We have camped here many times and have learned which campsites work best for us in a motorhome. As in most campgrounds, not all sites are equal. We love to come here and had a great stay this time. Price has doubled since last year, but it's still a good value. No wi fi and TV is limited but seems to be better than it used to be. Half of the campground used to be first come, first served, but that is no longer true. If you don't have a reservation, you can only book your site from day to day in the event that the site has been reserved. It does cost $10 to make a reservation, and $10 to make any changes. Sites down around the lake are not as level as some of the others. The hum from the water plant doesn't bother us. We have had a variety of hosts through the years; this one was super nice. We will be back, I'm sure, since our kids live near here.

A great park, but highway construction makes it a bit challenging getting in and out unless you know the area. Some exits and entrances are closed. I would urge anyone coming from I-45 to call the office for the best directions. Staff was just great and so helpful. McCleskey is a small, not well marked one block street off the service road. If you miss it, you have to go a long way through some challenging roads because of construction. Everything paved, level, immaculate with good wifi (lots of towers around campground) and great cable. Easy propane fill for motorhomes. Just a block off highway, but noise was not a problem. Our campsite was a little close to our neighbor - awning almost touched his slide, and his sewer was right in our face as we exited our door, but many of the sites were more spacious. No grills or picnic tables. Nice community room with library, comfortable chairs, flat screen TV, Keurig coffeemaker available at all times. Good exercise room.

Great park for visiting Chattanooga. The park itself is on a Civil War battlefield, and the area has a lot of history to tour. As others have stated, watch out for the GPS directions. I always ask when I call for a reservation and was warned to not turn in at the mobile home park. Evidently there are two sections, an older one with lots of long term stays, and a newer one for overnighters. This is where the 50 amp and cable sites are. But you have the option of being in sites without these amenities at a lower price. Good gravel sites with good drainage. These sites are long and spacious, plenty of room for toad to be hooked up on site. Bathhouse was outstanding. Hookups all good. Did not use laundry, but judging from the bathrooms and pool, I suspect it was very nice. No on-site trash--haul to the dumpster yourself. Our Wi-Fi was excellent, but we were close to the bathhouse, and the antenna was on top of it. Cable was excellent--86 channels; staff told us that the cable company switched to all digital, and they had to upgrade their equipment in the office, which was very expensive, but it was very good. Staff was very helpful, even ran off some maps for me when we wanted to take some side trips on back roads. We definitely would stay here again.

Excellent park for overnight with level concrete sites; good hook ups with good wi fi and cable. Right off interstate but no noise--country quiet, except there is some construction across the street from the park; because of the heat, they got an early start. Did not bother us at all. Not much shade but lots of grass between sites. Super nice restrooms, showers, and laundry. On site trash pick up in a.m. Easy fill for propane for motorhomes. Great staff. Have stayed here several times and will do so again when in the area.

Very nice park with long, level concrete pads--plenty of room to hook up toad the night before leaving. Not all sites have close view of river, but it is neat to watch the barges up and down the Mississippi. Very little shade. Morning on site trash pick up. We had very good wi fi, but the park was not very crowded. Very nice bathrooms, showers, and laundry. Staff helpful with tips about restaurants, etc. Their cable is not really cable, and the lady at the desk told us we would probably do better with our antenna, which is what we did. Park is part of the riverwalk system of Vidalia; we felt very safe, as the local law enforcement made the rounds of the riverwalk area almost hourly. If you want to use GPS, always, always ask when you call. Their GPS address is not what's posted in Trailer Life as their physical address. It is on MLK Drive, not Riverview Dr. as listed. Mosquitos were horrible, making walking in the evening all but impossible, but that's to be expected in Louisiana. Would definitely stay here again.

Use Marian MS, not Meridian for GPS settings--it's always better to ask. Park was ok for an overnight stop with long concrete sites but very narrow, not much sitting room; very close to neighbor. Office is only open 7:30 to 9 in mornings and 4:30 to 6:30 evenings, so take your telephone when you go to try to register. Sites are in 3 rows A, B. and C, with the numbers the same on each row. At the office, you can' see the A, B. or C, so you don't really know which way to go. You have to call the owner, and he tells you what site you are on, but you still can't see the A, B, or C. Restrooms and laundry very nice. No trash pick up; you take it to dumpster. Our issue with this park was with the electrical power. We had a 50 amp hook up, and we carefully watch what we are running according to a chart we were given at another campground. We had one air conditioner running, the TV, refrigerator, and microwave. When I turned on the water heater, we blew the outside breaker. According to our chart, we were not using more than 45 amps. In a month long trip in our coach, we never blew a breaker at any other campground. When we tested the power, using our meter, it registered at 115 volts or a little less, rather than 120. We kept the water heater off until we finished dinner, but didn't think the power was adequate. We probably would stay here again if we needed an overnight.

