Chickasaw National Recreation Area

Cold Springs Campground is within close proximity to Travertine Creek, which offers spring-fed waterfalls and popular swimming areas. Easy to moderate hiking trails are also nearby.


The most popular attraction for campers at Cold Springs is Bear Falls, which is just across the road from the campground. Bear Falls is a favorite swimming area for visitors on hot days. Little Niagara is another lively location for swimming, as well as picnicking, and is roughly a ten-minute walk from the campground.

Cold Springs is a convenient tent-only campground for families and small gatherings of friends. The two non-electric group sites are best for tent camping, though small RVs and pop-up campers (less than 20') may fit. There is one modern restroom facility with flush toilets and sinks provided in the campground.
