Chattanooga Tenn Area

We are in Louisiana and are planning a trip to Chattanooga in June. Any suggestions on a campground? Good Sam's members so that would be a plus. Plan on doing a day trip to Lynchburg and maybe nashville. Any help would be appreciated.

we were there in October, the park was clean and everyone was friendly.

On I-24 just on the west side of Chattanooga is the Raccoon Mtn Caverns and Campground
Website for campground info----> Sites

Be sure and get a "premium" site.


Look Out Mtn from outside my campers window



Raccoon Mtn and caverns gift shop behind my site.

My neighbor has camped at the campground at Racoon Mountain in Chattanooga. It is just off of I-24 on the west side of town, off of Hwy 41. A Tennessee State Park that is nearby on Chicamauga Lake is Harrison Bay State Park. It you are coming up through Alabama on I-59.. Racoon Mountain is not far from where it intersects with I-24. Nashville would be about 105 miles to the northwest on I-24 and Lynchburg is a little off the beaten path south of I-24, near Manchester, TN. Hope you have a good trip...we live off of I-24 just out of Nashville.

Several suggestions for your trip.

We are heading to Chat. in April and plan to stay at Chester Frost Park which is operated by the county.

RV Park Reviews :: Hixson, Tennessee ( TN ) - RV Parks and Campground Reviews

This park does not take reservations. There is a big festival in Chat. called the River Walk or River Front Festival so you should check the dates you will be there. It is a lot of fun and good music.

In Nashville, I would recommend a COE campground - Seven Points. It is very convenient to the city and all the attractions. Since it is almost all full, you should make reservations asap is you want to stay there. Nashville is a great city - make sure you see the Country Music Hall of Fame. I enjoyed it even through I am not a big fan of country music.

Have a safe trip and enjoy TN, it is a great state to camp in.

Mtn biking, hiking and exploring at the Raccoon Mtn Trail System




Creek just outside the campground

Nashville area....another COE campground that is close to town...shouldn't give away my camprground but I will, Cedar Creek on Old Hickory Lake, just north of Mt. Juliet on Saundersville Road. You can make reservations ahead of time also. There is another one off of I-40 at the dam, called Nashville Shores, waterpark and campground.

We stayed at the KOA while we were in Chat. Make sure to visit Rock City, Ruby Falls and the Aquarium while you're there.
Make sure your GPS is set to "fastest time" and not "shortest distance" or you'll be discovering the mountains up close and personal.
