you have to have a pass to use the trails, not very expensive $10 or something like that. i can not remember. since it is a national forrest some of the stuff will be so deserted then you will drive by someones house. Love the area.
they have a lot of information at the rangers station. where to camp and what not. me and the ex just found one of the spots and we were the only people there all weekend. see one truck drive by.

sorry i can't be anymore help. but it sure was fun

you've got to buy a day pass for $5 a day or $35 for a season pass. I've been about 5 times in the past year and a half and have always camped on the trails which you are allowed to do. but its not guaranteed to be comfortable. There are also camping spots somewhere around there with spots for tents, grilles and i believe a bathhouse near it. I like camping on the trails because you're on the trail when you get up in the morning and can go wheeling immediately. there is also a campsite for rv's and stuff somewhere near by. As for a map you get those where you get your day pass.

I like camping at some of the camps with the shower rooms. after a full day and night of wheeling having a shower before bed is not over rated. Its a great park to go wheeling in and lots of different challenges, the log bridges are always fun. You can get the passes from the gas station that's right in front of the park, Eldrado outpost i think is the name (they also have air and good food)

It was about 5-6 hours from Norflok so 5-6 from richmond. Good times for newer Jeepers and experienced alike.

yes they can..... URE is a blast..... as for camping, i prefer arrowhead campground..... you get a grill/firepit, nice flat pad for your tent, power (good for a fan in the summer) a bath house AND toilets..... and good concrete parking...... which is awesome if you break on the trail......nice place to lay under the rig..... it's relatively cheap also..... you can usually fir 2-3 tents on a site. you can be on the trails in 5-10 minutes (down dirt roads) from there....

here's a couple links to some pics we took there.....
