    Considering a two day bike trip with my wife next month for our anniversary and looking for camping recommendations at Raystown. Plan would be to drive out there, setup camp, do an evening ride around the trails im familiar with, dinner/sleep, wake up and do some more riding/exploring on trails I haven’t ventured, then head home.

    Looks like there are plenty of tent sites to choose. From those experienced, any preferred over the others? We'd be going towards the end of Sept so hopefully somewhat "off-seasonish". We don't actually own a tent, so would like a 'tent site' that we can park at and sleep in the truck (not sure if they're all like that, or if there's a parking lot and you have to walk to the sites?).

    Thanks!

    Sorry for keeping your little buddy home. Changed it up a bit this week, but we'll get you guys together for a play date soon. :)

    Matt,
    Woodlands campground is where we stay. That being said we don't tent camp but rent their double cabin. 2 couples can comfortably sleep there and its a bike ride away from the trails. Flush plumbing and a kitchenette.

    We stayed at Seven points too.
    Awesome site. The connector trail was ~30' down the hill from our tents. :)
    I don't remember the site #'s we were at but @Rusty might.

    Ditto on camping at 7 Points if you're tent camping. Right near the trails and if you want to mix it up, you can always go hang at the marina and rent paddle boards or kayaks.

    Great information, may head out there this Friday to Sunday. Will look into booking tent site at 7 Points Campground as I have a camp set-up in the truck. Do the campsites have electric hookup for 12volt outlet plugins?

    Yes full electric at 95 percent of sites. Enjoy.

    where do you guys stock up or get food near Seven Points Campground?

    I can't find anything except a Weis in downtown Huntingdon, 11 miles away.

    There's a giant grocery store in Huntington right before you leave town towards the campground. And a walmart. But yeah, Huntington is the main town and last decent spot to stock up.

    There's a litttle bit of stuff in the store at the Marina if you get in a bind.
