True West Campground and Stables
True West is centrally located in Big South Fork with easy access to 10 park trails. Add to that a mix of private trails and you have access to over 200 miles of riding pleasure. Guided trail rides can be arranged.
Our facilities include 33 easy access, level RV and camping sites with water and 30-50 amp electric. There are sewer hookups in 7 of the sites. Our large clean barns, with 18′ wide isles, and a total of 67 bedded stalls all with 2 bucket hooks for your water and feed, a saddle rack and a bridle hook.
We have 2 well appointed shower houses with heat and A/C, 2 large horse wash areas, a large 60′ round pen, and 2 stocked fishing ponds. Our mercantile has all kinds of gifts, camping supplies, horse tack, snacks, ice, firewood, maps, and Western wear. There is a large enclosed and covered deck for gathering and we hold special events monthly. For those who use it, there is a WIFI hot spot on the covered deck. We also have a Verizon “hot spot” where cell phone signals are hard to come by!
Don’t have a Camper or Living Quarter? No problem! We have lodging available to rent. If you like to feel more at home, we offer lodging in the Marshal Suite in the main building with 900 square feet of living space and can sleep up to 8 people. Looking for something a little more rustic? Try the Miner’s Shack Cabin that sleeps up to 6. Or, if you are still wanting to experience the full feel of camping, we have a camper you can rent that will sleep a family of up to 6. We’ve got you covered! True West also offers parking and the use of the common area to those just passing through for the day and needing access to the trails.
Even if you are not looking for a horse campground or RV park, True West provides access to many other activities offered
in the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area . The Park is one of the most popular outdoor destinations in Tennessee with hiking, fishing, hunting, white water rafting, kayaking, and mountain biking. There are also ATV trails available nearby at Pickett Park.
Motorcycle touring groups also find the area a great place to ride.
The natural beauty of this wilderness area will draw you to the Big South Fork.
It will be the genuine friendliness, positive atmosphere, and great hospitality
