Can anyone tell me a good place to do some boondocking in our hybrid around the Chattanooga area?

There are a couple of good spots up on the Lookout Mountain... CLOUDLAND Canyon State Park near Trenton GA exit on I59 and also DESOTO STATE PARK at the Ft Payne, AL exit on I59.

Both places have nice large CANYONS on-site and do have real nice out of the way primitive camp sites. Both places also have nice camp sites with hookups as well... Just a note: This is a bad time for camping in ALABAMA right now as there is a state wide OPEN FIRE BAN in effect now...

State parks will not allow boondocking. Their backcountry sites are not accessible by road.

Probably the Cherokee National Forest is your best bet. Go to their website and check out their rules on dispersed camping.

The policy for boondocking (dispersed camping) for the Cherokee Nation Forest is unless marked "no camping" you must be 300 feet from a paved road and completely out of the line of traffic.

For more specific information, stop at the Ranger Office on Hwy 64 east of Parksville, TN. Buy a map and ask for suggestion on where to go. There are a lot of gravel roads in the area with a number of places you can haul you camper in.

Google electric co lakes and parks, in NGa. There are several and they are great for what you want.
