State Park, so older and smaller sites

Beautiful park.  sites can be a little tight but there’s room.  Deer in the campground, falls are beautiful!

New campground, upgrades in progress

Important RV directions!
DO NOT follow your gps. There are signs that actually say “gps navigation not recommended”. There are sharp turns, steep (15%) grades and low, narrow overpasses. Best entry is to take 64 to 151 south, then turn in Beach Grove Rd.

Newish campground.  22 ( I believe) full hook up sites, lots of tent sites.  You can walk to the brewery.  

Devils Backbone picks up hikers on the AT, brings them in for free camping and showers, also offers a hikers breakfast.  Your bar mate may be a little rank but they have some stories,

Beach camping

600 sites but you better book early. This park is being renovated so expect construction. Lots of beach to walk, pavilions, showers and a jetty to fish off of.  Besides the campground, you can also go to the north end of town, access the beach and camp right in the Gulf.

Our favorite TN campground

GPin Oak Campground (there’s actually 4 campgrounds in the park). Large sites that aren’t crowded in together. Full hook ups, lake access. Cabins also available.

Lakeside camping

Beautiful second campground, part of Pickwick Landing State Park. Over half the campsites are on the water. Older campground, sites are a little uneven. Boat launch on site. 4 unisex bathrooms, could use some updating.  Primitive camping, no electric or water. A few sites are big enough for a small RV.

Newly renovated

Nice level campsites with white rock. Primitive camping, no water or electric. Not big enough for RVs. Nice bathrooms, excellent showers.  

Very pretty with lots of hiking trails and a lake for fishing.

Big, clean. Plenty of room.

There is not a bad site at Pin Oak Campground in NTSP. Situated on a lake with a dock available. Good fishing, swimming.

Mall sites are large and level and not crowded at all. Our favorite getaway close to home.

Full hookups available. Horses welcome.

This is one of 5 organized campgrounds with full hookups that accept reservations. There are many other smaller campgrounds with toilets and the entire recreational area allows dispersed camping with a permit.
