Small Group Camping on Hazel Creek

Spend four days and three nights camping and fishing on Hazel Creek. We completely outfit your group of four to seven people including some of the best camp food you’ve ever tasted.

Your campsite will be completely set up and waiting for your arrival, giving you more time to experience some of the very best trout fishing in the Smokies. Everything is provided — the equipment, the food and the expert knowledge of one of the Smokies’ most experienced guides, Steve Claxton.

Four day/three night camps run from Thursday-Sunday or Sunday-Wednesday. Please call for more information and availability.

What To Expect

Our weekend camping trips begin on Friday (or Suday) afternoon with a twenty-minute pontoon boat ride across Fontana Lake to the remote North Shore area of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. (Unless you’re open to a 20-mile hike, a boat is really the only way to get there.)

Everything is provided — the equipment, supplies, camp setup and food. In fact, camp is already set up when you arrive maximizing your time enjoying the wilderness. The luxurious back country camp includes comfortable 120-square-foot stand-up tents, hammocks, cots, chairs and other amenities not usually associated with deep woods camping.

What you do on your camping trip is entirely your choice although few campers pass up the opportunity to go fly fishing with an expert fishing guide. If you simply want to relax or go exploring, that’s fine too. We’ll customize the trip to your wilderness wishes.

We break camp and return to civilization after lunch on Sundays and Wednesdays.
