Just Amazing!!!!

This was my favorite spot we camped in all year! They lock the gate at dusk, so make sure you arrive earlier or you won’t get in!!! You can reserve your spot, they have plenty of room between sites, there’s some good hiking, the creek runs through so you can hear the running water all night. Bathroom were immaculate, they clean them religiously. Can’t say enough about this gem!

Excellent campground and people.

Secluded campground with some of the best employees you could possibly ask for.

Road less traveled

First time at Frozen Head State Park. We stayed at Flat Rock group campground #6. Only 3 of us so over kill on the group site but we preferred it over the main campground -Big Cove. Although it was a nice little campground. We had access to the bath house and all the amenities of main campground. Flat Rock is primitive, with only a standard port a potty at the car parking area.

Lush trees, nice little stream/creek. Great hiking and best of all the whole are is rather secluded, not touristy :) We plan on going back in a few weeks

Unexpectedly Very Nice

I stayed at this campground for one night this past spring during April. My friends and I went rock climbing at the Obed and originally we were going to stay at the usual climbers campground spot. After checking it out and realizing we were unprepared to set up a tent in a gravel mud puddle we checked out frozen head's campground and it was so nice. The place we set up our tent was relatively dry for the cold, wet weather (about as good as it gets). The fire rings and picnic tables were great and so were the hiking trails. The best part was how big, nice, and clean the bathrooms were. The bathrooms were kept extremely warm for the weather.

TLDR (Too Long Don't Read)

  • IDEAL location to camp if you are climbing at the obed
  • AMAZING bathrooms especially if you are camping in cold wet weather
  • would 100% return if I am looking for camping in TN
  • GREAT price
Serene, beautiful area

Only spent a night there, but were impressed by the beautiful setting, quiet area.

Did camp in the overflow area as that was all that was available - port-a-potty was not flat so a bit awkward.

Go there every year!

We have my husbands family reunion there every year and camp for a week while there. Campsites are clean and spacious with gravel pad. Two shepherds hooks for hanging lanterns and trash bags. Bathrooms are always clean and in working conditions. Be advised, the last two years there’s been baby copperhead snakes that hang around outside the bath house at night.

Awesome time

We had a great time. The gates get locked so make sure you arrive early. We got locked out and couldn't contact anyone. Other than that first night, we had a great time. Look forward to our next visit.

Frozen Head

A truly beautiful well kept secret of TN. Beautiful grounds and wonderful waterfalls!!
