No low cars! Don't expect much but multiple sites are cleared. Some with picnic tables.

Not a campground

We were unable to make it up in our car. Roads were very rough and dangerous. We passed several jeeps before one drug addict told us we could make it the road was washed out and we would need a 4x4. After further inquire we learned there was not a campground at all but a local spot to go mudding and do drugs. Don't waste your time and tires

Perfect Appalachian primitive camping

This campground is in Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest, not far from 81. The camping is very basic, just a pit toilet and a water pump, all very wooded and, all spots very close to the road.

Yay: Simple and beautiful. On site there isn’t much to do but there are tons of hiking trails nearby, including the AT, plus fishing. All sites are shady.

Nay: FYI closed winter. This is dispersed camping so there can be a lot of trash :( We’ve been here twice and once it was pristine and once it was a disaster (broken bottles to shotgun shells). The drive there is on a forest service road so may be an issue with a big RV or a low car if it’s been rainy. No reservations.

Surprise: Super cute little town nearby, Helen. Hike or drive to the Holston Mountain Fire Tower!
