Ballyhoo Family Campground

256 Werthwyle Drive

Ballyhoo Family Campground, located just outside Crossville, Tennessee, can be described as a place where relaxing just happens!  Owners and hosts Stanley and Doris Watkins invite you to visit the Cumberland Plateau where beauty and countless activities await for your enjoyment.

The Watkins are lifelong Crossville residents, with a love for the area and also, the campground. Ballyhoo Family Campground offers camping in a quiet country setting with no traffic noise. The campsites themselves are nestled among shade trees in between an open field where families can enjoy a game of frisbee, and a beautiful pond for fishing. Wildlife viewing is an everyday event at Ballyhoo Family Campground, where you will likely see deer grazing in the morning and even.

Come join us! You just can’t help but to sit back and relax.

We stayed at Ballyhoo for 2months while we looked for a house and heartily recommend it. The owners are very nice and go out of their way to be helpful. The park is in a beautiful setting with all amenities and only a short drive to town.

We are full time RVers and this is the worst campground we have ever stayed at. The place is pretty but the owners are awful to deal with. The playground is old and not in good shape. When we were in town all the other campgrounds in the area were booked and this place had maybe 5 campers in the whole place, which should have been our first clue. We paid to stay a month and left after 1 week with no refund because we couldn’t stand it. There are cameras everywhere. We honestly couldn’t do anything without the owners watching our every move. I would not ever stay here again and do not recommend it to anyone.

We stayed for a week and really enjoyed it. It’s secluded enough to be peaceful yet close enough to get to town within minutes. The owners are personable and friendly. Dave & Elaine from Bethel Island California.

We have travelled quite abit in 11 months. Ballyhoo is one of the rare fines. It is truly a very peaceful, clean, and the friendless camp we've been to. Best place ever to get away from noise. Owners and staff are wonderful people. If we have to rate this place from 1 to 5 it is definitely 5 plus..
