Cardens Bluff Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"If Cardens Bluff were private land it would go for big, big bucks-the scenery is that outstanding. Luckily for us tent campers, we can overnight here for ten bucks a shot. Tall mountains rise from the clear blue-green water of Watauga Lake. The camping area stands on a peninsula jutting into the dammed Watauga River.

To make a good thing even better, the forest service has improved the campground by revamping old sites and adding walk-in tent sites and a new bathhouse with showers. To make a good thing even better, Watauga Lake offers a swim beach, boat ramp, and hiking trails that meander through the nearby Pond Mountain Wilderness. However, Cardens Bluff is such an appealing campground that you may not even want to leave your site."
