woops...hit the wrong key. My typing is not so hot since the table saw decided to sample the left side of my index finger yesterday!! Talk about some blue air around here....Oh well, I got the bullnose for the A/S cut, it just has some odd coloration on one spot!!! Anyway, thanks for looking Kevin, that's an angle I had not thought of.

Need help ID'ing Campground in Cherokee!

Hey Cobra93,

My home is about 20 minutes from Cherokee. There are a couple of campgrounds along the Oconaluftee River on the Reservation.

Dig deep into your memory....was it near Santa's Land?

It doesn't really matter, I'll get some info to you directly if you want (brochures, etc.)

During the next couple of months I be going over that way and will check things out closer for you. Be aware....Cherokee has changed alot since the fourlanes and the casino have made it a weekend target for Atlanta, Charlotte, Knoxville, etc. There is still a lot of the old ways such as the TeePee and the Chief to take your kids photos with, but a much quicker pace on the main drag.

Anyway, I'll help you plan a fun time as best can.

Cheers,

David

David,
The campground WAS on the Oconaluftee river just outside of Cherokee (my childs memory says only 15 minutes or so out of Cherokee but it may be faulty). We had to turn right over the river to enter the campground and the thing I remember most is that adjacent to the streamside sites, there was this deep hole in the stream and the Indian kids showed us how to jump off of this big overhanging rock!! Freaked my parents out!! That hole must have been 10-12 feet deep and about 40 feet long right in the middle of the stream! I imagine it has changed, but as long as there are tacky spots for the kids to get those goofy spears with the rubber tips and rubber bowie knives it'll be ok! Odd what the childhood memory retains isn't it? The old Safari campground had a store, one pool and the river went down the side of it and angled off to the right. We also drove upstream about 20 minutes or so and hit the big trout farm where they got the trout for the stream stocking and then we also bought dirt for a dollar a bucket and seined it in a flue looking for rubies!! God that was great!! Thanks for the help.

Ok Cobra,

There are several campgrounds on both the east and west sides of the reservation along the Oconaluftee River. Deep Creek comes in from Smoky Mt. Nat. Park from the north. I'll scout it out (no pun intended) and get back with you in a couple of weeks.

Cheers,
David
