Live less than a mile away, Great deer and turkey hunting. Lots of creeks and wilderness camping. Has a new visitor center on Hwy 21 about 3 miles north of Clarksville.

“Home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

I spend a lot of time in this area looking for places to hunt, fish and just relax. Dirt roads are inviting to me so 4 wheel drive is my security blanket and used when necessary.

“Good place to visit but come prepared”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

Main Forest and trail options were huge. However unlike other outdoor parks, on-the-spot camping information and maps/directions were not readily available. Gas stations are old and spread out far from each other. Most importantly, Diesel is just as in demand in this place as Gasoline, so one can easily mistake one fuel pump for another when fueling a vehicle (so be vigilant when fueling in this area). Nice quiet hiking spots though.

“A Rugged Retreat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2012

A beautiful change of scenery from Texas. It was quiet, secluded, and a rugged breath of fresh air from everyday stresses.
