Let's talk camping

Camp Chet is dedicated to providing the setting for an amazing camping experience to anyone looking for immersion into lush Tennessee forest. We have several camp areas and many miles of hiking trails on 994 acres of the Cumberland Plateau near Chattanooga TN.
Our well insulated off-grid cabins provide a bed with fresh linens, grill and fire pit, as well as a nearby port-o-potty and pavilion. This is a great choice for new campers and seasoned campers alike.
We also offer well-spaced RV sites with power and water hookups for those that want to bring their own accommodations or if you love your own RV / Camper rig but want to be off-grid, we have Boondocking areas as well.
And last but not least we have loads of spots for those that want to embrace nature in their own tent or hammock. You may choose a spot you can park near or we can point you to some amazing spots you hike in to... your choice.
If you want to chill at camp, you will love the quiet and relaxing remoteness. If you are into hiking, you will find miles of trails... some easy and some challenging. Want to do some climbing / bouldering? Yeah... we have that too.
Make your reservation now and come camp with us!

A little about us


Alpha Omega

He is the reason for everything, everywhere, for all time.
I think that pretty much sums it up.


Property Manager

Robert's primary roles tend to be site design, planning, and development. He is the big ideas, long term visionary, impossible dreams guy. He is most often found on a big machine building a road or camp site covered in sweat, dirt and a little blood.


Operations Manager

Ruth's primary roles are guest relations and day to day operations. She is often heard saying "That's a cool idea Robert but how do we pay for that?" or "Get your head out of the clouds and help me with these sheets."

Ezekiel 34:25-31

“I will make with them a covenant of peace and banish wild beasts from the land, so that they may dwell securely in the wilderness and sleep in the woods. And I will make them and the places all around my hill a blessing, and I will send down the showers in their season; they shall be showers of blessing. And the trees of the field shall yield their fruit, and the earth shall yield its increase, and they shall be secure in their land. And they shall know that I am the Lord, when I break the bars of their yoke, and deliver them from the hand of those who enslaved them. They shall no more be a prey to the nations, nor shall the beasts of the land devour them. They shall dwell securely, and none shall make them afraid. And I will provide for them renowned plantations so that they shall no more be consumed with hunger in the land, and no longer suffer the reproach of the nations. And they shall know that I am the Lord their God with them, and that they, the house of Israel, are my people, declares the Lord God. And you are my sheep, human sheep of my pasture, and I am your God, declares the Lord God.”
