    My opinion (regarding legality) is that as long as you don’t exclude someone based on ethnicity, religion, income level, disabilities, etc. you can set the rules about who gets in.

    When I travelled with a fifth wheeler and a F250 a lot of campgrounds had a no past 10 years (or 5 or 15) allowed. One of my first trips my RV was technically too old but my truck was fresh so I referenced its year.

    They really don’t care how old your equipment is but gives them a totally legal way to exclude folks ( who may very well fall into some of the above mentioned categories)

    So probably a private business can say motorcycles only.
    or like some do “No motorcycles “

    I live in Canada so this is a totally “foreign “ opinion :rofl

    Interesting. I'm not an RV'er. I'm a boater (and motorcyclist). I've never been to a marina that restricted sail versus power for example, but they might be out there. There are definitely marinas that are more popular with one segment or another.

    I like this idea, and I would visit if it ever comes to pass.

    In a perfect world, i'd have some.
    in the world of liquor laws and insurance liability, probably not.

    Also look at the current hog and poultry buildings, for bathhouse ideas.
    Cleaning with a pressure washer might be the only option if that one person shows up. :deal

    What about Vdub rallies?

    @Hot Dog Stu @atomicalex

    "Rolling Coal in the Nortwoods" has a nice ring.

    Invading the local superclub would be fun.

    This might be a deciding factor as well. The ADA is pretty powerful towards businesses.

    That being said, there is this place out by Ellsworth that is more moto specific. They cater more towards the cruiser crowd though.

    One would think if you advertised towards motos, charge an arm and a leg for those glampers and make the ingress route to the camping area only accessible to those with a truck and small trailer that you could pretty much keep it cycle friendly. Granted, your clientele would likely be limited. But it seems to me that you aren't doing this to get rich.

    I dunno, it looks like every RDV/ BYOB/Notta/Guzzi/IOWA rally I’ve ever been to.
