  1. Firewood is not actually for sale at the campground. You will need to go ~6mi south on 224 toward ripplebrook, there is a general store. They also have Wifi if you need to make a phone call.

  2. The camp is close to Hwy 224, and unless you are in sites 7, 8, or 9, where you are closer to the Roaring River, you will likely hear the traffic. I don’t think any sites are out of view from the road. Sites 3, 4, and 5 are on a shelf above the rest of the campground, and your car is parked below, near the toilets, and out of view from your tent area.

    While camping at Site 4, my car window was broken early in the morning of Memorial Day Weekend 2019 – all so a hooplehead could steal my fishing pole. The campground experiences numerous vehicles driving through – checking out the scene, using the toilets, looking for vacancies, etc. But some people are casing out your car. Yes not all people are thieves, but be careful!

    Most of the sites are fairly spacious, flat, and are nested in a nice set of woods with large trees to hang a hammock. But they are quite close to eachother. The Dry Ridge Trail quickly leads into the Roaring River Wilderness.

    Sam, the camp host, was very nice. However the host does not reside at this camp location – another possible reason as to why this location might experience crime.
