Camp Drake Bridge
Posted March 5, 2015, by Thomas E. Scott Jr (rgsry20 [at] gmail [dot] com)

The notation says this bridge is open to pedestrian traffic - which it is - however, it is in Camp Drake Boy Scout Camp and is only open for the Scouts, not the general public. It spans the Salt Creek and is part of the pathway from the main camp area to "Poncho," the boating area.
