I was told something to the extent that due to the proximity to the train tracks that that land at the confluence on that gravel bar is public land?...this true? We camped on it and didn't have any problem....except our boats got dry docked, haha....fun stuff.

I don't know the name of the island. It is the one right before the old iron bridge at Stonewall. But there was an old lady who claimed she owned it. She fished right on the point a lot and always had a scattergun with her. I believe she would dam sure shoot you, too.

I guess she died, haven't seen her in several years.

There are a couple places up and down the river you could camp and not be bothered even by 4-Gens. But you would have to have all your stuff in the boat with you. The places I am talking about are for sure on private land and I'm not encouraging anyone to trespass, but as long as you didn't build a huge fire, no way they would know.

Of course, there's always the cave.

Stik- Just above Betty's Island is a pretty large cave on the left bank coming down. Lots of camping(partying)takes place there.

Seriously, that is a consideration. I think the biggest rattleback coppertones I have ever seen were along the Caney.

Back during prohibition, there were some great stories about that cave and another few people know about.

Based on that experience I had, I'll say the landowners on the Caney Fork are certainly a little pointy with their scatterguns, fo sho.
