With more than 20,000 acres of Wilderness in Citico Creek and Joyce Kilmer-Slickrock, this area provides ample opportunities for solitude and backcountry experiences. Catch both native and stocked trout in Citico Creek and its rugged tributaries, and fish for small-mouth bass and catfish in the creek’s lower reaches.

These campsites are extremely spread out, allowing for private camping. No hookups, but a majority of the 14 sites are on the creek itself. Could not recommend Citico Creek more.
This campground is great for being right next to great day hikes and easy access to Citico Creek, which was just across the gravel road from our site. However- be aware that many of the sites are free, which draws some of East Tennessee's most, ahem, interesting inhabitants to the area! Being a native, it didn't shake me too much.. But if you don't want to mingle with rednecks, this may not be for you :)
