Routes / Re: Sierra Cascades camping reservations
« on: June 12, 2014, 10:05:49 am »
Traveled this route last year mid June.  Lake Tahoe had to ask for a biker site and ranger showed up and was nice to give us biker price... other wise would have been expensive.  seemed like tahoe was not set up for biker camping and charged often $35 for a site.  We stayed at richardson camp in south tahoe and was good.  June 19th... no reservation needed.  good restaurant at this camp and we splurged and ate dinner there that evening.  Often would just call the camp number ahead of time to check availability early afternoon so we could plan where to stay.  I recommend Markelville Hot Springs campground too $3 bike sites :) and $7 for hot springs.  it is off road 6 miles but worth it!  found a tent cabin in Virginia Creek Settlement in Bridgeport, CA 93517  (760) 932-7780
bridgeport which was nice too and great breakfast/dinner spot again but would think it would be good to call ahead for that.  was about same price as the campsites but right on the route.  Tioga pass was great... long climb and stayed Tioga lake campground got one of the last sites.  If you can push up and get to White Wolf Camp which has bike camping and one of the best breakfasts we had on the trip. the valley we stayed one night in tent cabins very $$$ but the next day went to camp 4 and stayed 2 nights there.  Biker sites are $5 and you will share with other bikers which is good.  Peets coffee in the lodge there so stay in Yosemite was great... I have already written a lot and as you can see really enjoyed the trip with my buddy.  Hope to do another trip next year like this for about 30 days... hope your trip is as much fun.  Basically mid morning or early afternoon would start determining where we would end up and call for a site if we had a number... some state parks/national parks will not have #'s so you just show up and hope ... most of the time they will accomodate you.... Enjoy the trip

Planning a trip mid July to the adirondacks and using the map of the Adirondack Park Loop...
will be traveling with one other person from Syracuse and wondering if there is a good place to park the car we are driving there and leaving it for 5 days.  anyone recently do this route and have suggestions for camping, bakeries, or just general notes?
thanks in advance
