RV Travel – Toqua Campground Rally – Part 1

As the Wagon Master (trip coordinator) for our Tennessee Travelers FMCA Chapter, I’m always well pleased when one of our members volunteers to host a rally (Rally Master) and when the Lusk’s volunteered for June, I jumped at the offer.  After a little discussion we thought that Toqua Campground in Vonore, TN would be a good location as the attendees would be there for the short drive to our annual meeting on Wednesday.  The Lusk’s are very familiar with the area so many good events had been planned.

The campground is on the shore of Tellico Lake about 20 miles from the dam and is run by TRDA (Tellico Reservoir Development Agency) which is the group set up to control the development of Tellico Lake. 

They have 78 total RV sites and a few cabins and obviously caters to fishermen- we utilized seven of spots.  While most of the sites are occupied by return seasonal campers each year, they are required to keep 25% of them available for short term use. 

We took our coach to the campground, even though it’s only a 13 minute car ride from home as we can more fully participate this way.  However, I did like being able to run home for a shower rather than using the dinky one in the RV.  It also made it possible to take the pontoon boat up to the campground for group rides.  Here is our site, the view from the front of our site, and down the road.

One of our group snagged a premier site which became our evening gathering place.

While I’ve been past this campground many times, I’d never really seen it and I have been well pleased with what we found.  The sites were level and well spaced, the utilities were all convenient and worked well, and the WiFi was one of the better ones.  The campground is gated for security, has it's own boat dock and a small store with a few basic items.  The manager was super nice and very helpful at accommodating us.  I would definitely recommend the campground if you are looking for a place in the area and want somewhere must quieter than the Sevier County area.

More to come in the next post.

  3. Larry, This has to be one of your shortest RV trips ever! It's good to hear that this Tellico Lake Campground is a quality operation. They always seem to be quite busy. It's great that you could bring your pontoon boat up from the house to give folks trips around the lake. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
