I have just recently... Garden of Gods is great as stated by Chills.. Istayed also at HOG ROCK which is just down to the road... Check out Shawnees web site we used it for some day trips & runs while there.. Also take the fairy over to KY at Cave in Rock nice ridin if ya take a bike.... and if ya smoke or have freinds that do take cash and load up on cheap smokes......in KY they have drive thrus
+1 on Garden of the Gods. Just don't drink from the waterfall no matter how good it looks. Trust me on that one. Gross... Giant City has some good spots if you know where to look too. During the Summer make sure to check out Devil's Kitchen #9 for a secluded swimming hole. There is some nice riding on the back roads out there too.
thanks guys, looks like garden of the gods for the win. Lows in the low 30's should make camping interesting Haven't done any cold weather stuff since kettle moraine in january when I was a boyscout. We're leaving wednesday night or thursday morning. Will post pictures when I get back friday night.
