    Perfect! I'll call or PM that Thursday.

    Yes, And they also said the "tent" sites were drive in and there were plenty of "shade" trees.

    That's code for dive to tree hanging sites!

    Yes it is. I called them last week and had them send me another map in case they had updated them. I got it today along with a Nantahala National Forest map. Nice map too
    Here is the http://www.grahamcountytravel.com/
    The numbers are:
    Local Phone is 1-828-479-3790
    Toll Free Long Distance is 1-800-470-3790

    I am guessing you may have time to call and get a map mailed to you before you have to drive over next week
