There are two KOA Campgrounds in and around the Chattanooga area, each of which are great places to stay for visitors looking for improved tent or RV camping facilities or rental cabins in a campground setting. As is typical of KOA facilities, they both well-maintained with sizeable campsites, clean bathhouses, Wi-Fi, and laundry facilities. Both also have designated hiking trails within the campground’s property. I have stayed at both of the campgrounds and had a positive experience at both facilities. They are both close to Chattanooga’s major tourist attractions. The Chattanooga North, Cleveland KOA is off I-75, Exit 20 in the town on McDonald (near Cleveland). The other one is the Lookout Mountain/ Chattanooga West campground. It is just across the state line Trenton, GA and is located of I-59, just below where it intersects with I-24. If you are looking for the closest stopping point if you’re coming in from Nashville or Birmingham, the Trenton property is your best bet. If you want a spot that puts you closer to spots north of Chattanooga (such as the Lost Sea in Sweetwater), the McDonald location is a better spot. If you are a fan of KOAs, you won’t go wrong with either.
