16 RV Parks near Benton, Tennessee
Aug 2016 - $45.00
Stayed 2 nights to fish the Hiawassee. The manager was really nice but the park needs a lot of work and a good cleanup. It is apparently just out of bankruptcy after 5 years. Also now known as Eagle Cove RV park now to clear up that confusion. Trash is my pet peeve with cigarette butts at the top of the list! Lots of those around, dead bugs in the bathrooms, broken picnic table, trash in the fire ring, dead landscaping, fields that needed mowing......etc. No cable and unlevel sites for $45 per night was just poor value. The park did get WiFi the day we arrived but you had to go up to the bathrooms to connect. They did not take credit cards as well. Lots of upgrades in the future plans according to Jim. Great potential with a beautiful location. ...... - Blowfishqueen

Before peak season, this park was a hidden gem. We were there in April, and the park had only two other rigs during the week, with a few more on weekends.
The park backs up to a large undulating feild, bordered by the Hiwassee River. Mountains are picturesque in the distance. There is a lot of green space.
Pull through sites were level on our end, (site 35), but a bit steep further along. All other sites appeared reasonably level. Utilities were fine. Wi-fi at the lodge was spectacular. Hosts were very friendly and accommodating.
We stayed an additional week, and will return next year if possible. - Sheryl E

NO WIFI, rock road had lots of potholes that showed a lack of R&M. Bathhouse looked nice and clean, but we didn't use it.
Beware of the turn off the highway into the CG; it's hard dropoff that can/will scrape the under-carriage. Likewise for entering hi-way from the CG. - Rick and Sandy

Great camp host. In the middle of Ocoee River and Lake with lots to do if your adventurous. - Curt Bowen

Nice, out of the way, intimate park. Most of the sites can handle 25-30foot rigs, and a few would handle 45 foot Kong's with pulls vehicles. Most were level. Only 3 spaces were near the road, so road noise was minimal. - Don Self

Small, intimate campground, conveniently located near many activities on the Ocoee and Hiwassee Rivers. No water at the sites, but plently of spigots around the campground; fill your fresh water tank before setting up. About half the sites can reach a water spigot with a 100' hose. This CG is in a valley not far off of Hwy 64. Beautiful old growth trees and a creek running behind some of the sites (see map). This is a "rustic" CG for those who love the woods. Sites are generously spaced. Take firewood with you - the ground around the CG is pretty well picked over. Sites are generally level and spacious, although the CG road is a little narrow. Some sites require a little more proficiency in backing in because of this. One bath house for the CG. It was clean, however, maintenance was a little behind. The day we left was the third day without toilet paper in either the men's or women's side. I would have rated it higher if not for this. The dump station is on a slope which prevents complete draining of tanks. There is no over-the air TV reception; satellite is spotty because of a thick canopy of trees. All-in-all, a very nice CG, I will definitely return. - Bama Camper

Located in a large bowl-shaped valley east of Chilhowee Mountain, and about seven miles north of US 64, east of the Ocoee Dam, in the Unaka Mountains. Deep second growth forest. Mostly dry camping, but a few sites in the E-Loop have electric service. The road up, especially in the first 3.5 miles, is steep and winding. Some 180 degree switchbacks. Confident drivers only, must know how to gear down for miles. Mostly smaller RV's, but 5ths were in the CG. Low branches at times. Campsites were typical of NF developed campgrounds: timber borders, fine gravel, mostly level (driveways on inclines), picnic table, lantern holders. Loops are hilly. Bear warnings (have had injuries in the past in the CG), but we saw none. Many miles of hiking trails, waterfalls, vistas. Lake trail was easy, scenic. Other trails more challenging. Fill tank with potable water around the loop at the dump station, or at numerous yard hydrants on the loops. Never met the CG hosts. OTA TV had 8 Chattanooga channels. Verizon service was 4 bar LTE in the CG. Traveled east on US 64 along the Ocoee River Gorge to Ducktown to the copper museum (interesting, but not interactive). Copperhill, McCaysville, and Blue Ridge, are pricey tourist towns. We would definitely return when in the area. - The Happy Traveler

