    Default Medicine Branch Bluff Campground

    I have heard mention of a unique campground on top of a ridge in the middle of a boulder field. It was referred to as Medicine Branch Bluff Campground, but I cannot locate it on my latest version of GSMNP trail/campground map.

    Anybody familiar with this site?

    Is it an old one that has since been closed down? Or are my sources just confusing it with another park?

    My best guess is the old campsite #21 that was called Medicine Branch. The new #21 is called something else. Sorry I don't have more info but my guide is not available right now. And then again, I could be mistaken?

    Yeah thats the old cs 21 on the Sugarland Mountain trail that is now moved to the Huskey Gap trail about .3 of a mile from the little river trail. Part of the reason they closed the old one was the spring up there is unreliable so water was usually a problem if it was dry like it is right now.
