Really missed being out yesterday. Rest is important, though. I hope all of you are having a good spring!

Hey friends, need some help. I want to plan a weekend getaway to LBL this fall and want to do some dispersed camping but on the lake shore, preferably something near a dirt road that I can drive fairly close or right out on the shore. Anybody know any good spots? Or maybe if someone has a recommendation for one of the basic campsites. General help would be appreciated. It's such a huge area and I've only driven through once or twice.

Here's my wish list:

Lake shore
Paddling access nearby
Hiking Trails would be a plus
Large enough for several tents

Thanks in advance! Feel free to send a pm if you prefer

All very nice!
It always amazes me in those last seconds during sunset, how quickly the light changes everything. I just keep shooting.
Same thing during sunrise.
The most emotional images come during those few minutes of the day.

You must live in my neck of the woods... (Irvine? My place is near College Hill)

I'm at that point in my backpacking life that I find myself enjoying familiar spots, wanting to return again and again to those special places.  The more I hike, the more Hanson's Point calls my name.  Great pictures.  I haven't been since January, will have to make my way there soon.

I'm going to take my kids to the part of the Sheltowee Trace that feeds into Van Hook Falls. There are some good creeks and small falls about a mile from the road and a couple level campsites.

Thanks, that section of the Sheltowee looks great. Van Hook Falls is gorgeous. Hopefully this area remains a little more pristine than the Red due to its location. Will definitely check that out for my next trip with the kids.

I meant to add a couple other photos, so you did not need to visit the blog unless you really wanted to.

I dropped my oldest at a sleep away camp in Irvine. I realized as I was looking at directions to the camp that I was going to be pretty close to the gorge. I dropped her off at 7 and headed to the gorge to catch the sunset. I grabbed Subway and headed to the end of TRR, left the car about 7:45 and hurried towards Double Arch. The whole time I was hiking, I was swatting horseflies and thinking that I was going to miss the sunset. Luckily, I got to the end of the road with about 10 minutes to spare. It would have been nice at the top of Double Arch, but the view from the end of the road is pretty nice.

There are a couple more photos and a couple panoramas here https://backpackandbeer.blogspot.com/2017/06/summer-solstice-sunset.html

I've never hiked it, but it has been on my list for a couple of years. Please do a trip report if you end up hiking it.

Looks like Breakaway Arch right off of Double Arch Trail.

Yep that's it.  You're up.

Need a little hint?

~100 feet off an official trail.
