Nature abounds in the SmokiesOur mountains are full of beautiful streams. With over 700 miles of streams, the Smokies are a true fisherman's paradise. Although best known for trout, our clear mountain streams are home to almost 80 species of fish.
Cool spots made for picnics Only single-hook artificial lures are permitted; fishing with any kind of bait is prohibited. It is illegal to possess brook trout, the only trout native to the Smokies.

Kayakers are welcome to explore our mountain streams and rivers. Our park is an excellent place in spring, summer and fall to watch for native wildlife.

The trout are waiting for you Fishing is allowed within the park from sunrise to sunset, with either a valid TN or NC fishing license. License can be obtained at local sporting goods stores, no trout stamp required. See fishing info for more.
Peaceful meandering streams The park hosts various special events such as Old Timers' Day, quilt shows, storytelling, and apple butter making. Many festivals feature crafts and tell of the history of the congenial mountain folk.

Special events such as the Smoky Mountain Music Festival, Smoky Mountain Romance, the Scottish Festival & Games, and Winterfest with its Parade of Lights, and Smoky Mountain Lights, delight visitors all during the year.
