 Knopper’s Ford, situated along Sugar Creek is a semi-primitive developed camping and day use facility built by the CCC.  It is accessible by passenger car or low clearance vehicle.  Knopper’s Ford is popular with Off Highway Vehicle (OHV) and Equestrian enthusiasts, as it is a very short distance from the fabulous Sugar Creek Multi Use Recreation Trail.  Knopper’s Ford offers a remote semi-primitive experience with limited amenities.  It does not have potable water but does have toilet facilities.
