Motorhomes - Ring Mill Campground

The campsite pads at the Ring Mill are in dire need of new gravel.  Most of what's left has reverted back to a natural surface.

Motorhome & Low Clearance Vehicles - Ring Mill Campground

Shortly east of OH-26 on Jerecho Low Gap Road is a ford. Motorhome's and low clearance vehicles may wish to avoid this by approaching the Ring Mill Campground by way of the Village of New Matamoras in Washington County beginning with Brownsville Road.

Motorhomes - Hune Bridge Campground

Those with motorhomes should avoid Cullen Road between the Hune Bridge NFS Campground and OH-260 due to a very steep hill on a gravel surface.  The road might look improved for gravel, but it may not have enough space for such large vehicles to pick up enough speed?

This road is reached from T35 & OH-260 near Road Fork Section - Buckeye Trail (North Country concurrent), Point 26.

The weight limit on Hune Bridge (covered) from OH-26 is 5 tons, or 10,000lbs.  Class C motorhomes have been known to make it through its width. As always, please be cognizant of your vehicle's weight.

Whipple Section - Spur to Lane Farm (Red Marked Trail)

Rebuilding the spur to Lane Farm is a long term project and it will be white blazed. As of 06/15/2015, it's only passable to NFS land on Laurel Hill Rd/ Twp Hwy 302.  The 10/2010 edition of the Whipple Section map shows a red marked trail, just east of Point 07.  The markers might look like the trail immediately goes off road and is routed through private property from that point and along the Little Muskingum River, but it's not the route.  To clarify the map, the spur is routed on Laurel Hill Rd/ Twp Hwy 302.  The NFS land is known as the "Patterson Tract."  It's a permit corn and grazing area, so at the middle of a 180° turn in the road, there is a brown colored, wooden fence with a gate.  That fence has a stills built in to the north of the gate so that hikers can pass through it.
