Save to Favorites


  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

The Ocoee-Hiwassee Ranger District of the Cherokee National Forest is looking for a Host Couple that are motivated volunteers to serve as a campground host at Thunder Rock Campground. Campground is located 1.8 miles northwest of the Ocoee Whitewater Center, just behind TVA Powerhouse Number 3. Nestled alongside the Ocoee River, this facility provides 37 regular non-electric campsites and one group site. The campground can accommodate small campers or popup campers and tents. Campground does not offer a dump station. However, water hydrants are located throughout the campground. This location offers flush toilets and warm showers. Thunder Rock is a popular destination for both whitewater and trail enthusiasts. The campground is open year round. Trailhead parking is available free of charge for the Tanasi Trail System, which includes approximately 30 miles of hiking and mountain biking trails. This system can be reached via Thunder Rock Express, Dry Pond Lead, or the Rhododendron Trail. Thunder Rock also provides access to the Benton-McKaye Trail. The nearby Ocoee River put-ins and Ocoee Whitewater Center, home of the 1996 Olymplc Canoe/Kayak-Slalom Competition, makes this an ideal location for rafters and kayakers alike. Directions: From the Ocoee Ranger Station, turn left onto Highway 64 and travel 10.9 miles to the TVA Ocoee Powerhouse Number 3. Turn right and cross the bridge to reach the campground on the right.
