Spruce Knob Lake Campground is an absolute hidden gem. If you're looking for remote and beautiful camping and hiking, this is an amazing place. We stayed in one of the 'walk-in' campsites, and there were no other campers within eyeshot. We took the Seneca Creek trail and it was achingly beautiful with mysterious shady groves of evergreens interspersed with fields of spring wildflowers and waterfalls. Will definitely return. This is also a great place for fishing enthusiasts, since the lake and streams are well-stocked by the state with trout and other species.
