As long as you are not taking room from a horse camper they should not mind, I have seen Boy Scouts out there camping and I park out there when I hunt.
    Good to know. So are those the wooded campsites you had in mind, or do you think there are some in the main camping area as well? It'll be mid May on a Sunday or Monday most likely, so I'm hopeful that things won't be crowded.

    I like the maps, but I was hoping for much more detail than what they have. They have overall mileage, detailed, turn-by-turn directions for when the trail joins the roads, and they do make a point of saying when you're about to hit a stretch with no facilities, which I like. But I was hoping for info about camping options and maybe resupply options, which the maps do not have. That blog is the best resource I've seen for that info yet. The maps also read north to south. If you're starting in Cincinnati, you have to read them backwards.

    I would say the Horsemans camp if you are looking have some peace and quiet. On a Sunday most campers are usually packing up and heading out. No shower but they do have a restroom

    Horseman's camp it is.

    I haven't checked out the igotabike pdf yet. I've been meaning to. It doesn't look like the ideal way to present the information, but it looks like they put a lot of effort into it.
