Swan Creek

Tanner, Alabama

Date of Stay:

This Campground was adequate for an overnight stay. We would stay again if we needed a stopping place in the area. Not scenic, but on the other hand not ugly. Easy access as it is right on the highway. A wooden privacy fence blocks the Highway. There are permanent residents including permanent construction. Overnighters are up front in pull through sites.

Date of Stay:

We overnighted here on a trip down the Natchez Trace. The location was convenient to the Trace. This is a small campground without fancy development, but it was satisfactory for our needs. The site was grass, but the one we were on was very level. We walked down to a nice creek adjacent to the camping sites. There is a restaurant on site, but it had just closed Sunday at 3:00 PM just before we arrived.

Date of Stay:

We stayed here for a Mississippi State Football game at Commonwealth Stadium. The camping went well. The ball game didn't. The drive to down town Lexington was easy. We found lots of good restaurants and stores in easy drive of the campground. We would stay here again if we in the area.

Date of Stay:

We stopped here a couple of nights. We toured the mansion at the park. This was an OK time killer; not a must see. Driving instructions in emails are not adequate. Neither is signage to the campground. From the Bluegrass Parkway turn West on Hwy 150 (this was signed thankfully because the email says "150 E just off Bluegrass Parkway). Turn left on Hwy 49 (sign for Campground small). Campground is maybe 1/4 mile on right (no sign at entrance). We were in site 21. This site and 20 and 22 are easy to back in because of the road through the center of the campground. Many sites would be difficult to get in with large campers. Their electricity and water connections are between two sites so they are on the wrong side for every other site. I noticed a few electrical hookups that were too far away without extensions.

Date of Stay:

We stayed here and visited Mammoth Cave and towns nearby on Hwys 65 and 31. The drive to Mammoth Cave was about 20 miles. There is not a Walmart close. The grocery stores in Brownsville will have everything needed. They will not be open very late though. Nice place to stay for a visit to the Lake or Cave. A long way from I 65 for a one night stop over. Site 5 was easy in for our MH. Could not lock on Dish 119 due to trees.

Date of Stay:

This COE campground is similar to most COE camping facilities. Very well built and maintained. Pad was concrete and level. Large crushed rock patio area. Site 38 we were in, had a lake view and direct access to the lake shore.

Date of Stay:

We stayed here three nights to attend the Belk Bowl in Charlotte, NC. This was a convenient location for visiting Charlotte. Sites were asphalt. As happens with many asphalt sites, the sites were sloping across the site. For us that meant having to level by putting downslope wheels on about 4 inches of wooden blocks. Almost all the campers around us had to do the same. This is a nice campground, but most sites were occupied by long-term occupants. Our site was a pull-through, but we had to back out of it. There was no way to pull forward out of the site and make the turn on the camp road in front. It was too tight with trees in the way. We would camp here again if in the Charlotte area.

Date of Stay:

We stopped here for one night stopovers twice on a trip to North Carolina. The park is very suitable for that purpose. It is not far from I-20, but far enough not to be too close to highway noise. Sites are fairly level, mostly pull through and easy to get into. They are gravel and fairly narrow. You have to pay attention to where the electrical hookup is to avoid slide interference. We would use this RV park for one night stop overs again. We prefer a more natural setting for longer stays.

Date of Stay:

We overnighted here on our way through. We like this park better than others in the local area. The sites are level gravel, grassy, dirt. The area is partially shaded by old pecan trees. They no longer provide much shade to many of the sites due to past wind damage. The park provides a launch ramp into Lake Chicot for campers. No reservations are made. They have lots of sites. You pick your site on a first come basis.

We enjoyed a four night stay here. Access off Highway 65 can be difficult. Staff recommended access from Branson Landing Exit. This worked well. We left out south through Hollister. There is a small traffic circle to negotiate, but the route is signed well as business 65. You would want to avoid the Hwy 76 (Main St.) exit, which is the way my iphone map directed me. There would be lots of traffic on main street and street-side parking with a tight turn down Branson Landing. The payoff for negotiating the access off the highway is convenient access to Branson activities. The sites are mostly pull through on concrete slabs. Bathhouses were clean and well maintained.

Date of Stay:

Nice COE park on the White River. We reserved site #1. We have a 33 foot bumper pull camper and could not level front to back because of the slope of the site. We were allowed to move to site #2 and easily level. All the other sites in this loop appeared to be okay for leveling as well. The bath houses were clean, but only the lower handicapped shower would work in one of the showers.

Date of Stay:

Mt. View is a musical community. We were here a week to take in some of the music in the community. As an unknown bonus the Park was hosting the Ozark Dulcimer Gathering the week we were there. This was our third trip to the area. We scheduled a week next year before we left. Be aware if you are not an instrument player, by your third trip you are likely to buy an instrument. Sites are gravel but level. The park owners, staff and volunteers will make you feel at home.

Date of Stay:

Nice small park in a pastoral setting. Convenient to Fayetteville area. A good many sites used by permanents. However, upkeep is acceptable around campers. The 20 amp receptacle on our site did not work. Problem appeared to be ants nesting in the receptacle. We just did not use it. We would stay here again if in the area.

Date of Stay:

Nice park on Lake Chicot. Area open with native pecan shade. Camp sites black top, but, not necessarily level. Bath houses clean, but need maintenance. Water hook-ups all on wrong side.

Date of Stay:

This is easily the nicest campground we have used. The sites are well designed for access and setup. All sites had level (side to side) blacktop parking pads and excellent patio areas. We had good cell coverage and some off air TV coverage. Bath houses and showers were cleaned daily. Garbage was removed from camp ground receptacles daily as well.
