The Hiwassee State Scenic Rivers' "Gee Creek" campground is a haven and a home-away-from-home to many river users. Nestled in a pine forest with its carpet of soft pine needles underneath, this quiet campground is crowded each summer weekend. Campsites are more tent-friendly than most.
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.
Gee Creek primitive campground has 43 sites, each with a table, fire ring and a grill. Public water and a bathhouse containing sinks, commodes, and hot showers are located near the center of the campground.
