Not an RV Park

This place is not an RV park. This is only a parking place behind buildings just off the main road. Yes they do have hook ups but this is not the nicest area and you are sharing a pool with the Budget Inn hotel guest. There are only a few spots to park. Yea you are close to a few restaurants but…

A little hard to find.

The coordinates on here will lead you to the middle of the road, however, if you keep driving, right before you hit the state park, you will see a campground to your left that is free free free. It overlooks some hills and is relatively level. Decent cell coverage if you need to work. Overall,…

Good campsite

Campsites are nice but electric hookups only at certain sites. Its a national campground so its beautiful with nice bathouses but not much activities other than hiking. There are a limited amount of sites that would accommodate a large RV, mostly tent sites. It is first come first serve with no…

Absolutely Stunning !

Completely free primitive camping. Me and my boyfriend had a difficult time finding the place at first. The coordinates took us to a Bible school. To get to the right place, start on Demory Road take a right onto Jim Lee Road then take the second left to get back into the public land area, follow…

perfect primitive waterfront campsite

What a gem! I was searching for a primitive spot to camp on for two nights with my dog where I could relax by the water and this checked all the boxes. I stayed here 6/4-6/6/2021.

The exact GPS coordinates for my spot were 36.2916742,-84.0133668. I arrived around 5pm on 6/4.

The perfect hideaway

Really loved staying here- close enough to the beautiful hikes and climbs of the area, and far enough to feel really private and woodsy. Since it was so warm, we took a dip in the lake. Our site was spacious and pretty, with plenty of room for our two tents and a hammock. I will say we found a few…

Backwoods tent camping

We stayed at site B3 backwoods camp. Price was good. Site was the biggest they have. Downside big gravel rock road down a hill and up to get to the sites. They do have carts available at the front to help get your stuff to the site. Showers are clean as well as restrooms

Pretty good

We stayed here for 2 nights in May 2021. We got a pull thru spot near the play area. It was a nice spot. This place was nice, clean, and quiet. I just wish the staff gave us more information when we arrived. We got a map and were told to enjoy our stay, no park info or nearby info. We were from out…

Nice little campground

We camped here over the weekend. The campground is not very big, but the sites have electricity, water, a fire pit, a lantern pole, picnic bench, and a bearbox. Some of the sites are not very private or have much shade. Number 1 to 9 seem to be the best spots. Some of the campsites have also…

Great stay with silence

Campers paradise, with a FREE campground. Campsites are spacious depending on which one you get, and we'll spread out. Be wary of shy bears and bobcats.
