September 16th - 18th, 2022

The Big Nasty Hillclimb is Idaho's largest motorcycle event, and it returns for year 18 on September 16-18, 2022. The theme for 2022 is 4-Wheelers return! If you are over 18, and observe our 10 MPH speed limit in the campground and the pits, you can bring your UTV side by side or ATV back to Big Nasty Land. We are adding wild 4-wheeler racing on Friday and Saturday evenings and a 15+ mile long poker fun for 4-wheelers and dirt bikes that starts and finishes at the Big Nasty. In some years we have sold nearly 1,000 camping passes. If you want to purchase one, or check to see what is available, please click here.

In addition to rolling out the red carpet for 4-wheelers, we are bringing back pumpkin shooting and fireworks in 2020, along with pit bike racing, and of course awesome food, and camping under the stars in big, mowed hay fields, along with the legendary Big Nasty Mud Bog. Oh, and over 700 entries will take a shot at the Big Nasty, one of the toughest hills to climb in the world.

Come Witness Idaho's Coolest Event & Country Music Festival!

The hill at New Plymouth's Big Nasty Hillclimb is more than 450 feet tall and with an average slope of 62 degrees, it is common for most bikes to not make it over, often flipping over trying to do so. You'll get to see some of the most exotic competition bikes in the world attempt to race up these near-vertical faces. Pros show up on customized nitro-fueled or nitrous-powered bikes with lengthened swingarms and steel-studded or chained rear tires. We guarantee there will be thrills and spills on this hill!

You can buy your tickets for admission at the front entrance gate when you arrive at the event venue. Tickets are good for the entire weekend, so you can come and go as you please. Contact Big Nasty Hillclimb with any questions pertaining to the festival.

All campfires MUST be contained in a metal or ceramic container such as a firebox or barbecue. There cannot be any fires of any kind directly on the ground for any reason.

Dogs are welcome at the Big Nasty, but ONLY service dogs can come into the fenced-in spectator area. Other dogs must be leashed at all times. ALL dogs are welcomed as long as our guidelines are followed.
