Campground Description

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.

Q: Respectfully my hiking partner and I plan to hike the BMT in Sep/Oct 2014 and would like to mail our resupply boxes to the Thunder Rock Campground, if possible. Please provide the details on how to accomplish this (e.g. address, hours for pickup, phone #, etc.). Thank you. Tom Fuller -Guest

A: Thunder Rock does not have a physical address, so it is not an option to have a package sent there. The White Water Center would be your best bet if they will let you have the package sent there, however, they are closed on Tuesday and Wednesday. Good luck on your journey.
