While this is called a `rest area`, this is a secluded forest campsite some distance from the highway.

The campground is the clearing at the end of a 400 metre track that heads into the Girard State Forest, and is typical for camping in a State Forest-- there is a drop toilet, an intermittent stream nearby, plenty of tall trees remaindered from long-forgotten logging operations, and the requisite large spiders.
