Clean , friendly no contact check in, sites are smaller than most. Neighbors are really close. Pet friendly. Huge water issue lots of standing water on a lot of sites , ours included . For one night it was manageable. Major drainage problem. Would most likely stay again , but would ask for a site with no standing water.
Went for valentines weekend. Was cold and foggy but caves were 58 degrees. Jasmine our tour guide was amazing. Hiking trail on property. 1 miles straight up. We made it to about 750 ft. Touch climb. Campsites have rocks and concrete patio with picnic table. Campground has nice shower facilities. Very clean and spacious. There is a gym and pool area. You can buy wood here for $5 a bundle. All the staff were great and nice. Great wifi if you need it 😉. Only 2 miles to Walmart. Less than 10 minutes to get to the sites in Chattanooga.
This is a nice, clean campground to stay while traveling. There are close restaurants nearby and decent bathrooms which seemed newly renovated.
They had dog walking areas too. Everything was clean and had a good feel to it.
1/24/21: We were looking for somewhere near the Pocket to camp out for a night after a nice mountain bike ride on the Pinhotti Trail. The main campground in the area is closed in the winter. We pulled off the road onto Gentry Gap and found the perfect spot at the end of the road (~1 mile, easy dirt road). The Forest Service has done a nice job blocking off areas from vehicles (to stop erosion). There are 4 or 5 spots that are perfect for dispersed tent camping, and a small stream across the road for added ambiance. Super quiet and peaceful.
This is just under 2 hours from midtown Atlanta. The setting is lovely and I am sure it's a 'must see' during the leaf changing season as most of the forest is mature hardwoods. We had a pull through site overlooking the lake. The restroom facility closest to our site was closed but there was another facility a short walk away. It was a cold weekend so the heaters in the restroom buildings were very much appreciated. About half the campsite was full so it was very quiet and relaxing. There were an abundance of birds in the area (for you bird watchers). We did the hike to the Fort and Fire Tower from a nearby parking area. It's a relatively easy 30 minute hike up. There is a longer more challenging hike from the campsites but we were not up for that this trip. We had one dog with us, so I'd say this place is very dog friendly. Apparently there is a lot of black bear activity in the area but we did not see any this time. *Interesting fact: black bears do not hibernate like other more northernly bears so be informed and aware. We will absolutely return to this wonderful park.

We stayed at this campground in the middle of November 2020 around Veterans Day. We booked one of the cabins which was perfect (there are several at various sizes). The one we stayed in had two rooms; one to sleep in (a double and a bunkbed) with a small fridge, microwave, and coffee maker and a bathroom with a walk in shower. The campground was clean and quiet. There was a Landry room at the bathhouse, which we were able to wash our clothes before heading home. You are minutes from Chattanooga and other sites like Ruby Falls and Lookout Mountain/Rock City (it's best to purchase ticket online and recommended by the sites). The staff was awesome and polite, easy to talk to. There was a hiking trail. You can tour the cavern for a cost, which was separate from the park office. We look forward to staying again, hopefully by then in a RV.
This really wasn’t bad! Other than us not being sure where to go. We drove for what felt like 20 miles down a well kept unpaved road from the entrance but I think it reality was only 5.5 miles. There’s a gravel lot next to the pond which is where we set up our rooftop tent on surprisingly 0° incline on all sides so we had a very level set up. There grassy are is fenced off but has multiple fire pits for dispersed camping. Not much for a weekend trip unless you want to hike and the hikes are pretty mediocre. There’s an overlook somewhere but we were just testing our gear so didn’t go searching for it. Would camp again if we had to but won’t go out of our way to stay here.
This campground is in a great location with amazing trails, history stops, waterfalls, and more located very close by. The owner stopped by our RV to welcome us and is very friendly and helpful. Upon booking, she sent links of great places to visit so we could better plan our stay. She was readily available by phone and made the check in process very quick and easy. We had a very generous spot and were able to receive the WIFI! The campground is hilly, which makes it even more appealing for me as I wanted to camp in the mountains amongst nature. Although hilly, our site was quite level and easy to get to. I would recommend this campground, especially if you enjoy nature in all its natural beauty!
This is a beautiful campground located right on the river! A great place to fish and enjoy nature. It is a large mountain property, that has 4 camping areas. Lots to do around the area too. They even have tubing on site…so much fun! You should check it out the next time you are in the North Ga. Mountains!
