Get Lost or Find Yourself. Sway Camping is a private, Off Grid camping experience in Rock Island TN. Situated between Isha Yoga center, Fall Creek Falls, and Rock Island state park, this property is something special. Each campsite offers a private space perfect for getting away, or large enough for family and groups. Pet Friendly property with lots of room to be a part of nature along the beautiful Rocky River. Camp along the river or up in your own private forest. One of the darkets skies around so be ready for some stargazing at night by the fire. This is a property I purchased in 2018 to create a camping experience that reflected the image of camping as a kid. This isn’t a "hotel without walls." This is real camping. No phone signal. No electric wires. Just nature and beauty in a quiet environment. Get lost or find yourself relaxing along the Rocky River. Stay in a hammock, a tent, camper, RV, or one of our cabins. Privacy and freedom is what we are about. Pet friendly camping that should be shared, but please don't tell everyone you know. Only your favorite people.. Then come camp!

This was the second I camped here and it’s great — pretty land lots of trees, and Chris is nice and helpful. My dog loves it too.

Beautiful site but don’t buy extras
Beautiful site, but host was a bit money-hungry. I listed my guests as 2 on the reservation, but was told by the host upon arrival that my “extra guest” (we only had 2 people) would be an additional $15 and that i would need to venmo him. I also chose to purchase eggs and firewood, which was $11, and was given 5 massive chunks of wet firewood which wouldn’t burn and never received any eggs. Overall we loved the site but wouldn’t recommend buying any extras through the host.

Camping under the stars
My husband and I were passing through Tennessee on a long road trip and found Chris’s land. We wouldn’t arrive till past 1am and he was understanding and helpful with directions. It was pretty easy to navigate through the camp sites. He told us to not stress if we can’t find the exact spot in the middle of the night and to camp out. Which helped make this stress free. We would recommend this private, off the grid, experience!

Sway Forest Private Camp
30 minutes from either Rock Island or Fall Creek Falls, very well maintained roads on the property. Sites are spacious and private - anything from an open meadow for stargazing, secluded creekside sites and hammock sites in a pine forest! Pretty location, host was very attentive (though we never had need to bother him while there). Highly recommend if you want to primitive camp away from crowds and use as a base camp for the mid-plateau region
