We are delighted that you are considering staying at our campground while in the Chattanooga area. Our park is open year-round and is located at the base of Raccoon Mountain. It is just 1.3 miles off of Interstate 24 at the Lookout Valley exit (#174). Our location is perfect if you want great views of both Raccoon and Lookout Mountains, close proximity to area attractions, and an “easy off / easy on” exit that does not have much traffic. Most importantly, we are at the end of a well-maintained county road and our interior roads were designed to accommodate large RV’s.
Raccoon Mountain RV Park & Campground is the closest campground to the area’s major attractions: Tennessee Aquarium, Lookout Mountain, Southern Belle Riverboat, IMAX Theater, downtown Chattanooga, Warner Park, and Erlanger Medical Center. We are adjacent to Raccoon Mountain Caverns and are just one mile from the TVA Raccoon Mountain Facility along the Tennessee River.
We are the premier campground in Chattanooga and our goal is to provide you with an exceptional (and memorable) camping experience. Your satisfaction is very important to us and we hope that you will enjoy your stay so much that you will return when your travels bring you this way and recommend us to your friends.

Many campers inquire about having a camp fire and they are permitted in our county provided that they are being used either to cook food or as a source of heat. We ask that you limit your fire to natural vegetation and, request that under no circumstances you burn processed wood (treated or untreated), plastics, or other polluting substances. Important Note: The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture is trying to stop the spread of the Emerald Ash Borer which is currently damaging ash trees in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois. We have been informed by them (09/28/10) that this beetle has been found near Knoxville, TN. They are requesting that you do not bring firewood with you or onto our campground, as campgrounds are considered to be a “high risk” area because some campers like to bring their own firewood.
Please help stop the spread of the Emerald Ash Borer and other pests by not taking any firewood out of your state and only using local sources of firewood. We have beautiful ash trees on the property and do not want them damaged by beetles or larvae hidden in firewood brought into our area by campers. Accordingly, we must ask that you do not bring any firewood onto the campground. Firewood is available for sale at the camp office for $5.00 per bundle (tax included) This is a good value as the price has remained unchanged since 1995 and cutting firwoewood is very labor intensive. All firewood sold at our campground is from trees harvested either on Raccoon Mountain or nearby. Your cooperation and understanding of this threat is appreciated.
We have simplified our camp site offerings into three basic types: (please click on the site type on your left for pictures and additional information). Our rates are based upon the type of site and not on the actual utilities used.
Full Service RV Sites - $32.04 - $35.69 + tax per night
These sites all offer pull-through convenience and have water (city), sewer, cable TV, and electric hookups. Our premium (large) sites ($33.87) all have 50 amp electric service and are approximately 55 - 75’ in length and up to 25 - 40’ in width. There is no extra charge for 50 amp service ! We refer to the $32.04 sites as our standard full-service sites and these are good sites provided that your combined length (RV + vehicle length) does not exceed 35’. Note: We have had several campers with 25’ - 35’ travel trailers and 5th wheels reserve standard sites only to have no room for their vehicle. Please pay close attention to your total combined length when selecting a site.
Water & Electric Sites - $27.46 - 30.21 + tax per night
These sites are typically back-in sites and have 20/30 amp electric service and city water. Several have sewer connections. They are ideal for either tent campers, van campers, pop-ups, or travel trailers. Many are shaded while several are beside the pool and playground area and a few are adjacent to the bathhouse.
Primitive tent Sites - $18.31 + tax per night
These sites are primarily designed for tent campers. Some are heavily shaded while other have sun at varying times during the day. Some are close to the pool and bathhouse while others are more remote. Regardless of location, you have access to all campground amenities.
Site Notes: Please note that our rates include up to four people (2 adults + 2 children) on a site. Additional persons are $3.00 per day if over age 12, $1.50 per day if under age 12, and there is no charge for infants under age 1. A maximum of six people can occupy a tent site and up to eight can occupy an RV site.
Visitors: You are welcome to have visitors on your site between 8 AM - 10 PM. Guests need to register their vehicle at the office prior to going to your site. Site occupancy rules apply and you will incur an additional fee if more than four people are on your site.
Dump Station: We maintain a sanitary dump station for our guests and regret that we are unable to permit dumping by non-registered campers. A $3.50 fee, per use, is charged to help offset the cost of maintaining the station, tank, and field lines.
