“Great. Extremely remote ”

Reviewed Sep 02, 2018

Overall Rating

Had a great night hammock camping, was a good place to stop on my way down to Georgia. There are a few marked sites about a half a mile down High Rock Road (the dirt road you will travel down) but I continued further and found a different spot.

Reviewed Oct 23, 2017

Overall Rating
