    Last year camping was $15 per nite. I expect that this year will be similar. If not, Michael can correct me.

    Admission to the event is FREE! The food vendors are not free, but who would expect them to be?

    CIC 3 camping and lodging info

    Sorry, I haven't been on the Forum in a couple of days.

    Lodging information:
    There are a couple of onsite options. One is the Kaatskill Hotel, a luxury spa and lodging option. Prices have been greatly discounted from the rack rate, and also from what is charged for other Hunter Mountain festival events, but it is still the most expensive lodging in the area. The "pro" is that it is within easy stumbling distance of the CIC and the Oktoberfest activities. The onsite condos are about the same price as the hotel rooms, are located next to the hotel area, and come with "condo" ammenities such as a kitchen. Both types of lodging can be reserved from the www.HunterMtn.com Festival webpage, Colors in the Catskills by using the blue link thingy.

    Camping information:
    Onsite camping will be available for Friday and Saturday nights. Cost will be $15 per night. Camping permits will be available on line, much the same as you might buy a ski lift ticket, or at the event. Hunter should be putting up another link on the Festival web page shortly for camping passes. There will be porta potties and potable water around the camping area as well as indoor restrooms with sinks, mirrors and hot air hand driers within easy walking distance of the camp area. The camping area will be adjacent to the vending area and near the Oktoberfest craft, food and beer vendors. It is a nice grassy area, much of it flat, some on a gentle slope.

    There are a couple of New York State campgrounds in the area that are still open at that time of the year, but they are farther away and are more expensive than camping onsite.

    Hope that helps.

    CIC 3 Lodging

    I forgot to mention the local tourism website as another option for lodging. Go to www.greenetourism.com for the Greene County New York tourism agency, look for the lodging section. The nearest towns to the event are Hunter, Tannersville and Windham. There is plenty of local lodging, no need to stay 31 miles away in Kingston unless you want to.

    Another question answered: The event activities will open to the public at 10 am on Friday and end at 6 pm on Sunday. Come enjoy as much of it as you wish.

    Talking Colors in the catskills

    HEY EVERYONE...GREETINGS FROM HUNTER MOUNTAIN...HOME OF THE 3RD ANNUAL COLORS IN THE CATSKILLS!

    CAMPING REGISTRATION is now available online. $15 per night for two bikes and one tent per site. There will be potable water and inside restrooms available. I am working on a shower facility with a summer camp across the street from Hunter and will post more when I hear back from them.

    LINK TO CAMPING REGISTRATION: https://eski.huntermtn.com/itemList....ode_id=1079200

    We are solidifying plans for Friday evening. We plan to have Colonels Hall open with live music till 9:30pm...music starting at 6pm. There will be a beer bar in Colonels Hall...a perfect meeting place.

    The Hunter Mountain Oktoberfest does not begin till Saturday...but once it gets rolling it'll be a great time.

    The skyride to a newly constructed deck on the mountain will be open on Saturday and Sunday. This is really a must do...the view is spectacular.

    A little view of last year....

    Bikes of all shapes and sizes


    Shopping With A View...


    People Who Look Like Their Bikes...


    Perfect Parking...


    Beer Drinking Merriment


    And Great Music All Weekend Long...


    So come one...come all...to the Colors In The Catskills 3...where there's fun for everyone.

    To Make This Even More Fun...

    They'll be two random questions per day starting tomorrow and each day following leading all the way up to the Colors in the Catskills. The first person to post the correct answer wins a pair of skyride tickets valued at $16.

    I will also be giving away a two night stay at the Kaatskill Mountain Club for the 2011 Colors in the Catskills...valued at $320. You must register to win at the Hunter Mountain tent on-site on either Saturday or Sunday.

    new to BMW MOA

    Hi everyone,
    My name is Rick Shrier and I purchased an 04 R1150RT in July after being an avid scooterist. I immediately joined MOA and have ridden over 4500 miles over the past couple of months.

    I am planning on attending the Color in the Catskill Motorcycle Rally and look forward to meeting some of you there.

    This forum has been extremely helpful getting to know my Beemer.

    RV camping available?

    Hey, looks like a great rally and would love to attend with my wife. As old farts we sometimes like to use our RV instead of a tent. Dry camping is fine, can we also do this for the $15 a night?

    You can park the RV in the Oktoberfest parking lot for free, no electric or water, but level. Right next to the bike parking area for the Colors.

    How does that sound?

    Smile Query: Specific Schedule/List of Vendors?

    Is a specific schedule of events and times, and a list of vendors available yet? I've already been to the Hunter Montain Website and the Color in the Catskills website, and they just list general things like bands, food, beer, Max's Demo truck, etc.

    Thanks and looking forward to riding some great roads and meeting some other riders!
