One of the best fishing lakes is Guntersville Lake in Alabama. It's south of Huntsville in the northern part of the state and has some of the best fishing anywhere!! There are several campgrounds around, too. Town Creek is a basic campground with bathhouses - not much else, but it's only $12-$14/nite with water & electric. Near there is also Lake Guntersville State Park with a great campground, too. It costs a little more, but it's cleaner and has other activities and paved roads, etc.
