This is a walk in/drive to campground off of an unpaved forest service road. There are no amenities. If you drive in, keep your food in your car. If you hike in, store your food properly with a bear bag or canister. Three different trout streams come together here and the fishing is fun. There are rules about what kind of lures/hooks you can use, so be sure to do your research.
is a nice flat section of the Appalachian Trail that can be accessed by forest road 42 and offers an easy 1 mile hike in the the falls. Campsites are dispersed in the area along the creek and often have remnants of thru hikers coming down from Springer Mountain in the first days of their hike to Maine. The falls are great for sitting and cooling off. The dispersed campsites are all along the creek so there is ample water all around. Some of the sites and side trails lead to steep drop offs that allow you to scramble around and find some good swimming holes
Gear Review: As a Dyrt Ranger, I get to Review cool gear on my camping trips. This trip I tried out the Morsel Spork and Morsel XL utensil for cooking and eating camp food. The Morsel Spork is the smaller version and good for kids hands. My kids used it to eat Mac and cheese right out of the Dehydrated food bag. One end is a Spork and the other end a really cool spatula th hat can be used for stirring, cooking, or serving. There is a nifty hole so you can hook it to your pack or hang it on a gear wall. The heavy duty plastic makes it light weight and rugged. wall. The heavy duty plastic makes it light weight and rugged. The Morsel XL is longer and goes all the way to the bottom of the larger portion Dehydrated food bags. These were designed with this type of food in mind so there is no waste! They also clean up super easy.
