I have stayed in hundreds of campgrounds - KOA's and state, federal, municipal and public campgrounds. I lock my bicycle to the picnic bench with my beefy cable lock. I set up my tent so that the bike is visible to me while lying within it. I have never had anything stolen or, to the best of my knowledge, has anyone even tried.
The main advantages touring cyclists have is our strangeness (to most people) and the fact that most people probably assume that we really don't have much worth stealing. And we really don't. Most thieves are looking for jewelry, pricey electronics or guns.
