Wilson's Creek is amazing! It is beautiful!!! Gray trout fishing and kayaking. There isn't any camping except at Betsy's Ole Country's store. It is a nice small campground with grey clean bathroom facilities. Lots of trails to hike as well!

Wilson Creek is a remote area, showcasing a beautiful wild and scenic river. The Wilson Creek Visitor Center is a showcase of the history of the area. The Visitor Center also houses a wonderful topo map of the Wilson Creek watershed area. A must visit!!!
