Alabama State Park
On the Tennessee River
We arrived in Cherokee, North Carolina 5 days ago. We had a nice trip through Mississippi and Alabama. Stayed in an Alabama State Park on the Tennessee River. Very beautiful with marinas and large r.v. spaces.
Cherokee is the entrance to the Smoky Mountain National Park on the North Carolina side. We are staying in the Indian Creek R.V. Park which has the Indian Creek running through it. Cherokee is located on a reservation and there is an outstanding museum located in the town which gives a complete history of the Cherokee Indians and their experiences living in this area.
The Smoky Mountain National Park is just full of spectacular views and we spent 1 day exploring the park. The next day we drove on the Blue Ridge Parkway which gives you a different perspective of the the small communities that make up this mountainous area of North Carolina.
We have seen lots of signs about "boiled peanuts". We finally tried some and they are boiled in salty water and taste like bad beans. We did have some neighbors at the r.v. park who fished the rivers near us every day and they gave us 3 beautiful trout.
What a treat to have fresh fish!
