About Hunters Camp
The Atkinson Ridge Hunters camp is located on the north end of the Grouse Management Area on Township Road 5 at the fire tower. The campground offers latrines, picnic tables, and fire rings. Sites are available on a first come, first-served basis. The Hunters Camp is operational one day before the start of squirrel season until one day after the close of the grouse season. It is operational again 14 days before the start of spring wild turkey season and closes the day after the season ends.
