Editor Tips & Helpful Hints
  • There are five camping areas around the "Rez," as locals call Ross Barnett. The pick of these are Coal Bluff and Goshen Springs. These sites are particularly well-suited for family campers, with swimming areas, playgrounds, and bathhouses.
  • Given its shallow depths and profusion of stumpy flats, this is one of the South's most popular bass-fishing locales.
