We never knew this park was so close to home (Knoxville) and is mainly flat, good highway into except for the road to the park about 5 miles curvy, but easy road. The park was beautiful, there are so many waterfalls here, continuous beautiful nature scenery. We had some trouble with electricity shutting down a couple times, but the maintenance people fixed within 30 minutes of our arrival. Everyone helpful, friendly. The rangers were taking extra time to clean up trash, which I cannot believe someone would just leave a cup or can sitting somewhere when there are trash cans readily available. Most of the sites are small, but we were lucky to get a larger site. The ranger said they are redoing some sites and electrical work over the winter. Want to come back next year. There is an excellent restaurant nearby Foglight Foodhouse, gourmet out in the middle of nowhere. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Didn't have any trouble going in on the roads, but you should unhook your toad as soon as you get in. Easy night check-in cause there is none, just pick your spot and pay by 10am the next morning. Back-in site was smallish, but OK. The water spigot {older) was broken (hose connector gone) at our site, but it was the only one damaged near us. The electric was OK, but don't overload it. The bathhouse was fine, somewhat dated but usable. Showers were just OK as water pressure was low, but pretty clean. Separate changing area at shower. Playground and pavilion behind it. Make this a stop in TN, the park and waterfalls are beautiful. It is in a quiet country setting and very quiet. We will be back to stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Rock Island was beautiful. The staff was very helpful, and the programs were great. The campground sites are small, but they are well shaded. Be careful not to run too many electric items. The electric lines are old and can't handle several electric items running at the same time. The canoe trip up the Caney River is a must. The gorge area was beautiful. The naturalist were very informative and helpful. I would recommend going off the trails and seeing the smaller waterfalls off the bluff and the beautiful ferns. We would definitely return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
