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

Nice remote space. It was quite as far as distance to other campers but there is a train track very close with trains running all through the night. Wish the individual sites would have been marked better.

confusing to navigate
It wasn't quite what I expected...It's a nice area...but it was difficult to make out what where the campsites were supposed to be. I only saw two areas with a fire pit and one with a picnic table, which I took to be camp sights, so I just set up next to one. So clearer markings on what are supposed to be camp sights would be nice. (usually expect to see a picnic table, fire pit, and flat area to set up tent). As a positive note There's a nice bathroom facility!

Thomas was a wonderful host and his camp was/is beautiful. The showers are hot and the nature walks are gorgeous! Thank you for the great stay, Thomas! PS. We were able to easily get a converted van pulling a trailer into site one, for reference.

Road was narrow and a little rough for pulling a camper......but the bathroom and bath house was clean and the park was quite.
