    We stayed overnight in the quiet peaceful campground. The ranger was very helpful and kept a good eye on the campground. We saw many elk and Turkey in the fields and once in our campground. Many great trailheads. We fished a little with no luck...More

    There are a pair of gas stations on U.S. 276 (NC Exit 20 off of I-40). It's not all that close though...still have about 30 minutes to drive to get to the campground from there.

    Yes, absolutely.. In fact, some of the best trout fishing in the park is found in the river adjacent to the cataloochee campground. Must have a tennessee or nc fishing license.. Enjoy
