Best Kept Secret In NE Tennessee
This is the best place to go off grid for a while. Great camp host and peaceful surroundings. There is no phone signal. When you live your life by the phone this is the best way to unplug and enjoy the outdoors. If you have to have a signal, you can drive to the top of the mountain and get your messages.

Beautiful Setting
We have stayed in a few TVA campgrounds. Never been disappointed and this one was just as well maintained as all the others. The setting was beautiful. My husband was able to put his kayak in right from our campsite. Even the day use picnic places were beautiful. You will not be disappointed with this campground. Beware you will most likely not have very good connectivity with your phone though.

Hidden Jewel
This is a beautiful place to camp. It’s quiet, relaxing and just gorgeous. If you need relaxation this is the place to be. The fishing wasn’t great this time but they were raising and lowering the water so I think that had something to do with it but we still enjoyed it very much.

Beautiful Spot
Really nice TVA facility with level gravel pads, 30 amp & water. Sites along the river, so peaceful and relaxing. As mentioned no WiFi, Verizon ok for text and calls. Accepts Golden Pass. Really enjoyed this park.

Hidden Gem!
Don't tell anyone about this place, keep it secret! All sites on the lake; quiet, cool in the summer with cool breezes from the lake (water temp in the 40s year-round). Great trout fishing and kayaking. Wonderful hosts, very accomodating. No wi-fi, cell service iffy. Just wish there was an attachable water hose at the dump station to flush black tanks.
