Top Ten Campsites near Nashville and Memphis
This TVA designated Small Wild Area has one of the most spacious campgrounds around. The loop is so large it seems to engulf the 26 sites spaced beneath a young second-growth forest. There is piped water and flush toilets but no showers.
Beyond Foster Falls is Grundy Lakes State Park. This site is listed on the National Historic Register. Once the site of mining activity, this area has seen prison labor, revolts, and the cooling down of the infamous Lone Rock coke ovens. Take the Lone Rock Trail to see these interesting sites. Nearby Grundy Forest State Natural Area, near Tracy City, has some challenging trails that pass strange rock formations, rock houses, and waterfalls that make you appreciate the area being donated by local citizens.
