This was our second visit to this campground. It is a city/county owned campground on the banks of the Tennessee River. It is part of a park which has a marina & boat ramp as well as a small beach area. The campground has pull-through and backin sites. There are no reservations but is first-come availability. We had no problems in our 43 ft. Motorhome and will return when in the area.

We stayed here 3 years ago and decided to return. It was just as nice as we remembered from our first visit. We were in one of the executive sites and it was very clean and spacious. The view each day was breathtaking and so relaxing. The owners were very nice and courteous and escorted us to our site upon check in. It is a short drive to a very nice grocery store and other shopping as well as many good places to eat. We enjoyed looking out at the Amish farms surrounding the campground and find this something unique to this campground. We were here in a 43 ft. Class A Motorhome and had no problems navigating in or out of the campground. We will definitely return.

We stopped overnight here in a 43 ft. Class A Motorhome. It is a nice campground with spacious pull-through sites that allowed us to stayed hooked up to the tow. The pull-through sites have water & electric but no sewer. There is a dump station in the campground. The roads in the campground are narrow with some tight turns but we were able to maneuver without too much trouble. It is about 3 miles off I-81 and we followed our GPS directions here which had us use exit 213A and we decided after arriving that it would have been an easier route to take the directions on the campground website which would have been at exit 217. We will return when in the area and try to take in some of the area attractions.

We stayed here 2 nights and found that it was very quiet at our site. The roads from the interstate were narrow and had several hairpin turns. There are only 3 pull through sites and very few big rig sites. The electric was good but water pressure was very low. Sewer connections at the sites were not where they should be and we had to wait until we were ready to leave to dump. This would be fine for a family with children and a small class A or trailer.

This campground would probably work well for young families with small RV or trailer. Sites are gravel and not level. No 50 amp electric (we were told our site had 50 amp but that is really a 30 amp & a 20 amp they should provide adapter), cable, wifi or sewer at sites. Dump station is near office which is at the back of the campground. Has a lake for swimming but beach is mud not sand. The road off I-68 is narrow with no shoulder. It was advertised as big rig friendly but that is not true. Entrance hard to see & navigate. All sites are backin which would not be a problem if the roads were wider & trees were further apart. No picnic tables, patios or fire rings. We are here for 1 night and will only return in an emergency.

We have stayed here many times and always enjoy our stay. It is located on Music Valley Drive just off of Briley Parkway. It is close to the Opry Mills Mall and Opryland. It has a very nice pool for the kids of all ages and several pump-ups on site. There is also a nice playground and the rides with Yogi on the trailer and fire truck. The Christmas light show every year is a special treat. Several good restaurants are within a mile of the campground and there is shuttle service to the Mall and Opryland area. We will definitely keep coming back here.

This was our first visit to this campground and we were very happy with it. It is only minutes off I-40 and well marked. We were here for 4 nights and loved the quiet surroundings. The new owners had taken ownership the day before our arrival and they were very nice, courteous and knowledgeable of the area. We were escorted to our site and assisted in backing into it. The campground is immaculate and the sites are well laid out. We had a site on the lake front and loved it. The lake front sites have wrought iron table/chairs, fire ring and a swing where you can relax and enjoy the scenery and wildlife. The off lake front sites have picnic tables. All sites are gravel with a concrete patio. There is cable tv and free wifi and our mifi also worked fine. The site was large enough for our 43 foot Class A and our tow without any trouble. There is a very nice grocery store with a deli, bakery and good meats less than one mile from here. We will definitely stay here again when in the area.

Stopped here in our Big Rig for an overnight and were very satisfied with the campground. Very clean with spacious pull through sites. The sites are grassy but most of them are level. Lots of trees on the perimeter and some of the sites but also many of them have none which helps with satellite reception. Several long-term campers but quiet and neat. The campground is across the road from the river and a park. The campground has a pool, putt-putt golf and playground for the children. We will definitely stay here again when in the area and need a stop-over campground.

Date of Stay:

We camped here 3 nights in a motorhome. The site is very tight for a big rig with many large trees at the site. The roads are narrow and one-way which makes it difficult to park and to exit in a big rig as the sites are very close together and the trees are on all sides of the sites. The ground at all of the sites stays wet all the time and several of the sites have large ruts in the ground surrounding the concrete pads. The hookups are located so far to the rear of the sites that most campers must use sewer extensions in order to reach the sewer dump at each site.

This was a very clean and well-run campground. We camped here 2 weeks in a motorhome. The sites were large and had plenty of space between sites. There was a pond on the campground that allowed fishing with a walk surrounding the pond. The only problems were the noise from the highway and the lack of convenient shopping and restaurants. The only grocery stores were in the surrounding towns, one 6 miles and the other 16 miles away. The other options were 58 and 75 miles away on each coast of the state. We found the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum, the Sugarlands Tour and Billie Swamp Safari worth the charge for each of them. We left the campground several days earlier than our reservation stated and were pleasantly surprised to receive a phone call stating they were refunding the unused days even though we did not request a refund. The staff was very helpful and courteous. If in the area again we would use as a stop-over for 2 or 3 nights but not much longer than that.

We have been here several times and always enjoyed our stay. We were on the inside part of the campground for the first time and it was much quieter than near the lake. We found that several of the things which they offered in the past were no longer being offered such as the weekly dinner in the club house and the Sunday brunch. We were always more than happy to pay extra for these as it was a good way to get to know the other campers. We hope they offer these again in the future. The campground was not full at any time during our visit (in past years it was always full with no empty sites). We will consider returning again at a future time.

We have stayed here several times and have always enjoyed our visit. We enjoy the quaint restaurants on the water and watching the fishing boats going and returning from their fishing trips. It is a small campground but very well run and upscale. We will definitely return again many times.

This was an overnight stop but a good value. The entrance was a bit tight for a big rig motorhome. It is an older campground and the big rig sites were new with very soft gravel. Due to recent heavy rains we were afraid of being stuck when departing because of the soft gravel on the site so we had to unhook our toad and back out of the pull-through site and onto more solid ground than was in the front of the site. The site was long enough to stay hooked up otherwise. The staff was friendly and courteous. There was a waterpark nearby but we did not inspect it. We will definitely return when in the area.

We have stayed here in the past and enjoyed our visits. It is owned by the county and very well run. It is a little tight with a big rig motorhome on some of the narrow roads in the campground. We were only here for two weeks so are in the short term sites by the lake. The sites are close to each other and there is not much landscaping. There is a nice canine fitness area in the campground. There is also plenty of room for walking/biking in the campground and the adjacent county park. It is convenient to shopping and restaurants. We will definitely return when in the area again.

This was our first visit and we loved it. The owners have taken great pains in creating and maintaining this campground. They have also employed two of the best managers that we have encountered in all of our travels. They go out of their way to be sure that everything is in proper working order and that everyone is taken care of. We enjoyed being on the water and fishing from the docks right in front of our RV. The campground is gated and we had no worries while there. You can walk or bike anywhere in the small town and not have any worries about your safety. There are several really good, local restaurants within walking or biking distance. There is one grocery store for essentials or else you can drive 30 miles to Naples for more serious shopping. We will definitely return again.
