terrific spot to pull up for a night

first time doing any type of dispersed camping but it was really easy to find, just off the road in the woods, just follow the coordinates and its a lil past, look for the signs, with lil sites to pull my car up to deeper in the woods, though you can still see the headlights coming from the road.

I'm not a hunter but no one else was there and I pulled up at 10pm and left 6am on the first day of open season.

Great small sites

Right off the road, easy access and perfect sites for 1 car and a tent. Only open during hunting seasons though.
