Hi,

Im looking for an area in TN my father and I can hike without all the restrictions that come from hiking in a state park.

We basically want to hike, camp and fish somewhere without all the rules of a state park.

Ive looked on many camping sites, but have come up short.

Any help would be appreciated.

What rules do they have in state parks that make you want to hike somewhere else?

There are plenty of state forests, national forests, state recreation areas. But I don't have a clue what kinds of rules they wouldn't have that they do have at state parks.

Default S.E. Gorge

U.. : We would have to do the FISH part a few miles from the Gorge, or just do some basic hiking mtn biking from the fishing cove. Some early sections of the Cumberland trail are quite remote, and have a shelter. Up North statge come close to state park.
Unless you are really talking about using 4x4, ATV,s I get to some remote Swimming HOles. Maybe join some hiking clubs, or volunteer for the initial BUILD of the Cumberland trail up on Walden ridge, sections not even cut yet.
Also in this area are the lumber access areas that are being sold off, not under state ownership yet. ...[/IMG]
FIRERING already built in bottom center of picture.

Hi

Thanks for your responses. What im getting at is, all these parks say where you must camp, where you can fish, what you can and cant do.
What im looking for is an area which is secluded enough that im not going to see anyone else, where I can build a fire and camp and fish where ever I want.

I would like to park the car for a few days, hike off into the mountains on my schedule, camp out anywhere I wish, fish anywhere I want and return when I like.

Is there anywhere this can be done in Tennessee?

Thanks to everyone for there help.

Lightbulb Piney River, Spring City. ?

U: I see some info about the West side of Spring City, rt#27 & Rt 68. Area called Piney River, and some remote access points on Shut-In Gap road.
This is near the Eastern / Central time zone line.
Again you are close to Watts Bar Lk if you need bigger fish waters. Let me know what you find out.?

We prefer the Cohutta wilderness for such adventures. Beware of Tearbritches! Great going down but H$%L coming back up. Tons of trails and one trail (Jack's River) we crossed 30 or 40 times. After the 10th, I quit taking my shoes and socks off but boy did we have some cold beer coming back out! We never saw a ranger nor did we "tag" our car w/destination or dates of arrival and departure. I have included a link for you. Have fun!

Default Hiking

You might consider the Tennessee portion of the Appalachian Trail. Some of it intersects streams and lakes.
