Ocoee Whitewater Center
Thunder Rock Campground is in the Cherokee National Forest in Eastern TN and runs along the Ocoee River. It is a very popular destination for both whitewater and trail enthusiasts. There is trailhead parking available for the nearby Tanasi trail system, which includes approximately 30 miles of hiking and mountain biking trails.
The campground sits behind the TVA Ocoee Powerhouse Number 3 just 1.8 miles northwest of the Ocoee Whitewater Center. There is a campground host at the entrance next to the main bathhouse. We camped here in June on our Southern Highroads Trail trip and loved being by the water. We didn't have a chance to hike all of the trails but did walk the Rhodedendrum Trail by the river. We also visited the center of the 1996 Olympic Canoe/Kayak-Slalom Competition.
Located on Highway 64 about 7 miles west of Ducktown, Tennessee.
Day use parking is available in the lower lot at the Ocoee Whitewater Center
From the Ocoee Ranger Station, turn left onto Highway 64 eastbound 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.
