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. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Tennessee Resorvoir Development Agency campground on Tellico Lake. Sites are level gravel with grass between sites. Picnic tables and fire rings at each site. Utilities nicely placed and work well. Park is new so no shade until trees grow up. There is a nice fishing pier and a small beach and lake swimming area. There is a small store with some supplies and miscellaneous foodstuffs, bait, and ice. Sites are about 1/2 seasonal - all lakefront sites are taken with longer term rentals but available sites still offer decent views of lake with Smokey Mountains in the distance and across the road lake access. Location is secluded - approximately 4 miles to nearest town and 10 miles or so to nearest major shopping (grocery, Wal-Mart).Entrance is gated (gate closed after 10 pm). We were there after school started (off season) so not very busy and very quiet. There is a small store with some supplies and miscellaneous foodstuffs, bait, and ice. No WI-FI but Sprint and Verizon air cards both worked well - Sprint voice coverage fair, Verizon good. Satellite TV great, antenna TV fair. We used this park as a base for visiting family in area and it was perfect - we will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