Great park--immaculately clean, level concrete sites, beautiful restrooms and showers, good W-Fi (except when everybody tried to get on at once), on site trash pick up; as others have stated campers have access to indoor pool and fitness center at hotel across street. Campground has a nice outdoor pool and splash pool for kids. Trolley stop at campground--a big plus in Pigeon Forge traffic. Laundry is nice and clean but has only 2 washers and 2 dryers, which is not enough for a campground this size. So if someone has already claimed them, you may have a long wait. Back-in sites on creek very nice, but since some of those flooded during a torrential downpour, we opted for a pull-through. Pull-throughs are a bit short--cannot hook your toad up ahead of time when leaving. When we checked in, we had 84 cable channels. Suddenly, without warning, we were down to 26 and had to re program our remote. It seems the cable company was switching to digital; the campground claimed that they would have to issue every camper a cable box, so they switched to Dish. We found out at another campground that the other choice was to upgrade the equipment at the office (which is what I suspected), and that was very expensive. I did feel that they should have warned guests; instead people were trying to find out what had happened. I realize they were under no obligation to furnish all those channels, but it was nice while it lasted. In all a great place, and we would definitely stay here again.

Great campground--long, level concrete sites with nice grass and shrubbery. Very clean and attractive and room between sites. Wi fi ok but slow at times when everyone got on. Good hook ups and cable. Good laundry. On site trash pick up. Cafe on grounds. KOA furnished hot dogs and bar be que one day for lunch. I called for a reservation on Saturday and was told that there were only 2 sites available for that night, both back in, but we booked it because the other place where we normally stay was full. When we got there, the young man on duty put us on a lovely pull through, and there were empty sites around. It seems that it all depends on who you talk to. We stayed 4 nights and had a great time. This will be our campground of choice when we come to Nashville.

This park is one of our favorites and is truly a 10 10 10, as Good Sam has rated it. Yes, the grass was a little high in places, but it rained buckets while we were there, making mowing a bit difficult. Wi fi and cable are excellent, pool and exercise room are great, room for kids to play video games; yes two washers were out of order as previous posts have mentioned, but I suspect they were fixed soon. We had to move out of our beautiful waterfront site into a pull through. We were surprised that the pull through with no shade or scenery cost more. Be sure to reserve a waterfront site ahead of time as they go fast. Country quiet but only minutes from the main drag of Hot Springs. Caution: Do not let your GPS direct you to this park. We were warned about this by office staff. It will take you places where you do not want to take an RV. Get directions from staff or use Trailer Life Directory. We have been here several times and plan to come back. Rental cabins are very nice, according to what people told us--did not personally see them. Staff was extremely pleasant and accommodating.

Enjoyed this park, but it's kind of a chore to get there. Road construction has had West Memphis torn up for years. Road into park made us a bit wary until we got on into the park. Long concrete sites and good room between sites. Gravel roads. Park is divided into 3 different areas--one for long term stays, one for 5th wheels, and one for motorhomes--this is so that you have the best view of the river. We pulled our motorhome right into a site facing the river where we had a bird's eye view of barges coming down the river. 5th wheels are back ins so that they have the view outside their windows. Wi fi was spotty. Laundry was free but we didn't use it. Restrooms in our area were in a little cabin where you had to climb stairs--not good for handicapped; ditto the office; don't know how this complies with ADA requirements, but they would probably make some accommodations if needed--staff was very nice. Would stay here again.

