    You can always find eat/get groceries, the locals have to do the same. A Google map search found places for eat/get groceries all around Chippokes, on the South side of the river. You may not find a Walmart or Target near by, but that's part of the point of camping, to get away from civilization.

    Right. I was just hoping someone more familiar with the area could point me to some favorite spots. Thanks though.

    Fortunately, the State Park provided helpful and current information. Turns out, it’s kind of a hike to get groceries-15 miles along country roads. This kind of info helps me better plan my trip. I hope someone else can find this helpful to them.

    That’s a good idea,but with 3 teenage boys and a weeks worth of camping I would have had to rent a UHaul to bring enough groceries with us, lol!

    Does Dollar General sell food?

    Really wish I had seen your post earlier. We camped there this summer for a wedding and my BIL said it would be close to the wedding site. Not exactly “close” to much at all and wasn’t close to wedding but I thought it seemed really nice. We didn’t have much time to spend there due to wedding stuffed. Also, it stormed while we were there.
