Cherokee National Forest

This small campground is located in Cherokee National Forest just northeast of Benton TN. Site number one is usually spoken for but there are 7 others to choose from.

There is about a mile between most sites. Traffic was minimal. I saw about 6 cars in the 2 days I was there. Also there is a modern campground a couple miles away where I was able to shower and replenish my water supply. Some sites are more secluced than others, some have pullthrus others don’t.

The site I stayed at (two) was against a river and a creek. Directions: Take US 441 north from Benton TN for about 8 miles then turn right on Spring Creek Rd. It runs along the Hiwassee River to the right. At about 1.75 miles the road sharply curves to the left into Gee Creek Rd 2.

There will be another left curve just before site one. The camping is unmarked other than site numbers.
