The Christmas Spirit Is Alive!

We have embarked on our favorite time of year! Our decorations are up, stockings are hung with care and our hearts are filled with Christmas Cheer!

While we wait for our architect to finish his initial renderings, all we can do is get excited for Christmas, clean things up around the property, and work to prepare for a hopeful groundbreaking in January. This week we began working on trees and ditches while the weather was beautiful! We also were able to participate in the Tellico Plains Candlelight Walk and enjoy our first snow of the season.

Merry Christmas from Mecca Camp Resort

As we have started to become part of Tellico Plains, our desire is to give back to the community that has welcomed us with open arms! As such, we are excited to provide 20 Christmas Dinners to needy families in the area. The dinners will feed a family of four (4) and include a ham, mashed potatoes, green beans, dessert, and rolls to any family in Tellico Plains that might need a nice holiday meal! If you are interested or know of a family who could benefit from a warm family meal this holiday season, please contact us at 423-253-3513 or email

Get Your Back Into It!

As I mentioned, the weather has been absolutely beautiful for the month of December in East Tennessee, so we made sure to take advantage of it. We spent the week cleaning up trees on the property, weed whipped ditches and did a winter seeding and overlay of hay for my parents house on the property. We are really close to moving my parents into their new house! We are waiting on the last piece, which is to have electricity connected to the property.

Tellico Plains Candlelight Walk

As is tradition in Tellico Plains, the Christmas season is kicked off by the annual Candlelight Walk! The event took place on Saturday and was truly a Hallmark Christmas Event in the Tennessee Mountains. Every downtown business participated, the weather was perfect, the music was great and the town was as busy as ever! Some of the local businesses even had snowmaking machines! The Tellico Merchants Association worked hard to come together and host a wonderful event for the town in a remarkable fashion.


May your holidays be filled with warmth and family love! The door is always open here at Mecca Camp Resort and we can't wait for you to stay with us! From our family to yours, May God Bless You This Holiday Season!
