****READ THROUGH ENTIRE LISTING BEFORE BOOKING**** Haw Ridge is a mountain top camp site with a total of only two campsites. At a 4,550 foot elevation and with nearly 360 degree views, there is a perfect sunrise and sunset experience. With no light pollution the stargazing is amazing. You must have a 4WD with high clearance to reach the site. Please list what vehicle/vehicles you will be taking to site when you are booking. There is no parking at the bottom or anywhere else - only at the sites. On foggy mornings, the mist rolls right over the ridge top. There are 2 sites on one acre so plenty of space for social distancing! Rocky Fork State Park Tn. is just a short drive away for some great additional hiking , swimming and fishing. Enjoy the view and your stay!!

Beautiful views but not very privat
It was a great experience overall. Site 2 was pretty close to site 1. Thankfully no one booked site 1 but it would be not very private if another party had. It's a beautiful spot but some of the pictures people who have stayed posted, can mislead a bit. The beautiful overlook with no trees and the cross are technically another property and Peter says so in the post. Thankfully no one was staying on the other property but if someone was then we wouldn't be able to walk over and enjoy the view. That being said, the view was absolutely gorgeous. We saw the sunset and was amazing to see. Very thankful to see it. I just had a different impression coming in to this campsite and wanted to ensure people know.
