Hidden gem at Spruce Knob

This is a great spot for a large group. Very spacious with two vault toilets. We were able to find quite a few nice hammock spots in the trees if that's your preferred camping method. The ranger checked on us each day and took trash and resupplied toilet paper as needed. Will definitely go back.
