This is a large, well-run park with a fair number of seasonal guests, and some permanent mobile homes. Roadways are paved and quite wide. Sites are level gravel with tables and concrete patios. Fire rings are only available at the sites along the river. WiFi worked very well for us, cable is analog, with limited stations. Showers/bathrooms were so clean and modern they looked like they were built yesterday. Access is easy from the highway...Pigeon Forge attractions are about 30 minutes away, but if you've been to this area before you know what traffic can be like.

This is an excellent park, especially for boaters. Dock space, a ramp, a marina, fuel and boat rentals are available. Many sites have a view of the lake, but none seem to be lake side. Sites are level and of adequate size. WiFi was strong but we had intermittent connection with the web. This may have been related to the high winds during our stay. Cable TV is okay but with limited stations. It looked like satellite access would be available from most sites. Bath houses have multi individual fully equipped bathrooms which are well-maintained. We would definitely stay here again.

We stopped here for a quick overnight. This is a decent park, close to the interstate but reasonably quiet. I was most impressed with the size of the sites. Ours was long enough to accommodate two of the longest rigs imaginable. Restrooms are clean and adequate. There's a small truck stop/convenience store on the way in so fuel is very available.

This is a surprisingly nice park even though most RVers here are permanent or seasonal residents. Roadways are paved but a bit narrow. Sites are reasonably level sand, with concrete patios. Water, sewer, and electric worked fine, wifi is weak and there is no cable, although the Orlando over-the-air stations come in reasonably well. Among the seasonal/permanent sites are a number of small permanent structures as well as built-in and landscaped trailers, all well-maintained. The people we met were friendly and helpful.

This is an older but well-managed and cared for RV Park. Some sites have concrete pads and others are gravel. Most seem reasonably level. Spaces are fairly close together, but not too bad. Restrooms are old, but serviceable and clean. Staff was very accommodating when my wife and I had to be hospitalized for a few days and we needed to extend our stay at the park. They managed to keep us on our site even though they were booked solid.

While at this park I was planning to give it a much higher rating, then we were ready to leave. Apparently we were lucky when we entered, because we had no problem with the roadways or trees. Just the opposite on departure. VERY narrow, twisty roadways with almost impossible turns for our 32 ft. fiver. Many palmettos scraped, and several near-misses with trees. And that's too bad, because otherwise this is a wonderful beach-front campground, especially for a city-county park. I don't usually base my ratings on a single park feature, but these roadways are exceptional. If you are using a big rig, forewarned is forearmed.

This is a surprisingly nice campground in a county park. Friendly, helpful staff, level sites, and heavily wooded with well-maintained trees and roadways. Cable was OK, wifi was marginal, but they promise repairs soon for wifi issues caused by last year's hurricane. We would definitely stay here again when in the area.

This is a gem of a little campground located in a huge county park. We've stayed here before and the place never disappoints. The overall Tanglewood Park offers more amenities than can be mentioned here, including two 18 hole golf courses and an equestrian center. The 44 site RV park is nestled in a quiet grove of trees. Bathhouse is modern and spotless. Roads and sites are paved, but some sites are not at all level. Water, sewer, 50amp and cable hookups worked fine. WiFi availability varies with your location in the park. The issue with some unlevel sites and the weak WiFi are the only reason I don't rate this park 10.

This is a very nice campground in a picturesque valley about 10 miles from the crowds of Pigeon Forge. Clubhouse-style bathhouse is spotless and modern. Very good laundry facilities, exercise equipment and an apparently nice pool which was closed for the season. Roadways are wide, some are paved and some are smooth gravel--same for the sites, which are wide and long. There are a variety of prices because of the variety of sites. One BIG WARNING, which has been mentioned in other reviews (which we ignored). Do not bring a big rig to this park from the Townsend side. The road is very narrow with very steep and sharp switchbacks. In fact, on our way in we saw police assisting a fifth-wheeler who had slipped off the pavement on the way out. No injuries and I didn't see much damage, but a tow truck was needed to get the trailer back on the road. No problem coming in from the Pigeon Forge side. Also, I'd suggest reserving by phone rather than their online res service. We booked on line for a mountain view gravel site and on arrival the system had put us in the group camp kitchen. The friendly manager switched us to site 35, and when we got there found it occupied. He then told us to go to site 31, which was fine.

