The national park is within walking distance and hosts some of the most beautiful scenery, amazing rock climbing, and challenging kayaking in East Tennessee. The campground is open all day every day. It is 5.00 per person, per night. Water and porta-potties available. ​Firewood is provided for fires at designated sites only. Reservations are not required. We cannot accommodate RVs or large pull behinds. Tear drops and small pop ups are fine. Thank you!

Mom and pop hippie brewery and camping

Love this fun little place! It even comes with a guard dog, Big. Super friendly dude. They are just getting their campgrounds back up and going. They are making new spots and just recently opened camping again. Great place to stay. They made me feel very comfortable being a female solo camper. They were super accommodating and helped me find the perfect spot to sling up my hammock. They had a great selection of beer, food, and even homemade ice cream. Bath house was clean and fresh cold water from the tap at the bar. Big bundles of good firewood. Wifi only at the brewery area which is perfectly fine for my camping style. They even had a band Friday night. I’ll definitely be back. The only thing I found to be four star instead of five is the mosquitoes. They were BAD. I sprayed down in deet multiple times and still had at least a dozen bites. Could be from the construction of new spots and the really wet weather recently but I’d recommend bringing lots of bug repellent stuff to help. Some of the spots aren’t very private or secluded if that’s something you prefer. There is some road noise but it’s not a busy road.

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!

Crazy cool camping PLUS a brewery!

This is a place you really need to experience! The campground is multi acres of woods, it’s first come first served, but it’s so large, I can imagine it ever being too crowded. The cost is $5 per person, paid via honor system in the mailbox when you enter. It’s perfect for tents. We were limited on site selection with our rooftop tent, and I saw a couple teardrop campers, but you can’t take anything larger. There are several structures on the property for gathering around a fire pit, if you want to be social, or just walk up to the brewery! The campground did offer a family/group camp site on the other side of the brewery, but I don’t know that this is a place for kids. It was pretty wild at night! A live band playing until the early morning hours, and drinks flowing among the thru hikers and rock climbers, bachelorette party group, and gypsies staying in the campground!

Two portable toilets were in the campground, they could use a good cleaning, but depending on the site you choose, you probably would be better off just using nature anyway.

The brewery serves beer that’s brewed on site, with hops also grown on site! Super cool! They have a food truck there too, where they serve pulled pork sandwiches, nachos, hot dogs and sausages, etc.

We will return to the Lilly Pad, but will take a tent and seek out a more secluded site, and will take advantage of the swimming hole, and the Obed River nearby!
