Last time I came down I75, I got about 10 miles from Rt81 heading south and the clouds decided to open up. Worst rain I have ever seen in my life. I am guessing here, but I don't think it takes more than 45 minutes once you get on 75 south from Rt 81 to get to the area. Unfortunately, the quickest way to get there is either coming down the Tail of the Dragon or coming across the Cherohala..........

Edit: I was going to Tellico Plains when I went down I75 last. Add another 50 miles to that to get to Fontana Dam from there....... 1 hour 45 min to 2 hours......
