Little Orleans

Mile 140.8 - This is a rather significant spot as it's almost the last spot accessible by major roads until Cumberland.  To get here, take exit 68 from Highway 68 and head south on Orleans Rd for six miles.  To get to parts of the canal upstream, you need to take windy little roads, some with stream crossings. 

Because of its strategic location, Bills bar has become a landmark but it recently burnt down. He's hoping to rebuild soon and the soda machines still work! The sign advertises beer, groceries and canoes, everything you would need for a day on the canal.

Just down from Bill's Bar, there's campsites for both group and individual camping, a boat launch and some parking.  15 Mile Creek runs nearby.
