3 Reviews of Tellico River Campgrounds
Rustic and wild

Tellico has a variety of camping options ranging from cabins that can be rented, to primitive camping with no running water, except the river. There is a camping store close to the cabins, and there are also RV sites. The North River area is more rustic and requires you to bring your shelter and supplies. There is a plethora of wildlife in the area, including some very curious black bears, so be prepared to store your food away so as to not attract their attention. The river is cold even on the hottest summer days, and can be a nice relief from the heat. Fishing requires a special permit, and there is a hatchery onsite that visitors can tour. There are hiking trails galore, and Bald River Falls is the perfect place for a family picture, or a even a selfie.

Mostly flat gravel lots.

Most locations are on the river, and even across the road you can still hear the peaceful sounds of the river. Most sites are $10/night and operate on an honor system where you fill out the application and put your cash in an envelope and put it in a box for the rangers to collect.
