These cliffs deep in the state forest once provided flint for ancient Native Americans. The pieces of flint were made into arrowheads, spearheads and knives.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
July 31 Horse trails
The trails where nice pretty well marked. The only thing is it would be nice to have a map that showed the horse trails so you knew where you were at.
September 7 Horsemans paradise by Susie
Really enjoyed camping and riding at the Harrison-Crawford State forrest, excellent campground, the only complaint is not being able to bring your own wood, nice trails,would love to see the miles put on the trails under the trail number, so you would know how far from camp you are, would really help us new timers. A better map would help also. DNR officers were very nice and polite, no hassles.
May 30 Horrible by MuD
These people threw us out of their park while we were cleaning up trash. Horrible campout. DNR were like Nazis, stalking patrons with night vision goggles and hassling people. If you are an out doors nature lover STAY AWAY! We were quiet and respectful. Unreal. Bite the hand that feeds and become the hand that takes. we have been doing conservation work for 20 years and we have never had a more insulting experience.
