Been doing it for years. No problems. I prefer camping at parks vs. "the middle of nowhere," despite it feeling kind of wimpy. I can't ride at night (night vision problems), so I park the bike with a few hours to spare before sundown, camp withing walking distance of a fabulous hiking trail, and get myself a nice hike before bed time. I really enjoy the routine, the exercise, the scenery...
