Kaibab Lake - May 24-27, 2019
8th Annual AZ Hot Birds Kaibab Lake Rally
- Located just outside Williams, AZ up in the cool country, perfect time of year.
- Bring your bike! Great place to ride.
- Make reservations RIGHT NOW!! These go fast!
- Over Memorial Day Weekend
- We want to make sure we’re all in Loop-A & B if possible.
If you cannot get into A or B loops then look for C, D, & E. You may play with the dates to see if the spot is available. Also, make SURE you check the site length! Also, note there is a list of sites and a map on the website for clarity.
Most come to the rally Friday and head out Tuesday morning to avoid traffic, but come when you can, and stay as long as you like!
Kaibab Lake Campground, 2 miles north of Williams AZ, one of the prettiest campgrounds in the state, with nice, big camp spaces (no hookups), some pull-thru, pine trees, great fishing lake, Ramada, close to town, etc. And the Memorial Day Weekend is the optimum time of year there. Never hot, rarely too cool. And centrally located/interstate access/paved roads to campground.
Beautiful! Last year we had six coaches, 3 potlucks, fun bonfires even though fire restrictions were in place, since we had a propane fire ring, went to farmer’s markets in Williams and Flagstaff, hiked 2 miles around the lake and saw wildlife including eagle’s nest and eaglets, Saturday breakfast in town in which six biked to and the rest drove, and played “High-Density Badminton”!
This year needs it’s activities/attendees planned out. There’s so much to do there, and in the surrounding areas. For starters there’s a world-class tourist destination just an hour’s drive away. We could plan a rim hike or attend one of the guided talks or tour the Kolb Brothers Photography Studio, etc.
Then there’s William’s-centric attractions like Bearizona, the historic buildings self walking tour, and new stuff like The Big Toy Playground, the wine tasting bar, and the Zip Line. Just watching the steam train depart is fun, which they tend to bring out for Memorial Day, and the train museum at the depot is quite nice.
Visit Elk Ridge Ski area, dine at their restaurant or see if they’re running their lift for summer scenic views. There’s also petroglyphs there. Planes of Fame Air Museum is right in town. Deer Farm. Grand Canyon Caverns is just 66 miles away. And Lava River Cave is 1hr, 12 minutes.
Year before last, a few of us went on the posted nature hike, right in the campground, and the Ranger was very knowledgeable and interesting. We walked over the dam toward the Aspen tree-laden meadow, and he told us all about the flora, fauna, and history of the area. He even had a bag full of taxidermy feet of various animals to identify tracking.
Also, there’s lots of things we could consider right in the campground like potlucks with themes, perhaps a breakfast or lunch instead of dinner. Volleyball, badminton, horseshoes, corn hole etc. Charades. “Bring at least one story to the campfire to share”. Tell us your ideas for this year! - But reserve a spot now, as they go fast
