We have secured the entire Mountain Oak Cabins and Campground for SAE. Mountain Oak has showers, a laundry room and electrical and water hookups at most campsites. Mountain Oak also has twenty-nine 30 and 50-amp hookups for RVs.
There are 47 campsites at the campground (but do not be alarmed there is plenty of spots for camping that are not designated as campsite that we have the ability to use) with 18 of the spots having electricity and water and 29 spots having 30 and 50 amp electricity, sewer and water hookups for RVs.
Mountain Oak is located on Mulky Gap Road just one block from the intersection of Blue Ridge Highway (Old US 76) and Mulky Gap Road. Three miles past Mountain Oak Mulky Gap Road becomes Forest Service Road #4.
This should be an excellent offering of trails between Beasley Knob (5 miles from campsite), Cooper’s Creek/Suches (3 miles from campsite) and Tellico (35-40 miles from campsite).
SCENERY/THINGS TO DO:
Due to our location there will be plenty of sight-seeing for those who are not interested in off-roading. Among the options are:
