Never done this before so I Hope I don't screw it up! I have fish on the Cherokee
Indian Reservation off and on for the last ten years.
If you want an excellent place to Camp try Indian Creek.
The Campground is bordered on both sides by creeks.
Indian Creek is on one side and is restricted to
Indians only. But the larger one Bunches Creek is
stocked Wens. Fri, and Sat. Neither of these creeks
can be fished on Wens. The camping is perfect for
families or individuals, in tent or motor homes.
Fills up fast so make your reservations early.
Phone number is (704)497-4361. I've taken several friends
here over the years and they have always gone back on
their own. Just ask for Jim or Jean. Bunches creek can
be fished for about 3 miles. The two creeks come
together at the bottom of the campground and then
Bunches creek dumps into Raven Fork (sp)River. I
would suggest light cahills #18-22 if you fish the
river. The browns and brooks will hit these on the
hatch which is early evening. Good Luck. If you
have any questions just send me an E-Mail and I'll help
