Trail Overview

Fiddlers Creek 17 is a gravel road with several washed-out areas, and creek crossings. It parallels several creeks with lots of areas to swim, fish, or crawdad fish. The Ouachita Recreational Trail is just south of this location so camping along this route would put you close to the trailhead. There are deep water crossings so I wouldn't suggest a car on this road. There are several campsites some of which had a creek running right next to them however these are dispersed with no restrooms or running water. Some cell service is attainable in certain areas along the road but isn't great. Lots of trees for shade and the chance to see some wildlife including wild turkeys.
