Could someone please tell me what to expect regarding the camping at Elizabeth Furnace? It says "pay" but that really doesn't help me plan.

Thanks

Here is the Elizabeth Furnace Recreation Area website, which provides a good amount of details:

http://www.fs.fed.us/...zabeth_furnace.shtml

And if you look on ths topo map of the area, you will see two campgrounds in the lower left section of the map:

If you don't like campgrounds, then depending on the spot, most of the area is within the George Washington National Forrest.

As it says on their website: "national forest lands are open to camping anywhere, except for areas specifically closed and posted to camping."

http://www.fs.fed.us/.../camping/index.shtml

This site lists both campqrounds and the rules for "dispersed camping.

Thanks again,
