Wonderful way to enjoy the Smokey’s

We spent the weekend there on two sites. One was tent only and one allowed for small trailers. It’s well shaded, which in our case blocked the breeze we found along the valley in the motor loop. It was a bit muggy during the day but was great at night.

The staff were awesome and helpful. The store sells firewood and ice but they ran out of firewood Saturday morning. It’s about an hour round trip to the closest place in Townsend to stock up, so I suggest bringing in your own.

Great place for Labor Day weekend

Spent two nights here for Labor Day 2020. We stayed on the center strip in the primitive area. The facilities were well maintained and clean. Each site has a concrete picnic table, fire ring, and a moveable lantern hook. The primitive area has several water spigots to use (near each restroom and a few in between).

The outer loop sites all have electric and water hookups, but the restrooms are all on the upper level where the primitive sites are. If you don’t have your own bathroom, it’s a bit of a hill to climb and there’s only a couple spots to do it.

Overall, we loved it and we’ll be back for sure.

Beautiful lakefront park

Had a great time here for a weekend. Very quiet area. Most of the sites are up a steep bank from the water, so it’s a bit tricky to get a kayak in the water from camp, but it is doable.

The place to stay on the Ocoee

Takes a bit to get up and down the mountain, so make sure you’ve got everything you need with you.

Gorgeous campground. The hosts were great and checked in with us a few times.

There’s a great mountaintop lake with picnic pavilions near the D loop.

There’s the reason it’s the most visited park in Tennessee

Many reasons, actually. There’s tons of hiking trails, plenty of water to play on, lots of great day use areas, and a general store with everything you might need.

Gem of a campground, minutes from the city

The campgrounds are spread across two islands, many sites are directly on the water. There are a few sites that are basically in the middle of a parking lot with no shade any time of day. Anything water-adjacent is a great spot.

There’s a fairly new 9-hole disc golf course, several boat docks, and a couple of pavilions available.

Hamilton County residents get a discounted rate on site rental.

Gorgeous spot for primative camping

The closeness to the river is the main attraction here. It’s ever-present sounds make it easy to forget everything.
