BURN BAN EFFECTIVE NOV 14 – DEC 15
Governor Haslam has issued a burn ban that prohibits campfires and burning of brush, vegetation, trash and building materials. In addition to the Governor’s ban on campfires, Tennessee State Parks are prohibiting the use of outdoor charcoal grills.

Rates: $20 Taxes and fees are not included. Rates subject to change. $5 reservation fee per site is non-refundable.
There are 51 campsites with water and electrical hookups, grills, picnic tables and hard-surface pads that can accommodate a unit up to 50 feet in length. A dump station is open year-round. One of the two restroom facilities includes showers, however that building is not open during the off-season, thus showers are not available at that time. Stay limit is two weeks.
Campsites are heavily wooded with separation between the sites. Camping is equally popular by both RV’s and tents/pop-ups. While the campground has a remote feel, it is actually within 10 minutes of a variety of restaurants. Also, a Manchester public pool is within one mile of the campground.
New Firewood Policy – Effective June 1, 2016 - DON’T MOVE FIREWOOD
In order to protect our forests and trees from invasive insects and diseases, Tennessee State Parks asks that ALL campfires be made with heat-treated wood or downed wood collected inside the park, near the campsite. Please refrain from bringing untreated wood into the park.
Certified heat-treated wood is available to purchase from concessioners in many of the campgrounds as well as from vendors in the communities around the park. Certified heat-treated firewood is clearly marked with a state or federal seal.
The Emerald Ash Borer and other invasive pests are a growing threat to the forests of Tennessee and the surrounding region.
