On the grounds, you can dip your toes in or kick back to the calming sounds of the infamous Nolichucky River that runs straight through the property. Perfect for kayaking, tubing, and fishing, guests have exclusive access to the River, with a few campsites that also connect to a private pond.

Campground guests also enjoy the Café located onsite that specializes in home baked goods such as banana streusel bread, brownie fudge pie, and cinnamon coffee cake. The camp store has an array of beverages, boutique shopping, and camp essentials such as wood and ice.

Open during office hours, the camper lounge offers yard and board games, a treadmill, book exchange, and WII console.

Located only 10 minutes from Historic Downtown Jonesborough, guests find themselves exploring history, shopping from local artisans, and basking in the Appalachian culture of the Storytelling Capital of the World and the Oldest Town in Tennessee.
