Sylco Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"If you place a high priority on quiet solitude and close-at-hand wilderness hiking, Sylco is just the place for you. It is located in an isolated area of the Cherokee National Forest in the extreme southeastern corner of Tennessee. You don’t have to worry about RVs or trailers coming to this campground. There are three ways to get in here, and each way is rough and remote, just like the Sylco area.

Primarily used as a hunting camp in fall, this campground is very lightly used the rest of the year. It is so lightly used in fact that the US Forest Service doesn’t even charge campers to stay here! And only a few of the 12 sites appear to get enough use to even beat down the grass
that grows around the picnic tables. It’s remote—no registration and no campground hosts. Not to say this place is ragged and neglected, it’s just remote—and clean."
