Looking for the perfect spot to blend exciting amenities and the beauty of nature? There is no better place to relax than the Sweetwater KOA!

The beauty and quiet setting of this KOA Campground makes it a favorite with overnight campers, as well as families enjoying an extended vacation or weekend getaway. Our sites are Big Rig friendly and our cabins make your stay feel a little more like home. We recently added some new amenities that everyone can enjoy. Challenge your family and friends to a game of Water Wars or Corn Hole, pan for gems in our new Gem Mine (Spring 2021), bounce on our updated jumping pad, or spend some time relaxing at our catch and release pond which is fully stocked with bass, blue gill and catfish. Our camp store features a variety of things to fill your needs. 

While you are staying with us, take some time to enjoy and experience all that the surrounding area has to offer. Visit the Lost Sea that offers a unique cave experience, take a tour at Mayfield Dairy Farms or Sweetwater Valley Cheese Farm and go shopping at Sweetwater's Antique District. If you'd rather take in the scenery, take a drive through the Cherokee National Forest or down the Cherohala Skyway. You can immerse yourself in nature with a short walk down one of our nature trails, go boating on a nearby lake or by bird watching. Our campground provides the perfect base camp for a day trip to the Great Smoky Mountains, Dollywood and many other fantastic attractions. And now through our partnership with RVshare if you need an RV for your adventure you can order one and have it delivered right to your campsite at the campground - just click here!
