Routes / camping and the southern tier route
« on: October 25, 2010, 08:50:28 pm »
Hello-- I've read a few very short blogs from southern tier cyclists who camped a hundred percent of the route.  Wondering if it's true that it's easy to find campgrounds along the route, and wondering as well how much people paid on average for campgrounds along the southern tier.

Also-- has anyone started this ride in February and wished they'd started a few months earlier due to cold? (that's unfortunately the earliest I can start)


 I will have a bunch of time off between a move and looking for a new job this winter/spring, and I am choosing between the Southern Tier and Atlantic coast rides routed by ACA. My preference is to go up the East coast from the Keys and ride up to Newfoundland from mid March through mid June (as opposed to a Southern Tier ride from Feb-April). I'm curious if riders who have done the Atlantic coastal route found campgrounds easily? The East Coast trip has the advantage of being closer to services than the Southern Tier (which has long slogs through the desert), but I would think that would also mean a lot more car traffic.

Any riders out there who have done both the coastal route and the southern tier who can compare campground availabilty between the two routes?

Any help will be very much appreciated
