beautiful and remote

This camp ground is a primitive, small campground in Dolly Sods. There are lots really nice trail heads in the area. It’s a pretty popular area to hike, so campground can become full quick. For a nice short hiking loop in the area, I suggest TR 560 and merge onto TR510. Pictures of trails are attached.

Enjoyable Campground

Bear Heaven is a really cool place. The camp ground isn’t that large, but if you can find a spot you will be sure to enjoy yourself. Right beside the camp ground is a really cool area to explore unique boulders and rock structures. You can either walk through or climb these boulders. The area has several great hiking and mountains biking trails. Just a few miles up the mountain you can go to Bickles Knob firetower and get one of the best views in the state.

5 Star Campground

This Campground is a great place to set up camp, have a picnic, or just spend the evening. There is a large maintained field in the middle of the campground that you can play frisbee, soccer, football, etc. A key amenity in this campground are the bathrooms. They are really nice and the cleanest I have seen in a campground. Another great thing about Horseshoe is the large pavilion with lots of picnic tables and a fireplace. Make sure to bring a swimming suit too because there is an awesome swimming hole in the nearby stream.

absolutely beautiful

Spruce Knob Lake is one of my favorite places to visit in the area. It’s a great place to take a day trip to for fishing or site seeing. They have an awesome wooded hiking trail that goes around the entire lake approximately 1 mile long.

Very remote and quite camp ground

Laurel fork campground is a nice place to go if you are looking to get away from the busy life. It’s not a very large camp ground or heavily populated. Finding a spot shouldn’t be a problem. You are just a short drive from spruce knob lake and the sinks of gandy.
