Full Version: Campgrounds With Bike Riding?
RV Park Reviews Campground Discussion Forum > RV Park and Campground Discussions > RV Park Discussions
We are looking for campgrounds that offer access to paved or rocked bike trails, or even side walk access into small towns, that you can ride directly to from your park site (not on hwys or mtn biking trails) specific area. Just looking to compile a selection of parks to visit that offer lots of bike riding....

Suggestions of parks we have stayed at:
Bob Shelter COE park in Des Moines, IA
Island Retreat in Gulf Shores, AL
Rend Lake COE in IL
Peninsula State Park in Door County, WI
Red Rock Ponds in Holley NY. Right alone the Eire Canal. This gravel/part paved bike path runs along the tow path of the Erie Canal and runs from Albany, NY to Buffalo, NY (454 miles) The section running past Red Rock Ponds is gravel. Ports and small towns along the canal with numerous fine dining and other services.

Red Rock Ponds has all gravel sites that are full hookup with 50 a at all sites, cable at all sites. WiFi sucks badly! Have some pull through sites and many sites that will accommodate big rigs (we have a 45 foot coach and toad).
Rafter J Bar in Hill City, SD. It's right on the Mickelson (sp?) Trail, which is a great paved bike path. It does cost, I think, $3 per day to use the trail. There are collection boxes along the trail.
We stayed at Sundermeier RV Park in St. Charles, Missouri, and it was great for bike riding, because there is a smooth gravel trail (former railroad) that is adjacent to the park. The trail runs along the river, and goes through an old historic part of town. We had lunch at a cool little roadside place that caters to bicyclists, but I can't recall the name of it.

NOTE: Here in the RV Park Reviews website, St. Charles is listed twice, once with a period (St. Charles), and once without a period (St Charles). Sundermeier can be found in the one without the period.
Pine Island near Ft Meyers, FL has several miles of nicely paved concrete sidewalks in the area around the Ft Meyers/Pine Island KOA. Many bike riders use the walkways, including the dozen or so recumbent cyclers in "convoy" that passed me one morning while I was getting in my morning 5 mile walk.
If you are ever in South Louisiana try Fountainbleu State Park. It is off of I 12 near Lake Pontchartrain. It has easy access to the Tammany Trace bike trail which is about 30 miles long. It is a flat well maintained trail. There are several trailheads offering bathrooms and a good rest stop.
We are in Heyburn State Park in Idaho and there is LOTS of trails for bikes, etc. in fact one is 72 miles long!
