I love this campground! There are plenty of great sites, which are level and spacious. The campground is rustic and beautiful. The 3-mile long hiking trail around the nearby lake is alone worth the price of admission; it's awesome for a nature hike or easy mountain bike ride. The campground store is phenomenal and about as well stocked as one could wish for. There's really only two caveats about this campground. Otherwise it would rate a 10 for me. The first is that there's no water hookup directly at the sites. However, there are water sources scattered around the campground. This is but a small inconvenience. We had water directly across from our site-#85. Pull out, fill up, back in, no problem. This little inconvenience probably keeps the campground from being overcrowded and overpriced, so try to take the bad with the good. The second issue is also a minor one: that being that many of the sites are near the campground entry road, which can be noisy when loud trucks and motorcycles are coming and going. Loop A gets you further away from the noise. There is no wi-fi at the campground and we didn't have phone service either. We didn't have our dish satellite with us, but I expect that getting a signal would have been tricky. But hey, it's camping. The reprieve from technology was a blessing. Our vehicle is a 24 foot class B. - jerry6

Despite this being a hilly park our pad was perfectly level. The bat houses are modern, nicely spaced-out for short walks and the walkways to and from the facilities are concrete. The bath houses were spotless and freshly scented. The view from our front door was straight into a beautiful secluded forest. The sites are far enough apart to fit a site or two in between each one of them. I did not do my homework very well and had set up camp when I realized the sites do not have water hook-ups. But we got lucky. There are threaded water hydrants located throughout the park. We had one within reach of our 50 white hose, so did not have to hitch back up and go for water. If not for the lack of water at the pads, this park would be a 9 or 10. Kudos to USFS. NPS could learn from them. - Tidy Boy

sites large but campgrounds roads fairly narrow. Very clean, stayed during the week so the campground not crowded. Dump station had no running water so bring your own for clean up. Sites have power but no water but water spitots periodically along the campground roads. Sites all back in. - susy1313

Pleasant country setting. About 20 min's. to town on a long and winding road. If you want to donate to god, there are 4 religious stations picked up by the batwing, that are 24 hr. fundraisers. No cell phone service, AT&T or Verizon. Wi-Fi up by office only. Rate reflects PA discount. If you want a quiet, removed from electronics CG this is it. If you want TV bring a Sat. dish or listen to the radio and have a fire, as we did. We would stay here again. - phnz1

If you like quiet this place is it. We were here on the Memorial Day weekend, and they had a number of vacancies. Some words about the approach to reach the campground. If you follow the map from the website and if you take the short way in, the road becomes very very narrow for a full width bus (102"). Our 36' MH used every bit of our lane and some of the on coming lane going around the tight corners. If you take a wrong turn and go off on a side road you will probably have to back all the way back out. I used our GPS and input the intersections for Joe Brown Rd and Hanging Dog Rd, , Hanging Dog Rd and Beaver Dam Rd, and Beaver Dam Rd and Horton Rd. all in Murphy, NC, and got there just fine. If you're driving anything longer than 36' you may want to take the long way in because the road is wider and not as many tight turns. However, it has restricted single lane bridges, and you might call and find out what the load limits are. We paid $31.50 for a 50 amp full hook up site with tax. The roads and sites are gravel and a longer coach may have trouble getting level in the available 50 amp sites. You are about 15 miles from the town of Murphy so have your provisions. Propane and gasoline are available on site. Wi-Fi works OK. Verizion MiFi and cell phone work poorly. Showers are great. All in all a good park that's a bit out of the way; make sure you call before you drive all the way in. The 30 amp sites are along a very small creek with good shade. 50 amp sites do not have any shade yet. Give it about 15 yrs for the trees to grow up. - pumper9x9

