The one hotel in Medicine Park is booked full for our Kick-off weekend - BUT - because the town is a resort town, there is an abundance of pleasant and historic rental cabins & cottages available (visit medicinepark.com to find out more). The majority of these cabins will accommodate 6 to 8 people so riders might consider sharing a cabin and sharing the cost.  Medicine Park is a small enough place that most any of these rentals will have you close to the heart of town. Also, as a resort town, Medicine Park is pretty busy during the summer so be sure to make your reservations early. Mention Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge when booking to learn if discounts are available.

If you prefer a room to yourself, the SpringHill Suites and the Fairfield Inn in Lawton are offering a group rate for Hoka Hey Challengers (Book your group rate for 7/12/18 to 7/15/18). These hotels are both within walking distance of our Host Dealership and Mike’s Sports Grille, where the Meet & Greet will be held on Friday the 13th; a mere 15 miles from Medicine Park. 
Primitive camping is available just across the river from the center of town and is available for tents or RVs & self-contained campers. Anyone wanting to leave a trailer behind can park it here while you're out on the road.

The City of Lawton Parks & Recreation Department also has a very nice campground with electricity available off of Highway 58 near the shores of Lake Lawtonka for anyone staying longer than a few days. (Sites are available on a 1st come, 1st serve basis so plan to arrive during the week since they are normally full on the weekends.)
No matter where you stay, you can’t help but be close to the action!
