Set amongst the beautiful rolling hills of Northern Illinois, just minutes from the mighty Mississippi River  is the familyfriendly Palace Campgrounds. There you will find plenty of shaded camping, mini cottages, RV hook-ups, hot showers, and even a pool and sun deck. Break away from the traditional rally and enjoy what a true motorcycle campout is all about! Meet new friends while catching up with old ones, ride the incredible winding roads through the Amish back country of the surrounding area and enjoy tons of home cooked food under the big tent.

This year's Range of Light Gypsy Tour starts at the Calaveras County Fairgrounds in the historic town of Angels Camp. This event is open to all motorcyclists and features spectacular and scenic riding, showcasing some of the best roads and stunning beauty of the Sierra Nevada mountain range of Northern California. Each day the routes cover nearly 350 miles and offer some fun GS options, as well as a decent short cut for those who don't wish to ride the full route (the short cuts are over great roads too).
