Bristol, Johnson City, and Kingsport Area Campgrounds is located near Hampton, TN. The trail is primarily used for camping and is accessible from April until December.
Decent camp ground, fishing permitted, I suggest catfishing if anything. Practice catch and release. I really can't suggest eating anything from the local lakes. Well enforced and patrolled, alcahol strictly prohibited. Fishing is not all that great but might as well give it a shot if your there. Bathrooms, showers, bear proof trash cans, tables available. Small fee, camping spots fill up fast so show up pretty early. About 2 or 3 miles from designated swimming area with boat loading ramp between swimming area and camp ground, so right there on the busy end of the lake. The entire road, lake, and mountain are beutiful and great for almost any outdoors activities. Hiking, nature trips, photography, fishing, boating, canoeing, camping, mountain biking, Scenic driving, walking, Swimming, road biking, trail running, pretty much any thing you would expect from a lake side camping ground.
