I have stayed at about 200 CGs in the last 4 years, and I think this is the best CG ever. COE CGs are usually great, and this one was the best so far. Along the Cumberland River Cheatham Lake, Lock A, there is a 2 mile paved road with spaced trees, many with labels of kind, many concrete picnic tables, at least 3 boat ramps, the dam, locks, and power house, 3 playgrounds, well mowed grass verges. The sites are widely separated mostly and paved for RVs, with some large well graveled tent sites along the river bank. A second RV row is back from the river side sites but some are not real level. Bath houses very clean. Cost was $11.50/nite with America the Beautiful Senior card. The road in is narrow, windy, and some steep hills. Saw only one big A RV there. About 20 miles NW of Nashville off of state highway 12.33.

A beautiful well maintained KY state park on top of a high bluff with a wide far off view of the meantering Tennessee River, barges, forest. The Park is vast with civil war trenches, museum and artifacts, playground, etc. Roads and sites all paved with EW, and some with S also. Negative almost all are unlevel and need lots of levelers. Well spaced with lots of trees for most sites. $18 for seniors. It is isolated and reached by small winding roads. Good job Kentucky except you didn't level the sites.

Date of Stay:

Sites well spread, with narrow paved sites, with EW at back side of site. Many trees. Unfortunately most sites are somewhat unlevel front to back, side to side or both because the site paving conforms to the slope of the mildly rolling hill side. I had one of the very few really level sites. Clean and large bath houses x 2. A free shuttle will take you by a back road to the Horse park with its exhibits, horse shows and the vast well done and informative museum of the horses. It is $12 per person for a discounted entry to the horse park itself. $27 senior CG /nite. I downgraded because of the almost all unlevel sites. At the time of making the CG a bulldozer could have easily leveled the sites. A common error in many CGs.

A vast well maintained city park by Lima reservoir for boating. A hill for sledding, a smaller lake for swimming, an arboretum, well paved campground roads, level paved wide sites with a gravel border, 30 and 50 amps, water between two sites, a very clean tiled bathhouse with hot water. Lots of bike and walking paths. One rv dump. Really the nicest CG I have ever seen. $20 sr. rate.

Date of Stay:

Price $20 plus $5 non-Nebraska daily state park entry fee for $25. Asphalt roads and sites, sites almost level with 30 amp electricity at my back-in site. Other sites side of the road pull throughs. immaculate kept lush grass between widely spaced sites withh many large-medium sized trees. A play ground, dump and potable water fill. A lake on one side and a section of the Platte river flowing by on the back side. Has fire rings and tables. One central bathhouse with toilets, sinks and showers. A really nice CG. Only deficiency is the variable not quite level sites helped by various leveling methods.

Date of Stay:

Stayed in a 25 foot motorhome in the H section and my comments are based on this only. Bathhouses were clean with toilet, sink, and a great stick your hands in the slot hand blower dryer. The CG is on a slope with several loops and tarmac paved roads and sites. Sites are varied back end singles and double, and by the road pull throughs. Only a rare few are level. Most are mildly to badly un-level front to back and side ways. Many are very short. There were all sorts of leveling device attempts by campers trying to level their campers. Many campers had tents and canopies beside the paved sites. There were several non threaded faucets in the CG by the bathhouses. The main attraction for this CG is of course Yellowstone itself. So I rate this CG as only average for its own features. We actually were by luck assigned to an only sightly un-level site. This H section is heavily wooded and beautiful as a woodland. If there were the money to redo the CG, bulldozing new level and adequately sized sites would really make this a nice CG.

A real find. No charge, but donation appreciated city park on the down sloop between the Blooser air field and the highway south of Concordia with a north and south entrance, a dump station at the north entry. Sign in name, home town, site number on provided envelope and enclose donation if you wish (I did $15 and worth it.) Tarmac CG roads and mostly level concrete pads of various lengths with thick green grass between. Some 30 and 50 amp posts, some 30 amp only between sites and some with water spigots shared. Bath house with wash basin, toilets; no showers. Can walk up hill to the air field; no planes there now. There is an extensive Frisbee golf "course " by the CG. Four back in sites, rest pull throughs. Fourteen sites, a fifteenth very short site has actually got a trash dump in it. Very clean and beautiful CG, and a real credit to the town providing this Air Port Park CG.

