Very nice place to take a walk and enjoy the wilderness
Haha, if you are looking for the walk of your life then look no further. Jones and Salters Lake (from what I understand) are accessible by driving. However, I found it more pleasing to walk along the trails leading from Jones to Salters Lake. It really is a beautiful area, but I would strongly recommend bringing out a good bit of water and sunblock if you plan on going for a hike.
Great place to visit lots of wonderful wildlife and game land
While visiting White Lake, NC I was looking for a place that I could take my dogs and let them run off of the leash. I noticed the signs for Bladen State Forest on hwy 701 and decided to give it a shot and I’m glad I did! It is very secluded, I visited three times in two days and never seen another person there. Even though I drive a 4x4 truck, the sand roads in and through the forest are packed tight enough that a regular car or minivan should have little to no problem getting through. There is tons of dense pinewood forest that you can pull into and let your dogs out to run and play and the ground is covered in pine needles which in my opinion makes it easier to spot snakes! My dogs had a great time and there was no one around to bother us. So if you are in the white lake area and looking for a place to run your dogs give this place a try you and your dogs will love it!
Awesome place. Primitive camping is cool and the guy Aaron at the park office is a genuinely nice guy. I already have plans to go back.
