Property gate is located on the east side of McConnell Road. Drive in and take an immediate left.  Stay on the trail, and drive slow past the pinetree grove located directly on your right. Park your car along the north side of that grove.
It is a very short hike up to the hardwood grove where the primitive campsite is.
Beautiful site!
Once you park your car, you will see the walking trail right in front of you which leads up to the hardwood grove campsite.
It is about a four minute walk up to the campsite. It's a lovely area.
