The Safari tent is secluded but not too far from the main house in case you need anything. Hiwassee glamping is magically nestled inside the Cherokee National Forest. The safari tent site overlooks a creek and valley away from the hooks of everyday life to escape the stresses of a world wide pandemic. No cell phone service here. There is the Hiwassee River for fishing, tubing, kayaking; hiking trails inside resort property which also provides a private entrance to 200 acres of the Cherokee National Forest. Explore the public forest all the way to the Hiwassee River. Nearby hiking trails include Turtletown Falls and John Muir along the River.
The Ocoee River is 15 miles for more challenging activities like white water rafting and zip line. So reserve the Safari tent and glamp for a fun week or weekend.

This is an exclusive Tentrr Signature campsite. Tentrr partners with land owners to offer unique accommodations in beautiful outdoor spaces. Our campsites are off-the-grid which means they generally do not have access to electricity, wifi, or modern plumbing. Instead, they offer the chance to relax, unplug, and fully experience nature!
Your Tentrr campsite includes a 10'x12' (120 square feet) safari-style canvas tent on a raised wooden platform. Inside the tent you'll find one queen bed or a queen-size bunk bed (see photos for the exact setup). The tent is big enough for the bed plus one or two extra sleeping bags on the floor. Aside from the canvas tent, campers can also use the extra 5-person pop-up dome tent that’s provided. You'll also have a 6-ft picnic table, outdoor fire pit, 2 Tentrr Adirondack chairs, and a heating source to keep you warm and toasty at night.
Group Camping: We welcome campers with larger parties, but the standard Tentrr setup only includes the canvas tent plus the additional pop-up dome tent. You may need and are encouraged to bring additional camping gear of your own if you plan on camping with a large party.
Max Occupancy: This refers to the total number of campers allowed onsite with your reservation. You may have as many campers in your party up to the maximum limit that is set for the listing, but please note that the only bed provided as a standard amenity is the one set up inside the canvas tent.
Toilets: Every campsite is equipped with a camp toilet (we call it the Tentrr Loo). This is a simple wooden box with a toilet seat and a bucket inside. To use, line the bucket with a CleanWaste Sani-Bag supplied at the camp prior to use. Afterwards, simply tie the bag up and place it in a trash bag. CleanWaste Sani-Bags use a NASA-developed gelling/deodorizing agent that helps prevent spills and keeps everyone safe and clean.
Showers: Every Signature campsite comes with a Coleman Sun Shower. The sun shower has a reservoir that holds up to 5 gallons of water, potentially enough for multiple showers. It's constructed of heat-locking material that warms the water when it's left in the sun, even on cool days.
What you should bring:
-S'mores supplies & any food you'd like to eat
-A cooler to keep your grub from spoiling
-Bedding and pillows
-Lanterns and lighting
Other Things to Note:
Please note that we don't supply sleeping bags, pillows, bed sheets, or firewood. You may order firewood on the Tentrr reservation site and it will be waiting for you at the campsite upon your arrival. We are a NO SMOKING campsite. Your dog is also welcome as long as you clean up after him or her. We recommend bug spray in the Summer.
All Pets are welcome. Be sure to clean up after your pets!! No outside/offsite firewood is permitted, firewood is readily available for purchase at camp. Campfires belong only in the provided fire rings and are not permitted anywhere else on the grounds.
Interaction with Guests:
Upon check out, you should leave-no-trace of your stay and be sure your campsite is returned to its natural glory! While Tentrr does not charge a cleaning fee, we do expect campsites to be left how they were found. After you check out, take everything you brought in and be sure to leave your trash at the designated location on the property.
If a CampKeeper submits an incident report after your stay that details evidence of trash or damage to the campsite or the CampKeeper’s property, Tentrr reserves the right to charge a minimum cleaning fee of $50. Just make sure to follow the Camper Manual posted at your campsite and you'll be set!
