Those pictures are simply stunning! And that park is absolutely gorgeous! Thank you for sharing that, but now I have to figure out how to get there....

Great place to eat there close by also called Cowboys On The River. Great restaurant there at the Marina also. We eat at both places every year when we go to Pigeon Forge.

The rates are 49-69 per night. And the bathhouse is setup as 4 or 5 rooms, each with its own toilet, shower and sink. I will try and get some pictures of that today.

My wife said the sunrise was absolutely beautiful this morning. I'll have to take her word for it. I slept in.

Thanks for posting! My wife and I visited Douglas Lake years ago. Beautiful place. The campground looks really inviting.

How long did it take you to get there from Salisbury? I assume you took I-40. The section going through the Cherokee National Forest looks intimidating. What was it like pulling your rig through there? I've wanted to plan a camping trip to the area for some time now.

We had no problem getting here. I40 all the way, just pushed the tow/haul button, and the truck had no problem. As a matter of fact, I never believed the tow/haul mode worked as good as I thought I could foot throttle it.

We went to Myrtle Beach last month, and did not use tow/haul mode, we averaged 9.2 mpg. Well I decided I was going to use the tow/haul mode, no matter what, and we averaged 11.25 mpg. I was astonished, never would I believe that would happen. The distance traveled was the same, about 180 miles. I am now a firm believer in pushing the button.
