Stokes State Forest: Steam Mill Camping Area Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Steam Mill Camping Area, set back in the woods 5 miles from US 206, is the most remote and primitive of the Stokes State Forest campgrounds. It’s also the least popular—meaning it’s also the most likely to have an open site even during high season. Sites are wide open, with little or no foliage to act as privacy barriers. But you’re unlikely to have many neighbors, at least of the human variety.
If you really want to ensure a bit of privacy, sites 207 and 209 are set back from the campground loop a fair distance and are surrounded by tall hemlocks. Wildlife casually strolls nearby as you set up your tent. Trailers ﬁt here too but are more suited to Lake Ocquittunk (see page 44). Remember that bears live in the area, so use bearproof containers, and never take food into or near your tent. See the Introduction for more information on how to camp safely in bear country."
