Really!?!?! Trees are off limits?

In Ontario Provincial Parks it is the norm to tie tarps to trees. Two 20' x 20' tarps and one can cover just about their entire site. That is how we keep dry.

The attached picture is not mine but is typical of what you will see up here especially if there is any chance of rain. Attachment 46510
I have a 100 by 80 ft tarp that has been used in Ontario Campgrounds. I have not but my kids did.

Our Bikes travel on top of the Truck on a Thule Rack. As a general rule we will put under 5th hangover but sometimes just lock to a tree. I have never tarped the bikes, firewood lives in a bin for kindling, the rest loose in the truck.

buy a grill cover. you probably could get one big enough to cover 2 bikes. i purchased 2 grill cover at HD and use them to cover the mopeds. i also use a smoker cover to cover the console on my boat.

Obviously your state laws are different, but if the law or campground regulations say no ropes around trees - I would think the ranger would be in the right to enforce the rules.

indiana state parks also say no to trees but then you go to some parks and the rules are lax and others big trouble
one park wouldn't even let the tenters put tents on gas they had to set up on the gravel lot. needless to say we have not been back there

when we used to camp state parks we would lock the bikes to the camper or trees not so much as theft protection but my kids would take off and this way I knew where they were and could tell them when to return to our site. My son is autistic and he would take off every time just about when dinner was ready and I would have to search him out so he could eat. No rules about tying ropes to trees here in Mi. either that I know of we used to tarp our whole site when we had our pop up and no AC on the 90 summer days for shade. Another suggestion we used to oput them in our screen tent at night. or tarp them when it was going to rain. usually we just leave them out in the rain and the seats that are nylon material we just take off and out in a compartment. Now we are seasonal and I built a 8x8' shed on our lot but we still leave the bikes outside unles we go for a trip for more than a day or so.

I'm guessing that was at Potato Creek. I've been camping in Indiana my whole life and never encountered a grumpier campground staff than at Potato Creek.
