need any treats or gifts. Our offer is simple, knowing that people made it safely to their destination is treat enough for me.

Great offer. We are waffling going through Bend and Paisley or K-Falls. I assume you are on the K-Falls route, right? Need to google and see where you are. We are coming from Gresham/ Mt Hood. Any suggestions which route is better with a rv?

For traveling from Gresham/Mt Hood, I highly recommend the Hwy 26/97, etc. route thru Lakeview and Cedar Pass. Not only can you stop for a nice soak at Summer Lake Hot Springs, it completely avoids Porkland, OR traffic.

Thx! I am pulling a trailer by myself so was curious which road is less mountainous. I am fine pulling a trailer but just asking the question. Look and wave for a 59 airstream heading down :lol:

Um. I've been down these roads in my '82 Chevy school bus. The easiest grades and corners comes from driving down to Eugene and then heading over the cascades on Hyw 126 to the 97 and Klamath falls. There is a hot spring at the Cougar lake Resivor 50 miles out from Eugene. These inclines are much more forgiving on larger loads and a good portion of Southern distance is made on I-5 and that increases gas mileage and time. We've avoided traffic in Pitlandia by going around the east side on 205.

Hi all, just wanted to add the note that sometimes getting home from the burn is much harder then getting to the burn. Being rested will help you drive those long roads to the North, so my offer stands for on the way home also, folks have come in and slept for 2 days before emerging ready to drive the rest of the way home.
