Jack Creek Recreation Area

2 Reviews


National Forest

Jack Creek Recreation Area is located in a picturesque setting alongside towering rock bluffs and flowing waters. The area was constructed in the 1930’s by the Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC) and displays several unique, historic facilities. There is a short trail that climbs a couple of hundred feet to a recently restored rock overlook vista that offers a panoramic view of whispering pine trees and colorful fall vegetation. Jack Creek offers day use and a primitive campground at no cost. Also from Jack Creek Recreation Area is a trailhead for the Hole-In-The-Ground Mountain Hiking Trail and Sugar Creek Hiking Trail. Hole-In-The-Ground Trail is not a loop trail and extends approximately four miles in length. The Sugar Creek Hiking Trail extends approximately three miles connecting Jack Creek to Knopper’s Ford Recreation Area. Click here for more information.

It was a beautiful spot to camp, swim and hiking.

I would like to let all know that they have possibly closed this park permanently.  I live in the area and they have made this park totally inaccessible. There are now no trespassing signs posted.

Jack Creek

It’s primitive but bathrooms are available. It’s small and very popular with the locals. Off season it’s relatively quiet.
