Unpack and unwind under the stars
Depending on the reader, camping can either be an exciting escape into primitive living to cleanse the mind from the hassles of routine life or merely an overrated activity with no reward other than knowing whether or not your mosquito repellent works. Let’s push aside any negative thoughts for a few minutes and focus on the positives. Besides, camping is an American pastime and a lot of fun when combined with a motorcycle ride.
If you’re looking for a campground that’s far enough away from the city to make the ride worth it, but close enough to run home in a pinch, then consider Tomlinson Run State Park. Heading West of Pittsburgh, the park is located along the Ohio River in New Manchester, West Virginia. There’s plenty of scenic back roads and quite a diverse number of ways to get there no matter which direction you’re coming from.
