We have great camping venue in St. Paul’s United Methodist Church. As the start location for Saturday’s long rides, St. Paul’s is conveniently located off the Woodrow Wilson Parkway that surrounds Staunton. The church has space both inside the gym and outside for tent campers, small trailers and modest-size RVs (no hookups). 

Affordable and Convenient.

We’ve updated the camping policies as follows:

  • $20 (2 nights indoor on gym floor) per registered individual or family (on same registration)
  • $20 per tent (2 nights outdoor)
  • $25 per motorhome or 5th wheel (outdoor / no hookups) with a 25-foot maximum length*
  • *NOISE RESTRICTIONS: 10 p.m. – 6 a.m. will be an enforced quiet time, which includes no generators on campers or motorhomes to run during these hours.
  • The Boy Scout troop sponsored by St. Paul’s will be in charge of assigning camping locations when you arrive
  • WALK-INS: If you do not pre-pay for camping at Eventbrite Registration, all fees above will double to $40 per night, based on availability.
  • BREAKFAST: An optional “pay what you will” hot breakfast prepared by the Methodist Men of St. Paul’s is available on Saturday morning inside the gym.
