Hiwassee Ocoee State park and Gee Creek Campground
Location: 404 Spring Creek Road, Delano Tennessee 37325

Nested in the Hiwassee river gorge lies this little hidden gem called Hiwassee Ocoee State park and Gee Creek campground which is also classified as a primitive campground. The campground has 47 campsites, each with a table, fire ring, and a charcoal grill. Each campground has a paved pull through parking area as well, which makes it suitable for most recreational vehicles (RV’s) depending on the size of vehicle or trailer and size of pull through which varies per site.

The campground has a large central bathhouse with warm running water, flush toilets, and showers. Running water for cleaning or washing dishes is available in various locations. A nature loop trail borders the entire state park, a large playground for children is also available and located in a central location with the bath houses.

If you’re looking for a nice primitive getaway with the family that isn’t far from civilization then you’ve found the place. Nearby you have access to the word famous trout fishing on the Hiwassee river, hundreds of miles of hiking, biking trails, white water rafting on the Ocoee river, dual sport and fire roads. I suggest reserving your campsite ahead of time.
