A medium size, lanceolate, eared point with a concave base and recurved blade edges. Bases may be thinned or fluted and lightly ground. Flaking is of the random Woodland type and should not be confused with the earlier auriculate forms that have the parallel flaking. These points are similar to Cumberland, Beaver Lake, Dalton and Quad, but are shorter and of poorer quality. It is believed that Paleo people survived in East Tennessee to 3,000 B.P., and influenced the style of the Candy Creek point. Believed to be related to Copena, Camp Creek, Ebenezer, Greenville and Nolichucky points.
