True West is THE premiere campground in Big South Fork. Our legendary customer service is known far and wide. On top of that, we are adjacent to one of the best kept secrets of the southeast, Big South Fork National River and Recreational Area. Whether you are into Hiking, Biking, River Riding, Trail Riding, Rock Climbing or star gazing, you'll find it in Big South Fork. There are also nearby ATV trails available in Pickett State Park and Black House. Motorcycle touring groups also find the area a great place to ride. And we're right in the middle of it all! You won't find better Hospitality and HORSEpitality® anywhere in the country!
True West is centrally located by Big South Fork with easy access to a great many outdoor adventures. Our facilities include 33 easy access, level RV and camping sites, all with water and electric, some with sewer hookups. Our shower houses are very clean and provide plenty of hot water! We have two stocked fishing ponds that you can fish in - no license required. Our mercantile is stocked with gifts, home decor, yard decor, camping supplies, horse tack, snacks, maps, and Western wear. We have soft serve ice cream in the store as well as an ATM. Ice and firewood are also available. All campers have access to our large enclosed and covered deck for gathering, attending one of our many events or watching a movie on our big screen. For those who use it, there is a WIFI hot spot on the covered deck and a Verizon "hot spot" where cell phone signals are hard to come by!
Don't have a Camper or Living Quarter? We've got you covered! We have lodging available to rent. Many different options to choose from. There is the Marshal Suite in the main building, the tucked-in-the-woods Miner's Shack Cabin or a camper you can rent that will sleep a family of up to 10. We also offer the unique experience of sleeping in covered wagons or teepee - but with some creature comforts of home (beds!!).
If you are in need of horse facilities, we have two large barns with a total of 67 stalls, each with 2 bucket hooks for your water and feed, a saddle rack and a bridle hook. We have a few extra large stalls, as well as two large horse wash areas, and a large 60' round pen.
True West also offers parking and the use of the common area to those just passing through for the day and needing access to the trails.
