Why are Fish Camps, umm, called Fish Camps?

I've always thought this was weird too. I think it's a southern thing.

Camping...by the river....where fishing and drinking and talking crap is done.
I don't see what the confusion is about.

I have no idea....it's what my Grandfather called it, what my father called, and what I call them. From what I remember though didn't most of the ones in Gastonia close? When I visit Charlotte, I make it a point to go to Steve's Fish Camp (what I call it) on Monroe Rd. (it's before the McAlpine Creek Park)
Maybe is a Southern Baptist slang that stuck...not sure.

I would assume it was a spot that men could go camp, fish, and cook, to get away from their wives.
