primitive camping? sounds terrrrrrible.......

jk. i love primitive camping.

i never really understood the appeal of anything less. (certainly not people who think being in an RV is camping. i mean... good on you for traveling, but that's not camping.)

If it rains they may close. If it rains while you're there, good luck going up some of the trails. Especially 93B.
my concern with the ATVs isn't that they'll come along and hit me or anything, but more that some isolation would be rad.

Yes, there are dry trails. But there are more mud trails than I care to deal with. I'm still trying to wash out all of the mud I gathered from there last month.
ennnnhhh....... i really appreciate the heads-up on this. i don't mind taking Crawley through some mud, especially if it's between point A and point B... but driving in the mud just for the sake of it is pretty much the opposite of exciting for me.
no offense to anyone who enjoys mudplay, of course. it's just really not my thing.

I never worry about the ATV's on the trail because my jeep will always win. I meant there was only one occasion when some were night riding and woke us up.

I have a jeep...and it is modified...I win.

If you don't mind getting to point A to point B you will be fine. There are by passes for all the deep stuff. Durhamtown isn't the mud pit everyone makes it out to be. That being said I think there are better parks to go to.
