Pleasant hike

This was the perfect place for my first solo hiking/camping trip! I was greeted by friendly, informative staff and paid the $7 day pass fee and $10 for the site. The hike to camp was 2.5 miles with a steep downhill grade the first quarter mile. Other than the first quarter I’d say it was a very easy hike. I saw some wildlife- deer, an armadillo, and a rabbit. I was carrying a 50 lb pack and stopped often for pics, so it took me about an hour and a half to reach the primitive camping area. At the south end of the area there’s a spot marked “A” with plenty of cleared up areas to set up camp. I decided to go a bit further north. There weren’t really any marked spots but there were clear paths and a few places that had obviously been camped at. After some searching I finally found the perfect hammock trees and settled in for the night. At some point I heard some coyotes but other than that it was very quiet and secluded so I slept like a rock! After the hike back to my car I wanted to swim, but the designed swimming area was very small and not secluded at all so I decided to skip the dip. Overall it was a great trip and I’m looking forward to going again sometime!
