Level, fenced gravel parking area for the Mellon Valley State Wildlife Area, just off Dike road. Camping permitted by sign. Surrounded by plains and agriculture. Camped on a Friday night in June when nothing else was available nearby. Alone, dark and quiet, save for the occasional passing vehicle on Dike road. There are actually two parking areas, one being down by the river with a much steeper entry. Not bad for an overnight.
