Start learning the words to "Chattanooga Choo Choo". The Choo Choo Rally is set for May 18 -21, 2020.
Chattanooga is a great tourist destination. You will sleep on a battlefield! In Nov. 1863 the city's major RR center fell to the North. Chickamauga Battlefield is a short distance from the RV park. We are also known as the Scenic City. It is nestled on the Tennessee River surrounded by mountains. The world famous Incline RR, Lookout Mountain Battlefield Visitor Center, Rock City with spectacular views of the city and a view of seven states on a clear day to name a few. We also have a world class aquarium, art museum, and miles of beautiful paved bike trails along the river. You may consider a ride on a WWII "duck" and then pig out on Little Debbie's Moon Pies, since they are made near Chattanooga.
