Quiet, not well known except to locals

The drive in on the gravel road takes forever but it is very peaceful once you arrive to the destination. It is nice to listen to the sound of gentle flowing water, to look around and only see one other camper well down the road, it all well worth it.

All the amenities were gone and it is fairly primitive. Overall though it was a great place to camp, for free, in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains
