Ridge Campground is a small campground with only
10 newly renovated campsites. A 5 mile drive to the south brings you to
Blue Ridge Reservoir, an 8 mile pocket of water that is
both tranquil and inviting. Rainbow, brown and brook trout
all ply this body of water and the relaxing surroundings
make the trip here well worth it.
If you are one who likes
to view wildlife, this is a great place to camp. Commonly seen
are elk, bear, deer and eagles.
Rock crossing trail cuts
across both the north and south fingers of the reservoir
for those looking for a moderate hike.
