Hazel Creek has the most storied and richest history of any region inside the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Once home to luminary figures such as Horace Kephart, founding father of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Also home to legendary outdoorsmen such as Granville Calhoun and Aquilla Rose. In the early 1900’s this area was once a thriving mining and logging community with hundreds of people living along the banks. The establishment of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the creation of Fontana Lake left Hazel Creek cut off from the rest of the world. The remaining structures are a reminder of days and life gone by. We get to enjoy these sights on many of our excursions to Hazel Creek.
