    Welcome, smashdn, from right down the road in Music City USA. I'll second all the other recommendations already made, and will add the Big South Fork NRRA, which lays on the border in both KY and TN. Great place. Like the Smokies, only without the people, it's been called.

    I have a nice place or two picked out for some deep woods backcountry camping well away from roads and trails that I have found while hunting.

    It is definintely on the list as well. Sounded like there were some nice waterfalls in the park. I did Fall Creek Falls for my anniversary two years ago.

    I'm just outside Franklin, TN...I make to LBL occasionally, but I've been heading to South Cumberland quite a bit lately.
