    Having lived in that general area for years I can say that your primary game fish are going to be small-mouth bass and stripe with the occasional large mouth bass along with the normal crappie and pan-fish.

    The areas with easy access are going to be heavily fished at this point in time and it is nearing the end of the season so they will not have stocked much since spring.

    You might get lucky and find a trout farm! We did back in 2013.

    I am a firm believer that the finest freshwater fish eating is panfish. Don't need much with corn fritters and cheese grits on the side.

    One of the most memorable meals I ever ate was a mess of pan-fish that had not been out of the water for 15 minutes when they hit the skillet.

    I was out camping and a couple of friends showed up, broke out their rods and reels and started hauling in perch one after another. In about 10 minutes they had enough for all of us.

    Perch, fried potatoes and onions and hoe cakes.

    It was 20 years ago and I still remember that meal!

    Sorry I haven't been on much. Still no internet and I'm not much for using my phone. If you have something that you no longer need that might be useful to someone else we're going to do a sort of trade blanket and door prize thing. Phil is bringing tickets for the giveaways.

    My wife and I will be camping from Thursday evening to Saturday morning. For a group meal for Friday night, we'll be bringing a couple of marinated pork loin's and a cold salad for the group. I'll also bring fixings for a cobbler using MadMax's or someone's Dutch oven. Don't know about the firewood situation in the area, but if I see someone selling firewood on my way in, I'll make sure to pickup a bit.

    Also, I'll bring some premade homemade cinnamon rolls for breakfast Friday or Saturday morning.

    YellowYak- I'll have a couple of Dutch ovens with me, you are welcome to use one of them.

    I'll be bringing a few things for the door prize and a few other thing for the trade blanket.

    Still working on what to make for the group dinner, I like to cook, so anything is good to me. Will take requests. Fish is still on the menu for one of those days.

    Hey all

    I have a couple of dutch ovens I'll be bringing. I'll make a couple of dump cakes for a dessert. I'll also be chipping in on the firewood.

    Kyrat and I are teaming up to make an AR build demonstration. I'm also interested in the historical site and I know the mrs is interested in exploring local fare. My son has been learning some stuff in the scouts do he will probably want to apply it out there.

    Cool beans on the build. I couldn't find a range within striking distance though.

    I would like to visit that historical site.

    I've been involved in Scouting for twenty-three years now, I would be glad to help him out with practicing his scout skills.

    I am ashamed to admit that after living in TN for 50 years and teaching U.S. and TN history for 35 years I have never been to the Alvin York homestead.

    York was not just a MOH winner, he used the proceeds from sponsorship and advertising to fund an industrial arts trade school in his home area that operated until after his death. He even mortgaged his farm to keep the school operating.

    Update - I will be heading out on Thursday instead of Wednesday and expect to arrive at the campground by 7:00pm. It's an estimated 8-hour drive and I'm hoping to be out of here by 10:00am. I'm working on putting my gear together, like I said earlier I'll be traveling on the lighter side so I have some limits I have to work around. I'll pick up food tomorrow, my fishing license and firewood on my way down. I'll bring a GMRS/Marine Band/Weather Band radio with me to have on hand. I'll be using a backpacking tent to sleep in and tarp for shelter while cooking if needed. I will bring a couple Dutch ovens and a cast Iron skillet along with cooking utensils.

    Looking forward to heading out!

    I'm headed out late tonight to beat the Atl am traffic. I'll just deal with the Knoxville stuff. Hope I can set up camp early if there is no one there.

    Drive safe everybody.