Overnighted in the eastern B section along the river with a gorgious view with lots of trees, paved sites and roads. The western A section has the more western half view blocked by an extensive boat storage building and boat moorings. The eastern section of A has those nice river views. There are also more inland a C,D, E,F sections that are some reservable, some not. Many sites are level, some not quite. Well kept and clean park. $13 with senior America the beautiful pass. Good for biking about. This is really one of the best COE CGs I have camped at. There are 3 dump stations, one of which is presently taped off.

Like most COE CGs, very nice. Sr rate of $13, well paved roads, widely spaced huge gravel-sand sites with nice table and mostly level. Right on the lake views. Bathhouse clean. Wooded. The CG follows the hills about the lakeshore and is up and down hilly so not good for biking or elderly walkers. Several miles to the Thurmond dam and COE vistor centers with history of the building of the dam and its value to the area in flood control, recreations, and electrical power. The entire Thurmond lake area has an incredible number of recreational opportunities; like 13 COE CGs, 6 state parks, 7 county parks, 3 US Forest Serevice, and 6 marinas, plus 23 day use and boat ramp areas.

Large CG with well paved roads, sites dirt-gravel and variably level-unlevel. Moderate number trees and lots of grass between sites which aare nicely spaced. Bathhouse we used is worn and needs upgrading, though fairly clean. No soap, paper towels or hand dryer blower. By the sandy dunes and white sand beach. Woodland walks and lots of bike paths. A good nature center by a board walk on the esturary and a long entrance causeway with sidewalks on both sides connecting to the mainland.

Date of Stay:

Stayed in the north figure of eight loop lay out campground. Didn't see the southern campground. The main road into the campground is well paved, and the ranger station, nature center, camp store, lake side and on the pier cabins are first class. The campground road though has very rough lurching pot holed surface, and the sites are ill-defined dirt and sand, variably unlevel with tree roots. Lots of trees. The bath house is old and worn and really needs updating though plus minus clean. There are several nice modern playgrounds for the kids. Nice piers and boat put in. Right on the side of the huge lake with beautiful view.

We can in from I-59 over small twisty narrow roads with small hard to see signs. Not good. Easy to get lost even with aid of google map. Better to approach by highway 49 as the campground entrance is right off it. The campground is spread out by a large lake with a great view for most sites. Sites and roads well paved. Some sites are level, many not quiet level. Very clean rest rooms and showers. Sites with Electric Sewer & Water. We were an overnight stay. Great value at $14 plus 91 cents tax. A good campground to spend several days.

Date of Stay:

Paved road and sites, nice evenly spaced. Well mowed grass and some landscaping. Extremely neat and clean. Right by the locks viewing passing boats. Quite with pastures and woodland behind. Shelter by each site. Watch out for the entry off highway 80, from the west large sign off two lane section may cause you to turn too soon on to a small road. Entry is a little further east.

Date of Stay:

Located in the hills and hollows of east Tennessee, the CG is on the fairly top of a hill with a very steep paved road coming up from the nice park office in the valley (hollow). An older CG area that is not quite level, with pull-throughs and electricity and water. A newer area has large graveled sites more level. Bathhouses were clean. Dump station by the entry road. The Natural Tunnel is spectacular with a steep taxing zig zagging trail from a nice visitor center leading down; better to use the excellent chair lift. A creek has created a huge natural tunnel at the base of a hollow eroding a tunnel through a mountain. A railroad and the creek both run through the tunnel. There are hiking trails. Now for a complaint. The CG site price was $30. We were drop-ins, but we were charge $5 for a "reservation" anyway, plus tax on the site and the "reservation" So $38. The ladies at the office obviously have already caught a lot of grief about this but this was not in their control.

Date of Stay:

We overnighted so only used the campground which was fine. Paved roads and gravel sites mostly level that I saw. 30 amp and water at site. Dump station. CG clean, neat with large central grassy areas. The north section we were in had a central bathhouse with only one paved walkway to it and the opposite side was a steep grassy sloop. Unfortunately Canadian geese were liberally pooping the area. The rest of the park has all sorts of recreational facilities that make it a great place for families to stay. Senior rate was 25% off, so $16/night for me. Very pleasant ranger I dealt with and rangers full time living at the park.
