  • Lots to see and do here. Free admission during the week. There wasn't even an attendant, when I drove in today, in the toll-taking booth. I understand that there's a slight charge on weekends. Hardly....  more

  • Great trails, even after a lot of rain! There are more rocky trails throughout the 9 mile course, but there are at least one or two trails that have smooth berms. Good to know that the trails hold up after lots of rain, probably because of all the ponds nearby that the water can drain to. You’ll get water views, but also the turnpike. Much narrower trails than Camp Murphy at JD, take it easy if you’re not familiar or you’ll end up in the drink or hitting a bolder jetting out on the trail!
  • We checked in early afternoon as the day was hot yet beautiful like magma cascading out of a volcano. My friends and I were greeted by a tepee decorated that had a view of a glistening lake surrounded by fauna and critters of the land. We started by hotboxing like our ancestors would, listening to music, sharing stories of our past with our souls intertwined, and time-warped with the rhythm of Mother Nature. At a certain point, we wandered into the bush around us getting engulfed in the trees and various plants. Flowers with the colors of pastel and spiders a little too big for comfort were bewildering. Rain fell with grace, thunder rumbled, and lightning cracked. The spiritual connection with this strange land struck my soul and being. Somehow we found our way back to the campgrounds welcomed by snacks, water, and a warm dry place to lay our heads. The sun grew weary, colors painted the sky and I watched it go to sleep in bliss, watching through the shelter opening. Night fell. It was quiet. There was a rustle in the bushes as a dark beast-like shadow appeared. As my eyes adjusted I saw it was a feisty little raccoon. It approached fearlessly with his opposable thumbs and careless demeanor. I try to thwart it off however it was relentless, coming back again and again for another chance to scavenge. Eventually, he saw there was no chance to get his feast, not yet at least, so he went off into the night for an easier way of nourishment. When it was time to leave, I was comforted knowing that I will forever remember this experience and the part of the forest embedded in my heart.
