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. We camped at Chilhowee Recreation Area in a Motorhome.
