Civilian Conservation Corps workers constructed the campground, picnic area, and pavilion here in 1936. An exhibit of a hand- hewed log is adjacent to the picnic area. This campground is the place to be if you’re into hiking. You can access Old Growth Trail, a 1.1-mile interpretive walk that goes through Hearts Content Scenic Area—a 200-plus- acre virgin forest of 300- to 400-year-old trees. There’s also a 6.4-mile cross-country ski trail. And if you want to get more adventurous, the 8,663-acre Hickory Creek Wilderness surrounds the campground and offers some wonderful opportunities to explore where only foot travel is permitted.
