Campsites are designated as single unit sites (1 RV or 1 tent). All sites are back-in only. An adult 18 years or older must occupy the site of no more than 8 people. Each site may have up to 2 vehicles if the gravel area will accommodate all wheels on the gravel area. Please do not park on an empty campsite, on any grassy areas, or along the roadside.
Online reservations require a 2-night minimum stay.
Please respect the privacy of fellow campers and do not walk through occupied campsites. Please be considerate of your neighbor. No loud music or excessive noise is allowed at any time.
Bicycles without lights are not permitted after dark.
If you have a visitor, please have them stop at the store to register and purchase an extra vehicle pass. During a busy weekend, extra vehicle passes may be limited. Please park extra vehicles in an overflow parking lot.
Boat trailers (or boat & trailer) are to be parked in the parking area across from the boat launch. Boats can also be placed in a boat slip for $8.00 a day.
No docking of boats or any watercraft vessel along campground shoreline. No anchoring off shore or along beach swim area safety barrier.
Please keep pets on a leash and pick up after them. Keep them from barking and attend to them at all times. Due to insurance regulations, aggressive breed dogs are not allowed in the park. Pets are not allowed in the general store, on the beach, beach picnic area, or in restrooms.
Campers who are disruptive, intoxicated, or behaving in an obscene or profane manner will be reported to the TVA Police, asked to vacate the premises without reimbursement, and will be subject to a ban from a facility operated by Recreation Resource Management (RRM) in a partnership agreement with the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA).
