My brother-in-law and I are planning a motorcycle trip too Southeast Pennsylvania Leaving Toledo, Ohio area approximately July 6, returning too Ohio on or about July 26, 2009. We will be using two small tents and sleeping bags. We are looking for anyplace too just stake our tents overnight.

The area we will be in, primarily, is Southeast of Philadelphia, primarily within 100 miles...and/or Hatboro, Pa.

Any help will be appreciate.

Thanks,

James,

I'm just outside of Pottstown, PA and I have a couple of acres, but I'm not sure what the local ordinances are concerning camping. My township definitely doesn't allow open fires, but there's a great little restaurant across the street that serves great breakfasts. You're welcome to pitch your tents in my back yard, but there's not much in the way of flat spots. I would offer you my guest room, but we are still renovating our bedroom so we are sleeping in the guest room ourselves.

If you want to find a campground, check out pacamping.com

I'm in Maryland about 45 miles south of York. I don't know if this helps but you can camp out here and have fires. You could even use my fire pit and grill. Seems like it may be a couple hours from Phili though.

Tinicum park is nice. So is Nockamixon. Both are fairly close to to your target
Why not call the state park info: 888-PA-PARKS

They have a weird price structure."camping" is $4, but a "campsite" is $17. I'd call to find out what makes the difference. You just need a place to drop a tent - you dont' need an electric hookup or anything.

c2h80 i check most of the parks thanks for the info i have one place to stay so far any other help would be great

thanks kevin but your a little out there still need a few more
I would think twice about passing on Kevin's offer. Most of us would jump at the chance to get a look at his collection, if in fact he offers. Besides, you will find that the backroads in this area to be some of the most scenic anywhere.

Well that's a different story. I wish your BIL the best of luck and hope his recovery is as successful as my mom's who also had CC. Just enjoy the ride dude that's what it's all about. If you all are big into GT's and beautiful scenery PA is the Mecca and you should have a blast. Best of Luck to both of you.
