One of the reasons we chose the Peaceful Valley Scout Ranch for Mad Gravel and The HEMI is because of the great camping opportunities and other family activities. Camping will be available on Thursday thru Sunday nights on the Ranch grounds. All camping areas will be a short distance from MG Headquarters and the Dining Hall which is where registration, vendor info and the start/finish area is. Dogs will be allowed in select portions of the area for camping. We ask all dogs be on leash and cleaned up after at all other times.

  • Peaceful Valley does not have full hook-up sites and all camping is considered primitive.
  • There are full restrooms and showers very close to all campsites.
  • Dogs are allowed but please pick up after your pet and keep them on leash at all times.
  • Cost is $20 per night and you can sign up at the registration link.
  • Quiet hours are 10:00 PM – 5:30 AM
  • Plenty of space is available for tents (or camping vehicle with tent)
  • Trash will be available at various places near the dining hall.
  • Open fires are not allowed.
  • Room for large RV’s and trailers.


We are happy to announce that WINGATE by WYNDHAM in Colorado Springs will be the official hotel for Mad Gravel and The Hemi. Located perfectly on the north side of Colorado Springs, this hotel is only a 40 minute drive to the venue.
