“Perfect wooded campground”

Reviewed Nov 11, 2018

Overall Rating

First of all, this area is BEAUTIFUL. We could not have asked for a better campground in that sense. The entire campground is wooded with level gravel sites, around 5 of the sites are next to a medium-sized stream. Ocoee Lake is just a bit down the road, which is also gorgeous, especially in the fall. There were also several hikes to do in the area, one of which led to a really neat waterfall called Benton Falls.

We were easily able to find a spot on a weekday in late October, but it did fill up over the weekend. Everyone we encountered was very nice. The bathrooms are clean as well as the shower, including hot water. There was no soap in the bathrooms, which was a little frustrating. Close enough to Cleveland for a Walmart and places to get wifi. The reception was spotty and had little to no service in our camper throughout our stay, so we drove to town a lot to work.

A regular spot with electric is $20, unless you have a National Parks/America the Beautiful pass, then it's $15. We would definitely stay here again!

“Peaceful ”

Reviewed May 20, 2018

Overall Rating

Stayed here in the Cherokee National Forest for 4 nights. Our site was right on a mountain stream. All electric and fleece sites. Hosts were great. Sites vary in size and ours was a pull through. Flush toilets and shower with hot water. Minimal traffic in the area and dogs enjoyed swimming. There is tent camping just across the road.
Not much cell coverage
