Amazing place for family picnics!!


Currently undergoing mass renovations and upgraded but for the best.


Great if you want a lot of amenities like a shower, pool and playground. But for $60 a night I can get a hotel.


Very few sites and stuck very tight between the highway and the river.


the sites are very close together and not by any running water like Elkmont. A lot of activities to do there though.


This backcountry site is nice with easy access by boat.

Easy access

Nice for short boat ride across the lake but not much there.

Stopping point

Great half way point between Cosby Shelter and Newfound Gap. Outhouse needs cleaned out though.


Good for a day out and back. But the view isn’t so good once you get there.


Absolutely everything about is amazing.


Bery nice short hike from Newfound Gap to get to the shelter. About half way to Clingmans Dome. Has a water source.


I’ve been camping ther since I was a kid. By far the most amazing campground around.

No shade

Nice sites on the lake with a boat ramp but almost no trees.


Nice campground but you have to get there early to get a site.


This campground is now closed.

First come first served

Great out of the way campground with a nice river. But very few sites and is first come first serve. So if you don’t get there early you are SOL.


This campground has been closed for the past few years now.


Not an outdoor place at all. Very few trees and nothing more than a bunch of locals that don’t respect the quiet hours. The one time I stayed there saw the police get called there twice. And was only ther one night.

Short hike

The campground has been closed for the last few years. The views are great but the hike to the tower is very short. for some good bouldering walk past the tower through the wood to some fun small bluffs.
