“Lovely Location Near Trails”

Reviewed Aug 14, 2018

Overall Rating

This campground is outside of Franklin near the Appalachian Trail. That was the main appeal for us, as we did not bring a toad. We could access trails very easily from the campground. We have a 21 foot class C. There are several loops to choose from. Most are paved access, but we chose the last section which was a gravel road. It was no problem for our small rig, but I wouldn't take a class A or trailer on that loop as the turns are tight. Campsites are tidy with fire rings and lantern posts. No hook-ups at all in the campground. There are bathrooms with showers and a dump station (which is easy to miss as it is outside the campground). There is no coverage at all for AT&T. There are water spigots and water at the dump station. We did not need air conditioning there in August, which was pretty cool! (Pun intended!) In the first, bigger loop, there was not much for privacy, but we were pleased with the separation of sites in the gravel loop. I think you would also get more privacy in the loop near the creek. Quiet hours are 10-6. Lots of camp hosts on site. Trash cans are easily accessible. I gave this four stars only because the price seemed a bit high for no hook-ups on USFS land. Otherwise, it was lovely.

Close to the river and multiple hiking trails, this was a great location. I definitely appreciated that the bathrooms were kept so well cleaned, too.
