Sept '13 we tried to camp in the Spring Creek free camping with our 25' Airstream TT but we came back to Hiwassee/Ocoee Scenic River SP. The road to Spring Creek free parking is ROUGH and very DUSTY. The first camp area is the one used by the horse campers and is about 4 mi. past the State Park. The next free camp spot is about 2 mi. farther up Spring Creek Rd. Again, it was very dusty with parking right at the road. We chose to not proceed to the other free campsites and backtracked to Hiwassee/Ocoee SP. where we paid $9 per night with Golden Age Pass. Nice place. Some TV reception.

On 10-07-11 we called Hiwassee Scenic River Park Spring Creek at 423-263-0050. They stated that the campground (Gee Creek) is $14 per night with a maximum of 14 days. There are no hookups and it is more for tents than RVs or campers. The free camping is NOT at Gee Creek but is PAST it.

Gee Creek Campground has had a name change. It is now called- "Hiwassee/Ocoee Scenic River State Park" There is information about the campground here; http://www.tn.gov/environment/parks/Hiwassee/ Spring Creek camping is just past the campground alongside the road.

From I-75 take Exit 25, turn east, (toward Cleveland/Ocoee)stay on 25th St. which becomes APD 40, take the Ocoee exit (Hwy. 64) East, toward Ocoee. Turn left (North) on Hwy 411, stay on 411 until you cross the Hiwassee river bridge. The Gee Creek campground and road turns right past the bridge, directly across from Savannah Oaks Winery (can't miss the sign)--I'm guessing 1/4 of a mile. Gee Creek is a State Park campground and info center, and Spring Creek is past that, as described above

These sites are along Spring Creek which feeds into the Hiwassee River. From Benton, go north on 411 to the bridge over the Hiwassee. Just after the bridge, turn right and proceed toward the Gee Creek Campground, a state park. Do not turn into the campground, but proceed along the road (Spring Creek Road) that runs between the railroad track and the river. This road will change from paved to gravel, eventually turning left to cross over the RR track. Large vehicles may have difficulty here. The sites are dispersed along the right side of the road, which eventually connects to Tellico-Reliance Road, AKA 315. All sites are primitive. The first one is often used by horseback riders for their trailers, so may not be a good choice. Camping here is subject to Forest Service regulations. The creek is stocked with trout. There is excellent hiking, whitewater, fishing, caving, and climbing nearby. Please treat the area with care, and remove all traces of your presence.

Benton is on US 411, NE of Chattanooga and just slightly northeast of Cleveland, TN by about 15 road miles.
