    Only been to WR once and several years ago. Is there a good place to tent camp?? Taking my family and grandson, so I don't want to camp where others might be have a little too good of a time afterhours....

    It will have to be pick up truck and motorcycle trailer accessable.

    again, pick one...come in from combs (hwy 16) you'll go thru Mill Creek..lottsa deer/atv camp spots there..it's also populated on weekends with folks who wanna ride also..come in off hwy 23, i suggest you turn on West Fly Gap road (at the summit, there is a parking area and a pond on the west side of hwy 23)..follow fly gap road and pick a spot. This will be a bit more secluded and private than Mill Creek but you are in the same area..continue on fly gap road you will come to a BIG intersection called 4 corners..make a right (north) and that will take you to Mill Creek..from fly gap rd, continue straight (west) that will take you to White Rock Mtn (overlook)..just below White Rock Mtn to the south is Shores Lake..lottsa places to camp and see.

    Just for what it's worth, there's a BJEC enduro this Sunday(3/22) at White Rock. You didn't mention when you were planning to go so I thought I'd just throw that in.

    sure, in the mill creek area..if you camp up at white rock, you'll be further away from any running water
