I-75 Campgrounds in N. Tenn.

In April, DW & I are headed to meet my son & his family as we head south from Cincinnati & they head north from Atlanta. We are thinking about somewhere between Knoxville, TN & the KY state line along I-75... maybe Cove Lake S.P. They have a PUP & we have a Roo.
Any ideas or comments ?

Very pretty area but not a lot of choices. How about driving a little farther and meeting in Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area? Lots of campgrounds.

You don't say how long you plan to stop.
IF you want some great scenery and a little or a lot of hiking then
I recommend Stearns KY Blue Heron Camp ground. Big South Fork National scenic river.
Tons of hiking, some decent biking, coal mine museum, scenic train in season etc etc....
Google says 23 miles from I 75
Well worth a stop if you have a full day or more to stay.

We like Cove Lake, usually visit there a few times each year. My only gripe about that place is getting out, the line for the dump station will block any other traffic from getting out. The longest we have waited there was just under 45 minutes and we were't dumping. Just couldn't get around the people waiting to empty tanks.

The Piegon forge suggestion I would go with. That area is loaded with Passport America campgrounds and countless things to do for you and the kids.Also you can leave your toad home. There is trolly service to anywhere from all campgrounds.

Then there is Norris lake Dam state park. saw two other FR's planning to go there this year, But Big South Fork recreation area will consume a life time, Bandy campground is best if approached from the west, a 11% grade approaching from East. Enjoy

Anchor Down RV Resort. Pricey, but very nice.

Last spring we spent time at Cumberland Falls (just inside Kentucky line from Tennessee) as well as a Tennessee State Park (Indian Mountain) just south of Kentucky/Tennessee line on I 75. Enjoyed both nights of camping and definitely enjoyed the day at Cumberland Falls.

Thank you all so much for the input. I've got a bit of research to do now on all these campgrounds.
