A native plant nursery and conservation site located along Bear Branch in Morgan County, TN. These campsites provide a wild, deep woods experience while being just a few miles from all that the Obed Wild and Scenic River area has to offer. There are 2 private ridge-top sites and 1 creekside campsite nestled in the hollow of Bear Branch. These campsites are primitive, allowing for intimate connection to nature. All campsites are a short, steep hike in, with basic accommodations waiting for you that facilitate ease of use.

Private Hike In Tent Site- Hawk
Great stay. With fallen leaves, host made sure path and area was cleared and easy to find. That was very appreciated.

Great site!
Great secluded camping site! Loved the area. The instructions on getting to the campsite were a little unclear - The road is actually labeled as Cherokee Trail not Cherokee Hill Road, but once we figured that out, it was simple. There were not any carts by the parking area to help unload things as stated in the description, so unloading was a bit of extra work. If I were booking again, I would plan on not counting on the carts being there and pack even more lightly than we already had. We loved being stocked up on firewood and the tea in the tea kits was absolutely delish! If anyone could tell us what type of tea that was, that’d be great! Thanks again for hosting!

I have stayed at obed forest gardens multiple times And it's always such a relaxing retreat! I love the proximity to nemo and downtown Warburg. It is a great place to unwind and not too far away.

Owl campsite is borderline glamping! The level tent platform is big enough for your largest tent. The fire pit is located across a picturesque wooden foot bridge and the wood is included! The hike in is medium to difficult at times but the campsite is totally worth it. I would definitely stay at the owl site again!

Wonderful stay, highly recommend
We had a wonderful stay!! This was the perfect combination of remote camping with some very thoughtful amenities -- the platform, the kitchen setup, and the campfire / wood made such a difference in making our time enjoyable. The woods are beautiful and communication was easy! We even drove in at night and were able to find everything without a problem. Thank you, Obed Forest Gardens!

This campsite was great! The hosts had everything prepared and the area was so inviting. This place is a hidden treasure! I am looking forward to booking the same site again! The hosts were very helpful with any questions I had. Great time.

Private Hike In Tent Site- Hawk
Wild and Scenic!
From the time of booking Obed Forest Gardens was great at communicating. They helped set expectations by sending a super helpful pdf with directions and details about the campsite. The gravel road in is pretty bumpy at times but is not to bad if you take it slow. When arriving there is a wheel barrow for you to use for your gear which is nice to have since the hub is a bit of a walk from the parking area. I was concerned about the walking directions to the site but they have really clear hand made direction signs so I didnt have any issues. The HUB community area is awesome! It has a fire pit a picnic table and a granite prep table with a sink! It is a pretty challenging hike up to the ridge top campsite but it levels out on top. The seclusion and amenities make it worth the hike! It had a prep table a stove and even its own composting toilet. I would definitely recommend Obed Forest Gardens Hawk site to anyone looking for an adventure but being close to breweries and outdoor activities!

Very charming space for those in the backpacking mindset. From the parking area the curated space has whimsical trails to the shared gathering space, and from there through the hills to the individual sites. As in backpacking, be sure to bring just what you need and wear shoes/sandals you're comfortable with on a trail. Intentional and thoughtful details are evident throughout the whole space.
