Running Water Creek is a unique, fully off grid campground just 20 minutes to downtown Chattanooga. We have 80+ campsites spread out over 120 acres. Most of the roads are accessible in any small car, but some roads require 4x4 (they're marked with a sign). We have a bath house with toilets, showers, and sinks and even offer hot water! Our well and cabins are all solar powered as we are not on the electric grid. Some info about the property: -we DO NOT have water or power hookups -we have gravel roads with a 5 MPH speed limit on the property (if you drive too fast the roads will seem rough) -we are right next to a highway and train tracks so there will be some noise (some days are better than others and we have no way of predicting how many trains will/will not go by) -none of our campsites have picnic tables (please plan accordingly) -most campsites have fire rings built, but if you choose a site without one you need to build your own

The experience was ok. The most of the sites were clean and well maintained others were a little rough. It was also a little hard to tell where the sites were as he was a little overgrown. But overall we felt safe and the we had a wonderful experience.

We enjoyed camping here and the cool part it’s secluded and you can definitely appreciate your surroundings! We stayed here for 2 nights, it had extremely clean restrooms, cute little running creek and everything was a reasonable distance from Chattanooga! We will be staying again!

Too expensive for what it is
The campsites are not easy to find in the dark and we're not very well kept. Once I finally found an open campsite it was completely overgrown and on an incline.

Mountainside Tiny A-Frame
Great Hideout
Cool spot just minutes from downtown Chattanooga. A-frame was perfect for me. Bed was very comfortable! Electricity worked great, bathhouse was clean, firewood available, and privacy was great!
