Cool place and big property. It has some nice spots near the entrance, very primitive, but wide open with lots of space.

Nice property. An honest map would be helpful, but it was a really great primitive site.

Unexpected and awesome!
"Panther crossing" has you completely secluded. Google maps gets you pretty close, but if you see the road sign warning "Panther Crossing" you've gone just a bit too far.
You're all alone out there, which is great. That also means, bring whatever you need to camp. It's large, well kept land, but that's it. Trees, grassland, a small lake, has it all. I'm sure plenty of critters live out there! That also means bring firewood, pack out your own garbage.
After you're on the property, there's a dirt road encircling and leading to the campsites. I made it fine in a kia soul, but I wouldn't recommend driving too deep, if your car has low clearance. After a big rain, there could be a bit of mud.
Overall, I recommend. I'm also looking forward to visiting again someday!

Panther CrossingBeing such a large property, you have your choice of several landscapes to set up in.Lots of small wood around to get a fire going, but bring your own logs for anything longer lasting.If you pass this sign on the road, you've gone a bit too far.
