I was in Jackson County yesterday. Didn't go to Deep Creek. I went last year when I was there. It had been 45 years since the last time I was there, I was just 10 years old. My Dad used to pack us up and head out to the SMNP in the heat of summer and we camped at Deep Creek. Tubed and fished. I was pleased to return to it. Many fond memories. Was not near as many people in those days but the family had a great time while we were there.
We're planning on returning next year.
