Jerry Bass and his family opened Old McDonald Fish Camp March 17, 1977. The restaurant originally seated only 95 people and now it seats 250 people. The Bass Family invites you to come and enjoy the country environment with a beautiful pond view. The children will enjoy feeding the many different animals - goats, chickens, ducks, peacocks and fish. We specialize in channel catfish, and we're famous for our all-you-can-eat grits & hushpuppy bar. The restaurant is smoke and alcohol free.
