Q: Does anyone recommend a place to camp or fish near this trail? -KBarb
A: The closest campground that I am aware of is Hootontown. It may be a 5-10 minute drive from the park. It is just a short drive down hwy M. I have never stayed there since I am local. I know on the weekends the river bank can get a little trashy in the summer... The campground does get decent reviews though. The other campground I know about is James River Campground. That is going to be maybe 15 minutes away from the park. I have never been to this one. Either way you will be driving on fairly quite highways. I would not recommend riding a bike on hwy M. It is busy and fast enough to be dangerous.
A: there is a koi camp ground not very far away, its not anything special but it is cheap and easy.
