Camp Chet was founded with the purpose to help people encounter God through outdoor experiences. It encompasses 994 acres of private forested land on Whitwell Mountain, which is part of the Cumberland Plateau in Southeast Tennessee.    Take a hike on miles of trails comprised of forest paths, old wagon roads, or coal mining roads.  If you find a chunk of coal on the ground feel free to take it home with you as a souvenir.  If you are a history buff, you may be interested in discovering previous caretakers from the late 1800's and early 1900's in nearby cemeteries.   The camp ground is on top of a mountain, and you will have to go through a locked gate and drive over a mile and half on a bumpy gravel/dirt road. You will be most comfortable in a vehicle that is suitable for rugged terrain. Day trips less than an hour away include the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga, Rock City, Ruby Falls, Nickajack Lake and Bat Cave among many others.  Come to hike, relax, bike, explore, and recharge.

The Kolts at Camp Chet
Best camping I ever had
I love everything about this place. The nature around the cabin is amazing. We had a rainy day that we thought will be rough to keep kids inside but it turned out to be a great rainy day. Me and my hubby stayed on the little porch and watched the beautiful and peaceful rain while our children were playing. It was the most relaxing day. We didn’t had much time to explore the trails but after the rain we had 3 waterfalls around to explore. After 2 days of being there I felt so calm and relaxed. It recharged me for sure. Also the hosts Robert and Ruth were very kind and helpful. I can’t wait to book the next trip. Thank you Robert and Ruth, your place is a complete connection with the wonders of nature.

Enjoyed every bit of it
I loved it and cant wait to get back. I might go ahead and book my next visit! This was exactly what the doctor recommended. It was so peaceful surrounded by nature for the weekend and the view of the stars I will always remember. Thanks having me! And I can tell the hosts really care about the experience. Trails are awesome

RV Boondocking/Tent 1 at Camp Chet
We loved this camp site. We were surprised that they had water and electricity although we were prepared with our solar panels. Robert was very nice and we used some of his firewood that he under a tarp until ours dried out. The hikes were well marked and fun. We will be back.

RV Boondocking/Tent 1 at Camp Chet
Beautiful, quiet campsite. We stayed at one of the boondocking sites. Very private, had a great view. The pictures don't do it justice. Robert and Ruth have extensive well marked trails throughout the property.

Relaxing with nature
Robert and Ruth were great hosts. They were both very kind and helpful. We were shown around the property on an atv tour and given a history of the property and it’s former owners. The campsite was clean, well supplied, and we had it all to ourselves. There were charming touches all around the camp like hand carved faces in tree trunks, farm fresh eggs in your cabin, and games to play while relaxing under the pavilion. It was awesome to be able to take a hike with our dogs and let them roam free. We enjoyed this peaceful and relaxing vacation in the mountains.

Had a great time, the hosts were very available and communicative and made sure that we had everything we needed. The cabins were situated where you couldn’t see any others, it was very peaceful and quiet. The cabin was very well insulated and the bed was very comfortable and everything was neat and tidy. Great experience overall!
