Dispersed Camping

This place can be a bit hit or miss depending on the season because of the water levels. If you catch it during the right time of year though it can not only be a great place to do a little dispersed camping but also to enjoy some fishing. We used to go here to do some bank fishing and pulled some nice sized catfish.

There are no improvements because it is dispersed and your campsite will be based on where you elect to stay. We chose to set up for night fishing along the banks and set up just a bit back from that not to far from the bridge. There was a small pull in area and from there you would have to hike in a short distance.

There is plenty of space to spread out and material for a campfire but you will need to create your own fire pit or ring to safely burn in this area. The night skies here are vast on a clear night and you will hear a lot of animals moving around this area as there are large populations of deer and other smaller animals. You will want to watch out for wild hogs which migrate through the area at times. Do not go here without some kind of protection against those if staying overnight.

TIPS:

  • Do not leave food out at your camp because of the amount of wild animals in the area or you will be overrun by morning.

  • Bring a headlamp or lantern because there is no outdoor lighting whatsoever.

  • Consider an ATV, this area can get very muddy and an ATV can be very helpful if you are trying to explore very deep into the area.
