It is the policy of Oceans Lakes at Myrtle Beach to not have motorcycles on the resort grounds. But you can bring them and park them out front, you just can't ride to your site. Most campgrounds allow you to ride to and from your site and others will allow you to ride around the park. I don't know any other campgrounds as restrictive as Ocean lakes.
I stay in N. Fort Myers every winter and bikes are allowed in the 3 campgrounds I have used there.

Nope I really did mean HOA's just to give a perspective that there are restrictions on things you can or can not park somewhere. So an RV park not allowing motorcycles, while rare, is not unusual. I wish it was but it's not.
And in an RV park you are just "renting" a spot for a specified time while with an HOA you are buying into what you can or can not park in front of the house you are spending lots of money to live in for years.
Just reminding people that there are rules on vehicles every where and if you don't like the rules you can politely let them know that you don't like the rules and you will advertise the restrictions so that others will know not to bother them.

We went 4000 miles last summer towing a goldwing and a Royal Star and never had anyone even mention the bikes except to say "ahhhh living the dream". I guess if you are twenty and have a load of dirtbikes, this might be different.

Sounds like Myrtle Beach..... went there about 12 yrs ago and the CG I was at told me I had to leave the bike at the office. Seems common in Myrtle Beach, so I've never gone back.

Unfortunately there are a few. They are mostly RV Resorts.

One I have in mind is Marina Village Camping Club Marina Village Resorts | the best kept secret on Lake Livingston

They do not allow motorcycles at all!

I stayed at this resort once as a guest of my wife's uncle. A very nice gentleman - I think the club President - approached me more than once about becoming a memeber. It was a nice campground in a great location but - and I told him this - they have one rule they'd have to change if they want my membership. They'd have to allow me to bring my motorcycles.

To that he said, "... well, you can park them up at the gate, walk there then ride anywhere you want!" Really!

He went on to tell me that the rule exist because in the early days of the campground, when they were still in the middle of nowhere, many people would ride there dirt bikes through the campground. So they just banned them all. I told him that as a licensed motorcycle rider, on a street legal, insured motorcycle, I had a serious problem with their rule.

Needless to say... they didn't change their rule... and we're not members.

We are full-timing in Kissimmee. When we were investigating parks to stay at, we didn't find any that would not allow us to have bikes on property but one required riders to push their bikes to the front gate before starting them up. My Royal Star Venture weighs about 900 lbs, so that wasn't happening.

Sugar Mill CC in New Smyrna Beach, Fl does not allow them in the full hookup area. They have water and electric sites and they are OK there. That is the only one I've run across in 25 years of travel.

I have ridden all my life and have just started to RV last year. I at some point hope to combine the two. I think that some of the issues with the campgrounds is the extreme pipes some of us prefer. I can understand it only from a noise standpoint. This is the first bike I have owned that still has stock pipes on it. I miss the rumble but my wife likes it better.

It's unfortunate that all of us that ride are painted with the same orange and black paint. These bans are a direct result of the obscenely loud pipes that some people put on their bike so people will turn their heads to look at them as they go by.

Most of those people are totally different during their daily lives but put them on a loud bike and all of a sudden their need for approval and attention gets the best of them. They make decisions that they normally wouldn't and those decisions affect all of us and park owners make the decision to ban all motorcycles.

Personally I dislike these policies but I can understand their decision and just look for another place to stay.

And Loud pipes do NOT save lives! Situational awareness and talent save lives! Loud pipes simply say "Look at me!"
