Camping America on Your Motorcycle

Motorcycle buddies often enjoy going camping together. The thrill of the open highway, cooking over an open campfire, and sleeping in a motorcycle camping tent is great fun in any season. Here are some awesome suggestions for your next motorcycle camping trip.

Maryville Tennessee

Consider camping near Devil’s Run in Maryville, Tennessee. Devil’s Run contains over 318 pin sharp curves in just 11 miles. Those who want a real adventure will want to ride this route early in the morning before the traffic arrives, while those who want to soak in the scenery will want to try this ride later in the day.

The best time to camp here is in the fall when the trees are dressed in their finest reds, yellows, and oranges. Daredevil riders need to watch for bears, turkey and wild boar along the route that want to add even more fun to this camping adventure. In the evening, make sure to try to find your way out of the nearby haunted corn maze.

Sturgis, South Dakota

If you are ready to load up your tent and rev up your motors to go to one of the foremost motorcycle rallies in the world, then pack your motorcycle camping tent and head to Sturgis, South Dakota. Enthusiasts have been having fun at this rally since 1938.

Sure, the motor touring tent is much fancier than the campers used during the first festival, but the fun is the same as during that festival. Over 416,000 motorcycle enthusiasts attend this rally each year, so make sure to book your campground spot very early.

Tour Alaska

Many motorcyclists dream of traveling to Alaska someday. Thanks to the money that you can save by camping, you will be amazed at how much of Alaska you can see on two wheels. Watch the northern lights from Denali, experience Mount McKinley, and explore Tongass National Forest.

Make sure to leave time to watch the glaciers calve and the sea lions sun along the shore. Since you will be traveling so light with your motor touring tent, it is easy to see more of the state than most natives ever see.
