Hiwassee/Ocoee Scenic River State Park
Open: Open all year
Number of Sites: 47
The Hiwassee State Scenic Rivers' "Gee Creek" campground is a haven and a home-away-from-home to many river users. Campsites are more tent-friendly than most. We have a large open field that serves as overflow to the 47 campsites. Some of the campsites are close enough to the river to be lulled to sleep each night by the sound of rushing water. An easy walk will lead you along the rivers edge for fishing, nature walks or a brisk dip in the cold waters.
The Hiwassee is a popular fishing stream and anglers of all ages enjoy fine catches of large-mouth bass, yellow perch, catfish, and brown and rainbow trout.
The Cherokee National Forest, operated by the U.S. Forest Service contains many miles of foot and equestrian trails meander through the wilds of the Hiwassee and Cherokee National Forest. Unless otherwise designed, trails are for foot use only. Horseback riding trails are marked by a horse and rider silhouette sign.
Many picnic areas are scattered along the Hiwassee River. Most have tables and grills and are accessible to drinking water and restrooms. Picnickers are encouraged to leave their picnic sites cleaner than they found them.
