North Carolina Mountain Trout, From Our Pond to Your Frying Pan
Nothing rounds out a Smoky Mountain vacation like trout fishing. And Kirkland Creek Campground is one of the few area camping destinations built around a fully-stocked trout pond that’s also open to the public.
Imagine catching your own dinner and cooking it right at your campsite. We supply the fishing gear and everything you need, and no license is required.
Fishing our pond is a great activity for the whole family.
- Pay only for what you catch
- No catch limit
- You must keep what you catch (Sorry, no catch and release.)
Camp with us and receive a discount on fishing! We also have a cleaning station for our campers to easily take care of the pre-dinner preparations.
Not camping with us? So come to fish and while you’re at it, check out our secluded, family-friendly campground. You won’t want to leave!
