2003.... we left our jon boat at the mouth of Hazel and packed into Sugar Fork. On Wednesday morning the park service came to tell us that the only part of our boat that was visible was about the last 2 ft of the rear end and the motor sticking out of the water.....................FLOOD !! Water came up so high that it pulled the front end of the boat under. We were locked to a tree and couldn't get unhooked......Had to leave boat and all of our gear at Sugar. Came back on Saturday and got gear, but still couldn't get boat because of the logs and wood debris that sorrounded the boat. Came back a few days later and someone had managed to make it out to the boat and stole the motor............

We had left the boat there before with no problems ...use case hardened chain and hide gas tank in woods...

...........................BUT WATCH OUT FOR "MOTHER NATURE" !!!!!!
