Seneca Rocks - Camp Ride UPDATED

  • April 27, 2013 · 9:00 AM

Update:  Looking at camping at the Seneca Shadows National Park campsite.  Some campsites have a direct view of the rocks.  Depart at 9am, take leisurely ride out to WV, stop off in Davies WV for some supplies, should make camp by 4pm, then maybe take some time to explore around the area.

 

=====================

Hey all... just wanting to get a date secured for a camping ride this spring before campsites start to get crowded.  This would be a great opportunity for anyone wanting to give motorcycle camping a try for the first time.  It's just one night of camping.  All you need is a sleeping bag and tent, we'll have pretty much everything else.  We will look to ride probably about 200 miles of country road or so on Sat to get into the campsite by 5ish to have plenty of time to set camp and relax.  We'll look to be back in Warrenton before 4pm on Sunday.  Destination is TBD, but thinking maybe Black Water Falls in WV, not too far and some nice roads.

    so glad we were able to rework the schedule... it looks to be raining quite nastily in WV mid-day on Sunday as I watch the big green rain blob move across the weather map. Good times to have some new bike campers

    Mike... cool... glad to see you willing to give it a go... nothing special needed for the mattress... walmart has inflatables with the air pump. After that, just a flash light... some guys have a small fold-able stool they bring, to be able to sit closer to the fire on occasions.

    I just picked up a tent, sleeping bag, and pillow. I'll order the sleeping pad tonight.

    Mike, we have fit as many as four tents at a single campsite costing $25... pretty cheap divided 4 ways. We tend to stay at state park campsites given they tend to be more in the woods and rustic vs some of the commercial sites... they have always been clean and dry... except for the one beside the "bog of eternal stench" as Mike H. put it... but even that was not a problem. I suggest going with not more than a 3 person tent, a cheap "mummy" type sleeping bag, and add an air mattress just for some added comfort... it's worth it after a good day of riding. You really don't need more than that other than maybe a flashlight.

    How much for the camp site? I don't have any camping gear but I'm thinking about getting some for trips like this.

    Also, are campsites generally in good condition? When looking for camping gear, I saw a picture of 2 riders camping in mud and a couple inches of water (my current fear for my experience).

    I'd like to do this little dinger! I'm a maybe.

    I have nothing on my calender for this weekend, but I have a hard deadline @ work the following Monday - so I may have to work that weekend. I'll make the go/no go call the Thursday or Friday before.
