Camping in the forest means leaving your cares behind with the sound of bird’s chattering in the trees; life in the urban jungle seems a million miles away. Forests are the home to a variety of wildlife so there’s an adventure waiting to unfold when you pack up the RV and head for Little Oak Campground.
The lakeside setting is gorgeous with green grass, right down to the water’s edge, ideal for a family picnic or to catch up on some reading. Mountain views are spectacular with kayaking, tubing, and swimming some of the fun activities to enjoy on South Holston Lake.
The camp features modern amenities including hot showers, flush toilets, and drinking water. There are picnic tables and fire-rings but no electric, water, or sewer hook-ups for RVs. When visiting the Cherokee National Forest with your dog, the rules state they must be on a leash no more than six feet and they are allowed on nearby trails and the campground. It’s also requested you remove your dog's waste and keep them safe as this is bear country and they are always on the lookout for food left out by campers. Be sure to store all eatables in a designated bear container and keep your vehicles locked
Little Oak Campgrounds is a pretty, water-side setting with established trees for shade and a total of 72 large and level sites. Ground cover is grass and gravel for tents, trailers and RV’s. There is a boat ramp on the lake and friendly hosts on-site. The campground has gates that are locked from 10 at night to 7 am in the morning for camper safety.
For those of you who have come to explore the area, try hiking the Little Oak trail. It's just under two miles in length with memorable views of Holston lake. You can take your pet-pooch as long as they are on a leash.
A twenty-mile drive from the camp finds you in the city of Bristol where you can take the tour through the ancient Bristol Caverns used by Indians to travel unnoticed in early settler days.
