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

I am from TN.....never heard of a fish camp until I moved to NC.  Fish camp??? My first thought was not that it is a restaurant.  

 

So now...it seems to mean battered and deep fried....right?  Shortens life expectancy  ?

Camping...by the river....where fishing and drinking and talking crap is done. 

 

I don't see what the confusion is about.

I was born and raised in the mountains of NC and I've never heard this term.

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.

Looks to be a NC thing.  I used Google.

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