  • ♿ I went for the Jackson Creek Trail because I heard it was handicapped accessible. Turns out it is only partially accessible. There are some tree roots that I made it over in my manual chair. Eventually the path went from paved to gravel and I found it impassable. I had to turn around. But it was still throughly enjoyable. Handicapped accessible bathrooms by the main office.
  • Beautiful state forest. Lots of fun and exciting backwoods roads. The dispersed camping sites are really nice to get away from everything.
  • Love this place! Yellowwood is all over brown county. There is a large patch of it practically in my back yard. Even though they logged it a couple years ago it's still a great place to find mushrooms. This area has no marked trails but there are other parts that do.
  • Cranes, fish, frogs, rare wildflowers and hiking abound here! Been visiting this place since I stumbled upon in back in the 1980s. There is primitive camping and so much wildlife it will amaze you. First thing we saw when parking down at the Dam/spillway was a HUGE crane. The roads were recently upgraded which makes this place a little more accessible. This is a gem in the raw.
  • Camped for many years this is by far the most relaxing and peaceful sites I've ever had the pleasure of staying at.
