Group Sites

Our Wildflower Staff will be working closely with all registered Triathlon Teams / Clubs with over 35 registered athletes to find sufficient group areas that we will block off for you. Group areas do not include full hook up sites so these groups will need to bring a self-contained RV / Trailer units; however, the Club Rewards program will be giving away a hook-up site to those that win the monthly registration challenge.   For the group sites, there are no additional fees once your athletes pay the $25 / night / person fee. For example: Thursday – Sunday it only $75, which is a great low rate for a weekend of festival and racing fun.  Racers can register through the general admission camping and choose your group from the drop down menu.
