Little Oak Campground Reviews

This campground is a great way to experience South Holston Lake. The campground has nice amenities, but you still feel like you’re camping. The scenery from nearly every location within the campground is beautiful. There can be noise from boat motors especially over on the main side of the lake. The road to and through the camp is paved, which makes access super easy. The campsites are a good size and don’t feel to crammed together. The hosts in my experience have all been quite nice. The only complaint I have is the gates do not get closed at the time they say they’re supposed to. It was not nice when someone came to the neighboring campsite at 11 PM, turned on a loud generator and made a big racket trying to level their camper. It would also be nice if one loop was tent camping only so you wouldn’t have to hear the noise of generators. Overall though, this is a campground I will definitely be returning to.
