    Welcome to Prentice Cooper State Forest Dispersed Camping Area in Tennessee. If you're looking for a spot to truly get away from it all, this is your place. Nestled in a protected forest not far from Chattanooga, this area offers a rugged, back-to-nature experience.

    The camping spots are scattered around a picturesque pond, making it a serene setting for pitching your tent. Just be prepared for a bit of a rough ride getting there—some visitors have noted that the gravel roads can be challenging, especially for cars. But once you arrive, the tranquility is worth it. The pond is a popular spot, and you might even spot some local wildlife, like copperheads, so keep an eye out.

    One of the standout features here is the allowance of campfires, which is perfect for those cool evenings. Pets are welcome too, so feel free to bring your furry friends along. Just remember, there are no amenities like drinking water, toilets, or showers, so you'll need to come fully prepared to rough it.

    For those into off-road adventures, the area boasts several OHV trails. It can get busy on weekends, so if you prefer a quieter experience, try visiting during the week. The forest is expansive, offering plenty of opportunities for hiking and exploring. Some campers have mentioned catching largemouth bass in the pond, so bring your fishing gear if that's your thing.

    Overall, Prentice Cooper State Forest is a fantastic spot for those who love seclusion and don't mind a bit of a challenge getting there. Just pack your essentials, and you'll be set for a peaceful retreat in the heart of nature.

    The 37,000 acre Cohutta Wilderness contains 90 miles of hiking and backpacking trails, two of which follow the Jacks and Conasauga Rivers. Trailhead parking lots located around the wilderness perimeter provide foot access to the trails. Three Forks, Betty Gap, Chestnut Lead and Tearbritches Trailheads are open early March through December 31 each year due to winter road closures. The trails associated with these parking areas remain open, but must accessed from alternate trailheads. Some trails are open to horses. A map of the Cohutta/Big Frog Wilderness is available for $5, showing trails, topography, parking lots and access roads (purchase of map is strongly recommended). Hikers and backpackers should leave a detailed trip plan with someone expecting their return since cell service is unpredictable in this mountainous area.
