Fishing Rock Creek

Great Meadows camp sits along the banks of Rock Creek, a Kentucky designated Wild River and is stocked with fish almost monthly. A short hike along the Sheltowee Trace takes one to Hemlock Grove, a stately picnic area. The campground can serve as a point of entry for the John Muir Trail and the old homesteads found along the tributaries of the Big South Fork.
