Great article! I love all the tips and definitely will be adding to my supplies a few more comforts. I took my first motorcycle camping trip on July 4th of this year right in the middle of the pandemic. It was a spur-of-the-moment getaway with no reservations made and really not even sure where we were specifically going to. We just pointed our bikes in the southern direction and took off for a three day getaway. We ended up traveling from Ohio to Tennessee and while sitting at the Tennessee welcome center we were lucky enough to find a campground that would allow tenters. It ended up being an amazing trip and we stayed at a river outfitter along the Nolichucky River. Though it was the best time ever, I definitely agree with the article that a little planning ahead can ensure a great time as my husband and I were lucky that we secured a place to stay! It is all about the journey.

That's great! I'm so happy you were able to find a place, too. Here's to many more great moto-camping trips for you and your husband. Stopping at the state's welcome center was a really smart thing to do, and a great tip for our readers. The information you can pick up there is often not what you'd find online, and the people who work there will have up-to-date information that can prove very valuable and time-saving.

Great article! I’m an experienced motorcycle camper and found all of your recommendations on point. I've got my sleeping setup where I can stand up in the tent and it all fits in a 30 liter drybag.
