I've seen people camp right there at Indian Cave including a boy scout troop once. I remember because I was so irked; the generation schedule was perfect, we got up real early and were ready for a full day of fishing on the Holston. We drove down to the boat ramp at the dam and there was a horde of boy scouts putting their fleet of canoes in the water. We had already left a car at Indian Cave and we weren't going back, so we regrettably stuck with our plan. Those kids were paddling around right in front of us all day. There was a great caddis hatch coming off that day, but needless to say we didn't catch a thing! It took us all day to get to Indian Cave and when we got there they were setting up camp. I suppose they were getting ready to get up the next day and ruin someone else's fishing trip to Nance's Ferry.
Anyway, I know it's technically private land, but I don't know what kind of permission you would need to camp there.
