Where to Stay

Your best bet for this event is to stay in either Milford or Beaver, which is right off the highway. There are several inns and motels in the little towns around Minersville. The town itself is really just a little pass-through town, so don’t anticipate a whole lot being available right there in town. Buy your tickets for the event now and we will see you in Utah!
