C & O Canal: Hiker/Biker Campsites From Swain’s Lock to Killiansburg Cave Professional Review and Guide

"There are 32 tent-only hiker-biker campsites along the canal, located roughly every 5 miles. The H/B sites are limited to one night per site. This can be an annoyance for a lot of people, as it requires breaking down and cleaning up daily.

However, it creates a great situation for people who want to hike, bike, or boat their way along a segment of the river and canal. The hiker-biker sites are often physically indistinguishable from one another, so determining which one you want comes down to location."
