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.

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!

Lovely Getaway
The place was beautiful and extremely quiet. A good change from our usual noisy campground experience. Robert, the host, was very accommodating with lots of thoughtful things that helped us have a good time. Not to mention, it was our first time using an outhouse and we were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness of it. The night we spent was simple, relaxing, and just what we needed to cure our cabin fever!
