Carley DNR

Visited here in 2007 & 2008. The park is famous for its Virginia Bluebells. The campground has large sites with most being private. This is a small park with a nice picnic area and trails along the river.

The bad river crossing. The land straight ahead is in between two areas of water to cross. Though the farthest area didn't have anything to walk on, the water was quite shallow.
