FHU Camping with Bike Trails

Two ebikes on a deck overlooking a river

This post is a list of full hook up campgrounds with bike trails that can be easily accessed via the campground.

If you want to recommend a campground/bike trail which I haven’t listed, please feel free to contact me, and I will work to include it in this post.

Of course, there are many FHU campgrounds with bike trails; this is just a start. I’m hoping over time, this will be a great resource for those of us who want to camp and bike.

This post is organized by state and city. The Search bar may be a convenient way for you to view the information. This post is a work in progress, and I will continue to add to it. I’d like to put the information in more of a “directory” type format; however, I am not sure how to do that on WordPress. All suggestions are welcome!

Campground: Gulf State Park. There are 496 full hook up campsites in the park. Even so, you’ll want to get your reservation early, as this is a very popular park.

        • Thank you! I will work on adding Top Sail. I appreciate the suggestion. As a side note, we live in New Town St. Charles – which is modeled after Seaside. Have a great day!

            • When we visited DC, we camped at Cherry Hill. (I do have a post about our DC visit.) We took the Metro everywhere and walked. My daughter lives in DC and bikes everywhere on trails! I happen to be visiting her this weekend. If I find out more info, I’ll respond again to your comment.

            • That would be great! We are booked at Cherry Hill for 3 nights the 3rd week in May. Having a Class C and 2 dogs, we wanted to drive it to a safe park near DC one day, take the ebikes and dog trailer and do a day trip sightseeing. If your daughter could recommend a good place to park, that would be much appreciated! As your site grows, I would be glad to mention you on my upcoming RV and ebikes video. Probably 4-6 months out right now. Thanks again, Alan

            • I will certainly ask my daughter. She’s lived there for 5+ years and has never had a car. She gets around by metro, bike or uber. I loved Cherry Hill. They do offer a tour of DC’s monuments at night. We chose not to do it at the time, but I wish we had. Next time! We did tour the White House and the FBI building. We had tickets to tour the Capital Building, but we were wiped out, so we didn’t go. Another regret! DC is so much walking. Ebikes are a nice option. Do you have a YouTube channel? If so, let me know the name. Here’s my post about our DC trip. Back then, I wrote one post for each trip. I’ve since adjusted to not put so much in one post. Happy Camping! https://chambersontheroad.com/2019/09/28/dc-in-an-rv-pittsburgh-too/

            • Hi Alan, I talked with my daughter. She suggested you look at Kingman Island. She said there is parking there. You can then bike the Anacostia Riverwalk trail along the river. She suggested riding to the Navy Yard area and then on the roads into the heart of DC. She said there is a bike lane on the road. I suggested you email and make sure you’ll be able to park your Class C there. The area is also referred to as the Kingman and Heritage Islands.

    • You’re welcome. I will be working on adding to it tonight, but I’ve had a great response. So, it may take a few days to get them all included. Enjoy your day!

  1. Great idea, Betty! Here are two if you want to add them: Cherry Creek State Park in Aurora, CO and Chatfield State Park west of Denver. Both have FHU, concrete pads, and trails that also link to other urban trails.

  2. Love your RV park reviews. When traveling to Tennessee last year, we stopped at an interstate rest area on a beautiful lake…Rend Lake!! Now I know that there are COE parks there, I want to return!

    • Oh yes, that rest stop is very pretty! And we love the Rend Lake COE campgrounds. With Dan’s national senior parks pass, we get 50% off most campsites at COE parks. I always look for those first! Safe travels!
