Nathan Buckley checked himself into Vimy House in Kew four days after the grand final with an infected, dangerously swollen knee and an injury above the shoulders that intravenous antibiotics could not fix.

Canton Daily Ledger: Fulton County Guide
Well, we may not find too many truly "wild" places but there are a few places where we can escape. In this piece we will highlight some camping areas.

Let's begin with the nearest to Canton residents: Canton Lake. The lake campground is becoming a popular once again. Numerous weekends have found it pretty full. Fishing in the lake is indeed improving and this could be one of the determining factors to the rise in campers.
