Prentice Cooper State Forest Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Perched atop Suck Creek Mountain, overlooking the Grand Canyon of the Tennessee River, 26,000-acre Prentice Cooper is a surprisingly quiet getaway for nearby Chattanooga residents. It was once a hunting ground of the Cherokee Indians, who lived along the banks of the Tennessee River where Chattanooga now lies. Later, the state took over these once abused lands, which had been selectively logged, then grazed.

Davis Pond campsite is small, with only a couple of developed sites, though at least two other groups could easily squeeze into the camping area. Set up your camp beside this small, man-made pond and break out the boots to enjoy nearly 40 miles of trails offering far-reaching views from places like Pot Point, set on the rim of the gorge. Mountain bikers can enjoy numerous forest roads that spur off the primary forest road, Tower Road."
