We were a little skeptical at first due to other posters commenting on the mud/lack of gravel on the sites. That is true; there was rain during our stay, but our site was not affected by the downpours; although other sites were. A lot of mud where tire tracks have rolled over it again and again. Staff was very friendly; a beautiful park to stay in overall. Has gorgeous views of Lookout Mountain, TN. If you are coming here for more than the camping, (caves and 'gift shop'), then that part may disappoint you. Some of the sites are very close together: the sewer hookup for the site next to us, was actually on our site. Despite some of the negatives, we would definitely stay here again.
If you are ever in the Chattanooga area stay at Chester Frost. You don't find much online about this park, because the locals want to keep it their secret. This is one of the best campgrounds in the country to camp. Has beautiful views of Nickajack lake; even if you don't get a water site, (high demand and hard to come by,) you will still have a nice view of the lake from the majority of sites. All sites are concrete, with gravel under picnic tables, and grass on a lot of sites; but not all have grass, depends on what part of the campground you stay in. Very clean and private showerhouses. Each shower is a separate room with a bolt locking door. Staff are very friendly. I would have given this campground a '10' if they had sewer hookups. Camped here for several years in a pop-up camper, and more recently:
My husband and I were here earlier this month. We were very, very disappointed in this 'campground.' The sites are closer together than any we have ever seen, and all gravel, with no blade of grass in sight.(Ironically, there is a sign that states, "keep off the grass", we wondered if the sign was posted as a joke.) Has short concrete pads; not big enough for most motorhomes or fifth wheels, and very unlevel. Some sites do not have concrete pads. The back row of campsites is so close to the interstate you could stick your arm out and smack a passing car. We could hardly believe this was a KOA. One of the employees driving around in a golfcart was very unfriendly as well. We would never camp here again, as there are other much much better campgrounds in this area.
