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.

I absolutely loved Melissa's property! Such a stunning view and the pictures she posted must be older because they do not do this place justice. She was quick to respond to any questions I had and so very helpful. Thank you so much for allowing us to enjoy your property! We hope to book through you again soon.

Camping With A View!
What a great spot! It literally is like you are out in the middle of nowhere, but with all the conveniences. The new outhouse was a great feature. The view, I don't have words! It is just stunning, and even more so at night. I only have a 15-foot camper, so I managed, but there is a hairpin turn on Bone Cave Mountain Rd if you come in from Laurel Creek Rd. Look at the map and come in the opposite direction. Lots of hiking. The host was great! Can't say enough. I will be back!

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.