This is a nice park which is 2 blocks south of the Georgia/Tennessee line. They use the TN address because they own a trailer park just north of the line and the TN directions are safer for large rigs. Lots of directional signs, so there's no problem finding the place. Restrooms and showers are spotless, sites are reasonably level gravel with concrete patios. Roadways and sites are a bit narrow and the sites are a bit close together. Be warned, if you have a big class A the narrow roadways can cause problems. Someone clipped and removed a mirror from the class A parked in the site next to us. The mirror was just inside the site, but very close to the roadway. The class A also had its awning extended which would have made it near impossible for me to turn my 5th wheel onto the roadway without performing an awningectomy. Fortunately, the site directly across from us was vacant so I was able to exit through there.

This is a lovely deep-woods campground in an Army Corps of Engineers park. Sites are well-spread out and the trees make for decent privacy. The $11 rate is based on the senior discount. The regular rate is $22/night. The roadways leading to and inside the park are winding and hilly, but manageable. The sites have close to level, wide concrete pads, fire rings and picnic tables on the patios. Sites are spacious enough to fit your tow/towed vehicles. This isn't close to town, but grocery shopping is about 15 minutes away. No sewer connections at the sites, but there is a convenient dump station. 50 amp worked well, water pressure seemed a bit low, but usable. Off-air TV provided limited stations but with a strong digital signal. Your satellite will only work in certain sites due to the think foliage overhead. Strong Verizon cell and 4G service. The restrooms and showers are modern and clean.

This was our second visit here so we didn't panic when we approached the park and saw the abandoned industrial buildings nearby. The approach can be a bit off-putting, as can the fact that some GPS units have trouble with the address, but once you overcome the challenge of getting here you will be pleasantly surprised. This is a wonderful waterfront campground. Roadways are wide, gravel spaces are a bit narrow but most are separated by nice landscaping, so privacy isn't an issue. Good water pressure, good 50amp power, decent wifi and adequate cable. There is a wide range of site types ranging from full-hookup basic to country-club luxurious. There's a decent restaurant/bar on the property, a nice pool, a marina, boat rentals and terrific and helpful staff. The only real downside is that the park isn't near the French Quarter, but there is reasonably-priced shuttle service to and from the fun. Rates are high, but this is New Orleans.

This place could be decent with a bit of effort by management. It is partly a trailer park, but the RV sites have great potential. Concrete and gravel pads are the longest and widest I've seen, and our site was perfectly level. Digital cable TV was quite good. Water, sewer and 50 amp hookups worked fine. The bathrooms and showers looked like they get cleaned maybe once a month. No toilet paper for the first few days and never any paper towels. Also, no hot water in the bathroom. Staffing is minimal and doesn't seem to do too much. Natchez is an interesting place to visit and it deserves a better RV park.

This is a lovely campground on the outskirts of Jackson. Sites are well-spaced with concrete pads. Most are under tall pine trees, and some are on the water (Ross Barnett Reservoir). The rate noted includes a $5 upcharge for a waterfront site. I've given this park a "9" rating because I try to reserve "10" for perfection or close to it. The restrooms here need updating, a coat of paint, and a scrub-down. The fixtures were clean enough, but there were lots of cobwebs, dead bugs, peeling paint and some rust throughout. The concrete pads are wide, but some are not level. The park is about evenly divided between monthly and overnight guests, but only a few sites can be reserved--most are on a first-come, first-served basis. No pull-through sites and no ground fires permitted, but sites all have grills. We would definitely return here if we're ever in the Jackson area again.

This is an older campground down the road from Opryland. It is a family-owned campground and well managed and cared for. Bath houses were very clean, but the plumbing is a bit outdated. Sites are roomy and reasonable level. There's a shuttle service to downtown Nashville which is a very good idea since downtown is crowded, especially on nights when there's a concert or game, or both. The shuttle is $10/person round trip. The rate here may seem high, but we've stayed previously at one of the other nearby parks and the daily rate was even higher. Nashville is a tourist town, and the parks charge accordingly.
