There was a thread where I was asking for people's ideas on good kid friendly campsites since this was my first time camping in the Smokies myself. The thread is here
18 looks very good, and 65 as well. 39 is a possibility. I decided to try 93 at twentymile creek since so little was known about it, and it was an easy hike with good access to shallow water for the boys to play in. The report Crockett posts in that thread gives lots of description of CS 18.

I think Im planning the next for Sept 18th! (if all the stars align properly of course). If any other father/sons want to join us please feel free!
