    Fall Creek Falls TN campground

    Does anybody here have any experience with hammock camping at the campground at Fall Creek Falls? I've seen some posts about doing the backwoods trails there, but not much about the campground itself. My family and I will be car camping with some friends there this weekend, but I'd like to take the hammock and tarp and set up outside rather than sleep in the tent.

    It has been a few years, but I don't think you would have any problems.

    Have fun.

    Last time I was there I saw quite a few hammocks, but it's still better to call and ask first.

    Great news! Thank you to all responders.

    My Skeeter Beater Pro came with rope to attach to trees with, but I have atlas straps on the way. Should be here tomorrow. That way there's no qualms against strapping up. I always feel a tinge of wrong-doing when hanging the thing up with the ropes that came with, although, thus far, I've never seen any damage from doing so. Still, better to be safe than sorry!

    Thanks again!

    If you need some strapping I live within a 35 minute drive of there I can bring you some. Let me know.
