Holly' moly, what a beautiful sight! 'Campsite,' that is—nestled snugly along the lush and beautiful eastern side of Tennessee in the Cherokee National Forest sits Holly Flats Campground. Rustic and quaint, Holly Flats is super remote and throws down some seriously gnarly hiking and fishing opportunities. Wildly diverse and astonishingly gorgeous, these grounds grant you tons of fascinating cultural heritage, as well as a red carpet entrance to Great Smokey National Park!

Super quiet, super secluded campground. Pit toilets no running water. Gorgeous creek. Alcohol is allowed, but it is very patrolled by wardens after dark so make sure you're legal.. There's really not much to do here, but if you want a relaxing weekend this is the place. Lots of places to hang a hammock. The name comes from all the holly trees and the ground is covered in them. It drove our dog crazy.

Accessed this by SUV, I wouldn't recommend a car, the forest road is kinda sketchy. it was kinda remote and I had no company.
Made a fire and hit the water which was about 50 yards from campsite. Brought a super nice 12-13 inch brown to hand on a caddis.
I highly recommend this place if you want to be left alone.
