Our location is phenomenal we are an hour from Knoxville and Asheville and just about 1/4 mile off I-40. Right at the foothills of the Smoky Mountains and 35 minutes from Gatlinburg about 40 minutes to Pigeon Forge (Dollywood), also about 45 minutes to Sevierville and one of my favorite Tanger Outlets!! The beautiful Smoky Mountains the National Park is filled with hiking trails and horse stables and trails. Some of the best white water rafting is less then 5 miles up the road along with zip lining and a lil taste of moonshine here and there. This property is primitive with no electric and has a camping style bathhouse. IT’s recommended for outdoor lovers and people that are not to needy. Site 7, 1 and 9 are the only direct riverfront.

Extremely pleased
I’m very happy with the service, the hosts were extremely accommodating and amazingly nice. I would recommend anybody to go camping here. The campsites were nice and even had a fireplace the spot that we went to even had a stream that we could swim in.

Place was beautiful and clean. There is a river right next our campsite and an area where the current was calm and able to swim. Would recommend and comeback.
