Hampton is a small town in the northeastern mountain region of the state, near the towns of Bristol and Elizabethton, and near the North Carolina border. It's located just 5.5 miles from the Pond Mountain Wilderness Area, and Watauga Lake, making it a perfect retreat for those looking to "get away from it all." The terrain in the Pond Mountain Wilderness Area is steep and rugged, with seven major streams and several cascading waterfalls. Spectacular Laurel Fork Gorge stands 100 to 200 feet above Laurel Fork Creek, and the Appalachian Trail crosses the area for about 6.5 miles. There are also several other hiking trails through the area. The tiny town of Hampton is surrounded by the Cherokee National Forest, just a few miles from Watauga Lake. This lake is one of the most scenic in the Tennessee River Watershed, and is the highest lake in the Tennessee River system, with an elevation of 1900 feet above sea level. Hiking, primitive camping, fishing and hunting are the main activities in the area around Hampton, and it's also one of best areas for a scenic drive. State Highways 67 and 321 follow the shoreline of Watauga Lake and provide views of the lake and surrounding forest, passing through peaceful farmlands and other rural communities.
