Anybody ever been to Hazel Creek, just off of Fontana Lake in the Smokies? I am tagging along with my broter-in-law and a friend the weekend of May 10. We are taking a boat to cross the lake to get to Hazel Creek. Any trails in this area? I hear the fishing is great. I get the feeling this will be more of a "base camp" type of trip with day hikes.

Trail map
Note that you must use designated sites and those in red require a reservation.

I've only been on the very upstream part, from Silers Bald to maybe half mile below Jonas Creek Trail. Fishing is pretty popular from what I've read.
