Franklin State Forest Campground Professional Review and Guide
"Franklin state forest is one of those quiet, out-of-the-way places that seem to stay out of the public eye and are used only by locals. However, word is spreading about this mountain biking
and hiking mecca where the Cumberland Plateau drops sharply into Swedens Cove to form an escarpment with far-reaching views from the trail system running along its edge.
Tent campers will find the campground here quite rustic, even down to the homemade picnic tables. The Tennessee Division of Forestry will be the first to tell you they aren’t in the campground business. However, they do maintain this pretty little camp beside a small lake for those who want to explore the 7,000-acre slice of plateau country near the Alabama border."
