The Gee Creek Campground is apart of the Hiwassee/Ocoee State Park. The state park/campground adjoins the Cherokee National Forest and sits on the north bank of the Hiwassee River outside of Benton, TN. The park has a nice size bath house that is heated during the winter. The showers are push valve with no temperature control, so you will periodically have to push the valve for water. There is an A and B loop. The sites on the North side of loop A are fairly uneven and would require a significant amount of leveling blocks if using a camper. There is a nice nature trail that loops around the park. The park also offers a boat launch for river access. At the visitor center, fire wood can be purchased. There is also a bike maintenance stand at the visitors center. Just past the park, lies the Cherokee National Forest where there are many options for outdoor recreation. Potable water is available from spickets placed around each loop. Each campsite has a concrete picnic table, fire ring, and lantern post. Verizon service was moderate.
First time renting a teardrop trailer and camping in it, lot was tricky for us to back into but we managed and the set up was great with a fire ring, picnic table, potable water and hook up. Also a great view. Nice and quiet site with bathrooms and showers nearby.
Beautiful park to pass through for Christmas night on the Lake with snow!! Beautiful site with lots of trees. They communicated with me because we were getting in on Christmas night & can’t wait to return to stay a few nights next time.
Jake Best was a campground I had been wanting to visit for a while and I was not disappointed. The campground is in the Citico creek wilderness, and is right on the river. The area is absolutely beautiful. The water is crystal clear, and the area is known for trout fishing and big game hunting, in fact the campground is regularly full of hunters. The campground is small, and has a vault toilet. The campground is first come first served, and is $8 per night.
The sites are spacious, and all looked mostly level. There is no water or electric hookups, it is primative. There is no cell service here, but you can get radio reception. If you are looking to escape civilization and get out in the woods, this place is perfect!
RV/tent camping and cabin rentals. Campsites had wifi and pretty good tv signal. There's also a lodge/hotel on site with a restaurant, with gorgeous views overlooking the valley below. Camping sites are spaced well apart with electric, water and fire rings. The campgrounds also feature a bathhouse and laundry.
Begin your Appalachian Trail journey here with 604 steps to the top of a beautiful waterfall.
If you’re looking for quiet, at least during the winter months, this is a beautiful resort with plenty of space between neighbors and it seems that all sites have solid views. There are some permanent residents living there and they are all nice with well kept and cool homes. Each site has its own dump which was great. Water was clean with great pressure. Electric was solid. Aerial photos courtesy of SweetDroneChicago on Instagram.
The entrance to this park is right across the street to an entrance to the Appalachian Trail. A beautiful trout stream runs through the park, close to all the campsites. Bathrooms and showers are clean. Wonderful place to tent camp, van camp, or tow a SMALL trailer to (a pop-up would be perfect). The road to this campground is very narrow, the hill is very steep, and there is at least one very tight hairpin turn. Unless there is another way into this lovely park that I am unaware of, I would not attempt to tow a 5th wheel or other large trailer to this location. Place is beautiful though. Tow your pop-up or pitch a tent. You'll be glad you came.
