Backbone Rock Campground Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Backbone rock is a narrow, tall sandstone spine around which Beaverdam Creek flows. The rising mountain ridges, geologic beauty, and mountain stream conspire to create a scenic setting. The small campground stands alongside bubbly Beaverdam Creek. A paved road makes a simple one-way loop through an attractive wooded flat, the kind of place you would want to camp.
After being acquired by the Cherokee National Forest, Backbone Rock was developed by the Civilian Conservation Corps. Today we have a campground, picnic area, and fun trails to hike, with a historic theme."
