CHEROKEE COUNTY, N.C.- The Annual Cherokee County Big Sweep will be held at Hanging Dog Campground on September 30, 2017. Each year, this event is an opportunity for residents to come together and clean up Cherokee County’s beautiful water resources. Last year, the event brought in 15,720 pounds of trash from Hiwassee Lake!
This year, there will be four boats provided by Duke’s Marina. Personal boats are welcome- please contact the organizers before the event. Trash can also be collected from the Payne Street Boat Ramp in downtown Murphy, NC, but the main event is at the campground. If you plan to participate from downtown, please check in at the campground first.
