Getting away from it all

I started out coming here with my grandparents in 1978 every summer spending 2 to 4 weeks during the summer up here. Back then it was was all primitive camp sites with no electricity or water hook ups. There were 3 loops with campsites A,B,& C loops each loop had a women's & a men's…

Amazing location in the Smokies

We stayed for a week on an RV back in site. The sites can be soemwhat close together, but with this mostly just being home base, we didn’t find it to be a problem. Our oldest rented a bell tent, and when I say they are the cutest camping spot, I am not exaggerating. The bell tents sit on the river…

Quiet, isolated, simple.

Basic campground, only a space to park, put your tent and have a fire. Only “amenities” are vault toilet. 

Very secluded and quiet.

Very friendly and helpful staff

We stayed here may 9- 12, having to reserve in January I figured it would’ve been warmer, but we still had a great time - just didn’t get to enjoy the swimming hole. The grounds are well kept and staff professional. We stayed on site 9 right on creek , very scenic and sound of water was…

Relaxing

To be honest I own the place! But I do not live on the property so this is my get away spot. I am a hammock camper so I love being in trees. I have cleaned out about an acre for tent or hammock camping, another acre for shared areas, and the pasture has about an acre wide open for dogs, horses…

Cool campground

We stayed at site L12 on the Long Arm Campground #2. The paddle in was ok but there was some boat traffic. The site was very nice, however, it would be better to choose a site from 14 or higher. Sites 11, 12, and 13 are nice but the landing is in a shallow algae filled cove. Not ideal for…

Loud but Beautiful

This is a very popular destination. So, the campground was pretty loud and crowded at night until the lights out call. The lake views with the mountains in the background are perfect. Tad cool in the evenings, which would be perfect in the hot months. We learned that the other campground loop…

Great creek side camping

Nice, clean, well appointed campground. They lead you to your spot and even helped us back in. Our spot is right on a creek. It’s high at the moment but we were told it’s great for tubing and fishing. There is a little camp store and lots of games and live music on Saturday night this week! Would…

Birthday Weekend

Camping was fine. The general store has everything from meat to milk. We were literally right on the creek, love the sound of rushing water. The weekend we stated the pool was closed, the kids had a good time in the game room.

Wonderful!

We stayed in Big Creek for 3 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. The camp is beautiful and you are surrounded by the magical sounds of rushing water. There are two creeks nearby, one big and one small. We spent one day simply enjoying the campground. There are some trails nearby but most…

Beautiful!

This was my first-ever camping trip and I’m glad that it was here. We stayed at site 11 in location 2 on the Lake James campgrounds; it’s a paddle-in-only location. Getting there required canoeing in, which was easy for us to do on the lake’s dock. (We rented canoes from CBS a ways away.) The trip…
