Have ridden the C & O/GAP a number of times. My wife and I have ridden it on a fully loaded tandem with no problems. There are campsites every 5 miles (first come/first served), some better than others, but as mentioned above they all have a fire ring, portable toilet, picnic table and pump. There is a small charge for any sites that can be reached by car. Plenty of wood around for fires. During the summer some are overrun by scouts, but they are usually empty in the sping/fall. I agree with the water comment, but civilization is rarely more than a few miles away. Not hard to bail if things don't go well.
