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!

Open space and very close to the Isha Temple. Chris was a gracious host and very kind with a positive energy. The only thing to mention is the cost. This may be the most expensive campsite in Tennessee.

Naturalist Camping
Chris’ land is a fantastic place to camp. The sites are quiet, secluded, and beautiful. Our site was a leisurely five minute walk to the creek that passes through the area. There are plenty of places to dip in the cool water and lots of huge boulders scattered around to relax and sunbathe on. We camped in a small stand of pines that afforded us a ton of room for our site. The location is far enough away from light pollution that stargazing from the close by field was a wonderful experience.

Peaceful Camping Getaway
Our camping experience on Chris's land was absolutely amazing. The environment was quiet, peaceful, and stunning. Chris is just as remarkable as his land; he took the time to get to know us and made sure we were well taken care of. He's truly a wonderful person. We highly recommend this spot for a memorable and serene camping trip. Chris, we will be back soon!!

Star field!
The star field was amazing! Even on a cloudy and rainy weekend we got to see some amazing constellation views. Chris was so sweet. He even found me farm fresh eggs while I was there. My kiddo didn’t want to leave the camp site.
