Our (very short, one-night stay) at Hatcher Holler was great! It was supposed to rain the night we arrived, and Matthew set up a tarp for us over the picnic table and cooler on the campsite. Upon arriving, we were struck by the beauty of their land, the animals, and the care taken to make our stay comfortable. We were even brought coffee in the morning! I would absolutely recommend this site. Thank you Matthew and Family!

A sweet, well maintained "holler" in the very large front yard of Matthew and his families home. The goats and pony were adorable and my dog and I enjoyed a short stroll down their sleepy street. Very nice camping spot right off interstate 40, perfect location for me.

Cozy spot amongst a quiet Knoxville suburban area. The spot was shady, fire ring ready, and a picnic table. There were some amazing fireflies out for our stay, and the rooster kept it down in the morning. Good time!

Solitude and trains

We enjoyed the solitude of the place. We had the yard to ourselves. The host was so super friendly! Our kids played on the tree swing and other play equipment. We saw the miniature pony, goats, and chickens.
Trains! The site is located maybe 50 yards from a train track. It is so close to ground shakes as the train passes and there is a private drive so the horn blows every time it crosses. There was a train at 11 PM, 11:45 PM, 2:30 AM and 6 AM. The last of which woke the kids up and they were up for the morning. So aside from the trains we had an exceptional time.
