Family Campground on the Nolichucky River

Riverpark is a privately owned campground situated at the classic Big Rocks rapid on the Nolichucky river.  The top part of the campground is where you will find the camp store that has a nice selection of local crafts and goods for sale, as well as firewood, ice and many other camping necessities that you may need.  Also, the bath house, which is probably the cleanest bathroom you will ever find at a campground is up top.  In the lower section of the campground there are pull through sites, back in sites and of course the wonderful river front sites.  There are no life guards on duty and the river is wild so use at your own risk.  That said, depending when you visit the water maybe suitable for swimming, other times not so much. If you are into whitewater kayaking, be sure to bring your play boat. However, there is no day use available for anyone who is not staying at the campground, unless you are visiting someone who is staying at Riverpark. So no park and play available here.  The prices vary depending on the site, but all sites have full hookups including premium cable television. Base Wi-Fi is available as part of your site fee, but if you plan to stream videos or need faster internet, it is available for an additional fee that can paid for through following the prompts with no trip to the office necessary.
