    Welcome to TVA Public Land - Fork Bend in Tennessee! This spot is a hidden gem for those who love a bit of adventure and don't mind roughing it. Nestled in the woods, this area offers stunning views of the lake and a peaceful, remote atmosphere.

    The camping here is primitive, so don't expect any frills. There are no toilets, showers, or drinking water, so you'll need to come prepared. Fires are allowed, and you'll find several fire rings scattered around. It's a great place to pitch a tent or park an RV, but keep in mind that it's not big rig friendly.

    One of the standout features of Fork Bend is its natural beauty. The sunsets and sunrises over the water are absolutely breathtaking. The area is also pet-friendly, so feel free to bring your furry friends along for the adventure.

    Visitors have mentioned that the road leading to the campsites is a bit rough, but you don't necessarily need a 4x4 to get there. Just take it slow and steady. The campsites are spread out along a long dirt road, offering both shaded spots under the trees and open areas with lake views.

    While the area is beautiful, some campers have noted that there's quite a bit of trash around, so it might be a good idea to bring some extra trash bags and do a little cleanup. Despite this, many have found the experience here to be incredibly rewarding and peaceful.

    If you're looking for a quiet, scenic spot to camp for free, and you don't mind a bit of a challenge, TVA Public Land - Fork Bend is definitely worth checking out. Just remember to pack everything you need and leave no trace. Enjoy your stay!

      Find your balance at the height of adventure in the Equilibrium Escape! This unique site offers you the best of both worlds with the conveniences all campers appreciate but the rugged, super private experience only the great outdoors can give you! The site sits ontop of a ridge that has an elevation just over 1100ft and as you can imagine the views & serenity are outstanding! Besides being the ulitmate & absolute private site the abundance of wildlife will keep you amazed and thrilled, from Owls to Bobcat, Deer, Coyote, Fox and Hawks not to mention the variety of musical birds, your senses will take its own adventure just on all you hear. This site has multiple trails that level up and down throughout which will have markers to guide you through your hiking experience. A generous private firepit that offers the ability to enjoy primitive cooking and Forest Bartop that allows you to have a drink, eat your meal while overlooking treetops and the edge of the ridge. Although in the distance some road noise will be heard here and there or the Farmers dog give a bark, the seclusion of this forest jungle and cool breeze that gently passes through the trees will drown out all the background noise. If you are looking for the next level up in a camping experience that allows for you to TRULY unplug, unwind and recenter, The Equilibrium Escape is your next booking. This is an exclusive site that books only 15 nights a month and when you are here, you are the ONLY campers. You have a private span of nearly 8 acres.

      Please also note that your camp is actually on our Farm, therefore why we affectionately refer to it as 'The Farmers Forest'. We are true Farm to Table Cultivators that offer more than a point of sale or just production. We enjoy educating those who really want to learn how to manage livestock, compost, Forage for edibles and also have proper infrastructure. Private tours include a hike through the farm, meet and greets with our Animals with being informed of the care & husbandry of each stock and feel free to bring your camera, the Farmer here happens to be pretty good with photography. The memories from the Full experience of the Farmpsite you will not only enjoy, but also gain more practical knowledge to carry with you into the future. Please note, you're in the country. So cell service can be very spotty. US Cellular works great, AT&T and T Mobile sometimes can be 50/50.....Verizon will just plain not impress you.
