Planning on doing a slow hike on the BMT in the GSMNP from Fontana Dam to Lakeshore Drive.

Considering campsites 88, 77, and 98.

Anybody have any good intel on these sites recently? Do these sites have space for two tents? Bear cables available at these sites?

Thanks in advance for any helpful information.

I can report the surrounding woods of Campsite 88 is full of poison ivy. Be careful if anyone plans to stay there. I got a bad case of poison ivy and now on Prednisone. Does have a very good water source though.

Don't know the circumstances, but if you don't already, you should teach yourself to recognize it. Prednisone is pretty heavy duty shit!

That doesn't surprise me about Possum Hollow. That site doesn't see a lot of action so the ground stuff grows up fast and thick.
