A new campground in Kingsport, Tenn., lets you sleep under the stars and in the air, according to NBC 10.
You’ll do that in a hammock at Tennessee’s first hammock-only campground.
“Put a hammock in the tree, a rain fly up and that’s it. You don’t have to have tent, poles, or things like that, it’s a lot lighter-weight way to experience nature,” said Sarah Leedy, park manager at Warriors’ Path State Park in Kingsport, home to the new Cedar Ridge Hammock Campground.
“I’ve camped here twice myself and I really enjoyed it,” she said.
Leedy said hammock camping is popular right now. The campground allows up to 72 hammocks to hang under the stars at five sites all next to each other.
“We opened it to the public in April of this year, and we’ve had at least somebody in here every weekend since,” said Leedy.
