Hiking, Camping, and Ohio Parks

We left the kids with granma and went to Wildcat Hollow in Wayne National Forest and thought it was great. Didn’t see another human being the entire time. It was nice and very easy though we moved sites a lot. I have no problem with backpacking and taking everything with me from campsite to campsite, but I would also like options where I can set up a camp, hike out and then return to the site in the evening I’m pretty sure you’re not supposed to drink the water but it was so clear and cool that it looked like you amost could. The friend of my husband that had suggested it said that the mining had made it bad. Mining can leave toxic heavy metals in the water table that cannot be treated with backpacking equipment. We cached some water about halfway and didn’t have a problem. The northern section of the backpacking loop was a bit over grown and I got a couple of ticks. But we saw nobody for over 9 hours. Got pretty close to a deer on the trail. I’m talking about the portion that is not around the lake but up by the remnants of the fire tower.
