Can anyone give me any info on some of the campgrounds and public hunting areas in Athens County? I'm mainly interested in bowhunting somewhere around the 2nd week in November.

Check out Zaleski State Forest! We will be there with a big group at that same time. We will be staying at the Lake Hope cabins and some at the campgrounds. If you are interested in hooking up with us, you are more than welcome. Most of the guys going have been hunting there for about ten years!

dow lake is located in strouds run which is about 1 mile or less from athens as the crow flies.it has a primitive style campground and you can hunt right out of.parts of the wayne is within walking distance too.probably light pressure during bowseason as many don,t know about the wayne area there and its tricky getting into.

What would be the closest campground with a shower house? I've been through Stouds Run campground and it looks pretty nice but when I come for a week at a time I would prefer to take hot shower every couple of days. And you don't even want to know about some of the guys I hunt with.:eek:
