Our last night there we had the interesting experience of dealing with a swarm of flying ants. At first we noticed one or two, then they were absolutely everywhere. It started in the afternoon and by night fall they were all trying to find something to dig into or hide under.It seemed there were hundreds under every piece of firewood we had collected. Only one person was bitten by one when he accidentally partially smashed it. I'm not sure how often this happens, but it was definitely something worth seeing once.

To find this campsite, follow paved Quartzville Road for 28 miles from Highway 20, it will be on your left. It's almost directly across from Forest Road 1142. This site is perfect for a large gathering, or an easy camp spot if you're exploring the Quartzville Back Country Byway. It was a fairly high traffic area so if you're expecting any degree of solitude find a different place.
