Best for self-contained campers. There are no toilets, showers, or potable water at this Hipcamp.
Located deep withing the mountains of Crossville, TN is a failed housing development where previous owners were spending a fortune for property tracks of land expecting them to gain some insane amount of value before the housing crash of 2008. All that is left is the "trails" that were suppose to be roads and other types of development. Instead, all you have now is forest and mountains with the peace of quiet that comes with total isolation but is actually within 10 miles of a major city should you feel the urge for modern conveniences. It's as raw of a campsite as you can get, but still easy to find on the GPS because the non-existent roads are still drive-able to some extent through the woods with GPS as a guide. It's an adventure just trying to find the place, but very peaceful and nature abundant.Oh, don't expect anything here. It's just a campsite in the middle of no where Tennessee. The only thing you can expect to see is a lot of trees and the only thing you will hear is Nature. Finding the site is half the fun because you will be laughing when you drive there. It looks like you just decided to drive right off the road into the middle of the woods for some odd reason. Will certainly give you friends and family a laugh when you arrive, but rest assured, that unmarked drive through the woods is an actual road, it just won't look like it. You will certainly see a lot of trees I suppose, those things are everywhere here.

Failed Development Campsite
It was a very unique place. Calm and quiet. The only down side is can't have a fire. But a great host and a great location.
