Description

Lower Forge Campground is anything but that―low on camping charisma. Located between Batsto River and Batona Trail, the campground's primitive campsites offer easy access to both geographic features.

Hipcamper Topher

Lower Forge is my favorite campsite on the Batona Trail, but there are some things that are incorrect. First, there is NO potable water at the site. The campsite is on the Mullica River but you will need to filter or boil the river water. Second, you cannot drive into the site. It is illegal to do so. There is a dirt road that will get you to within a quarter mile or so, but you have to hike in or boat in from the river.

Hipcamper Ed

Topher, LFC is located on the Batsto River, not the Mullica. Google Maps has mislabeled the Batsto as the Mullica. At LFC, the Mullica is actually a little less than a mile west of the Batsto.

No potable water as Topher stated. There are also no picnic table(s). There is a latrine, but be careful in the warmer weather as wasps like to build hives inside.
