This place is in the middle of nowhere..right where I like to be. Nothing but heavy woods, endless hiking, trout steams, and an occasional pipe you'll see coming straight out the side of the mountain with cold, clean water running out of it where you can drink straight from the pipe. I happened to have camped there on a Fourth of July one year where we came from our campsite down into the little town of Downsville, and experienced something just like in the movie Doc Hollywood.
