Directions

CAMP BAYS MOUNTAIN is located only five minutes from downtown Kingsport. If using a GPS do not confuse our camp with Bays Mountain Park and Planetarium. Enter "Camp Bays Mountain" into your GPS. If you arrive at an entrance station and are asked to pay an entrance fee, you are at Bays Mountain Park and went to the wrong place. The landmark for finding our camp is to turn onto Hood Road off Reservoir Road at Depews Chapel United Methodist Church.
