About The Wagon At Ocoee Riverside Farm – Tennessee

Glamping on the beautiful riverfront bandwagon will make one feel like going back in time. The Ocoee Riverside Farm was inspired by the history of the American pioneers in the 1800s, who used wagons for almost everything-think transporting large loads or moving families across the new world. The large riverside farm is equipped with several rustic accommodations including the three new wagons nestled close to the Ocoee River.

The bandwagon is perfectly suited for a small family with children. The interior is very spacious and comes with a comfortable king-sized bed with a set of bunks. The bandwagon is harmoniously blended with a rustic feel with luxurious amenities such as the two-door mini-fridge, air conditioner, and sleek wagon wheel table and chairs. Guests will also have a key to their own private bathroom – the brand new Ocoee Riverside Bathhouse, which is situated a few feet away. The bathhouse is kitted out with a copper pot basin, a barn door vanity, a pull chain high tank toilet, and a barn metal shower with an exhaust fan and Bluetooth speakers inside the overhead light. There is also an overhead heat lamp.

For an alfresco dining experience, guests will be able to access facilities such as the picnic table, the ring fire pit, a charcoal grill, and cookware as well.

About Benton, Tennessee

Generally, Tennessee is known for its popular towns like Franklin and Nashville (which is lauded for being the Mecca of American country music). But there are some other charming towns besides these that can keep up with the much-known southern charm, including Benton. Benton is nestled in Polk County right on the southeastern corner of Tennessee.

The county is known for its four rivers that flow through the boundaries, among which there is the Ocoee River. Ocoee has been a popular site for its whitewater events, which started back in the 1996 US Summer Olympics, and has since grabbed much attention from out-of-towners.
