Camp Tuck is a private secluded campsite for one.  We love this special spot so much that we wanted to share it with others.  An individual 3/4 acre campsite directly on the beautiful Tuckaseegee River in the Great Smoky Mountains.   No other campers, just you, the incredible view and soothing sound of the river and the beauty of nature.  If you long for peace and tranquility, then this beautiful place is for you. This site is for Class A, B and C RV's up to a maximum of 30ft in length, and Camper Vans and Camper Trucks with onboard bathroom facilities.  Please note that Travel Trailers and 5th wheels are not allowed due to the site configuration and access. No tent campers unless with an RV that meets the above guidelines, due to no bathroom or shower facilities onsite.   Beautiful view on the Tuckaseegee river. The river is about 100-150 feet wide and flowing constantly. Located in Whittier, NC which is in between Bryson City and Cherokee. Near Great Smoky Mountains National Park (the most visited National park in the US) with every imaginable outdoor activity within minutes.  This campsite is for people who love peace, solitude and beauty but want to be within minutes of attractions and restaurants. Harrah's casino in Cherokee is only 15 minutes away. This site is for Class A, B and C RV's up to a maximum of 30ft in length, and Camper Vans and Camper Trucks with onboard bathroom facilities.  Please note that Travel Trailers and 5th wheels are not allowed due to the site configuration and access.

Fish the Tuck
Camp Tuck was the perfect spot for our weekend of fly fishing. The campsite was clean and well-maintained. We enjoyed being able to access the Tuck directly from the campsite and the feeling of remoteness, even though we were just a mile from the highway. Will definitely consider staying again when back in the area.

The sounds of the river were extremely peaceful. Two fire rings with one at the river and one up on flat land. I’d recommend bringing wood from near by stores. Be weary of the driveway down into your spot, at night it seems like you’re nose diving into nothing, just trust that the road is there and go for it.

We had a nice stay on John’s land. Even though it was right off the road, we had privacy and very little road noise. The view was amazing and so peaceful. We saw a bald eagle twice which was an awesome experience. It was a great spot and I’d definitely recommend it. We would love to visit again!

Amazing! The view. The river. The quiet. Close to town but you would never know it. I absolutely plan to stay here again.

Best spot yet!
We absolutely loved our stay at Camp Tuck! The host’s directions were spot on but we still managed to miss the turn into the driveway. I’m glad we did, because it appears very daunting coming from that direction. Due to our mistake we had come back the opposite way, passing the property on the right, then do it all again-BUT coming from the wrong direction we could see there was in fact a driveway, haha. We have a 28ft Class A, we took it slow and had no issues getting in or out. The camp site is not far off the road but because it sits so much lower, you don’t see or hear much traffic. The driveway is paved and the site itself is well packed gravel. Having full hook ups was fantastic and there’s also a picnic table and large fire pit. The path down to the river is steep but well kept. Part way down there’s a small landing area with a bench and near the water, another fire ring and large rocks where you can sit close to the river. Midday the water is low and slow moving. We were able to comfortably wade in some spots and let the dogs splash around. In the evenings the river rises and the current is much stronger. We enjoyed the peacefulness so much we didn’t leave but there’s plenty to do close by, although it feels like you’re very secluded. We saw one group of people on paddle boards but that was it. The sound of the river is incredible and at night, the sky is super clear. We had some beautiful sunsets as well. We’re glad we found this spot and hope to visit again!

Great spot on the river. Very well kept, with all hook ups. Seemed steep getting in/out at first but our class b van made it with no problem. We will be back!
