It was not that bad as far as crowds go. There were around 10-12 people in the campground, but for some reason it did not seam crowded in the campground. Maybe thats because I didnt stay there much. The fishing was not great but it is august. It was my first time up there and it was absolutly beautifull. I had real good look on a stimulator, and a bead head pheseantail. The only reunion that I know about is the old cataloochee reunion and they had that last sunday. If you have never been it is a great place, if you want to take a day away from fishing go and hike boogerman trail. It is a very nice trail with lots of virgin forests. Also check out the elk. If I have forgotten anything or you have anymore questions please ask. One more thing make sure and take all you need you are about 45 minutes from a quicky mart.
