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

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

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

Seasonals have taken over. 3 or 4 very poor slots available. Gravel spots are overgrown, the pedestals falling over. cable connections don't work cable laying on the grounds. A lawnmower has not seen this area in quite some time. Electrical wavered a bit as the night went on. Sites are very short. The 'owners' no longer staff the office. Someone drops in late in the day. Pool is closed (even in season). I am sorry to say this place is darn near gone. NO 50amp or sewer in overnighter area. - Mushroom

We have stayed here for a month every year for the past 4 years but this year will probably be our last. The campground is for sale and maintenance is being ignored. Most of the pull-through sites have power and cable issues and are very tightly packed. The grass was about 6 inches tall when we arrived and no one cut any of the sites for the whole month we were there. Fire ants are everywhere. The host are not friendly but this is nothing new for this park. This park is fine for an overnight visit and easy to get around in, although a little hard to find behind Krystal's. - dandg

This property is up for sale. The facilities are getting run down and shabby looking. Hookups are needing updating and repair in some instances but nothing much is being done. The pull-through sites are barely long enough for a 40' coach and small toad and are crammed together with your neighbor's sewer hose next to your picnic table. Trees between sites make slide deployment iffy. Other than a quick overnight, don't bother. - lllkrob

This is advertised as a motorcycle-friendly business. There are open fields for tents and small campers, cabins, and sites for larger RVs. Electric service is limited to a few of the sites. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Cabins have heat and A/C and are furnished with bed linen & pillows. - Frank Fish

After storing the camper for five months nearby, we spent a "shakedown" week here. Basic RV Park, friendly folks, level, pull-thru gravel site with cement patio. Didn't use bath house but it's available. Two washers/dryers on honor system, $4 total per load. No cable but OTA channels from Knoxville and/or Chattanooga, though hit and miss. Tractor Supply, Ace/Co-Op, Wal-Mart, Lowes all nearby. Maybe a mile off I-75... convenient but you don't hear it. I'd stay here again without hesitation. - Halfmast

I try to base my reviews on what means the most to me, and that is what I call sleepability. The campground is just off of a main two-lane highway so there was some road noise late in the evening, but it curtailed after dark and I had a good nights rest. All the utilities worked as they were designed and I must say that even though the Internet wasn't working in the office, we had an excellent signal in the campground. I wish more RV parks would take note and understand that this feature is very important to a lot of travelers and walking or driving to a "hot-spot" in the CG is not what we want to do. We didn't use the bath house so I can't comment on that aspect of this CG. The interior roads were a little narrow, but they didn't cause any issues for our 32' Class C. The office staff were friendly and I had a couple of conversations with our neighbors, who were all very cordial. The CG is not on my Top 10 list, but if passing through the area, I wouldn't hesitate staying here again. - Love To Travel 2

This was our second time we stayed here. Once in August 2017 and in March.The staff here was friendly and eager to help in anyway. Our site was large enough for our motorhome and her car. The hookups worked flawlessly and restrooms located at the far end were clean. Each site had a cement patio with a table and a few chairs. They even had a washer and dryer available for use on the honor system. Only downside the sites are gravel but level and we had a lot of rain so it got a bit muddy during our stay. We definitely will be staying here again. - maromeo58

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

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

Went there for a 3 night stay during the total eclipse. I was told that there wouldn't be any difference in rates due to the eclipse, but when we arrived, it was doubled. I didn't want to start my eclipse weekend with a fight, so I just paid. There are 22 sites. The staff was super friendly. Wi-Fi is a hit or miss. I wasn't sure if it was just the sheer number of eclipse people. Not much in amenities, just a clubhouse with a TV, darts, and I think a pool table. A couple of coin op washers and dryers were in between the restroom/showers. The ladies room had 3 toilets and 2 showers. There are RV'ers that rent monthly there, so some places look more lived in with fences and such. The terrain was of grass and gravel. Hilly as expected in TN. I watched motorhomes turning VERY slowly down the narrow, gravel road so as to avoid sliding. My site was pretty nice with morning sun and afternoon shade. Lots of trees in TN. Usual hookups, picnic table, and a tractor trailer wheel for our fire pit. Overall, nice location in the countryside, but the clubhouse, restrooms, and laundry room are clean, but old and tired. Everything is very rustic, but that what camping is! :) - Texas Flag

Narrow steep gravel lanes. Remember that if you're pulling a large towable. Mostly long term older rv's. Not an easy task to get out of. Dogs barking and our pad was so narrow our steps hung over just a couple of feet from a drop off. Then dealt with a muddy red mess on the other side. Ok for a quick overnight if you need hookups. - csbunz123

The staff was friendly and accommodating. The roads are a little steep, but were no problem to negotiate with a 36' coach. The gravel sites were a little eroded and not level. It took a lot of blocks to even get close to level on our site. The WI-FI worked good as did the cable TV. Some sites are too wooded for satellite service but some of the upper sites are clear. This is not the fanciest park, and the sites are small and a little close to each other. With the Passport America rate it is worth every penny. There are many things to do in the surrounding area and we would stay there again. - rgatijnet

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
