    Where to Hang near Philly

    Thinking of heading towards Philadelphia area for a few days on the bike with my wife. Starting out in Southern Ontario, would like to stop somewhere NW of Philly the first night (but within an hour or so of the city). Day 2 I have to stop in Philadelphia for a few hrs and was thinking of then heading south through Jersey, take the Cape May-Lewes ferry and head back north, 2 nights total, potentially even hanging in the same place both nights

    Any suggestions of where to hang?

    You might look into Cape Hènlopen State Park just next to place where the ferry arrives in Lewes. Not sure if they permit hanging though.

    That's a little more south than I was looking at. Hoping to stay NW of Philly, somewhere closer to 600-700kms riding for the day.

    No problem. Someone suggested French Creek which sounds about right for distance.
