I vote to close; too subjective, and can lead to arguments about stealth camping. Also, see this thread in meta. Touring is in scope as long as it sticks to on-topic areas. –  Neil Fein Aug 26 '10 at 15:12
    
This is a bit off topic and too open. Maybe restating the question would help. –  milesmeow Aug 26 '10 at 16:05
    
If you are not interested; you should no look at things tagged touring or camping. See my meta post: meta.bicycles.stackexchange.com/questions/7/… –  sixtyfootersdude Aug 26 '10 at 16:42

Whether or not this is on topic is one question (currently being discussed on meta). Another is whether this is a good question. In my opinion, this is an opinion poll, vague and broad, with multiple, "chatty" answers. I think it should be closed as subjective. –  ire_and_curses Aug 26 '10 at 17:11

@hhh, we decided in meta that questions specifically about camping are off-topic. Here's the specific question where this was decided. May I recommend the excellent Accommodations forums on Crazy Guy On a Bike? (I spend a good amount of time there and have several journals on the site.) Alternately, feel free to contribute to the discussion on meta if you disagree with the decision; perhaps you can get the community to reconsider. –  Neil Fein Feb 18 '11 at 17:39

Mixture of campsites, friends and hotels. If I've got a rest day (staying in one city and checking things out) typically hotel.

I have some friends that just went up to houses and asked if they could camp on the lawn. They rode from Toronto to PEI with no camping fees.

I get scared to ride through some places, much less ask people to camp on their lawn! I need to move to a more bicycle-friendly area... –  Russ Warren Aug 26 '10 at 15:01
    
Yeah the maritime provinces are pretty friendly. A few times my friends saw people at a rest stop that lived locally and got invited over. In fact most times the family invited them in for diner and offered showers, drives to the grocery store...Us Canucks are a friendly bunch. –  curtismchale Aug 26 '10 at 20:33
