Also, someone asked a great question on another thread about camp sites, so I thought I'd share my advise here as well.

A great way to scope out campsites is to use Google Maps in satellite view to look at the campsite tree coverage:

Then compare it with the Brown County State Park camp site maps

We've added a general overview of camping info to www.browncountymountainbiking.com.  It can be found here:

We've also recently added a new Insider's Ride Guide:

Enjoy!

The two best places to look on the web for Brown County trail conditions updates (and tons of other info) are this forum and the Brown County Mountain Biking Facebook page.

Please look carefully in both of these places for what you need to know.  If you can't find what you're looking for, please feel free to post your question here or on the Facebook page.
