9/9 - 9/11/2022: LUCKY 13th Annual ORP Dirt Formal Gala | Dogtown Lake |near Williams, AZ | 4x4 EZ | Games & Prizes!!

 

It’s that time of year! Join us for the LUCKY 13th annual ORP Dirt Formal Gala in the beautiful ponderosa pines of Williams, AZ. Chock full of friends, family, games, prizes, laughter and dirt – there’s fun for everyone! Stay with us at improved group site at *Dogtown Lake Campground where you can enter the salsa & dip contests, or simply sample and vote (YUM), enter the 1st ever ORP Overland Field Day and win prizes, or watch it all from the comfort of your camp chair. You don't want to miss out on this! 

 

*We navigated away from our original plan to return to the Cinders OHV this year due to the devastating Tunnel Fire. We'll be monitoring the O'Leary Campground and Cinders OHV regeneration progress and hope to return someday. But we couldn't let that hinder our plans to host an awesome weekend with our ORP fam, so we grabbed the Group Site down the road at Dogtown Lake.

 

  • Check out the historic town of Williams and Route 66
  • Explore scenic trails in the Kaibab National Forest
  • Fish or hike at Dogtown Lake
  • Enter to win official Offroad Passport swag in a range of epic camp games
  • And more!

 

Grab the family and come spend a weekend tent or RV camping with us. Don't be that person hearing about all the great stuff you missed for the next whole year - sign up now!

We reserved the group camp site at Dogtown Lake campground. All campsites can accommodate tents, trailers and RVs. Campground amenities include flush toilets, drinking water and garbage bins. There are no hookups or dump station at the campground. Overflow parking is also available. Campers are drawn to the area's hiking and fishing opportunities. The lake is stocked with trout, crappie and channel catfish. Visitors can enjoy a guided nature trail near the lake and a hiking trail that leads to a scenic overlook of the area from the top of nearby Davenport Hill. The calm waters are inviting for canoes, kayaks and electric motorboats. Single motors of one horsepower or less are permitted.

The group site is Loop C in the image below, highlighted in yellow.

If your RV set up is too large for the group site, we found these nearby alternatives for your consideration.
