Sounds like you had a nice trip. You are right about those places being great places to visit. I think I will confine myself to TN south of the National Park this trip.

I haven't fished any over there, all my fly fishing to date has been in the Rockies. I used to camp at Gee Creek quite a bit when I was leading river trips on the Hiwassee. Truth be told, my interest in fly fishing stems from watching the fishermen on the river when I used to canoe it.
For what its worth, if you want cheap camping during the week with out full hookups, you can stay at Hiwassee Outfitters for something like $7 a night right by the river. A few sites have 110 hookups availble.
