Duke’s Forest Campground
This is by far the closest option. All campsites are just minutes from the shelter where the race starts and finishes. We have reserved the entire campground and will accept reservations directly from runners.
If you are interested in reserving a campsite at Duke’s Forest on race weekend, select that you are interested in camping on your registration. We will update the information and contact you to sign up for camping when we are ready to post these details, most likely in early Summer.
Camping at the start/finish will be prioritized by the registration date and distance running. RV sites will be for both Friday and Saturday, tent camping/car camping can be Friday and/or Saturday.
In past years, we had space for anyone interested in camping but as the race grows, we expect to sell out of spaces at Duke's. There is limited space for RVs over 35 feet. If you have an RV larger than 35 feet, we recommend that you reserve a space at another campground to be guaranteed a spot that can accommodate your needs.
Our races depend on amazing volunteers. When you volunteer, you earn race credits for future Blaze Trails races. Or, ask a family member to volunteer while you run and their race credits can transfer to you!
