        aww dang it dad now you're taking the fun out of it! lol

        If you want to backpack in and rough it a little bit, or just carry everything you need with you or find it when you get there. I like Savage Gulf. The hiking can be very nice. Sometimes in dry summers it can be hard to find water so call ahead if you plan on finding it there.

        I also like Henry Horton to "car camp". That means just pull up and throw up all your crap out of the car and set up. Horton has a lot to do and the Duck river.

        I've also camped at Montgomery Bell and it was nice too.

        I really Edgar Evans if you have a camper or pop up. The deck sticking out off the side of the hill you camp on is cool.

        That's just a few of the ones I like.

            I forgot to mention Fall Creek Falls.... lots to do when the weather is nice. hiking, fishing, lake, swimming, waterfalls etc. My drawback is that they have way too many camping spots and its too crowded for me. Just my 2 pennies.

              well when you folks get tired of hoofing it around the flat lands LOL come on up here and camp in real back country LOL.

              this area is about two hours from Nashville, about the same from Chattanooga and Knoxville. and some of the best country in Tennessee. and in the top twenty for the US in my book.

                  Fall Creek Falls is great country, but sometimes it can get crowded. Try out Cumberland Mountain State Park and Standing Stone State Park, but my favorite is Rock Island State Park. We usually take a week each year to camp at one of these.

                    I like Old Stone Fort Park in Manchester. It's got a little hiking, but nice campsites, and it's never crowded. They river is right there too. Henry Horton is about 5 miles from home, and it's ok. I also like Many Cedars Campground. It's inbetween Summertown and Hohenwald. They have nice campsites, trailriding, (horses only) and electric hookups. Decent bathouses too. It's right on the Buffalo River, so you can swim, float or fish when you get tired of riding. :)

                      I like Tims Ford at Devils Step. And Buffalo Buds on the Buffalo River. My friend Buddy Baldwin owns Buffalo Buds and you can canoe, fish, swim, camp, and just relax at his place.

                        I really like the Savage Gulf near Monteagle TN also known as South Cumberland Recreation Area. It's got a lot of trails for hiking most ending in a campsite and offers different terrain. You can hike along the rim for easier more scenic hiking or go into the Gulf for varying degrees of harder hiking. Theres also a cave down at Saw Mill in the middle of the Gulf and some old homesteads to look at. One area of the park is called Stone Door because of the massive crack in the rock you walk through and you can rappel down it if you have the gear. Awesome place.

                          Spent 3 days 2 nights at Savage Gulf recently. Wife went for the first time & loved it. Found out just how precious water was and what you bring is all you got. Had a very good & tiring time. Wants to go again so I have to get a better tent.

                              We enjoyed getting water at Schwoon spring. Little tricky at first finding it but the water tasted oh so good. Going again last weekend in October to do the Stone Door area. Last time did the South Rim & Finished on the North Rim.
