Welcome to the Decatur / Wheeler Lake KOA

The inviting waters of Wheeler Lake surround this KOA, perched on a peninsula and dotted with native trees. The campground makes the most of its enviable setting, with sites overlooking the water, right along the waterfront and tucked among shady trees. Thanks to the campground's own boat ramp, it's easy to get out on the lake for a carefree day of fishing, water-skiing or exploring the TVA chain of lakes. A sandy beach welcomes swimmers, and there's plenty of space for strolling, horseback riding and bird-watching. Rent a kayak, canoe, jetski or a bike (child/adult sizes) to explore the lakeshore or campground. Max pull thru: 75 feet.
