Primitive Camping with Lots of Trails and Scenery

This wilderness area has a terrific trail system with waterfalls, overlooks, and more. I like it because I got to spend time beside the Middle Saluda River. I checked out the other campsites, and I decided to pick campsite 8 because it is right beside the river. You can hear the sounds all night…

  • Campsite 8 is just a short walk from the parking lot.
  • Just upstream from the campsite, this is what I found.
  • The walk from the campsite to the main trail is a short distance.
