Known as "Gee Creek Campground" the overnighting area of Hiwassee–Ocoee Scenic River State Park lies in a large, wooded flat at the base of Starr Mountain, adjacent to the cold, clear waters of the Hiwassee River. The sites are widely spaced along two loops that meander amid the pines. The clean campsites are placed well apart from each other for a maximum amount of spaciousness. Even without a lot of groundcover, the sheer number of trees and the distance between sites allow for adequate privacy. You never have to walk too far for water, as spigots are spread out along both loops. Gee Creek is open all year, yet it is heavily used only on summer weekends.
