To provide a car-free camping experience while protecting this unique resource, vehicles will be prohibited from this area. A parking area is provided with a short walk to the campsites.
Additionally, Mohawk Trail State Forest now has three small group campsites in addition to the large group site. The small group campsites provide an opportunity for a minimum of 10 people and a maximum of 15 people to share the same space while visiting beautiful Mohawk Trail State Forest.
