There is an Airstream Park in Crossville. We have stayed there several times. It's a really nice campground. It is called Tennessee Cumberland Plateau Campground. It's a really nice area that is equidistant from Knoxville, Chattanooga, and Nashville. While in Crossville, be sure to visit The Cumberland Homesteads. It is one of the planned New Deal Communities built by the Division of Subsistence Homesteads between 1934 and 1938. Many of the original homes are still there.

Be careful about going to TCPC..It is so nice and the people are so friendly you might just end up buying a lot there. It happened to us last year.

We plan on being back at the end of the month. If you are there stop by lot 60 and say Hi.

TCPC is a nice place to stay. If, for some reason, that does not work for you there are campgrounds at Cumberland Mountain State Park and a bit further away, Falls Creek Falls State Park. Many good golf courses. Bear Trace at CMSP is a good facility. I have not done a private campground in this area. The area is very scenic. Golf, some shopping, Cumberland Mountain Playhouse, drive in the country. A very laid back kind of area.

We stayed at Davy Crockett Campground in Crossville last year. Family run campground that, believe it or not, used to be a nudist colony. Campground is wooded, with several log buildings. They offer some good home cooking/fish frys/BBQ on weekends as well. We were pleased, and everyone did wear clothes. Owners very friendly and helpful.

I second the recommendation for Fall Creek Falls State Park, very beautiful, large campground, lake, etc... something for everyone. About an hour from Crossville.

Just a few hours north are Mammoth Cave (make a reservation for the best tours) and the Bourbon Trail in the Lexington/Bardstown Ky area). If you come north to this area is the Shaker Village, probably the best preserved Shaker settlement in the country. If you're a hunter you can go wild boar hunting close to crossville.

Check out the big treehouse. It's about five minutes off the interstate at Genesis Road exit. It's a great side trip but definitely don't take the camper since there is not a lot of room to turn around. To read about it Google preachers Treehouse Crossville Tennessee. Officially it's closed by the state but you can always wander in and pay a little donation. there's a caretaker there he's friendly. Even if you don't want to go up in it it's definitely worth the short drive out there to just look at.

We stayed at an Airstream only campground there and had a great time. Great people, very welcoming.

Some very nice state parks in the area and one town park that had a very large reservoir for Kayaking.

We hiked back to some very nice waterfalls.

If you are looking for any kind of night life, craft beer etc this is not the place.

I can't believe no one has mentioned Big South Fork National Recreation Area. This is a truly magnificent resource, with mt. bike trails, beautiful and interesting hiking trails, pristine rivers and several great campgrounds. These are north of Crossville, but well worth the trip. In the same area is Pickett State Park; also a neat place with a ice campground. Check it out.

Ditto on all the above. Also Deer Run CG is very nice. We haven't been there for a few years but spent a winter in an SOB there & the staff were great to work with. Spacious sites & grounds around the lake to walk dogs. No traffic noise as it is pretty far out.
