Little Bone Cave campground is in the mountains of Tennessee with hiking trails and a beautiful view located on 16 acres. This campground adjoins Bone Cave State Natural Area located in Van Buren County. Big Bone Cave is a 400 acre natural area with trails and a cave that contained bones of a giant ground sloth discovered in 1811 and is maintained by Rock Island State Park. The cave is not currently open to the public. Rock Island State Park (swimming, fishing and hiking) is only 6 miles from the campground and Fall Creek Falls State Park (swimming, fishing, hiking and home of the Annual Mountaineer Folk Festival) is a beautiful 25 mile drive through the winding roads and mountains of Van Buren county. A public boat ramp maintained by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency is two miles away to access the Caney Fork River. Come enjoy with friends and family. Campsite #1, "Valley View" is a Rv with 30 amp electric with sewer and water or it can be a primitive campsite that is a wide open space and is approximately 1-2 acres with a beautiful view overlooking the valley below. We do have electric, sewer and water 340 gl tank with a hose, a picnic table and a fire ring at this site. if you'd prefer, you can locate a spot of your choosing off the beaten path anywhere within our 16 acres (ask the hostess for details). We now have rv hook up with a 30 amp electric service, sewer and water available. We have wildlife such as bobcats, coyotes, deer, owls, snakes, turkeys and rumor has it, maybe even a bigfoot. I hope you come enjoy friends, family and nature to make this an incredible experience.MountainView Rock Island campground is in the mountains of Tennessee with hiking trails and a beautiful view of the mountains located on 16+ acres of a quiet country mountain.

A new addition is a 24x24 foot deck in the woods for a more primitive private camping off the ground. (ask the hostess for details).    Every primitive site can bring their own shower bags along with portable toilets. We have two sites to choose from with one having a beautiful view of the valley and the other has a 24x24 ft deck in a more private wooded area. Gravel road entry. We have wildlife such as rattle snakes,, copperhead, bobcats, coyotes, deer, owls, turkeys and rumor has it, maybe even a bigfoot.  I hope you come enjoy friends, family and nature to make this an incredible experience. (Please bring bug spray as this is country life and we have little critters)We also are a laid back campground slowly improving for future other campsites with privacy. If you need to come early and we don’t have campers the night before it’s ok to do so

Lovely property and amazing view. We took our 26ft trailer that had plenty of space. The dogs loved all the wildlife smells and enjoyed chasing the ball in the open space. We enjoyed the fire pit and full hookups. Great host too.

Beautiful and Convenient!
This was a beautiful campground/views! I would definitely stay here again. Is secluded and just off of a very quiet rode so there is no city/car noise at all but east to get to. It had a lot more amenities than most remote campgrounds I’ve been to, several tables and Adirondack chairs ect. So it made it easy to set up as well :) Just fyi the zip code (1302) is marked on a mailbox next to the drive, so you don’t have to guess where the correct area is.

Camping on Melissa's property was great. We had the whole place to ourselves and the view was beautiful. Melissa was a clear communicator and Id gladly recommend this place to others.

We went tent camping as well as camping in the back of a truck. There was plenty of space and a beautiful view. The water and electricity worked perfectly and we loved how quiet it was. It was easy to find and we will stay again.

This is such a beautiful camp site. I love that it wasn’t a big camp ground and we were the only ones there. Amenities as described. View was breathtaking! We will absolutely be using this site again when we camp in this area.
