Camden DNR

 

Visited here in 2008 & 2012. The park has several nice trails, especially the one along the creek. The lower campground has minimal privacy. The upper campground is better, with the best sites in the electrip loop (probably the only time I'll ever write that). To the south of the main park is the Brawner Lake area with a fishing pier, boat launch and small picnic area.
