Smoky Mountain Dirt Roads?

I'm taking a ride down through WV to the Smoky Mountains near the end of September. I'm trying to find a good resource or recommendations for dirt/gravel roads in the Smoky Mountain region as well as good primitive bike/camping spots.

I like the Eastern side of the park. Lots of stuff around Max Patch and Hot Springs. Good primitive camping and no traffic.

Be sure and ride Harmon Den Road and TN 32

There is a lot of area covered by the smokies... do you have a more specific location to start with?

Not at the moment, so I'm open to any recommendations.
I'm coming in from the north. I plan to stay in the area for 3-4 days so I would have time to explore.

The Eastern Rendevous is held at Hot Springs area for a reason. There is some good riding on that side. Although the riding around Tellico is good also.

The stuff in the park...not so much. Also, the dragon is just for a feather in your cap and a tshirt if you are into that kind of thing. The riding is much better elsewhere.

It is a huge area.
