I do have to say we got there and it was not open yet. We did walk around and saw Rock Creek Falls but it was not what I was expecting.

If you want to visit a very nice lake, this is the place to go. I live near by and went for a day trip, it was well worth the drive

Super place to get in touch with the outdoors. Campfires, swimming in cool mountain pool, cool breezes, pleasant walks in nature. Wear your hiking shoes. Nature trails, mountain streams. Kids will find a lot of outdoorsy stuff to do. Leave the computer games at home....More

This is a great camp ground or a place to get away and picnic, swim, and hiking. Hike to waterfalls. With beautiful sights and the water cold. Great on a hot day. Its close to town but far enough away to be quiet and peaceful.

I think there is one around Nolichucky River. Search on Nolichucky River rafting and adventures. Not sure of the name.

I believe so. When We were kids we would pull a upright with a good sized truck and also park a car nearby. Search wildlife and forestry service in TN and ask them. They police the place and help keep it running.
