Camping here is a real out-of-the-way experience, and it’s well worth the trouble locating it. The six sites within the Piney Mountain Area constitute huge, cleared areas carved from the forest that sit along the unpaved Piney Mountain Road. If the idea of a fire grill, lantern hook, and picnic table means that, in your view, you’re not at all roughing it, you can also camp anywhere in the forest where there are not established sites, provided you have obtained a backcountry permit.
