What to Bring

  • Clothes and food cornhole
  • Comfortable shoes for hiking
  • Swimsuit for the hot tub
  • Insect repellent
  • Extra bathroom tissue and paper towels. Starter supplies are provided.
  • Laundry detergent
  • Bird seed for the bird feeders (They like sunflower seeds the best.)
  • Frisbee golf discs
  • iPod or iPhone with your favorite music selections
  • A printout of a free Evening Sky Map so that, if you like, you can identify planets, stars and constellations while you're relaxing in the hot tub.  The night sky at the Big South Fork is amazing. (Watching for shooting stars is a favorite family activity.)
  • A copy of the Big South Fork Trail Map. You can get the most recent National Geographic version of the map at The Hitching Post General Store. To get there, turn left from Oby Blevins onto Leatherwood Ford Road/Rte 297. It's two miles down on the right. If you run out of food, supplies or forget the deer corn and birdseed, they've got that, too.
  • If you enjoy a nice glass of wine or a cocktail in the evening, you may want to BYOB. Fentress and surrounding counties are semi-dry, i.e., only beer is sold here, and not on Sundays. The Highland Manor Winery on Hwy 127 in Jamestown sells its handmade wines as well as locally made jams and jellies and interesting gourmet foods.
