I'm looking to bike the GAP this Oct. What is this CG like? Do you recommend it? Is it clean? Safe/

Great place for camping. If you arrive early enough, you can claim half of the covered band shell. I saw and used power outlets all along the side of the grass. Showers. Walking distance to restaurants. Can’t ask for a better location.

Ignore my earlier question. The title of the message is clear. I agree with John W. The Maple Festival Park Campground in Meyersdale is one of my favorite camping spots for all the reasons John W cites plus there are picnic tables under that theater shell as well as electrical receptacles. There are stores to obtain necessary items there also. The only drawback is the trek back up the hill to the GAP trail from the campground but it is rideable with appropriate gearing and fitness.
