Enjoyed this park. Dawn and Kevin went out of their way to make everyone feel at home. They fixed a pancake breakfast on Sunday and on Sunday evening they had a hot dog supper. They have horseshoes and miniature golf. Spaces were a little close but they have plans to enlarge some of the sites and add some more 50 amp sites.
Great weekend. The park was clean and very friendly. Two groups were meeting there and with the size, and location of the groups, things went very well. Location is easy to get to and the things that you can do around Chattanooga, you are only limited by time. I highly recommed this CG. The site are a little close but not enough to cause any problem.
If you are a hiker, mountain biker or a horseback rider this is the place to be. There are trails everywhere. The swimming pools is clean and cool. Some site are a little tight to get into. We had no trouble with a 38'MH. The grounds are clean and the rangers are very helpful. On some evenings, the park naturalist give lectures that are both informative and interesting. Looking forward to our next visit.
This a good campground to stay in while visiting Nashville. There are tours that can be taken from the CG, tickets for other attractions are also available. Campground maybe a little small but access to the sites is very easy (37' MH). Bathhouse has some age on it but is really clean (everything worked well). This won't be our last trip here. I suggest making a 5 minute walk to the "Cock of the Walk" if you really enjoy catfish. Camping World is also next door.
The campground is well maintained. Owners and the staff are friendly and helpful. We had a little trouble with the Wi-fi but, they got it up and running quickly. There is even a workout room, with the basics. However, I would recommend using the walkway in Townsend. It goes the full length of the town. River use is just across the street (tubing and fishing). There are so many things that you are close to from this campground. Security is good and we had a great feeling here.
Location is next to the Cosby campground in the Smokey Mountain National Park (that is good). Everything else is not good. Bathhouse was dirty and partially operational. Some folks hanging around (maybe workers) gave us the creeps. The site we camped on was easily accessed but most difficult to exit. Grounds needed tending. Even though we did not use it, the pool looked decent. We do not expect to ever come back here.
Noisy and crowded. Sites were tightly placed. This would be an easy place to stop while traveling I-75. Camping World and Shipps RV are attached. We purchased an RV at Shipps so the site was free. This campground is on the state lines of Tennessee and Georgia.
Well maintained, friendly staff. The grounds are big rig friendly. Biggest drawback camping there is that they don't have enough 50 amp and sewer hook-up sites. However, the beauty and quietness more than make up for the shortcomings. There is a marina with restaurant that is connected to the grounds and well worth visiting. A quiet cove has a swimming area that is roped from the lake. There is a hiker trail trail (tough) that goes to an overlook above Cordell Hull Dam.
We took a 32' Motorhome and found a couple of sites we could use. However, they recommend no more than 25'. This park has hiking trails that are beautiful and a nice pool, within walking distance. The park people are very helpful.
We camped in the newly redone part of the campground. Most sites are easily accessable with a 37 motorhome but some are nearly impossible. The sites were paved with a charcoal grill and picnic table. The handicapped sites were paved and concrete under the table and grill. The large recreation area has playground for children and plenty of room for most anything that a family would want. Deer were everywhere. The park personel were great. Also, reservations can be made for this new section. Use the Tennessee State Parks website and call in the reservation.
