A small group of us (maybe 4) from southern Illinois plan on overlanding the LBL the weekend of August 10th. None of us have EVER been. Any recommendations of where to enter, exit, camp, etc?? We hope to camp near water to fish and swim if thats possible. And of course, any and all are welcome to join us. Be a great opportunity for some of us to meet up and exchange info.
We use to go to Turkey Bay to off road our bikes and 4 wheelers. But you have to pay a fee to enter. If your camping just drive down the TRACE its in between the Lakes lots of places down there. If your looking for an inexpensive hotel try the Relax Inn near Kutawa. Nothing fancy but a good clean room on one end of the Trace. There are a lot of old roads there to explore.
