On Top of Lookout Mountain

Desoto is near Little River Canyon on top of Lookout Mountain. Lots of waterfalls and wildflowers. Rhododendrons and Mountain Laurel were is bloom when we were there. Also a pool, cabins, a chalet and lodge. The campground is small. Water and electric.

Beautiful trails!

Some of the most beautiful trails and waterfalls I have been to. The facilities were nice and clean. The bathroom was kind of far from our campground. Overall it was a great stay.

Weekend of Falls

Large sites, some level some not so much. We stayed in site 30 which was great! No cell service, but the campground has WiFi. Visit the link for more information and lots of photos.

Great for groups

Took a group trip here in high school and stayed in the larger group sites separated by gender. Overall it was a wonderful weekend and a great location for a group of our size with lots of amazing activities to do in the area. We also took full advantage of the great covered picnic areas since it rained a bunch that weekend. Some of our activities included taking kayaks/canoes up the river above Desoto Falls then hiking down from the top to swim in the small lake below. We also did a bunch of trust and group team building activities in some of the many open spaces around the campground. Overall, this is a great place to come with school groups and the large campsites work perfectly for lots of people to sleep.

Great place

Love this place and the surrounding area.

Many waterfalls and hiking trails

Excellent campground

IIt is a really great campground. The sites are shady and spread out a little. It also offers cabin and chalet rentals that are great if you want to get away but still have the comforts of home. They have great hiking trails and they even have a trail with a board walk. The park also has a playground and a pool. It's also home to Desoto falls and beautiful flora.


Wonderful State Park. Sites are big. Campground and restrooms are clean.

We’ve been coming here with friends for years in tent, cabin, pop up camper, and now travel trailer.

Getting to it with a large rig is readily doable, but not easy as you drive up a mountain and along curvy roads.

Breathtaking and beautiful.

Was beautiful. Well definitely go back.

Definitely Worth a Visit!

Our primitive campground was at the furthest end of the road & we felt pretty secluded & comfortable. The campsite was situated on a bit of a cliff, which made for a beautiful experience as well as for bouldering opportunities for the more adventurous of the group. There were plenty of trees for hammocks & a good fire pit as well. Surprisingly also for mid-summer, there were no mosquitos at all, so that was a major plus! I would definitely come back here again & have already recommended it to many friends.

Beautiful View, Fire Pit and Level Ground

This campsite was so wonderful for primitive camping. We had a cool location on top of a small cliff/rock and it was beautiful to wake up to. We set up hammocks and could have used semi-nearby restrooms but ended up not. It was very clean and well kept! I would totally go back to this site
