Big Rig Friendly?

If you have a big rig, call to inquire about your rig size. We were here in our camper van, and there were several motor coaches already at the park, but I would not want to try to drive our 42’ motor coach on the roads you have to take to get into the park.


Off of Highway 19 East, in Elizabethton. The roads you will have to drive to get to the campground are windy and narrow.


There is no Wi-Fi, no cell service, and no cable TV. So this campground is quiet, quiet, quiet. It’s also in a beautiful setting. So if beauty and quiet are your thing, this may be a good campground for you. If you fish, which we don’t, you’d also really enjoy it here. Several of our fellow campers brought their paddle boards and kayaks, and I wish we had brought ours, because the water is beautiful here!
