    rally camping

    ok, i know its been listed in the on but i have a friend i am trying to sell on membership that keeps borrowing all my on's(probably will not join if i keep giving it to him for free, hmmm $$$$) I am wondering about campsites close to the rally, ie walking distance. any tales of overnights in the area wouldbe appreciated, local attractions and such. this will be my first national and i want to do it right, i have no doubts about the pavement but sleeping would be good too. tia

    Camping space is on a first come first served basis. There are no specific numbered campsites like a KOA campground, but rather you just find a piece of ground big enough for your tent.

    As for those who plan on arriving on Tuesday, I hope they are planning on staying in motels or a private campground that night. The camping at the U of C and the other two Rally campsites won't be open for camping until Wednesday for those attendees who are volunteering to help with Rally setup.

    The Rally opens on Thursday and runs through Sunday.

    If you're going to arrive early, you may wish to consider camping at several of the nearby state parks.

    I have it on good advice that the Carnifex Ferry Battlefield State Park is a good place to camp... located about an hour or so east of the Rally.

    Another good place near the same area is Babcock State Park

    Be sure to read this story about riding east of the rally.

    West Virginia has a great state park system!
