Lunch and dinner will be either catered or provided by food truck vendors, depending on the day.  Please let the office know if you have any special dietary needs.

ENTERTAINMENT – Being so close to Austin, you would think this would be a snap. Unfortunately, the pandemic was not kind to the music industry. Bands we used to book are either gone or have doubled their price. We have managed to secure music for each night of your visit, including a couple of local performers, a live band on Friday night and two of our best DJs.  We hope you enjoy it.

REGISTRATION – Please make sure that we know you are coming, even if you are not staying on the property. Our Hospitality Team is preparing a welcome for you, but it won’t be ready if we don’t know when you are arriving. Please call the office if you haven’t already.

LODGING – We have no more hall rooms or cabins available. We do, however, have plenty of RV spaces (mostly 30amp). Please call the office if you wish to be put on our waitlist.

Competing in the Nude Racing Series, runners will accumulate points at race they complete. Runners compete in age and gender categories and must finish at least half the scheduled races to be eligible for Series awards.

Series points are earned based on each racer’s finish time. At the end of the season, the points from each runner’s three best races are totaled, and Nude Racing Series awards awarded to the highest point totals in each category.
