Comers Rock Campground & Picnic Area located
Rogers National Recreation Area offers 10 camping units
with parking and picnic tables. Several trails run through Comers
Rock Campground, including Little Dry Run Trail, the extensive
Iron Mountain Trail, and Unaka Nature Trail. This campground
sits amidst old-growth mature hardwood forests interspersed
with rocky outcrops. Representative eastern hardwood breeding
birds are common here, including wood thrush, and eastern wood-pewee.
In addition, scarlet tanager, cedar waxwing, black-throated
green and hooded warblers can be seen flitting through the limbs.
A scenic overlook can be accessed by a short hike from the campground,
or by driving west of the campground area to the base of an
overlook just down the road. The overlook offers a picturesque
view of Elk Creek Valley. In the summer, turkey vulture soar
on thermals at eye-level. This can be prime spot for viewing
broad-winged hawks during fall migration.

turn right on FR 57 and continue west for 3.7 miles to Comers
Rock Campground. (CAUTION: FR 57 is a winding dirt road that
should not be driven in low clearance vehicles after wet weather.
