A Great Place to Camp

Southern hospitality! Has horse camping with covered stalls. Great trails on Green River Lake State Park for hiking, biking & horses. Located close to boat ramps. You’ll be glad you chose Green River Stables!

Entrance into dark sky zone

Camped here a few years ago and got wonderful night sky shots. Definitely worth a stay if you're visiting Big South Fork.Great campers and great scenery

Secluded hike in

One of the only dark sky zones in TN. Great for milky way/ night sky pictures. Quite a bit of elevation change so take that into account

Wonderful climbing heaven

You can't beat a campsite with a brewery attached. Wonderful climbing spots only a short jot away. My favorite spots are along the bluff. Will definitely revist again. Also gpr some reason i saved the wifi. You only get it next to the double wide though. Lilly pad campground wifi: Gracefulsky227. Have a brew for me until i visit again soon!

Wow...what a nice little find

So we were unlucky with one campground due to space and knew we wanted to go to Cummins falls so we stumbled upon this while waiting for space. Very unique…it is literally right across the street from the state park entrance. Limited sites but offered primitive and RV spaces so it is perfect. Sites were plenty big but not many trees so your neighbors are gonna talk to you. You can’t be unneighborly here as it’s meant to be a community. General store was closed but it does look to have it all from ice, firewood, candy and ice cream. Can’t wait to come back to here!

The sites are nice and mostly level which is a bonus for the big rvs and there are some in the back that sit up against the forest so you have a bigger player ground. They did have a little area for a stage and playground for the kiddos so that makes it happy for everyone. Does have a locked gate so not everyone can get in which is nice as well.

A little surprised...

So this campground is obviously for those who want to stay longer than a few days and who live some fish. It sits adjacent to a catfish farm where you can fish and eat all in the same breath. The sites have electrical, water, and sewer so they are meant for the long haul camper. It was basic…gravel drive and a picnic table with a fire ring. Can’t get any more simple than that. No reason for amenities when you have the catfish farm right next door.

Unique but very interested! It is perfectly located in between some state parks that are popular and right along the highway.

Expected more

Stayed here over the new year. Very wooded and LOTS of trees. Would be nice in summer time. Had one of the nicest sites that backed up to a creek that feeds a big pond. Sewer at every site. No picnic tables but did have fire ring. Pool was closed for the season, it was small, but looked nice. No playground, had a basketball court but both backboards were shattered. Had volleyball but net was ripped down. Did have horse shoes. The only reason I’m giving three stars and not two is because the site was nice and had a peaceful creek running behind it.

Moonbow!

I went to see the Moonbow at Cumberland Falls SP, unfortunately it was overcast but still very cool. The campground was on a little bit of a hill. The sites were good size. I set up my trailer tent and had lots of room. The facilities were well maintained and the campground was shaded and quiet. There were trails to hike and smaller falls to enjoy. The main falls are near the trailhead for several trails. There is a visitors center and education center by the falls and a picnic area across the road.

Five Star Campers Paradise

If you are considering this site, just go book it now! Our absolute favorite camp site! We visited this paradise for my fiancé’s best friends wedding. They got married at the base of Cummins Falls just across the street. The park rangers and general store staff were the nicest people to work with while arranging their big day. We had two tent sites ($20 a night) and the brides parents had a cabin ($79 a night). The restrooms/showers were immaculate. Showers are set to a timer for lights and have a small area for your things. Bathrooms are also opened by a door code which you get when you purchase a site. They have a playground, and even ice cream in the general store! Camp sites are roomy, with a table and fire pit. We had spots 26&27 and couldn’t have been happier! The parents cabin was adorable and spacious, with a nice grill and fire pit out front. They even had chairs and lights. This location is beautiful and just a short drive from town. Definitely make time while staying here to hike Cummins Falls, it’s worth every second. If we could give this site twenty stars we would! Will definitely be returning!

Clean, Quiet and Beautiful

The campground was clean and quiet. Our campsite backed up to the Cumberland River. There were several spots for hiking and fishing. We will definitely be back!
