Swafford's Hollow

· Pikeville, Bledsoe, Tennessee
739 acres hosted by Andrew S.
One of the first parcels in Bledsoe County, TN, Swafford's Hollow resembles almost 740 acres of untouched wilderness. Although the lakes aren't natural, the environmental gain and beauty is amazing. Swafford's Hollow was purchased in November of 2020 by two of the Swafford brothers, with a vision of restoring the property to a pre-colonial environment, allowing wildlife and the ecosystem to thrive. Swafford's hollow is nearly completely forested, has three man-made lakes, two natural streams, a natural pond, many natural wetland areas, and over 27 miles of trails. It is our vision to develop an oak savanna, and spot clear cuts to allow graze land and cover with proper upkeep to develop habitat for many native species that are scarce from loss of savannas.

We had a great weekend camping here! Everything was perfect for us. We loved sitting by the pond and our dog loved roaming off leash. It felt very safe and secluded and we definitely plan to come back!

Great Group Camping Spot
A great place that felt secluded but not too secluded. There is a lot of room to roam and explore and the campsite on the pond is awesome with big spools and wooden benches that are great for prepping meals and storing things above the ground. You feel like you are in a forest even though you are close to a highway. The only thing we didn’t like was there were alot of dogs barking in the distance at night.

It was an amazing experience. The lakes were gorgeous. I ordered wood ahead of time and it was dry and ready when we arrived. I wouldn’t change a thing!

Will be back!
Plenty of space for us to hang hammocks and place tents. Beautifully laid out next to water that you can paddle a boat around on.

loved being able to camp here! the layout of everything is gorgeous, spacious, and so convenient. there were two of us plus a dog, but plenty more people can definitely fit. directions were clear, it was super easy to find and get to the site. felt super secluded but not entirely cut off from civilization to where it should worry anyone in case anything we’re to arise. will definitely be coming back!!
