Creekside Campgrounds - The Sylamore Creek National Scenic River Corridor offers three wonderful campgrounds in the forest next to Sylamore Creek. Blanchard Springs Caverns Campgrounds at Point 24, Gunner Pool Campground at Point 25, and Barkshed Recreation Area at Point 26/27. Blanchard and Gunner have picnic tables, fire rings, and lantern hooks, but no water or electrical hookups. Both Gunner and Blanchard have several creekside sites. They do have running water and bathrooms. Blanchard also has hot showers. Barkshed has only one site close to the creek, the others are up on a ridge about 60 feet above the creek. Barkshed is the most primitive but is also the most beautiful. Barkshed has a bathroom and a pavilion with tables. Both Gunner and Barkshed are on a first-come-first served basis. Blanchard will take reservations.

Primitive Camping - There are hundreds of places you can set up your own camp in the National Forest. There are a few rules to observe. First, dogs must be kept tied up. Do not let them run loose. Second, even in the middle of nowhere, you are required to keep sensibly quiet after 10pm. Yes, the forest is patrolled at night. If you camp in a Wildlife Management Area there are more regulations, and maybe a fee. Leave No Trace applies. By law if you bring it in, you are required to bring it out. No littering.

For questions on primitive camping call the Mountain View Ranger Station.
