The trails and campgrounds at Middle Fork State Fish & Wildlife Area are used primarily by equestrians, but don’t let that scare you away. The two times I’ve been there I’ve seen few riders, none of whom were camping, and the only evidence I saw (or smelled) that horses had been there was in the parking lot by the campground. There’s one little-used section of the campground that’s just for tent campers, plus secluded hike-in sites that most visitors never see. If you don’t mind going without a shower, this is a quiet alternative to the busier nearby Kickapoo State Park.
