Douglas Headwater Campground is situated next to Douglas Dam on the shore of Douglas Lake, which is about 25 miles east of Knoxville. While weekly and monthly rates are not offered, the daily prices are affordable enough for any budget. Furthermore, Pigeon Forge and Great Smoky Mountains National Park are within 25 miles to the south.
Douglas Headwater is in a great location to explore both Knoxville and the national parks and forests to the south. However, there’s plenty of on-site boating and fishing opportunities to enjoy when you aren’t touring. There’s a swimming beach, boat launch, and horseback riding trails nearby. The Douglas Dam is also within walking distance of the campsites.
“A Hidden Gem. This lovely campground is well manicured with large camping spots. Most are shaded but a few are not well shaded. A lovely place to stay if you need a quieter atmosphere.” – Theresa, Google Reviews
