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

This campground is located approx. 13 miles east of Tellico Plains, Tn off the Cherohola Skyway. Sites are large and generally level. Water not located at every site with faucets located through out the grounds. Every site has electric, 30/50 amp. Most sites are shaded. TV reception is poor, no cable or WiFi. Fire rings at each site. There is a large lake nearby for tubing and swimming. Bathrooms were clean with plenty of hot water for showers. Campgrounds were very quiet and peaceful. Stayed here in a popup motorcycle camper...and would definitely return. Price was with Golden Age Pass. - mailman01

Stayed for a weekend for the first time and enjoyed the park. Roads could be a little narrow for a longer RV, but it can be done. Each loop has several water bibs and if you have enough hose you can fill your fresh water tank there. There is also a new loop for the dump station that appears to me much easier to use than the one it replaced. We will be back here, nice to be outside and have plenty of shade. - Helmsey

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

The view is lovely, but we will not be returning. This campground is not family friendly. We were supposed to have a two night stay but after returning from our rafting trip we were told to leave without refund because our dog was barking from inside the camper. We asked around and most campers said the dog was not a problem. We had done all requested of us including providing shot records but had the distinct feeling we were not welcome from the time we arrived when the campground manager suggested we tranquilize our pet because she did not seem happy. We have taken her camping a lot and have never had a problem before. The campsite was small; so was the bath house. I think this is geared for local use not for travelers. - munrofamily

Quite out of the way, perfect for a weekend to spend or go rafting in the area. The owner, will work with you on late checkouts, etc so you can get back from rafting before going home. Our site was level, shaded. There isn't much room between sites, but room behind to sit on the banks overlooking the river. There is even a boat doc and extra parking for boats. We had decent Verizon service. - the burtons

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

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

We have stayed here before while visiting friends in the area. The staff has always been courteous and friendly.
On this trip our rear A/C unit went out so the staff moved us to a shady site to help keep us cool.
That was our third stay with them and we highly recommend their RV Park. - Crabman

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 was our first time staying here. The campground has easy access off Hwy 64, but is far enough back that it's very peaceful. There is a large sign coming from the east, but not the west. The sign at the entrance could be closer to the street. It's a small campground; the sites are spacious with fire rings and picnic tables. The owners are friendly and keep the grounds and facilities clean. They clean the restrooms and showers twice a day when it's busy. There are garbage cans placed around the campground, which are emptied at least once a day. The pond is surrounded by a grassy area for playing. It's dark at night which is great for star gazing. The only real downside for us is that the restrooms/sink area is cramped, and more restrooms and showers would be helpful. It's a great location for the Ocoee National Forest and Cherokee National Forest areas. We'll stay here again next time we're back in the area. - Ursula A

Third time camping at Persimmon Creek but first time in a camper. Full hookups and electricity at each campsite plus there are also nice restrooms and showers. Very relaxing campground. Large sites with firerings at each site. Free Wifi. The tent camping sites are very large and well spaced. Some have water and electric. - Judi in Jax

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

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

Small adult only RV park right on the Peace River. Sites were nice and shady and gravel covered. Owner was very friendly and helpful.
Park was close to Rt. 19/74 but road noise was not noticeable. Some site back right up to river.
TV cable was very good. Wifi a little slow.
Less than a mile to the new casino (Eastern band Cherokee Indians, Harras) that opened in Murphy if you are the gambling type. We are not but did stroll through.
We would camp here again. - Littleredsportscar

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

Very nicely laid out park with huge, extremely level sites, one row of which backs up to the Nottely River (which you're not supposed to swim in, sadly - I think). All the sites have a nice patio-ish type area for a picnic table. They pay careful attention to the landscaping, but they do seem to have a issue with moles so beware if you're walking along the river sites in stilettos. The camp host was super laid back - check in and check out times weren't strictly enforced (within reason, I'd assume - we didn't push it) and we were told to feel free to wash our rig and toad if we so desired. Verizon data service was good enough for us to do our day job and the Verizon voice service was sufficient for decent voice quality. WiFi is provided by the park but, as one might expect, could be sketchy if the park is full. My speed tests on their WiFi showed a 3Mb up/3Mb down connection. No issues at all getting DirecTV satellite reception. I'd love to give them a "10" but can't as they have fire pits at each site and, while large and level, there's not much shade to be had. In fact, if you desire afternoon/evening shade, avoid the back-in spots along the river and take a pull-through site. There was some road noise as you're right off a four-lane highway, but if you're on the far side of the park it's hardly noticeable even when outside. - PirateMonkey

Largest and most level Rv site we've ever had! All roads are paved and concrete. Grass was well taken care of. Hookups were excellent. Owners very friendly. We had an unexpected additional member stay with us-I called and asked how much extra-was told it was OK. There is road noise-but with the AC on you can't hear it. Will definitely return! - n2camping
