This is one of the best places for primitive camping I've been to in years. For the most part the road is in decent condition but take more than one spare with you it's a long way to any help. If you spend the time to research the areas to visit it would take a few years to see them all. A great place to hunt, fish, hike and camp. Loads of coyotes, deer, some hogs, turkey, and signs of bear. I wish there were some GPS maps with locations and borders available as it would be easy to cross on to private land. Plans are to revisit a few times this fall.

I spent a year living in a tent there and was never so happy. I woke up to watch osprey fishing every morning. In the hot summer you can find the deep clear water filled with almost translucent freshwater jellyfish. The smallmouth are my favorite fish with their amazing fighting ability and little river hosts a number of them. The large number of plants there can keep a naturalist like me busy for days after a hike looking for names to go with the pictures. It is truly a nice place to soak up some woods, but cell phone reception is out of the question. All the more appealing to some!

What good is a permit for this when you can no longer pleasure ride on it I am sick and tired of such rules as this,not everyone is a hunter or fisherman. This must be put back into the way it should be

Great place for hiking and primitive camping. Lots of fossils...ferns, tiny pine cones and other plant fossils. The stones under the water are uniform in size and look as though they were placed by a stone mason. Water clear, small waterfalls.
