I'm leaving soon to Daniel Boone national forest area. Looking for any suggestions for camping. I'm looking for something quiet but good scenery also. Any info would help , I'm not that familiar with the area.
Thank you .
Really need to know if you want to camp in the backcountry (overnight backpacking) or camp at a site where you park your car.
If just car-camping, do you plan to do some hiking as well?
Red River Gorge & Natural Bridge State Park have a variety of camping opportunites, and great hiking with fanatstic geologic formations. But if you're looking for a more extended backpacking experience, Big South Fork offers similar scenery in a much larger area.
Aside from the Clifty Wilderness section of RRG, you can pretty much see all of it in a series of dayhikes. If you don't like established car-camping sites (people, noise) you can park your car at any number of roadside pull-offs within RRG and walk in a short distance to camp (must purchase permit for car, probably still $5/day at the Shell station in Slade).
