Natural beauty

Great fishing! Pretty basic with bathrooms, fire rings and picnic tables. Small campground pretty busy. No reservations so you take your chances. Overall its quiet and beautiful.

Close to the AT

On the banks of Rock Creek, these gravel spots offer wonderful fishing and hiking opportunities; with the Appalachian and Benton MacKaye trails close by. Very secluded, but also close to gravel Rock Creek Rd so traffic noise can be a factor. Maybe not the best for hammocks, but plenty of space for multiple tents at each site. Also has a tendency to be windy in this valley.
