Horse Cove Campground

Horse Cove Campground Professional Review and Guide

"Horse Cove is an unpretentious, small campground adjacent to playful Santeetlah (San-TEE-lah) Creek. Located primarily along Horse Cove Branch, a tributary of Santeetlah Creek, its minimal facilities have an unpolished, old-time feel. In a way, it is two campgrounds: the lower 6 being year-round sites and the upper 11 warm-weather sites.

The lower, year-round sites on Santeetlah Creek are across Forest Service Road 416 from the main campground and have a spur road of their own. A pit toilet is the only amenity, although water is available from a spigot in summer and from the creek in winter. These sites overlook Santeetlah Creek from a heavily wooded knoll."

Horse Cove Campground is located in the Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest (one of the last old growth forests in the southeastern US). Camp sites are located in a cove on the banks of a moderately-sized stream, are semi-private and can accommodate tents through RVs. (Didn't see hookups.) Restroom facilities clean and adequate but without showers. Convenient to wilderness trailheads and Kilmer Memorial loop (w/ very large trees). Closest supplies 5 miles outside park. Will definitely add to return list.
