Fodor's Review

This is the smallest picnic area in the park, with only 10 picnic tables. It's accessible via Exit 451 of Interstate 40, or the unpaved Cove Creek Road from Cataloochee. There's a small campground here and restrooms but no pavilion. Several good hiking trails can be reached from the picnic area. Big Creek has some Class IV rapids nearby.
