The campsite is named in honor of Scott Devlin. A professional pilot and aircraft builder, Scott was a Tennessee native who loved the mountains, forests and streams of America. A true adventurer at heart, but always ready to help another, Scott died at the age of 33 in an air crash. He would have loved camping here.

Access to the campsite is by a set of wooden stairs. Follow signs to the camping area, 100 feet away. If the campsite is occupied, an “overflow” camping location in a grassy field is available on site.
