On the Buffalo is a 12 acre campground associated with Camp Wonder Wander creativity retreat center. This RV section is at the front of the property easily accessed by a well paved state road. Talented drivers could back-in but pull-in and back up in the large parking space is best option.You'll be surrounded mostly by trees here and about 500 feet from the camp main lodge. The area is cleared, flat with packed rock. As this campground starts up, there is currently no electric or other hookups at this particular spot. Take a walk through the pine path to the rest of the campground and our riverfront basin of the Buffalo River in Lewis County. You'll see natural habitat of mid-south Tennessee in the foothills of Appalachia. There are wild animals around most often deer. There is no hunting on this property.
