About Us

Meet The Johnsons

In August 1994 Malcolm, Barbara & Greg Johnson purchased a 14 acre tract of land in Townsend, TN with the intentions of building a family oriented campground.

This property is a level tract of land fronted by Little River and surrounded by mountain ranges. The property was part of a large farm, thus the name Big Meadow was an accurate description and adapted as the name.

Our family has camped since 1974 and found camping to be a very enjoyable and family oriented affair. We decided in 1988 to try to purchase either an existing campground or to develop our own.

Big Meadow Family Campground was opened on May 22, 1995. The park was built and continues to be operated by Malcolm, Barbara & Greg Johnson.

Our personal goals are to operate a quiet and clean campground, with courteous and friendly service.

In 2006 Big Meadow Family Campground was awarded Tennessee “Campground of the Year.” This is a coveted award presented annually to outstanding campgrounds by the Tennessee Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (TNARVC).

In 2013 we received the National Campground of the Year award presented by ARVC, the National Association or RV Parks and Campgrounds

We invite you to “Come Spend Some Quality Time With Your Family and Ours.”