A true hidden gem that you should not miss at this PA price! 12 miles of curvy, narrow (but extremely quiet) road takes you to the CG. CG roads well maintained and wide (no problem with maneuvering our 29' MH with Ford Ranger in tow). Camp sites range from full RV hook-ups (no pull throughs) to primitive tent sites. All sites have picnic tables and fire rings, and are adjacent to creek that encircles the CG. Sites are large and immaculate. Clean facilities and 8 private bathrooms! Huge grass areas and playgrounds for the kids as well as a run-through fountain for the hot days. A large pavilion and cabins are available. Cabins look very nice (we peeked through the windows). A workshop is available for rent (didn't check it out, but supposedly fully equipped) at $20/hour. Gasoline and propane are sold here. We will definitely be back! - Full-Time Roamers

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

We stayed here 5 nights since we have friends in the area. We enjoyed our stay. The roads and sites are packed gravel in good condition. It rained once and there were very few puddles. There are no shade trees, so I imagine that it will be pretty warm during the summer. Breezes off the lake might help. Most of the sites are rented annually, meaning that the pickings are somewhat slim for spaces. We did have a waterfront back-in site. No cable TV, but the dish worked well due to lack of trees. Wi-Fi was somewhat spotty and often would disappear. The entry gate closes (and I do mean close) at 10pm so if you are running late you have to park by the office and hike to your site. You can leave after 10, but can't enter. Overall this is a good campground for either a stay or an overnighter. We will be back. - Scott Charlton

Commonly called 'Gee Creek Campground', we love staying here. The campground is very nice & very affordable. The staff is great; especially, the rangers. They offer interpretive programs most evenings that are very interesting. The playground is awesome. The river is just yards away through the woods, offering a good place to wade, swim, & fish. We highly recommend this campground. - Jennings

Stayed 2 nights to fish the Hiawassee. The manager was really nice but the park needs a lot of work and a good cleanup. It is apparently just out of bankruptcy after 5 years. Also now known as Eagle Cove RV park now to clear up that confusion. Trash is my pet peeve with cigarette butts at the top of the list! Lots of those around, dead bugs in the bathrooms, broken picnic table, trash in the fire ring, dead landscaping, fields that needed mowing......etc. No cable and unlevel sites for $45 per night was just poor value. The park did get WiFi the day we arrived but you had to go up to the bathrooms to connect. They did not take credit cards as well. Lots of upgrades in the future plans according to Jim. Great potential with a beautiful location. ...... - Blowfishqueen

Before peak season, this park was a hidden gem. We were there in April, and the park had only two other rigs during the week, with a few more on weekends.
The park backs up to a large undulating feild, bordered by the Hiwassee River. Mountains are picturesque in the distance. There is a lot of green space.
Pull through sites were level on our end, (site 35), but a bit steep further along. All other sites appeared reasonably level. Utilities were fine. Wi-fi at the lodge was spectacular. Hosts were very friendly and accommodating.
We stayed an additional week, and will return next year if possible. - Sheryl E

NO WIFI, rock road had lots of potholes that showed a lack of R&M. Bathhouse looked nice and clean, but we didn't use it.
Beware of the turn off the highway into the CG; it's hard dropoff that can/will scrape the under-carriage. Likewise for entering hi-way from the CG. - Rick and Sandy

We spent a week there in our 36 ft. motor-home backed up against a nice stream. We would clearly go back there should we want to stay overnight when traveling through that area or if we were we to again spend time in that general location. No complaints. - Sigurd Hoyer

Nice little campground outside of Murphy. Our pull through site was rather small, close to next site. Bathrooms were dated but clean. Pool was nice. Not much of a camp store but walmart is about a mile away. We will stay here again when in the area. - Jtroop

THE GOOD: level sites, shady, quiet, close to town, pool, pet park, fishing and other activies nearby.
THE BAD: overflowing dumpster, flies, low power output when park is full, sewer problems, skid row, and the worst fresh water I have ever seen...it will discolor clothing and color treated hair, so beware!
THE UGLY:Caution, the park owner is like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. He might greet, ignore or evict you depending on his mood.
Due to more bad and ugly than good we relocated a few miles away and are happy to have done so! - Cat Woods

