Description

This is an area just down the road from the state park. very pretty parking at the end of the road with shady pine trees surrounded by water, and red clay soil. also a boat launch with $5 per day parking. the sheriffs like to drive around this area. l asked one if overnight parking was restricted and he said no. clearly they don't get many car campers here because he thought it was a weird question I think. it's such a rural area with so many accesses to the water, as well as nearby national Forest there's no lack of places to park in the region. I asked him where I could park where the law enforcement wouldn't come check on me or knock on my window, since they love to do that even when it's not illegal to park overnight. he told me probably nobody would bother me if I parked in the little dirt road off to the left side by the industrial area after the boat launch, just before you get to the end of the peninsula. so I did sleep there and nobody came by. although I did wake up to a car infested with ants, and there's a bit of noise coming from whatever the industrial stuff is. all in all a really gorgeous place to park with swimming too. no mosquitoes whatsoever in September 2021. medium cell phone reception, a little difficult to use as a hotspot, but no problems with the internet on phone itself. there may be a sink with drinkable water in the bathroom at the boat launch, i forget, but the toilets are definitely flush.

I ended up just past this spot at the end of the road and stayed for two nights. A few cars and fishermen during the day. There are so many state forest roads and you can pull into any that are open.

Report Check-In

Woke up to a park ranger rapping on my window telling me I had to leave immediately. There are no signs, she said “they can’t put signs everywhere”. She also said you are not allowed to car camp in the boat ramp area even if you pay the $5. Was in a van that is not stealth. Apparently this spot it is private government property. The state park down the road is very nice though.

Really nice spot. Worth the detour from I-20 to camp here.
