Little Oak Campground sits on a peninsula along the eastern shore of beautiful South Holston Lake. The campground is in a designated “Watchable Wildlife Area,” and there are two interpretive trails nearby, so you can get your learn on. The lake is great for both motorized and non-motorized boats—there is a concrete boat ramp nearby. Paddle your canoe around the many islands while enjoying scenic views of the surrounding mountains.

Such a lovely spot! It is quite the trip from when you first enter Cherokee, but man is it worth it! My camp spot was right on South Holston Lake which allowed us to take a nice hike along the waters edge. We made friends with campers at the next spot over, shared some grub and good times. Though in the "Amenities" section it says there are certain things unavailable, our spot had quite a few of those things such as: a picnic table, fire ring, restroom (no shower) as well as bear proof trash/recycling receptacles. I highly recommend this site. The only thing I would have changed would have been to reserve a site further away from RV spots, the generators are a little much when you're trying to enjoy the peace and quite of nature!

Peaceful hike on the lake shore.Tent with a view! Camp spot just above the lake.Beautiful South Holston Lake.
