Roan Mountain State Park is situated in the Appalachian Mountains of Northeast Tennessee. This heavily wooded area is known for its rhododendrons and hiking trails. Roan Mountain Campground is open to RVs and tent campers. This state park provides both full hookup campsites and primitive camping.
I camped here over the weekend with a friend and our dogs.
We were in campsite 62. Our loop was very private and shaded. The only negative point was the street light right across from us. It was pretty bright at night. Our campsite had a picnic table, a fire pit, a water spigot and electricity. There is also a little creek nearby, which was perfect for the dogs.
The campground is very well maintained, and the bathroom were spotless. The staff, ranchers and volunteers, were super friendly. If you forgot something, there is a little camp store on the property.
Some of the campsites are directly on the water, but they were not very shaded.
The park also has events scheduled. They had a cloggers dance group when we were there, which was very nice.
There are a lot of things to do in the area. Some of the hiking trails even start in the campground. You can also explore the grist mill with a nature trail or an old homestead. You have access to the AT about 10 miles away.
Overall it is a very nice and clean campground in a beautiful state park. We would camp here anytime again.
Roan Mountain is a beautiful campground with wooded sites, some with water views and access! Next time we’d definitely try for a water site. We loved Roan Mountain with its rocky streams, shady secluded sites, and winding wooded walks. We will definitely be back.
I couldn't believe how big the spaces are. And they have fresh water on each site. My family loved it. We are coming back
We camped in the upper section. Our site #44, was huge. The spaces between the sites made it feel very private. The entire park provided lots of roadways and trails that our pups enjoyed. The camp staff were friendly and helpful. I would rate this as one of the best campgrounds we have stayed at.
One of my top 5 state campgrounds. Will definitely be back again soon. Wild panoramic views and access to the Appalachian trail only a few miles away
This is one of my favorite campgrounds. Family and friends try to go several times a year. Due to its popularity, make sure you make reservations n advance.
Paved roads and sites. Both 30 and 50 amp service along with water. There is a dump station as you exit the camping area.
Park is well maintained, bathhouses are clean with LOTS of hot water. Water pressure is not as good as it used to be. WIFI can be spotty to weak.
The park is very nice , very clean. There are shower facilities there . We hiked there, the mountain were cold even in July. Beautiful place !
One the best run parks in the state. Forget TV and phone service is spotty but who cares, the park is great. Hike, fish or just relax
Awesome campground with electric water & the occasional WiFi. They have a dump station. Great park tons of trails, they also have a seasonal swimming pool.
