Campgrounds W/Bars and Food

Hot Springs Campground, Hot Springs North Carolina, campground is located on the main road in Hot Springs right on the banks of the French Broad River.
There is a store right in front with a decent selection of beer along with a small restaurant. You can walk across the railroad tracks and your right in the middle of town with several restaurants and bars. Many fine roads to ride in this area including one of my favorites NC209 which runs to Waynesville, NC.

The campground has tent sites, a few small cabins, and hot showers. There is firewood available for purchase at the campground or at the store out front.

Thumb Website for free camping in USA and Canada

Traveling through US and Canada can be pricey. Here is a website with free (or very cheap) camping, description of each place, utilities, GPS coordinates. Really good. It was made for RVs, but will have good use for us also (unless its a Walmart parking lot ;-) ). Check it out it is worth it.

Costa Rica

Country: Costa Rica

Province: Puntarenas

Location: Ballena Marine National Park, Uvita.
(Parque Nacional Marino Ballena, Uvita)

Several entrances along the highway. Signs and markers posted on the highway.
There are entrances to beaches that don't belong to the National Park, therefore have no water, showers or guards/ rangers at night.

The beaches that DO belong to the National Park are:

-Playa Uvita (km. 162 and km 163) No camping here but access is permitted

-Playa Colonia (km. 164) Primitive camping, shared outdoor showers, toilettes (always dirty in high season, otherwise ok) And you can park your bike next to your tent, chain it to a palm tree or a "beach almond"

-Playa Ballena (km 169) Same as Colonia except the parking lot is a few yards away from the actual camping site, and although the rangers are nearby, there's no guarantee that your bike will be safe overnight. This is a very nice, tranquil area, but I always follow the "you never know" principle.

In all these places there is water. I do not recommend drinking it unless filtered or boiled. However I have brushed my teeth with it and have been 100% ok, but I'm Costa Rican and might be a little more resistant to local "bugs"? if any? Again, the "you never know principle" applies.

$7 per night. The guards will ask you to pay in advance, coz they're too lazy to keep track of people who are camping and the ones that are not, so if you are spending more than one night there pay 2 or 3 nights and just stay longer if you want... they won't know...

Definitely a GREAT place to camp. Toad Rock is a well run campground for adults. There happens to be a dual sport rally last weekend in July. The West Kooteneys have some of the best motorcycle roads and forest service roads you are likely to find anywhere.

Muncho Lake, Northern BC

Stayed there summer 2009. Fee was probably around 15 bucks. Very simple. No showers or anything. Just remember the great view of the sun setting on the mountain on the other side of the lake. My profile pic was taken there.

Camping near Yosemite

Does anyone know of a good RV campground on the East, or West side of Yosemite that can handle a 40ft coach?

Taking the family to Yosemite for a week or so this summer and want to be near, though not in the park. No hookups for the coach and way too many people inside the park grounds. I'll be hauling my bike on the back and riding through Yosemite. Yes, I wish I could ride from San Diego but no matter how farkled the bike, I can't fit the family on it.

Thanks Gents!

St Francis Kansas

USA

Kansas / North West Corner

US RT. 36

FREE CAMPING!

It is an absolute "can't miss it" place. The town is to the north of 36, the park is just to the south.

If you scroll down to the bottom of this page, it is second from last. Roadside Park.
http://www.stfrancisks.com/StChey/StFran/fun.html

Site confirms the following facilities:
Free Campgrounds. Nestled amid tress, this park is located just south of Highway 36 in St. Francis, and is a welcome retreat for the weary traveler. The campground feature hot showers, indoor restrooms, picnic tables, grills, covered shelters and disposal facilities.

One of my favorite free camp places out there.

Nice view. That might be Limekiln State Park. If it is you might have trouble getting to it becasue of the land slides in the Big Sur area. The alternate route is beautiful though much further.

Limekiln State Park is on the list of 70 parks to be closed because of the reduced budget. Hopefully it is contracted to private.

In the US National Parks, anyone can primitive camp for free. Just thought I'd throw that out there.
