The boyhood home is in Hodgensville, KY on 31E. If you continue south and cut west to 31W, you'll 30 or so miles of quiet 2-lane twisties to Mammoth Cave National Park. The HQ campground is near the Mammoth Cave Hotel and Visitor Center and has nice pull-in sites, running water and abundant firewood. Coin showers are available by the MC post office. Tell them Ranger Wilson sent you and it might be good for a discount, I used to work there.

Wicked Hurricane campground

Located near Damascus, VA in the Mt. Rogers recreation area. Campground has shady streamside campsites, hot showers, fireplaces, picnick tables & level tent pads. Cost is around $12.00 per night per site. Also can expect the occaisional bear to wander through, so keep food secure.
Outside magazine named this one of the ten best places in North America to pitch a tent, and I agree with them. Campground is still not crowded due to remoteness and 10 miles of gravel road leading to it.

Oklahoma, Osage Hills, near TAT

I have a few to add but I'll start with one in my home state of Oklahoma.

Osage Hills State Park
http://www.stateparks.com/osage_hills.html

Oklahoma, roughly 12 miles west of Bartlesville on 60 then south at the sign.

Not far south of the TAT

36.73744N, 96.18430W

If I recall correctly it's $10/night w/o electric and $12 with electric.

This is a surprisingly nice little campground in NE Oklahoma. It's not terribly popular and as a result is generally very quiet. The road into it is paved if that matters. All spaces have a table and fire ring. There's a small lake and some hiking trails nearby. I walked a 6-mile (I think) loop that went past an overlook on the lake.

Arkansas, Lost Valley, near Ponca

Lost Valley Campground, near Ponca, AR
About at: 36.01000N, 93.37501W

Fairly secluded walk-in sites (no RVs). VERY nice short (3 miles round trip) hiking trail up the creek past a couple small water falls. The hike ends at a cave that has a waterfall inside it a few hundred feet back. Bring a light and plan to get a bit wet/muddy.



Near the trail

Sparkplugs Motorcycle Camp - O'Brien, OR (Redwood Forest)

If you need a place to stay in the Southern Oregon coastal range area then Sparkplugs place is a bonafide motorcycle camp. 50 spots including teepee's. Hot showers, full kitchen, toilets, horseshoe pit and cold beer. All for $10 a night. I can say that without a doubt this was the highlight of my riding this summer. I made a good friend and I'm sure you will too. Sparkplug and his family are some of the nicest people I've met on the road to date. 30 miles from Crescent city, CA and 40 miles from Grants Pass, OR.

I ride a lot alone, but I'm not a loner. I also travel very light. Unless it's high summer that usually means when it gets dark, it's time to crawl in the tent and go to sleep.

What I want is a campground with a bar.

I'll give an example; there is a great bar on the Potomac called "Bills Place," and there is a campground almost adjoining it. This is a perfect place for a solo traveler, who really would just like to have three or four beers, some bar food, and then go to sleep.

The campground is

http://www.littleorleanscampground.com/

the bar is

http://www.mdmountainside.com/attrac...ttraction=1252

I expect a lot of people here have been there.

Where I want to go with this thread is places where you can camp with someplace to eat and drink in walking distance.

We rolled in late Sept,10pm to camp,they gave us a site next to the bath house, told us ride around the building to the site (on a walkway)The next day they had a pig roast free for all campers They also sell beer walking distance to site,100 yrds
They are very mc friendly, and treated us like regulars,($50- 4 guys 2 nights)
Also I believe they are in the area of Little Sturgis.
WE Are going back next year

Campground w/Bar-Food, Petersburg, IL

Passing through IL a couple years back, I camped 20 mi. NW of Springfield IL at Lincoln's New Salem State Historic Site in Petersburg (http://www.lincolnsnewsalem.com/). It was clean and quiet, and I was pleasantly surprised to find good food and drink at Warburton's bar and restaurant right across State Park Road adjacent to the campground (http://georgewarburtons.com/)
