Top Ten Campsites near Nashville and Memphis
Bandy Creek Campground is situated in the heart of the Big South Fork with four loops, one of which is exclusively for tent campers. You can let the hot showers flow after an active day exploring the BSF. A trail map of the Big South Fork, available at the Visitor Center near Bandy Creek, will direct mountain bikers to trails they can pedal. Two nearby choices are the Duncan Ridge Loop and the Collier Ridge Loop. A great hiking loop ofÂ six miles, the John Litton/General Slavens Loop passes by the John Litton farm, a pioneer homestead, a large rockhouse and Fall Branch Falls. Canoers can start at nearby Leatherwood Ford, cruise some exciting rapids, and enjoy some decent bass fishing. Kayakers will want to paddle the section above Leatherwood Ford from New River put-in passing such rapids as Washing Machine, Double Falls, and Jakes Hole. Before leaving, stop by one of the interesting rock formations, such as Needle Arch or Twin Arches.
