There are 30 camping spots up for grabs at Cedar Hill’s primitive campgrounds. Be prepared for just a bit of a hike; the campsites are only accessible from the Duck Pond Trail or Talala Trail, which both shoot off from South Spine Road. Fires aren’t permitted in these areas and there’s no running water, but compost toilets are available for use nearby. ###
