This site is at the base of a mountain with views of a gully and an easy walking trail. The entrance is in a quiet neighborhood, the parking spot is about 30' from the road. There is a visual barrier that offers privacy for use of the fire ring behind it. This site has been cleared of vegetation and is as flat as this land gets.

This site is at the base of a mountain with views of a gully and an easy walking trail. The entrance is in a quiet neighborhood, the parking spot is about 30' from the road. There is a visual barrier that offers privacy for use of the fire ring behind it. This site has been cleared of vegetation and is as flat as this land gets.

If you just need a place to park before continuing on, this is what you're looking for with a pleasant view! We recommend tent campers check out our other listings (Wooded campsite & Secluded Grove). If the tent sites higher up are booked, then their cars could be there & you may encounter them if they go to the vehicle in the morning.

Please pack out your trash. Fires prohibited except in fire rings where brush has been cleared 1 ft away. Any dead wood on the ground may be burned. We have a hose near the campsite that connects to a rain barrel; it may have a little algae in it. We're also less than 5 miles away from multiple grocery stores that sell water. There is also spring at Murphy's Hollow (off the Slygo exit) that produces fresh, cold, and free water year round. You can use the bathroom anywhere, but please bury it. This place is perfect if you are looking for a digital detox! While we are within range for cellular service, there is no wifi unless you bring it and don't expect electricity.

Nearby

We are a few exits down the highway from the TN river where you can fish, paddle, & swim. There is also fishing in the lake inside the Cloudland Canyon State Park, which is less than 5 miles away. 8 miles away, on top of Lookout Mountain is a famous hang gliding school so you can mark that off your bucket list. Bouldering and rock climbing can be done on Lookout & Signal Mountain. Please do not climb our cliffs, we have not tested their structural integrity, will not provide climbing gear, and will not be held accountable for injuries. While you're welcome to mountain bike on our land, we have no developed trails for it. If you want trails, we recommend going to the next mountain over, Racoon Mountain. The Racoon Mountain TVA has trails maintained by SORBA. Speaking of Racoon Mountain, there is a cave system in it much more extensive than ours. There are multiple routes and tour options including wilder cave "spelunking" that are available for a fee. There is also a wild cave to spelunk inside Cloudland Canyon. Russel Cave is nearby too. Please no hunting or rock climbing on this property.
