For you:

To make you feel at home: Clean rooms, cabins, campsites and for your enjoyment as our guest, keep what you catch from our stocked pond! Ice, groceries, firewood, feed, hay, home rental.


For your horse:

Covered 12 x 12 box stalls with initial bedding. Water and paddocks and your horse is allowed out, if you desire, for limited time daily. Stall Cleaning Service Available. There is emergency tack for sale at The Hitching Post so if you forget your girth or break a halter, we have 'em!

Big South Fork Lodge is a privately owned camping and lodging facility bordering the Big South Fork National River Recreation Area between Jamestown & Oneida, TN.

We are open March 1st to December 31st. Ride from your campsite or barn directly into the park (no need to ride miles of private trails or trailer) and immediately begin to enjoy the hundreds of miles of horse and hiking trails leading to bluffs, overlooks, river crossings, water falls and much, much more! Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter are all great times to ride the BSF; the scenery changes with each season.

Please read company policies at the bottom of this page to plan your visit!

Cancellation During Peak Periods

No Refunds will be given for cancellations less than 30 days prior to the reservation date. We will have turned away many customers for your reservation and it will be unlikely that we can refill it.

Cancellation Policy

We highly value your business. We will do our best to accommodate you any way we can!

Making your reservation and allowing us to charge your debit/credit card or cash your check is your confirmation of accepting our terms for cancellation: Your deposit or full payment (if required), guarantees your reservation.

It also means that we will refuse other bookings, so if you do not take advantage of your reservation, we lose income.

Cancellation of reservations within 2 weeks of arrival date will be charged a $30.00 cancellation fee. Credits will be processed with 24 hours of cancellation. If you cancel and we cannot re-rent, you lose your deposit.

No refunds for early departure for any reason, however, if the weather turns nasty during your visit, we understand your disappointment at not being able to ride and may consider application of your remaining charges towards a visit within the next year or offer you rain days for your next visit.