$10 with Senior Pass, but a $9 fee to book online. Unusual for a National Forest, this campground has electrical. Only six RV sites, all back-in, and another 15 tent sites. RV sites were long enough for larger rigs. Access is on paved roads which pass through a private HOA. Last 100 yards or so are unpaved, and roads within campground are also unpaved. Showers were warm, but on a timer which requires you to push a button every 10-30 seconds. Heat lamp in showers, which was very welcome in the cold weather. - OlderGoat

This was our fifth stay at Persimmon Creek.
The owners are friendly and welcoming hosts. The park is clean and well kept, the bath house was immaculately clean, and the setting is perfect. WiFi is a bit iffy at west side where we were camped but workable.
A real pleasure! - Lee Jarvis

Stayed the first week of October 2016. Very quiet campground that was kept up well. Bath house was rustic and very clean. Nice shower areas. Gravel sites that are fairly level. 50 amp service with some sites having full hookup for the same price. Would definitely return. - lwgorman

Stayed here for a couple of nights while rafting on the Ocoee. This is a small quaint campground. The sites are of good size and are all back in. There is a small bathhouse with 2 private shower rooms, which is probably enough for the size of the campground. The owners, are very friendly and maintain the campground very well. If we are in this area again, we will definitely stay here again. - theengle

This is a clean, quiet, adult only park. It is small (about 23 spots), but it
is nicely maintained and the park host is very friendly and helpful. All the spots are on the river or the creek. It is pretty close to Hwy. 74, but we had no problem with highway noise. The cable TV is basic and the Wi-Fi works if you have a spot fairly close to the office. The sites are level. They are pet friendly. We would definitely stay here again. - Capt.Deb

We stayed here for 8 nights while attending John C. Campbell Folk School. Owner was terrific! Small campground but wonderfully kept. Most had water, electric, sewer, cable tv, and potential telephone. A few (3?) did not have sewer, but they did have a dump station if needed. The bathrooms, showers, and laundry were spotlessly clean. Site #12 has a great river view, but no sewer. We moved to 19 later and that was nice too. Our friends were in #20 and it is probably the best overall site, although all of them are nice. - Slowroad

This is a very nice and clean park. All sites are on the river or creek. Site 12 is the best except for the highway noise. Beautiful setting if you can get past the road noise. Sites 21, 22 & 23 are on the creek, back in sites and further away from the main highway. If it wasn't for the road noise, I would give this park a 10. - User3010

The campground is well maintained, the streets are easy to navigate, and the sides are big enough for any size of RV. Each sides provides a big, level concrete pad with patio, picnic table, a fire pit and a very big grass area on each side of the motorhome. The owner was very friendly, drove me around with his golf cart and let me pic my side. The wifi signal was pretty good, the speed was fast enough for web browsing and checking my emails. The only reason why I give this campground "only" a 7 is, that I never saw dirtier bathrooms on any campground for a whole week! In one bathroom there was a cotton swab in the middle of the floor for the last four days of our stay, the whole floor and the shower tube was so dirty that nobody would like to use it. I checked the bathrooms every day and in my opinion they didn't clean it the whole week. - The campground is (specially for this area) 9 points - The sides are 10 points - The bathrooms a 0 points. - Columbus

Third time we have stayed here in the last eight months. Long pull through, long enough for our MH, towed veh, and another vehicle if we needed it. Paved streets, level pads, nice patio with fire pit. Nice lawns, easy hookups, good electric and cable tv. Had not had cell service before, ATT worked this time. Good WIFI. Stayed for a week this time, enjoyed the area, amazing scenery. We would return. - retirednrving

First time we stayed in our motor home. We stayed for 3 nights. We had contact with three staff members and all were pleasant and helpful. We were shown to our site and assisted in parking. The grounds were clean and well trimmed. The spaces and lots were the largest and best planned we have encountered. Cable and wifi worked well. No problems entering or leaving in our 40 ft. MH. There were several MH/ buses staying which were larger than ours. We didn't have ATT service in the park but did immediately upon entering the nearby highway. - retirednrving
