The West Coast Rendezvous is “where old school meets the wild west”… Held at the Saddle Sore Ranch campground off of Route 66, just east of Oatman, AZ., and past the stretch of road known as the ‘Mohave Rattlesnake’ with 222 curves in 10 miles. The West Coast Rendezvous encompasses activities and venues that stretch between the Saddle Sore Ranch and Oatman, AZ.
It’s an old school/wild west feel. Onsite camping with tent and rv spots available, but as they say at the Ranch, “Our only hook ups are between consenting adults”. Bands, nightly “adult” campfire parties, biker rodeo games, flat track racing, swap meet, the “World’s largest outdoor stripper pole” and more. It’s basically a place where you can come let loose with a bunch of like-minded old school bikers. Do whatever you want, as long as you obey their only rule: Respect EVERYONE.
The West Coast Rendezvous is most known for being the final destination for the nationwide, nationally acclaimed “Blue Collar Build Off” competition. The weekend event also hosts a ride-in chopper and vintage bike show dubbed the “Rusty Nuts” show. There are usually a handful of select vendors, but don’t expect any corporate big rigs, or $20 corn dogs. Some will go on a big group ride in the mornings to some kool area spots, then head back to the ranch in the afternoon and start preparing for the nights campfire party with bands, outdoor movies, etc… Those that didn’t go on the group ride can go on their own ride, or hang out at the ranch where they have games, activities, horseshoes, bbq grills, flat track and more.
For those that just want to use the ranch as a basecamp, there is lots of great riding in the area. Route 66, the Grand Canyon, the Hoover Dam, Mohave Rattlesnake, Hualapai Mountain and more… If you are so inclined, the proximity to Laughlin makes it ideal for a quick ride over the mountain to grab tshirts or catch one of their concerts.
