Camping Is Available At The Rally.
Camping at Rally In The Pines Base Camp is dry camping only. We are off-the-grid and in the central lowlands surrounded by three mountain ranges. The Base Camp is NOT an RV Park and there are some County maintained gravel roads (12 miles) you must travel to reach the Base Camp. The Base Camp is in the high desert lowlands, in the valley between the mountains. It sets at 7000 feet elevation. The mountains around you average between 9,000 to 12,800 feet.
Camping is $95 per RV/camper for the entire event.

Unfortunately, there will be no tent camping at the Base Camp.
Everyone MUST have their own bathroom facilities.
There are no showers or porta potties in the camping area.

For cell service right at the Rally Base Camp you will need either a satellite service or a cell phone booster. We have tested Verizon at the Base Camp with a good booster system, it works very well for voice, text and internet.
Internet is
slower than normal with a small cell booster.
Please Note: There is good cell reception a few miles down the road or a little ways up on the mountain behind the Base Camp.

At Rally In The Pines we have group camping sites available with picnic tables and campfire rings. Firewood is provided. The group sites can accommodate 12 to 24 RV's. Please call us if your group is interested. Additional fee is required.

We also have a community campfire ring at the Rally Pavilion for everyone's use. Firewood is provided.

There is horseshoe pits and Cornhole at the Rally Pavilion too!!


What will the weather be like at the Rally Base Camp?
In July, Idaho is warm and dry and the Rally Base Camp is at a higher elevation, 7000 feet. So it has wonderful temperatures in the month of July. The Base Camp has an average temperatures of 75 to 80 degrees in July. Much nicer temperatures than places at lower elevation. You will need a minimal amount of air conditioning, if any. But you may need a little heat in the mornings before the sun comes up. Do expect cool mornings.
Many of the areas around the Base Camp will be at elevations of 8000 to 10,000 feet. Temperatures will be much cooler up there. Please make sure to bring warmer clothes and even rain gear with you if you plan on going to these areas.

What's for dinner at Rally In The Pines?
At Rally In The Pines we will have a hot dog/S'more campfire roast on Friday night and the Western BBQ Dinner on Saturday night, featuring BBQ sandwiches, fruit salad and potato salad. Dinners are included.

We will also have a pancake breakfast Friday morning that is included with your registration!

What should I bring with me to Rally In The Pines?
Bring an ATV and/or Side X Side. Bring enough water for your entire stay, gas for your machines and propane. The Rally Base Camp will have cooler Summer temperatures than most places in Idaho, because of it's higher elevation. Because you will be riding in the high mountains, bring warmer riding clothes and rain gear. Bug spray is a good idea on the rides. But we have not needed it at the Base Camp. We have no mosquitoes! Bring everything that you normally take when you ride. And if you fish, defiantly bring your fishing pole and tackle. The fishing is world class and you will have 2 lakes, 2 rivers and a reservoir to choose from. Many within a short distance of the Rally Base Camp. Stop by The Bent Rod in Challis for all your fishing needs.
There is a hot springs in the area too! So maybe a bathing suit?

Is my dog welcome at Rally In The Pines?

Yes, your dog is very welcome at Rally In The Pines and on the rides. We ask that your dog be on a leash in the Rally Base Camp and no dogs are allowed in the Rally Pavilion area. Please clean up after your dog. Your dog must be in control at all times. For everyone's sake at the rally, any dogs that bark constantly, their owners will be asked to leave the event.

Do I need to register my ATV or Side X Side in the State Of Idaho?

Can I change names on my registration?

This change must be done by email, from the email given on the registration. The Rally In The Pines Board Of Directors must approve all name changes on registrations in advance.

Why doesn't anyone answer the office phone right before or during the event?
Unfortunately, we do not have a full time office staff to do a multitude of changes on registrations. From approximately July 1st, through the events, we have no one in our offices. Everyone is working on-site with very limited phone and internet access. Please email and/or call with your questions and requests prior to July 1st. After that, we are ready to rally! Thank you.
