Located just north of the 1996 Olympic Site, behind TVA Powerhouse Number 3, Thunder Rock Campground is nestled along the banks of the Ocoee River. There are two trailheads in the surrounding area - Thunder Rock Express and Dry Pond Lead with parking available at the Campground entrance (no fee for hikers). Many whitewater rafters and kayakers often enjoy this campground. For the hiking and biking enthusiasts the Tanasi Trail system that adjoins the Ocoee Whitewater Center is a short hike or drive from the campground. Open April - Nov.

Excellent location beside the Ocoee River. Nice and flat campground loop with a decent number of sites plus showers and flush toilets. The rocks on the southern side of the campground are fun for kids to climb on and the tree cover is excellent. The only ding for this campground is the proximity to the highway--noise can be a little annoying, though fortunately you can't see any of the vehicles.
