Public Area


Tennessee National Forest - Public Land

National Forest lands in the Tellico, Coker Creek area with miles of streams for dredging, panning, and sluicing are now available. They have changed their policy. They will no longer mail the permits. You must contact them in person to get a permit. The permit is now good for 1 year and is still free. Maximum dredge size in these areas is 3 inches, do not break this rule and be sure to obey all National Forest rules leaving the area as good or better than you found it. The ability to prospect these areas is a privilege and should not be abused.

For dredge permits and other information contact:
