Obed Wild And Scenic River Campground Professional Review and Guide
"The Obed National Wild and Scenic River, administered by the National Park Service, has come of age. What once was a protected recreation area in name only has now evolved into a multiple outdoor activity destination supported by the community. It all began with die-hard kayakers and canoers plying the whitewater of the Obed-Emory River watershed. Next, a few paddle access points were established. Then a 14-mile segment of the Cumberland Trail was completed. It runs through the heart of the Obed River gorge. The addition of Rock Creek Campground at the Nemo Bridge boat access has made this scenic swath of the Cumberland Plateau a prime destination for tent campers."
--Johnny Molloy, The Best In Tent Camping: The Southern Appalachian & Smoky Mountains (Menasha Ridge Press).
The campground host seemed like a nice fellow, as he kept telling me, "Please dont let this change your mind on the campground, we try to keep things family oriented around here." "Well we are a family and I ' m sorry for the empty malt drink on
the table . " I said to him as i stared at the park ranger who continued to look through our coolers. Plain and simple folks... this place is great if you enjoy the deep neck woods and the back-country rivers. Its also great if you don't like your privacy and enjoy being harrassed.
