    My Foothills Trail map shows campsites at the Laurel Fork Falls, one on the right going toward the Toxaway bridge, one on the left at Canebrake, going toward the bridge, and one at the bridge. There were Boy Scouts heading for the one at the bridge yesterday.

    My understanding is this-
    There are two camping areas at the Devil's Fork State Park, the regular campground, and the boat in camping at Double Springs, across the lake from the campground.
    The area outside the park is the managed by the Andrew Pickens Ranger district of the Sumter National Forest on the SC side and the Nantahala National Forest on the NC side. You can camp anywhere in the Andrew Pickens district but only designated spots in the Nantahala. The Toxaway area is just over the line in NC but those are designated spots.

    From http://www.fs.fed.us/r8/fms/sumter/r...AP_Camping.php
    "The Andrew Pickens Ranger District has a wide range of camping opportunities from developed campgrounds to primitive sites.

    Primitive camping is allowed at least 50 feet from the trail, 50 feet from any stream and .25 mile from the road."

    FWIW, there are plenty of stealth sites around, but it might be worth a phone call.

    I should be receiving a MacCat ultra this week, too. Hopefully before we leave on Friday for the Foothills trail. Starting at Table Rock and planning on winding up at Whitewater Falls.

    That's great Conan,
    If you've been following this site for long, you know we expect pictures.
    If your's doesn't get there in time, let me know. You may be passing right by my house.

    Have a good trip.
