Eleven Point River

The Eleven Point National Scenic River was established in 1968.  The river is fed year-round by its numerous springs, including Greer Spring, which is the second largest in the state.  The Eleven Point river is not as fortunate as the other spring fed rivers in the state, which have plenty of gravel bars for camping, but it makes up for this by beautifully cutting its course through narrow steep bluffs and forested valleys.  Although the gravel bars are more scarce than others, there are a number of float camps located along the steep banks of this river.  These camps are cut into flat forested areas along the river, most provide fire pits, benches, and outdoor toilets.  The Eleven Point River not only provides stable, quick moving, clean clear water but also has some of the best trout fishing in the state.
