The eastern Shawnee National Forest boasts some great places for tent campers. Pharaoh Campground at Garden of the Gods is well known for its scenery, Pine Ridge for its beach, and Red Bud for the canyons and streams of nearby Bell Smith Springs. The Shawnee’s easternmost campground, Camp Cadiz, can’t offer any of that. What it does offer, however, is your best chance in the whole Shawnee Forest to camp at an established campground with no one else around. If you’re seeking solitude but still like the convenience of your car, a toilet, and water nearby, Camp Cadiz is a good choice just about any time outside deerhunting season. You may, on occasion, find a neighbor or two camping, but chances are they’ll be just as eager for quiet as you are.
