Correction on the description: Having no developed campgrounds does not mean you should take that as an infinite number of camping options. "Anywhere you drop your pack" isn't the best advice to give for a National Preserve. I suggest visiting NPS.gov and reading the camping regulations or visit the rangers at the visitor's center if you're dropping by. There ARE rules.
I have canoed down Village Creek & camped in the Big Sandy Creek Unit. It's a great stretch of water w/some decent obstacles along the way. The sugar white sandbars are plentiful & are perfect for stopping for breaks & are acceptable camping spots. BUG SPRAY is a must. Campfires are allowed unless there is a burn ban. It's a great place to get away from everything!
