Rose Creek Campground & Cabins

Enjoy the peaceful, quiet relaxation that awaits you…

This place was great. The owners are really nice, the pool is nice, the rock mine is right across the fence from the campground (different owners). The campground provides the fishing poles and bait and have nice sized trout in the fishing pond to catch. Reasonably priced as well. If I ever get back through this area, this will be a revisit.

I stayed in the Foxfire cabin one night while passing through the area for work. Normally I would pitch my tent, but rain was expected in the area. I called ahead to check on a cabin and the staff member was MORE than helpful. She asked if I needed bed linens, towels, coffee for the coffee maker… etc. I arrived after hours and she was so nice to put my receipt on the bed along with the other items she promised. This was a wonderful experience. Thank you Rose Creek Camp for your true hospitality!

My family and I went to Rose Creek Campgrounds and stayed for a week and went mining at Rose Creek Mine everyday. Its non-expensive and its and awesome experience. The third day I went, I found a 773 karat emerald with no matrix. It was amazing. I recommend going to this mine if you EVER have the chance!

  1. We took our son to Rose Creek for some trout fishing. We were assisted by the very friendly & patient Steve (and his dog Samson) and he could not have been more helpful. Adam was able to catch two rainbow trout and he was beyond thrilled. Steve was the only person we dealt with, but if he is representative of the entire staff then Rose Creek has a top notch staff. Steve gave Adam some fishing tips and also cleaned the fish for us. Steve helped our son have an experience he will never forget. Thank you Steve (and Samson) for your gracious hospitality. Next time we are in Franklin we are definitely going back.

    If you want a nice laidback camping experience, by all means give Rose Creek Campgrounds a try. We stayed 3 nights in the Phoenix Cabin, caught 2 rainbow trout, and mined at the Rose Creek Gem Mine just next door. Vicky, Betty, and Steve were extremely helpful and we will always remember our 3 days spent there. Thanks to all who made our short stay a memorable one.

    We had a truly amazing experience! We were three families, in 2 RV’s and a cabin, with 11 children and 6 adults! The campground was everything that a family could look for when “unplugging” from the world of technology! The kids had such a blast ridding their bikes down the hills! The gem mine was such a kick back to the old days! The children loved getting muddy and wet and finding hidden treasures! We went several times over the course of our stay! But, the biggest draw was the fishing pond! They spent several hours and caught 9 BIG fish! It was so beautiful to watch their faces as the reeled them in! Victoria cleaned them and we ate them for dinner…mmmmmm good! The staff was exceptional! They were so very gracious and friendly. Always smiling and making you feel like family! We will definitely return here! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

  4. We stayed in the Yurt and we had a great time! The yurt was surprisingly spacious for all 13 of us……we also had a tent for sleeping space. It was a perfect “camping” trip for us. The yurt was clean and just right for our needs. Thanks for a great economical place to spend our time together and make memories.

    Blessings,
    Meg and Roy Leake

    I enjoyed a very peacefull night at the campground while visiting the Franklin gem shows. It was great to find a place with very few pesky bugs so that I could enjoy sitting out in the cool evenings.

    We enjoyed our stay at Rose Creek Campground, It was clean, quiet and the staff were very friendly. We enjoyed the pool and liked that the Rose Creek Mine was so close. We found the camp ground to be a central location to enjoy the many activities we did in and around Franklin. Thank you.

    Wow! what a great place to stay. The staff was so helpful we will be back next year rain or shine. Well, lets hope for the shine next year. Really enjoying walking to the gem mine from our site. Seems like the whole town was there just for us everywhere we visited was awesome. See you next summer.
