Location of 2023 USCA National Rally ?

Well...I just reserved a room at the Rodeway Inn, in Okoboji, Iowa, for the nights of the 22nd, 23rd, and 24th....and not that I am happy about it, but those three nights came to $ 625.00.

The issue is, not that many of us want to "camp" anymore. And to try to find a "decent" room at a hotel, or motel, in a Summer Resort, during high season, is darn near improbable.

VRBO has a few that are not too bad, they are constantly adding and deleting units so I have been checking occasionally.

They do say that only %25 of properties are available for those dates. Popular place.

My initial searches for AirBNB and hotel/motel show very few but expensive options  available on the Gull Point side of the lake complex for the rally weekend. In the “pocket” between West/East Okoboji are a number of options which begin at $175 per night and rapidly escalate due to it being high season in a highly desirable travel destination. 

The pocket between the lakes seems like a cool place, but is several miles in RV/Boat trailer infested roads to the rally site.  If I am mistaken about this assessment, I await correction.

We decided to stay at the Holiday Inn Express down in Spencer.  It's not that far, and what the heck, we're there to ride anyway!  Besides, I had points to burn up.  We had hoped to stay at a friend's house in Okoboji, but that didn't work out. 

Looking forward to meeting y'all!!

Cheers! Joe

Don't mind camping, actually look forward to it. So I think we have that part sorted. 🙂 Now, do I head out two weeks early and go North. Northern Quebec is calling. Or do I spend two weeks going home and see some USA that I haven't seen yet. I figure a week to get there on the slow meander. Hmmm decisions decisions.  Family stuff happening in July so that might make it for me.

If the lodging close to the rally is over budget for you and you don't mind a short ride, Estherville Iowa is about 25 miles away and show a Super 8 and a Estherville Hotel and suites which both showed availability at the time of this post in the $100-$125 range.

Personally, room reservations made and registered for the rally and looking forward to it!
