     Perfect place to Come camp, hike, fish, or just relax in style out At what was a really nice tobacco farm, we have been developing into a campground, which lies along an old rail road bed directly off hwy 91 that used to operate between Mountain City Tn and Damascus Va which is 4 miles north of here.  The campground is located at the top of the new Laurel Creek Trail which was a federally funded rail trail conversion project that cost over $350,000 so far and it is a park like setting from the edge of the campground till 3 miles north where it ends at the Virginia state line.  We are situated on 30 acres of private property surrounded by 1000’s of acres of national forest! There is Two RV sites with Full hook ups for now but where adding 2 more by spring, one of which has a fully furnished 5th wheel which I offer for rent starting again April 1. Then we have 9 other primitive Rv/campsites that have access To clean potable water and There is a porta-potty for use until the bathhouse and clubhouse which is a studio style apartment construction is completed early this spring 2020.  The property offers many recreational opportunities whatever your heart desires from hiking, biking, fishing, wildlife viewing, or hunting this place is truly amazing.

Guest access:

     You have direct trail access to the new Laurel Creek Trail as long as  Long as  Johnson county trails association does not put a gate up, the trail was destined to be extended 2 more miles directly into damascus Virginia in the near future and will connect up with the legendary Creeper but apparently that is not gonna happen now! To access the trail from the 5th wheel head to the north end of the property, follow the gravel road up towards the bathhouse area you will see a trail that drops back down onto the old railroad Bed and then go about 100’ and your on the trail. We are the only private property with direct access to this trail, if you go about 1/2 mile down that trail from here is a section of the Boone Trail which has been really improved upon recently and it goes all the way up to the Iron Range Trail which was The old Appalachian Trail Route before they made the new route the next Ridge west of here, But this area offers a much more peaceful hiking experience and is really amazing given the mild climate we get here with abundant wildlife and next to no mosquitos this place is awesome!

     The Property offers access to over 200 yards of stocked trout fishing that could arguably be some of the best fishing east of the Mississippi.  You will have access to more trails as i open them up which go up the ridges, So in the near future think about bringing your ATV or side-by-side! if you have any questions I am just a phone call away! There is Verizon cell phone service throughout most the property and/or Wi-Fi calling available with a password for people without verizon and also have high-speed internet acces! Any questions just ask and I will work hard to accommodate your needs! Please just be especially respectful of the immediate area around my house and outbuildings and call if you have any questions anything after checking in
