“Gorgeous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

There is a lot of beautiful scenery in the area. The Bonita River and the forest. There are also a lot of great hiking trails and things that can be enjoyed by children.

“So large! So many things to do! So many polace to visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

We stayed at the Along the River RV Park & Campground ( located on Bonita River) and stayed with two of the most hospitable, friendly, generous, helpful folks we have met to date! (We have met some wonderful people so this is an extra-HUGE compliment to Donna and Barry)! We have visited the park so man times, from Bonita Lake to the Trails, and so many stops that there is something for everyone at Lincoln National Forrest. :-)

Take a hike or just enjoy the view, the forest is so peaceful and beautiful. Some trails dogs are not allowed, so read all signs before you set out!
