Gee Creek Campground lies in a large, wooded flat at the base of Starr Mountain, adjacent to the cold, clear waters of the Hiwassee River. Hundreds of tall pines reach for the sky, providing an ideal amount of shade, yet allowing a cool breeze to drift through the campground. The sites are widely spaced along two loops that meander amid the pines. The clean campsites are placed well apart from each other for a maximum amount of spaciousness. Even without a lot of ground-cover, the sheer number of trees and the distance between sites allow for adequate privacy. You never have to walk too far for water, as spigots are spread out along both loops. It will take the Hiwassee River and Gee Creek Wilderness to tear you away from the tall pines of Gee Creek Campground.
