Camping and Boating Locations--Southeast

Hi all,

We haven't planned a summer vacation yet and are thinking of finding a location where we can camp and have our boat nearby--somewhere in the southeast. We would be tent camping so would want a decent campground (facilities) that's on or near a lake where we could drop the boat either at anchor or in a marina for the week.

Home base is Charlotte and we're most interested in locations north and west of us. We have typically gone to North Georgia--Lake Blue Ridge and Lake Nottely, so we're looking for something different--and some other activities besides boating.

Kind of interested in Tennessee but open to other ideas. Thanks TT for any ideas!@

Jordan lake near raleigh has a ton of camp sites, a lot of which are lake front. My parents routinely take their boat and anchor it at the campsite when they camp there. Poplar point is a favorite.

Edit: just noticed you said north and west, but it's still worth a try.

I really enjoy Hartwell. Huge lake with little traffic. I know that is totally south and east of you but that and Clarks Hill lake out side of Augusta are my go to's.
I usually camp at wildwood park on Clarks hill, and Watsadler on Hartwell.

I am from east TN and can direct you to several really nice spots. Everyone's favorite seems to be Norris lake (the tourism lake of the south), and it is completely beautiful. Deep, clear, and expansive. They have tons of great spots to camp, surf, eat, etc.



I also really like Cherokee lake for camping and water sports, although there are less amenities nearby such as restaurants or marinas with large shops. If you like primitive camping, this is another nice choice, and we typically use Fall Creek Boat dock & campground.



Another favorite a little further west is Center Hill Lake. Campgrounds, super deep lake, nice marinas, etc. Most popular marina is Hurricane. This is where I spend my weekends these days, and it's a great spot with several waterfalls nearby to explore as well.

Happy to offer guidance on any of these.

Hi all. . . thanks for the great suggestions, even those that are in different directions, as there will be other future trips to be planned.

Foggy, thanks for the TN suggestions--I will start looking into those and the guidance will save me a lot of time!

How far do you want to travel? Northern AR and Southern MO have some great lakes. Table Rock, Beaver, Bull Shoals... all great lakes. Lots of camping around them too. Bout 10 hours from you though.

Thanks mzimme! Not opposed to more distance if there is nice scenery and things to do when we're not on the boat!

Have you been to Lake Jocassee in upstate SC? Not sure what the camping situation is.

Of course I can't imagine going anywhere other than Blue Ridge

Jocasse is an awesome lake! Devils state park has RV pads with water and power. Last time i was there, there was no place to dock boat over night though.
