Elevations range from 750 to 5,500 feet.
The mountain town of Tellico Plains, less than 20 miles away, is known for its arts and crafts.
The campground is 18 miles off the Cherohala Skyway, a 43-mile National Scenic Byway stretching from Tellico Plains, Tennessee, to Robbinsville, North Carolina.

Its beautiful camping site, however, it floods with even a little rain. There needs a ditch around the road to keep the runoff from flooding the whole place
This is a large spacious campsite. We did not camp there, but stumbled upon it while out exploring. There are numerous fire pits, charcoal park grills and picnic tables. Very reasonably priced for a group camp. 2 portajons on site. No water or electric. River close by for swimming, playing, fishing. Also a small creek at the far end to play around in. Close to many trails but be aware there are many river crossing and you will get wet! Can’t wait to bring a Group of Girl Scouts down to camp here!
