Camping at Cardens Bluff

Hello, everyone. This week, I'm staying at Cardens Bluff Campground near Hampton, TN, in the Cherokee National Forest. This campground caters primarily to tent campers; only a few sites are accessible to trailers. Sites 28 and 29 are the best for trailers. Site 25 is a possibility for a small trailer, along with site 16. Site 2 will accommodate a trailer but is in a poor location near the park entrance.

There are no electrical hookups here, and water is available only at centralized locations. The cost is $12 per night, and the campground hosts have been extremely helpful and friendly.

I am working "remote remote" this week, using a Bluetti AC100 solar generator alongside a Renogy 100W solar panel. We have been socked in with rain and fog today, so I was unable to charge, but the forecast is for clear skies tomorrow.

Lake access is difficult from the campground (it is, after all, situated on a bluff). There is a boat launch nearby, however.

If you are in east Tennessee and are interested in dry camping, I would certainly recommend Cardens Bluff.

We live in Hampton and have camped in that same site several times. Check out Watauga Dam Campground below the dam. It’s on a smaller lake with great waterfront sites and hookups.