Located in the Chilhowee Recreation Area, Chilhowee Campground offers electric hookups, RV sites, tent only sites and multiple bathhouses. The campground is open from early April to late October, with an overflow area and day use area open year-round. 7-acre McKamy Lake offers a swim area with a sand beach and fishing from the bank. Boats are allowed, but gasoline motors are not. Also, within the recreation area are approximately 25 miles of hiking and biking trails and a scenic waterfall. On the drive up to the campground, stop at one of the many observation overlooks to see beautiful mountain settings. Wildlife is abundant in this area, so have your camera ready and tread lightly. Be aware, the drive up from US-64 is steep and while beautiful, is tough. It is 7 miles from the route to the campground. We were only overnight, so this was a bit inconvenient. Campground is beautiful, lots of woods and nature, including bear. Be wary with pets and having food outside. There are NO water hookups at the sites, though pipes are around and you could fill up your tank. Gave it an 8 because of tough drive to get there, poor directions into campground itself, and lack of other amenities. However, if you wanted to get away and enjoy nature, this would be an excellent spot to spend a few days or a week and swim, hike, and relax. - Too-wow

Cash only, no credit cards. Poor interior roads, unlevel site, barely there cell service. Sitting on a bluff over the river so the view isn't much either. Junky trailers all over. Just another overpriced rundown campground. Nothing nearby that we saw. Good for an overnight if not overpriced. - User2063

Wi-Fi does not work. Very few pull through sites. Overpriced for its location and services. - Geno1986

The view is lovely, but we will not be returning. This campground is not family friendly. We were supposed to have a two night stay but after returning from our rafting trip we were told to leave without refund because our dog was barking from inside the camper. We asked around and most campers said the dog was not a problem. We had done all requested of us including providing shot records but had the distinct feeling we were not welcome from the time we arrived when the campground manager suggested we tranquilize our pet because she did not seem happy. We have taken her camping a lot and have never had a problem before. The campsite was small; so was the bath house. I think this is geared for local use not for travelers. - munrofamily

We stayed here for a week & were the only campers except for weekend. We loved the quiet! Staff is very kind! Only water & electric hookup but dump station easily accessible. There is a bar in the campground with live outdoor music when weather is good but they were very respectful & shut down before midnight. No complaints! Would definitely recommend & stay here again. - User3782

We stayed here to go rafting, but otherwise could not recommend. All RV sites are exposed to road noise, the property was badly maintained, with very unlevel sites, potholed gravel roads, muddy parking, grass up to our knees, lots of ticks, and a surly property manager. - procamper

This park is geared toward river activities. They have many tent sites and 9 or 10 RV sites. I was allowed to reserve a site but selection is first come first serve. Most RV sites are shaded. There was a band that performed on Friday night. Quiet hours start at 12 midnight. The website and rules state that all dogs must be on a leash. This is the only rule that was not followed. We were frequently visited by doggies wandering around the campground. Our site was very roomy. We had plenty of space for chairs and friends and dog runs. RV sites have electric and water and a fire ring. - GeorgiaGirl

Commonly called 'Gee Creek Campground', we love staying here. The campground is very nice & very affordable. The staff is great; especially, the rangers. They offer interpretive programs most evenings that are very interesting. The playground is awesome. The river is just yards away through the woods, offering a good place to wade, swim, & fish. We highly recommend this campground. - Jennings

One of the nicest KOA we have visited. Sites are nicely graveled and mostly level. Water pressure was good. Electricity steady. Road traffic behind our site slowed dramatically after 10 pm. Good spacing between sites. Pizza delivery to the office or pavilion by the pool. Giant boulders mark the ends of sites and roadways. Pool was squeaky clean and just he right temperature for a refreshing dip. Lovely pool area. Definitely put this one on our "return to " list! Only downfall was a HUGE bump when exiting the campground. Teeth-jarring for sure. - DebbieT in Alabama

This was an overnight stay. The road to the campground and the roads within the campground were curvy. The campground had some rocks for ornamentation that made it necessary to pay particular attention when driving through. Oddly, the rules said "no laundry allowed" because of their septic system but they had a laundry room. Not sure why an RV washer would be worse? Overall, the campground was quiet and peaceful in a wooded setting. We would stay again. - lce3

Very convenient stop off of I-75 north of Chattanooga. Well maintained grounds; clean facilities. Fair number of pull-through sites. Mix of full hook-up, E/W, and E-only sites. Cable TV, dog park, laundry room, Lp-fill station, pool, etc. much appreciated amenities. Definitely bring leveling blocks, as some of the spots are more challenging than others. Dump station is in an odd location in one of the camping loops that could be hard for a large rig to turn into. - aowcarol
