Mar 2018 - $10.00
We stayed for 2 months. We had cable wifi which was great. We had no problems with water, sewer or electric. Well, we did have a power outage but it was due to weather. The owner was prompt when it came time to pay the rent. A month was $350. Currently, they are adding a camp store with basic groceries, fishing bait and a snack bar. - campground survey

RV Park sites were very level. Clean RV Park. The owners are very nice and very helpful. Laundry faculty was very clean.
Very peaceful and close to I-40 and I-75.
Nice picnic shelter with grills.
No shower house but the owners said they were renovating the building on the property and would have one soon.
We really liked our site, had lots of shade and a nice rock fire pit.
There was a laundry facility there and was very clean and kept up. - PJ_1962

Located in the Chilhowee Recreation Area, Chilhowee Campground offers electric hookups, RV sites, tent only sites and multiple bathhouses. The campground is open from early April to late October, with an overflow area and day use area open year-round. 7-acre McKamy Lake offers a swim area with a sand beach and fishing from the bank. Boats are allowed, but gasoline motors are not. Also, within the recreation area are approximately 25 miles of hiking and biking trails and a scenic waterfall. On the drive up to the campground, stop at one of the many observation overlooks to see beautiful mountain settings. Wildlife is abundant in this area, so have your camera ready and tread lightly. Be aware, the drive up from US-64 is steep and while beautiful, is tough. It is 7 miles from the route to the campground. We were only overnight, so this was a bit inconvenient. Campground is beautiful, lots of woods and nature, including bear. Be wary with pets and having food outside. There are NO water hookups at the sites, though pipes are around and you could fill up your tank. Gave it an 8 because of tough drive to get there, poor directions into campground itself, and lack of other amenities. However, if you wanted to get away and enjoy nature, this would be an excellent spot to spend a few days or a week and swim, hike, and relax. - Too-wow

Very nice wooded campground. Better sites are unfortunately reserved for seasonal campers, otherwise they would be rated higher. Camped in a 33' Motorhome, and length was pretty tight - sites ideal for smaller campers. Managers seemed very nice. - Knox Camper

Stayed in a popup. Beautiful campground on Tellico reservoir. Easy access, and our site was PERFECTLY level - no adjustments necessary. All the other sites looked level as well. All sites appear to be nicely shaded. WARNING: If you google this campground, most web sites spell the name "Notchey" (with an "e"), however the "official" site spells it WITHOUT the "e". - bentrider

Clean, level, concrete pads. Lots of room in between sites. Hookups well placed. Beautiful water view. Live band the Saturday night we stayed. Loved the outdoor swings at certain sites. Nice place to fish. Only wish they offered jet ski or boat rentals! Roads are tight getting in-but doable! - n2camping

Friendly, helpful staff. Good sized, level concrete sites with good amenities including good WiFi and cable. If you have a boat it is even better. - padre44

I am going to try and rate this campground fairly. Getting there is a little challenging. First you have a really steep hill to pull after you turn in off hwy 30. After that the road is very narrow but as long as you drive slow you can make it. This campground has good cable and wi-fi. The concrete pads are level and wide. We had no trouble with four slides and awning. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. The store is well stocked. I think most people come to this place to fish. I know while we were there I caught a nice mess of crappie for dinner one night. We will go back. - chub

Nice, out of the way, intimate park. Most of the sites can handle 25-30foot rigs, and a few would handle 45 foot Kong's with pulls vehicles. Most were level. Only 3 spaces were near the road, so road noise was minimal. - Don Self

Small, intimate campground, conveniently located near many activities on the Ocoee and Hiwassee Rivers. No water at the sites, but plently of spigots around the campground; fill your fresh water tank before setting up. About half the sites can reach a water spigot with a 100' hose. This CG is in a valley not far off of Hwy 64. Beautiful old growth trees and a creek running behind some of the sites (see map). This is a "rustic" CG for those who love the woods. Sites are generously spaced. Take firewood with you - the ground around the CG is pretty well picked over. Sites are generally level and spacious, although the CG road is a little narrow. Some sites require a little more proficiency in backing in because of this. One bath house for the CG. It was clean, however, maintenance was a little behind. The day we left was the third day without toilet paper in either the men's or women's side. I would have rated it higher if not for this. The dump station is on a slope which prevents complete draining of tanks. There is no over-the air TV reception; satellite is spotty because of a thick canopy of trees. All-in-all, a very nice CG, I will definitely return. - Bama Camper

We stayed here for a week & were the only campers except for weekend. We loved the quiet! Staff is very kind! Only water & electric hookup but dump station easily accessible. There is a bar in the campground with live outdoor music when weather is good but they were very respectful & shut down before midnight. No complaints! Would definitely recommend & stay here again. - User3782

We stayed here to go rafting, but otherwise could not recommend. All RV sites are exposed to road noise, the property was badly maintained, with very unlevel sites, potholed gravel roads, muddy parking, grass up to our knees, lots of ticks, and a surly property manager. - procamper

This park is geared toward river activities. They have many tent sites and 9 or 10 RV sites. I was allowed to reserve a site but selection is first come first serve. Most RV sites are shaded. There was a band that performed on Friday night. Quiet hours start at 12 midnight. The website and rules state that all dogs must be on a leash. This is the only rule that was not followed. We were frequently visited by doggies wandering around the campground. Our site was very roomy. We had plenty of space for chairs and friends and dog runs. RV sites have electric and water and a fire ring. - GeorgiaGirl

This "RV"park seems like it was an after thought. The park is located behind a motel owned by the motel. It was one of the worst RV park I have stayed in and we have been RVing for 9 years. They have about 15 sites and about 11 or 12 long term residents. Most of them look like junk. My husband said the men's room was so dirty he wouldn't even use it. We will not stay here again. - Micki

We just needed an overnight stay so opted for lower priced park. It's just awful. Sites not level and the long termers look like trash. - grayhouse
Oct 2017 - $38.00
Stayed here for 10 days in October. Very nicely maintained park, but a bit expensive for what you get. They have longest list of rules I have ever seen. They actually lock the gate at 10pm. No alcoholic beverages visible at any time. All of the various parking restrictions did not seem to be consistently enforced, however. This is a place where campers bring all of their toys. - NKA

We stayed here in Toqua RV park for two nights on our way south. We had a very spacious site with all the room we could use. The RV Park was full on the weekend as we arrived on Saturday night with families enjoying the lake and their boats. There were lots of rules but that's a good thing because there was no junk lying around and it was very clean. Wi-Fi was average speed and no cable TV availability. - Blowfishqueen

The Tellico Lake Campgrounds bill themselves as a "resort". That might be a stretch, but it does allow them to charge more. Yes, there is a gate with a pass card to get in and yes, gates are locked at night. We had good WiFi and over the air TV got all major networks. Spaces are large, level, and easy to maneuver in. Roads are paved and provide nice venue for bike or hike around the campground area. Biggest gripe was of the 76 spaces, only about 25% were for transients; all others are "resort" rented for season (March to November). That makes it hard to get a site for the casual visitor. But, it keeps them in business. Worth the stay if you can get booked in. - Too-wow
