RV camping at Bean Pot Campground is a great way to enjoy the natural beauty of Tennessee. The campground is a short drive from Cumberland Mountain State Park. The park is centered around Byrd Lake, which is a very popular place to go paddling. On the weekends, you can rent kayaks, canoes, and paddleboards, or you can opt to bring your own. The park also offers rental fishing boats with electric motors. In the lake, you'll find bass, bluegill, and catfish, as well as trout during the winter. This state park is also a popular place for hiking and biking - 14 miles of hiking trails run through the woods and along the lake, as well as a 1.5-mile mountain biking trail that is appropriate for beginners. There is also a swimming pool and a nearby golf course. Bird watchers will find many species of birds here, including ducks, herons, and kingfishers as they migrate north.The Catoosa Wildlife Management Area is also located just north of the campground. This massive preserved area is a very popular place for bird watching as well as for hunting. Turkey, deer, grouse, and many unique bird species are present in the area. Check seasonal hunting regulations before visiting the area. The area is also a very popular place to go hiking. You can use a few hiking trails as well as hundreds of miles of logging roads to explore the area.Motorhome camping in Crossville also makes it easy to visit Watts Bar Lake, a large reservoir in the area. The reservoir is a very popular place for boating, fishing, and swimming during the summer, and there are several access points around the lake.

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


How does check-in work?


Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
