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.
