The Hiwassee State Scenic Rivers’ “Gee Creek” campground is a haven and a home-away-from-home to many river users. Campsites are more tent-friendly than most. We have a large open field that serves as overflow to the 47 campsites. Some of the campsites are close enough to the river to be lulled to sleep each night by the sound of rushing water. An easy walk will lead you along the rivers edge for fishing, nature walks or a brisk dip in the cold waters.

Gee Creek primitive campground has 47 sites, each with a table, fire ring and a grill. Public water and a bathhouse containing sinks, commodes, and hot showers are located near the center of the campground. There is a fee for their use and the stay limit is two weeks.

Please keep in mind we are a primitive campground. We do not have hook-ups and cannot accommodate electrical needs. Due to the high number of complaints regarding generators in the primitive campground and in an effort to accommodate all users, we ask that you please limit the use of generators to – only as needed for a short period of time.

Tent camping is permitted along most of the John Muir Trail above the Appalachia Powerhouse. (THIS IS NOT A STATE SCENIC TRAIL, However, IT DOES PARALLEL THE STATE SCENIC RIVER.) It is a USDA FS managed area of the Cherokee National Forest. The U.S. Forest Service also operates a small campground called Quinn Springs on State Highway 30.
