Round Mountain Campground

Area Status: Open

This campground is located near the top of Round Mountain in Cocke County. Situated at 3,100 feet, it is one of the highest-elevation campgrounds in Cherokee National Forest. The altitude, dense vegetation of rhododendrons and hardwoods, and a small mountain stream create natural air conditioning during the hot summer months.
