"Over Our Heads" Waterfront Tennessee River

Max Rig Size
Same Day Requests
This is a half acre lot in a camper neighborhood. The property has 60 feet of waterfront on a small Creek connecting to and only 250 feet away from the Tennessee River. Although your rig will not have shade cover, there's tons of shade for you under the RV cover and on the water end of the property (giant mature trees). Lots of open space for your dog to exercise, or for your family to play yard games in. We can accept guests almost any day. We are almost always at the property on Friday evening until Sunday evening, but we won't get in your way. We can still accept guests during the week, but you won't see us. In a quiet camper neighborhood with families and retirees. Property has a private boat dock and a deck down on the creek. Both of these are in shade most of the day. Up top is a large RV cover, 80 feet long (our trailer and boat are under cover). At the back of the cover is about 25 feet with furniture, swing, a gas fire pit, fans, and a dining table. Under cover is in shade all day, and you are welcome to use this area as much as you want, even if we are there. There's even a hammock overlooking the water. The neighborhood is generally quiet. We just got new neighbors 2 lots over that has a small dog that barks a lot (sorry, we're working on that). The neighborhood across the creek sometimes does karaoke at night and that can be heard, sometimes up until 11pm or so. We have a nice smoker grill (gas or charcoal) you are welcome to use as long as you clean it up. There's a public boat ramp 4 miles away and you can tie your boat to our dock if you'd like. There is spotty Verizon 4g, and we're told AT&T works pretty good. There's no local over the air TV available. Please note, the Tennessee River can flood in the winter. The water can get up onto the property. There's always warning because the flooding happens when they open up the dam. After a flood, it's usually 2 weeks before the road and driveway are dry enough to drive on. Suggested Local Attractions:Shiloh National Park, lots of Civil War sites and historical markers, Savannah Tennessee, Tennessee River, Pickwick Lake, tons of great barbeque restaurants. Memphis only about an hour away. But this property is designed for relaxation and getting away from it all.

Nice location in many ways. It is a neighborhood for only RVs with very wide and long lots/sites. A tiny 30-second stroll leads to the river with shaded docks containing recliners. The yard was big enough for my dog to run like crazy. It is a 10-minute drive to Savannah TN, a cute town with groceries, restaurants, parks, and several blocks of stately restored southern homes (many over 100 years old). The hosts are nice, easy going, and kept in communication. I enjoyed our conversations and am grateful for the information they provided

The location is off the beaten path and very relaxing. It is right on a portion of the river. The hosts are gracious and offered their outside furniture and other things to us.

The hosts generously shared the facility’s amenities including lawn chairs and dock. They communicate well and gave excellent instructions for setting up on their level gravel site.
