Some sites better than others

The campground is quite secluded and only has 27 sites. On our stay during a holiday weekend, we learned that many of those were "locals" that have been coming for years and say it's the best campground around. The roads are rough to get there no matter which way you come, however a fair number of RV's still make it on the gravel, narrow, winding roads. While the campground doesn't have the mountain views of the smokies, we came for the elk which we saw tons of. There's multiple hiking trails near by as well as historical structures to visit. So there is plenty to do while camping here even though it's far from any services (be sure to get wood, ice, etc. before coming). 

Almost any of the sites on the outer portion of the campground are great (except for maybe site 19 next to the bathroom. The sites in the middle don't really have any privacy. The campground is completely level but sites still have a tent pad. 

Bathrooms are clean. Camphost was very knowledgeable. There are bears in the area, so all items need to be cleaned and put away overnight.

  • site 20 is straight ahead and 21 is to the left
  • site 21 is in the middle and 23 is to the left (20 is on the right)
  • Site 18 on the left with the RV
  • site 19 is right next to the road and bathroom, it would be my last pick for a site
  • the road that cuts through the middle of the campground is on the right
  • it's a short drive (a couple miles) to go the fields where elk come out to graze
  • A couple miles away you can park and wait for the elk to come out in the evening
  • site 13 was great
  • clean bathrooms with flushing toilets
  • dish sink
  • site 11
  • site 26. any of the sites in the middle portion have little privacy
  • site 3
  • site 4
  • site 5
  • the road where elk come to graze by the campground
  • you will see plenty of elk at the campground
  • an elk outside our tent when we woke up
