Deadbeat Retreat 2022

The Party Is Returning To The Saco River!

General Information

The 2022 Retreat is returning to the Fiddlehead Campground August 26-28th (13 Lovell Rd, Fryeburg, ME 04037).
The event is about riding custom motorcycles and having fun! If you're going to go camping on your motorcycle it should be on your motorcycle. Previous Retreat's consisted of mostly home built Choppers, Sportsters, Dyna's, & more. We wont have vendors, sponsors or any other bullshit. What we will have is a two day motorcycle campout on the Saco River. That's right, we'll have an entire beach to ourselves inside of the grounds. Fiddlehead Campground is located within 30 minutes of some of the best riding Maine and New Hampshire has to offer. If you're looking to get out and ride for the weekend, spend the day either floating in the river on Saturday, or exploring some of the best motorcycle roads than come out!
This is a 21+ Event.

Here's the the deal on the weekend:

This year we went ALL OUT and grabbed the entire campground at Fiddlehead! Bring your swim trunks, food, beer, and what ever else you may need to make a camping weekend with friends a blast!

As always there are no designated campsites. It's first come first serve, plan on camping next to and with other retreat attendees. The grounds consists of hard dirt and grass (off beach) and sand (on beach).

Plan to be self sufficient for the weekend, bring food and any other supplies you may need for two days. Also since the Retreat is a laid back "hands off" kind of event we expect all attendees to bring and make their own party! Whether it's a game, theme, or a specific way to make your site stand out we encourage you to do so.

Please come with a good attitude and remember IF YOU PACKED IT IN PACK IT OUT. Nobody wants to have to clean up after you, be respectful of the grounds, Fiddlehead Staff, and everyone elses property while you are there. The Retreat dies with Fiddlehead if you see something out of line say something..... Don't be the guy that ruins the fun for future years. - Steve
