Open All Year

Come see what we call our "Secret Smokies" in Tennessee! See Cumberland Plateau, the world's largest, which extends past the Smokies! You can go to the big destinations and pay the tourist trap prices or save money here!

You'll say WOW - Come see why! As one of the highest award-winning parks, we offer perfect over nights (1/2 way to Florida) or make us your outstanding destination! Just click on our pictures, some of them are surrounding our campground. You will be amazed at what you discover! We are right between Nashville and Chattanooga on I-24, in the middle of the beautiful heartland of Tennessee.


Plus , the Manchester KOA is near what we like to call "The Secret Smokies". You'll see caves, waterfalls, nature trails, a natural bridge arch and bountiful wildlife! We are at the beginning of the Cumberland Plateau, which extends all the way past the Great Smoky Mountains. (And the best part is, you don't have to spend the tourist trap prices of the Smokies!) Also FREE of charge is The Jack Daniels and George Dickel Distilleries and unknown to most people, the third largest Battle site of the Civil War.

The Manchester, Tennessee KOA is among KOA's highest award winning parks. Our many awards include the "KOA Rising Star," the "We are Family" award, TN ARVC Campground of the Year, (all of which only one campground wins), every "Presidents" award ( only 16 KOA's in the whole system have achieved this honor!) and multiple years "Founders" award. We were even in Rolling Stone magazine as one of the top 10 ways to enjoy Bonnaroo! (we have to save 5 copies for our mother!) We hold the highest ratings awards from Woodall's and Trailer Life Directories and we won the Trailer Life award of the "Top Campgrounds in North America". Reserve America voted us the "Top Outdoor Recreation" award. Thanks so much to all of you!

Come and visit us awhile. We'll be glad to see you, and you'll be glad you did!

KOA Care Camps

KOA Care Camps

This badge has been earned by this KOA Campground for compassion and support of KOA Care Camps. It is given out following our Big Weekend, and is in effect for one year.

Someday, cancer will be nothing more than a memory. Until that day, KOA Care Camps are here to bring hope, joy, healing and fun to kids with cancer. Working together, KOA owners, the KOA home office and great KOA campers like you raise funds for a single cause: to send kids with cancer to medically supervised camps where they have a great time with other kids who understand what they're going through. They do it all while receiving the treatments they need, absolutely free of charge! Until cancer is a memory, KOA Care Camps will continue to help these sweet kids make terrific memories of their own.
