Rock Creek National Forest campground is located in Cherokee National Forest in Northeast TN. Roads inside the campground while paved are fairly narrow. We had no trouble navigating the roads with our truck and 31' toy hauler trailer. Sites are gravel and many are large and deep. The larger sites can easily hold the largest RVs. The old growth trees and thick understory provide privacy for the sites. One loop, C has 50 amp electrical service while loops A and B have 30 amp service. This is a beautiful area and it is usually 10 degrees cooler than surrounding areas. Fees are $20 or $15 with a golden age pass. If you tent camp, there are 5 walk in tent sites with pea gravel pads at the top of loop C. The swimming area is unique. It is a large rounded cement pond with creek water glowing through it. Numerous hiking trails nearby. No reservations here and it is a very popular park. I recommend you arrive mid week to improve your chances to get a site. We camped at Rock Creek Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Well-shaded and very private sites in this lovely, quiet campground. Verizon signal very weak but usable with antenna. Beautiful trails and rhododendrons everywhere. It's probably spectacular in the spring! Ended up staying six days. We camped at Rock Creek Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Beautiful NFS campground. Roads are paved, sites are gravel, level, huge, and well-spaced for privacy. Campground is shady and cool, nice for family camping. Restrooms/showers could be cleaner. Rate reflects senior discount. We would stay here again. We camped at Rock Creek Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

This park was initially built by the Civil Conservation Corp. It is a National Forest Service park, located in the Cherokee National Forest. There are 33 RV sites, all very large, level, and shaded. Sites are gravel and have electric hookups only. All sites are first come, first serve, no reservations. A mountain stream runs beside the campground. A small concrete lined pond is fed by the stream and available for swimming. Hiking trails lead to waterfalls upstream. Hose bibs are provided at a few locations in the campground to fill water tanks. A dump station is provided. Hot showers and flush toilets are available. For those who can enjoy a quiet wooded setting with only limited amenities, Rock Creek is a very pleasant experience. We camped at Rock Creek Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.
