The Great Outdoors

Just down the road from the Cherokee Ridge campsites is Pogue Creek Canyon State Natural Area. On the Cumberland Plateau, Pogue Creek Canyon features unique geologic formations ready to be explored. You can hike along the gorge, or head off on surrounding trails to get a better understanding of the scope of the Plateau region. At the very least, you can get some heart-pumping, altitude-scaling hiking accomplished in this unique natural area.The 125,000-acre Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area is in Oneida. This place has something for every adventurer. Whether you want to boat down the South Fork of the Cumberland River, hike through the forests and foothills of the plateau, or scale the sandstone bluffs and rocky faces of this natural playland, there is no shortage of opportunity. If you’d rather see the park from a more leisurely point of view, you can reserve a wagon ride and take the scenic route.To explore the local woodlands without engaging in the rigorous hiking so common to the Cumberland Plateau region, head to the Catoosa Wildlife Management Area near Crab Orchard. There are sections of this WMA that are relatively flat, offering a wonderful stroll through the forest. However, there are still some challenging areas, such as a deep-cut canyon, should you want to push yourself a little further. The Catoosa WMA was started as a hunting ground and still maintains this sport. With the appropriate licenses and registrations, hunters can head here to test their skills. The local game population includes ruffed grouse, deer, turkey, wild boar, quail, and much more.

Explore the Area

Learn about a little regional history while you're camping at Cherokee Ridge Campground. In nearby Pickett State Park, the Pickett Archaeology Museum showcases artifacts of the prehistoric natives of the Cumberland Plateau. Not only that, but visitors to the museum can visit the nearby working dig site. Rock Creek Mortar Shelter Archaeological Dig Site features an 11,500-year archaeological and geologic history, providing a truly unique variety of items that provide insight into the area's past.History lovers looking to learn about something a little more recent can visit Historic Rugby. This British village, founded in the 1880s, showcases pioneer life in the Volunteer State. Visitors can stroll around the grounds to view the Victorian architecture, enjoy staged performances, or even attend one of the seasonal events. With so many options to fill the day, this unique living relic is a great escape into the past.The mild and temperate climate of Appalachia is perfect for growing grapes, so it isn’t a surprise that wineries dot the landscape. You can take a tour at one of the local wineries and enjoy a wine tasting, guided by an expert. Who knows? You just might find your new favorite flavor.When it comes time to restock or refuel the motorhome rental, a quick drive into the city of Jamestown will open up a variety of gas stations and convenience store options. Grocery stores are plentiful around the area too.In the South, banana pudding is the go-to dessert, especially after some barbecue. This popular treat consists of creamy banana pudding mixed with chunks of banana, whipped cream, and layers of vanilla cookies. So no matter how big your dinner, try to save some room for dessert.

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.
