Yeah, it's a shame that Eggleston is off limits. I found some decent shots of it here... ... index.html

Yeah- I've heard a lot of great things about this glen. Maybe someday I'll be allowed to photograph it.

I am going to shoot this glen soon. The owner is a Mr. Yunis and he indeed does own camp Arey. I myself used to hike this glen as a kid every summer. There were rumors that a couple of boy scouts fell to their deaths there. I cannot confirm nor deny this but I would be willing to bet that this is why mister Yunis does not want visitors. (Liability as mentioned) I was a property renter at camp Arey when the Yunis' family bought the park and I am not now, if that tells you anything. I have a friend at the park who is going to "get us in". More like waterfall UrbEx I am sure..

Again, this is private property..enter at your own risk..

For those folks that are having trouble...this might help you:
