We love to boondock and cringe at the thought of paying for a campground just to sleep overnight when travelling cross country but the further east you get the harder it is to find good spots. We are not really fans of the Walmart or Truck Stop stays. We found this state conservation area on the map and called the office to insure it was open for dry camping and were told it is open all year. There was a fairly big open area that could accomodate a couple larger rigs and 4 or 5 smaller back in sites in some pite trees for medium or smaller trailers or class B / C. Be careful on the drive in as our GPS had us travelling some very narrow "jeep trail" roads and we had to back out of a guys driveway about 1/4 mile with our 5th wheel in 4wd to push the camper up the dirt hill without digging in but if you follow the asphalt roads any size rig can get there fine. We found deer parts in the area and it looks like this spot is used to field dress deer during hunting season.
