My wife and I are leaving very early Wednesday morning to go to Indian Boundary Recreation Area in eastern Tennessee. I'll post a campground report when we return.

We got back from Indian Boundary Recreation Area yesterday afternoon. The campground is very nice! It has four loops for RVs and another area just for tents. The RV area (which tents can use, also), has eletric hookups with potable water sources spaced out about every third campsite. There are rest rooms with flush toilets and warm showers--about three in each loop. The bathrooms are very nice and clean and are all handicap accessible.

Indian Boundary Recreation Area also has a 100 acre lake that is perfect for canoeing, with a sand beach swimming area complete with bathhouse and showers. Some campsites are on the lakefront across from the beach.

Keep in mind that this place is out in the sticks. The nearest "town" is Tellico Plains and it is over 14 miles away. The only access to the campground is off of the Cherohala Skyway (TN 165/NC 143). The Skyway is a very beautiful parkway, but is little used. You likely won't encounter much traffic on it, and most of what you do encounter are motorcycles. The traffic on this parkway is so light, that it is a magnet for bikers from all over the country. Unfortunately, some of these bikers are dangerous drivers. I kept expecting to see one wipe out, and sure enough on our way home, near the top of the parkway, we encountered an accident in which a biker completely smashed his(her?) Harley. Pieces of the motorcyle were all over the road. Not sure if anyone was hurt, but it was a miracle if they weren't. What was left of the bike was a mangled mess--they hit the guardrail obviously at a high rate of speed.

If you like canoeing, kayaking, or hiking...then this place is for you. Or if you just want some peace and quiet far from traffic and noise. We are avid hikers/canoeists, so we had a blast. There are lots of great mountain peaks, waterfalls, and hiking trails all around Indian Boundary.

I highly recommend it. Only $20 per night for campsite with electric hookups and access to dump station and clean restrooms.

The Indian Boundary Lake.

And a photo of me at Falls Branch Falls, a nearly 100 foot waterfall in the Citico Creek Wilderness Area which abuts the campground. A long and arduous hike into a gorge to see the falls, but well worth the effort!

And, lastly, Bald River Falls. A few miles from Indian Boundary campground.
