^ That's the area I'll allude to below
What my original intent to accomplish is to create a map of some lower priced bargain sites to bike tent camp.
Sure, anyone can pull off in a forest and do the stealth thing and that's fine and dandy if you are passing through
or want to head up 20'sh miles off your route to find a "safe" spot.
But more than not anymore I would just like to stop somewhere on a planned route and not be gouged $17 or more
bucks for a piece of grass or gravel just to throw up a tent.
I noticed last year on ride trough Idaho that there were numerous forest service sites that were just $6 to camp!
That was the D'oh! moment for me.
Being a lot of our riding is through Oregon and Washington which seem to charge at least $17 and up, improved site or not
Enabling you to sleep on the ground seems a bit ridiculous to me. Maybe there's a practical business reason for it,I don't know
I don't run a camp ground, But at those prices I'm seriously considering it. I've got 5 acres of dirt and trees you can throw a
tent on for free at the moment (probably 20 miles off your path)
The places I'm listing are far from "secret gems" they are all very well known by about +10K in my area plus readily seen
on any map. Just some are very cheep or free. Maps of course don't post the fee. We recommend good values in hotels/Hostels
and food stops all the time,Why not cheep established tent sites?
Would you ride on an extra few miles if you had known you could save a$10 for a decent site would you?
I probably would even with no guarantee's.
Good riding to Ya!
On Washington Pass a lot of people camp at the Blue Lake trailhead. But if you drive 4 miles East you'll find the Cutthroat Lake trailhead which is more private, quieter, and a mile off the Hwy 20 so you can't hear the big trucks at night.
