Shawnee State Park Campground offers some of the most picturesque views in the state of the Appalachian foothills. The campground is located on old hunting grounds of the Shawnee Indians and with the proper hunting license, you can relive history yourself. You can even rent a canoe and try your hand at casting a line. Whatever you end up eating for dinner, the camp fire rings are a great spot to enjoy “The Little Smokies” in all their glory. That was referring to the nickname of the rugged erosion-carved valleys and wooded hills of the area, but the synonymous mini hot dog reference works too.

We camped here 2 nights in July 2017 in our tent. We had 2 spots right along the creek, which was really nice during the dog days of summer. The boys loved playing in the creek, and the adults did, too!
Shady sites, but a little too close together for my liking and not the best level spots for tents. You could hear every conversation at the neighboring campsites. Restrooms were as you would expect, rustic but sufficient. Trails lead off right from campground, and proximity to lake and beach area is also a plus. Very popular spot with the locals.
