Helping people make memories has been a Crosseyed Cricket specialty since our opening in 1970.
Enjoy a camping trip with your family will be a joyful memory for years to come.
Spend some time relaxing by the lakes or take a walk down the lakeside path to the restored Grist Mill and watch the sun set on a perfect Day in Tennessee.

Camping at The Crosseyed Cricket
Covering 50 acres of rolling east Tennessee countryside, The Crosseyed Cricket has 47 beautiful, wooded campsites with full hookups (30 and 50 amp), picnic tables and fireplaces.
Two bath houses with tiled floors and showers are available for your convenience, and both have adjacent laundry facilities.
Our 100 foot swimming pool and adjacent hot tub are all the more inviting because of the lovely rose bushes that surround them.
A large creek-side picnic shelter is available for group gatherings.
Because we know your campsite is your home away from home we have endeavored to make it special for you.
Some of our sites are near the pool and beside a small stream, and some are located in a grove of large hardwood and pine trees.
We think that you will find something just for you whether you're in a pop-up, trailer or motor-home.
The secluded, roomy group camp areas are well suited for scout, church or reunion camp-outs, and individual tent sites.
Water, electricity, fire rings and picnic tables help to make your stay enjoyable!
Our Picnic Shelter, Log Cabin and lakeside open Barn are all available for group or family get-togethers. Each has unique features and we're sure one will meet your needs. Contact us for rates for rental and availability of each unit. Although reservations are not accepted for campsites, reservations are required for use of these facilities.
Campsites are available on a first come, first served basis. Reservations are not accepted.