Quiet rustic little park off the beaten path, but we had a few issues. When I called for a reservation, I asked for a level site. The lady told me she had a back in on the creek, but we might need a board or two to level or the kitchen site was available; she said it was very level, so I booked it. When we arrived, we saw that the sites were not quite as nice as they appeared on the web site. The road was a narrow two lane only, so backing in is a little difficult if there is an RV right opposite you. We were on the upper creek level, which turned out to be fortunate, but backing in was a challenge up a hill with a large pile of stones on the left (probably filling in a hole) and the concrete patio on the right, which as often happens when you have a gravel site and concrete patio, was several inches higher than the site. Sites were very narrow, so care had to be taken not to scrape tires on the patio. Ours was more difficult because there was a large chunk of concrete missing from the patio, leaving a rough edge which will eat a tire up (been there, done that!). When we finally got in, in order to be perfectly level, our front wheels were off the ground. So we opted to lower the wheels and be "pretty level". There was a terrible storm that night--over 5 inches of rain. The TV from Knoxville was saying take cover, but there was no bathhouse or laundry to run to. The forecast was for large hail, so we pulled our slides in. The campers on the lower creek sites along Walden Creek had to evacuate during the night at 3 a.m. because the water was rising up to their steps. The next morning we could see through the trees that the houses on the other side of the creek were built up on stilts just like at the beach. We enjoyed our stay once we got settled, but probably would not stay here again because of the sites and the lack of bad weather shelters.

We decided to give this park a try, since Good Sam had rated it as a 10-10-10. Park was very attractive as we entered--cute water slide area for kids, nice beach and swim area. Office was very nice, and the young lady there was super nice. She told us to go find a spot we liked and come back to register. When I asked her about the Wi-Fi, she hesitated and said it wasn't very good around the cabin area. As we went up the hill to the campground, we realized that there was very few level sites. The pull through sites were very long, but terribly unlevel--motorhomes had their front wheel jacked up off the ground. We tried a couple, couldn't get anywhere close to level. When we got out in the tall grass, we found two with missing sewer caps and filth up at the top of the pipe. One row along the edge close to the lake was level, though very short--not long enough for your toad, but you could park it on the patio. Again we got out and looked for the sewer connection, scraping through the grass, but we couldn't find a sewer. There were no maintenance people anywhere in sight. We finally left and will not be back.

This is a lovely campground, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We wished we had paid more and taken a waterfront site and will the next time we come. Not all sites in the Tall Timbers area are level, so you need to look around. We had two issues that kept us from rating the park a 10. One was the garbage dumpster--only one area for the entire park, and it was down by the office and not at all convenient when leaving the park. It was attractively screened, and I'm sure it was for appearances. Most KOAs we've stayed in have had on site pick up, and there seemed to be lots of people riding around on golf carts who could have picked up trash. Another was the TV cable/satellite. We have two non digital TVs with converter boxes which have worked with the cable in every resort/campground where we have stayed. Not at this one. The Workkamper who came promptly to help us when we called the office said that their system was screwy, and we would have to use their box, which he brought, but since our TV was built into the wall, he couldn't get into it to plug in without taking all our wiring apart. We felt this was not in keeping with the otherwise flawless operation of this park. We definitely will come back here, but after 4 days in the national forest, we were ready for some good TV. Had no problems with ants as others mentioned. With the palm trees and huge lake, you do feel as if you are down on the gulf.

Price is with Good Sam discount. We prefer this older, well-kept park when traveling through Wichita Falls. Park has very long, level, shady gravel sites--no need to unhook. Roads are paved and probably could use a little repair, but they are fine to drive on--no big holes, etc. Cute doggy park area. Pool and everything else was immaculately clean. When we checked in, the young lady at the desk told us that the Tengo Internet was not very good, but it worked just fine for us. Excellent cable TV with nearly 100 channels. Little lake on grounds has walking area around, but there is not much for children to do--mostly a senior citizens park. A permanent resident area is at the back of the park; it also is clean and neat. This is our pick of the parks in Witchita Falls. We will stay here again.

This park does not fit my definition of a resort. After we drove in, we saw that the entire park was a mud hole with deep ruts where people had been stuck. Sites had gravel on them, but the roads were just red dirt. The office looked dark, but I went up there. The owner was sitting in the dark in what didn't look like a very inviting office--chairs stacked around, etc. We paid the Good Sam rate, and the owner told me that the Internet probably wouldn't work, and he was right. When we arrived, there were only two sites available, but we found one that was level. We prayed that it wouldn't rain during the night, and the owner showed us on the map of the campground how to pull around and get back on the highway without getting stuck. He was very nice and helpful. As others have mentioned, the water connection is down on the ground, making it necessary to get on your knees to connect. We do not plan to come back.
