Hi, We are headed to TN for a week in Oct. We have only one must-do event on the calendar for one evening in Knoxville, and want to make the most of the trip. We are big (flat water) kayakers and often look for lakes with campgrounds right on the water so we can just plunk them in for an early morning or late evening paddle without hassle of transporting them around too much. We will be traveling in a 39 ft Discovery, so we like to find spots where we can have at least decent amenities such as full hookups if possible or at least electric. I looked into Fall Creek Falls St Pk and found it might work and looked really nice, but then we started looking at other nearby lakes and wondered if another might be better for us, specifically to be able to get a site ON the water's edge. Anybody with info on Douglas Lake, Fontana Lake, Panther Creek St Park or Percy Priest? I know many folks who like Norris, so that might be good. We may decide to go as far west as Nashville, but it's not really on our must-do list. We do like Dollywood and will probably do that for a day and maybe wander around Gatlinburg for part of a day, but not much into shopping/crowds/cities, so it would be short and sweet! I really think we would be able to make a week of just hanging out by the lake, hiking some, fishing some and enjoying the beauty of TN. Any must see spots in the Knoxville-ish area? Thanks ahead for the tips!!
