Pet Friendly Notes

Pets are allowed on leash


This a great neighborhood campground with shaded campsites on Watts bar lake plenty of room to hike. The only downfall is there is not a lot to do if smaller children only a swing set available. Not to be missed though really nice overall.

No online or phone reservations available is a real issue when trying to plan a visit. I just can’t take a chance that there would be a "first come first served" site available after traveling 8 hours.

There are a lot of camp grounds that take reservations. I’m very glad that this one does not!! That gives us poor folks a chance to grab a spot. Love love love Riley Creek.
