Riding cross country on a bike is a great adventure, but it can also be an expensive one if you spend your night in hotels. Plus, hotels don’t allow you the space or freedom if you are riding with a group, to hang out together after dark. When planning your next motorcycle trip around the country, check into any one of these campsites and instantly feel welcome.
The Bottleneck Inn
Found in Okehampton, this spot offers the biker the best of both worlds. The inn is large with a pub and restaurant that caters to motorcycle clubs. Right on the edge of Dartmoor National Park, the Bottleneck Inn is a common site for bike rallies and get togethers. Just a stones throw down the road is a campsite where not much more than the space to pitch your family tent is offered, which for most bikers that’s all they need. You can build a small campfire to cook on your camping stove, but the real draw is the immense space where large groups can spread out and have a great time.
Fisherground is located in Eskadale, Cumbria and can be a rough ride to get to, but well worth the trip. The passes are as high as 1291 feet and narrow, so make sure that if you are traveling in a large group that all the riders are prepared for this type of terrain. Once you do reach the campground you will find that the basic amenities are offered at this scenic camp ground, and that it is also popular for families. If your motorcycle club wants some more privacy, head just a few more yards up the road to Hollins Farm where only bikers are allowed to roll out their sleeping bags.
In this Brockenhurst campsite, motorcyclists are given their own field to spread out in. There are no shower facilities here, but there are cubicles for washing. This is a true nature lovers stop as wild ponies are known to frequent the grounds in search of food.
If you want a truly scenic motorcycle adventure, grab your camping gear and head to the Isle of Skye. The bed and breakfast offers ample room out back for motorcycle clubs to settle down in the family tents for the night. This is a popular spot, so you may want to book in advance to make sure that there is enough room at the campsite.
If the B&B is booked, travel to the Loch Greshornish where a riding loving couple operates another motorcycle friendly campground. This one is in a prime spot to call home base if your club wants to spend the days touring the incredible island.
Camping offers a unique benefit to motorcycle clubs. They can get together and ride for days without the worry of finding accommodations for all at night. Suggest this at your next meeting and see just how many of your club members are devoted camping loves underneath all that leather.
