Big Hill Pond State Park


Rates: $13.75 — $50 Taxes and fees are not included. Rates subject to change. $5 reservation fee per site is non-refundable.

Big Hill Pond has 28 rustic campsites with tables and grills and a modern bathhouse with hot showers. The campground does not have any hook-ups and there is no dump station. Because the campground is small, there is no generator operation after 10:00 PM. Reservations may be made online. Sites 18 and 19 are adjacent to one of the scout camps and provide access to the scout camp.

Three primitive camping areas are available to scouting and other groups. One is located in the campground area and the others are down the gravel road past the park office. 

No backcountry camping is allowed. However, backpackers may hike in to four different camp shelters, three of which are very remote. Shelters are on a first come basis. When staying at shelters, if you do not check in with the office or park ranger, please leave a note on your dash as to which shelter you are staying and how long so the ranger will know why your vehicle is parked overnight. No pets are allowed in the shelters. Shelters have six bunks, however, four or more persons may sleep on the floor. Please call the park for additional information about the shelters.

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. To learn more about the pests that threaten Tennessee and what you can do to help prevent the introduction and spread of invasive pests, visit
