Title: Cyclists Only Campground
Post by: twood78759 on August 02, 2012, 12:23:47 am
I'm looking at the GPX maps and often find a waypoint that has the name "Cyclists Only CG".  What does this mean?  Is this stealth camping?  Is there any way to confirm that the campground still exists?

Hi Tom. These are full-featured campgrounds for cyclists only. No RVs or other motor vehicles. Some are quite elaborate, with Wi-Fi, kitchen facilities, snacks for sale, etc. They are prominently marked on the ACA maps, where you can find phone numbers in the services directory.

Jenn has written about them in her blog at

If you are on the trans am or lewis and clark don't miss the one in twin bridges, it is quite nice.

The Bike Camp in Twin Bridges, MT on the Trans Am, is a great facility. Stayed there last year. Hot shower, flush toilete, bike repair stand, large camp sink, BBQ grill, screened in structure to escape the mosquitoes and lots of soft grass to pitch the tent on. And only a few minutes' walk into the center of town.

Many years ago I camped at the cyclist-only spot on the west slope of Togwotee Pass, which is also on the Trans Am. Primative, but a very nice view of the Teetons.
