Fun and Exciting Outdoor Activities

Rock Climbing

Located along Lookout Mountain, the sandstone boulders of Cherokee Rock Village are a premier rock climbing location in the country. The site has everything from gentle rising broad boulders that may be enjoyed by a novice to vertical rocks for the experienced sport climber.

There are over 200 top rope routes, trad climbing and bouldering. For detailed information about climbing CRV, pick up a copy of The Dixie Cragger’s Atlas from the camp store.


Nestled in the beauty of nature, you will find the perfect campsite to enjoy your visit to the park. Camping options include over 100 primitive sites, RV sites, dump station, and fresh water for water supply.

For your comfort there is a heated bath house located adjacent to the pavilion.
