5 sites · RVs, Tents30 acres · Monroe, OK
Learn more about this land:Gorgeous creek forest camp @ the top of a hill spanning 30acres of mixed forest w/ trails near beautiful Sugarloaf mountain! Bring your pets, hiking boots, telescopes, scooters, go-karts, atvs, mountain bikes, etc. Pan for gold at the creek! We haven't struck yet, but you might! Climb trees with gusto -- many huge oaks here that I climbed as a child, following my cats, and then realizing they were better at tree-climbing than I was. Lots of cool campfire sites in this heavily forested area. Enough open space to see the starry expanse of the firmament w/ hardly any light pollution. Near local lakes, rivers, and gorgeous Talimena Drive only 30 mins away.

While in town, the site is near the library and minor shopping. Local Ahart's beer wine & groceries are great attractions. The Ozark National Forest is an easy walk - only a half mile away.
