2 Reviews of Danville Conservation Area
Quiet, no services, good hiking

There are two main camping areas here. As you pull into the area, take the first left down Turkey Ridge (I didn't see and turkeys the whole time I was there, but did see lots of mushroomers). You will see the first camping area shortly- there is a pit toilet, some picnic areas, and some parking slots for RVs(no hookups). KEEP GOING! Down at the bottom of the hill you will come to the second camping area. There are no services here- no pit toilet or trash, and no hook ups for RV’s. But there is a nice mown meadow with a big fire pit next to a pretty creek. Camp here. Jump across the little creek and hike the Glades Trail along the creek and then up the hill. Lots of little ponds scattered along the trail including one that looks like a fairy ring(its up top, super cool!). Back down by the campsite you can bushwack along(or in) the creek to a cool rock overhang that drips down into the creek.

Quiet, secluded

Quiet spot about 5 miles off the interstate, but you can't hear much noise. This area is mostly woodlands and glades. Danville Glades Natural Area (361 acres with primitive camping and a fishable stream (Clear Creek). There are two camping areas - one area has ~8 individual campsites and pit toilet. The other area is a gravel parking lot at end of road. No bathroom at parking area.
