I typically patronize only state parks, but decided to try this KOA based on location to an event I was attending in Chattanooga. I'm glad I did. The staff here is working very hard to make this a pleasant place and they are succeeding. The showers and restrooms, pool area and entire grounds are spotless. Yes, it's an old facility (I utilized a Kamping Kabin in 1984!!) but it's quiet, convenient to Chattanooga and Lookout Mountain and is a very comfortable place to camp.

I have never stayed at or even visited this RV park, but my family attends a church 1/2 mile down the hill (oh, and the park is adjacent to I-85, not 3 miles away.) Last week my wife was doing some benevolence work, distributing meals to needy children housed in "extended stay" hotels in the area as well as the Jones RV Park. She came back with some sobering stories from the permanent residence section of this campground. Sadly, many of these impoverished people have turned to prostitution and drug abuse. She did say that the permanent and RV sections of the park are somewhat separate. I thought this insight might be helpful to those of you traveling through the area. I wouldn't choose to spend the night here.

This is another gem in the Georgia state park system. The camp sites are on a loop and are large and fairly shady. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. The small lake is ideal for canoeing or fishing. The kids enjoyed the lake, the playground, and riding their bikes. It's a very pleasant place to take a walk to the self-guided, free freshwater fish aquarium adjacent to the campground (there are even alligators in the pond.) There are trails through the woods that surround the park. The only downside is that the train makes its presence known with a horn about 2:00 a.m. We've been here three or four times attending the local running club's race (held on the trails the second Saturday in November) and have utilized both the well-equipped cabins and our tent.
