Fontana Dam to Lakeshore Drive section in GSMNP
Planning on doing a slow hike on the BMT in the GSMNP from Fontana Dam to Lakeshore Drive.
Considering campsites 88, 77, and 98.
Anybody have any good intel on these sites recently? Do these sites have space for two tents? Bear cables available at these sites?
Thanks in advance for any helpful information.
Every campsite in GSMNP I saw on the BMT had space for at least 2 tents, and most had space for many more. Also, all sites had cables or a bear pole, though I only recall seeing one pole (and the cables are much, much nicer). The biggest issue is whether or not humans have managed to shut any campsites when you hike by feeding the bears. I do not have any information on any current closures, or likely closures (where problems have occurred, but not the degree that the rangers feel the need to close the site).
