The campground also has a small market, so if you forget any essentials, you can easily pick them up on-site.

    For those who prefer a bit more comfort, there are RV sites with full hookups available. Just be aware that maneuvering larger rigs might be a bit tricky, but manageable with some patience. The bathhouses are functional, though some visitors have noted they could use a bit of sprucing up.

    The nearby Crabtree Falls is a must-see, offering one of the best waterfall hikes in the southeast. The trail is accessible and provides stunning views, especially in the fall. It's a short trip from the campground, making it easy to explore without straying too far from your base.
