Big South Fork Info
Directions Bandy Creek is a challenge to get to (the riding is worth it though). Accessing Bandy Creek from the east (off I-75) through Oneida on 297 requires climbing a 13 degree slope with switchbacks, etc. Big rigs could have a problem unless you have plenty of power. An option is to come in from US 127 through Jamestown. From Jamestown, go east (north) on 154 then east on 297 to the camp.
