Backpack to Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area

The Daniel Boone National Forest spans north and south across Kentucky, narrowing to a small triangular area on the border into Tennessee, known as the "Big South Fork" (National River and Recreation Area). This area condenses a lot of the attractions of the entire forest, up through Kentucky, into a small, accessible area. Due to the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area's  remote location, the isolation I look for while planning a backpacking trip is much more available. There are options for accessible car camping and sight seeing that bring me back with my extended family, grandparents and toddlers. Facilities are always well maintained and welcoming faces abound. Love the Big South Fork! The 3 hour drive from Louisville, Nashville, Chattanooga, Asheville, lots of other metro areas is very worth it when looking for that extended weekend camping trip!
