Your campsite is located on a working farm, with pigs, chickens, mini cows, a mini donkey, ducks, and our orchards filled with mulberries, persimmon, pear trees and chestnuts. The RV spot is located adjacent to our 3-acre pond stocked with bass, crappie, catfish and brim; excellent fishing for the kids.
Nearby are 2 seperate spots for fishing. One spot is great for wading and fly fishing. The other has great spot to put your boat in or fish from the dock on a feeder to the Tennessee river.
Hiking around our 17-acre farm is an easy walk, but 15 minutes away is a great spot with streams and some great trails.
Breakfast from the farm can be arranged for 15$ per person. It will be a seasonal menu possibly including bacon, pork chops, sausage and fresh fruit all grown on the farm. Learning opportunities also exist regarding permaculture, trees, and animal husbandry. Contact us for more information.

The vibe at Lakeside Pigs Pears & Fishing
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
I took my two teenage sons and their two friends camping here this past weekend for one night and we had an excellent time! If you're looking for a quiet place to get away from the city and gaze at the stars without light pollution this is it; and it was perfect for us! We had access to water and electricity and a bathroom if we walked a small distance. If you're looking for a primitive secluded spot, this is not for you.
Our host, Jason and his father were so very nice and helpful. They provided us a choice of place on his property to camp and gave us firewood which I had planned to bring but had forgot! He showed us around the property and showed us his animals which included pigs, cows, chickens, ducks, and donkey named Rosie. Jason's father gave us a bass fishing lesson and gave us some wax worms to help us find the bass.
We selected a place next to the fishing pond and the boys caught 4 bass and one small bream. You have to throw the bass back, but can keep anything else you catch. This was fine with us as we just enjoy the catch and were glad not to clean fish!
Unlike a state park campsite, there is no built in grill, campfire circle site or picnic table so be prepared accordingly. We brought our own camp stove to cook on and made our own campfire site by gathering rocks from around the pond. The next day I had the boys put the rocks back.
The next day as we were packing up our host came to check on us and brought us a dozen fresh eggs from the farm! Thank you Jason for being such an excellent host, we enjoyed your farm!!
