Thanks for considering us for your camping escape to
far Western North Carolina!
Turkey Creek, a small babbling brook, meanders through our peaceful, beautiful little cove on its way to the confluence of the Nantahala and Little Tennessee Rivers which form Fontana Lake. You can enjoy a short hike through a southern Appalachian hardwood forest to see that view. A wide variety of vegetation ensures a continual display of color throughout the year. There are myriad of songbirds, bugs and frogs to serenade you throughout the camping season. Fireflies are in abundance mid-Spring on into Summer.
There are many adventures awaiting you: whitewater rafting on the Nantahala River and Tuckasegee River; mountain biking at Tsali and Cherokee; fishing and hiking trails in the Nanthalal National Forest, Deep Creek and Great Smoky Mountains Park; scenic drives along the Cherohala Skyway and surrounding area, Fontana Lake for boating and paddle boarding, and charming Bryson City for dining and shopping just for starters.
Come escape and explore our great outdoors!
At the office you'll find firewood and ice for sale.
A sanitary dumping station is adjacent to the office for travel trailers and recreational vehicles.
Below the office is the beautiful, tiled bathhouse with hot showers and a small, coin-op laundry room that also has double sinks for washing dishes.
TCC's park like setting has the following: most campsites have 20 amp electrical service and water, all sites have picnic tables and fireplaces. most of the creek sites have 10' x 12' raised tent pads and most sites are shaded at least part of the day.
There are 9 sites with water and 30 amp service but no sewer
hook-ups for up to 30ft RVs and travel trailers/including tongue and only up to 26 ft for fifth wheels. The paved driveway to the campground is steep but very doable as long as you have proper horse-power and don't have front wheel drive.
Drivers must be experienced due to the tight turns within the campground's graveled roads, which includes a 45 ft u-turn span to exit the campground from the dumpstation.
Free, limited WIFI is available around the office/deck/bathhouse complex. WIFI is limited so we ask you to read our policy and comply.
