I selected "$25.00" because I can't remember the exact nightly rate. It was somewhere in the $20's range. We used this park as a quick "overnight" stay. Nothing special, but it was a clean functional campground. We had a nice gravel site, good electric. Nice neighbors, quiet place. Kids enjoyed the playground. Was great for an overnight stay; would return again without hesitation.

I selected "$25.00" because I can't remember the exact nightly rate. It was somewhere in the $20's range. Rustic-type State Park. There is a loop with pull-through large sites for motorhomes, but we chose the more rustic loop with smaller sites. Most of them are somewhat unlevel, the paved camp roads are rough, and you need to be a skilled driver/backer to manipulate some of the roads and sites. Fortunately, its just the type of place I prefer. Spacious campsites, though unlevel. Very rustic setting, requires skill (which I have) to back-in the tight areas, but once your are setup its great. Good power, nice fire pits and picnic tables. Will definitely return here again, but we plan to visit many more of the State Parks in Tennessee.

I selected "$25.00" because I can't remember the exact nightly rate. It was somewhere in the $20's range. We stayed here because we wanted something in the Nashville area, and we were going to a concert in Culleoka, TN. Theres really nothing else in the area that met our needs. I'm glad, because this State Park is great. No, its not manicured and perfectly clean or level. You will have trouble with large rigs. You will have to do some leveling to your rig. But, we enjoy camping in the woods and I prefer the rustic sites. I can handle the leveling issues and I'm skilled at backing my trailer into tight sites. Once we were setup, it s a great place. Large sites, nice fire pit, concrete picnic tables. The campground was laid-out nice and was enjoyable for riding bikes with the kids. Overall, it was a great place to stay and we would gladly return. We hope to visit many more of the Tennessee State Parks.

As said before, if you are an ATV trail rider, this place is for you. If not, it's only good for an over-night stay if you're going through the area. We used it as the latter. It was a Wednesday afternoon when we stopped; we had no reservations. The park looked mostly empty when we pulled in. The layout is a strip of asphalt between 421 and a creek, with paved sites on either side. Half the sites are creek side, half are on the highway. There is a small restroom/ shower house that we did not use. The office is not marked; I found out it shares the other half of the shower house. We never got a good direction on which site to choose. We had to move sites three times; the last two times were after the office was closed. They had no idea who had what site reserved or when. We moved to the other side along the road; and found that all the water hydrants for all those sites were locked. Thankfully, the ATV riders moved sites so we could move back over by the creek side and have running water. Summary - OK for an overnight stop, you get $20.00 worth. Road is noisy but not too bad if you can get a creek side site. The managers have no idea how to organize sites or reservations, and once they leave for the night, you're on your own, even if the water is locked.

We stayed one night without a reservation, but it was a weekday. Seemed to be a popular place to stop, and reservations are recommended normally. It really is in the heart of the rockies, with beautiful scenery all directions. Good showers, and Wi-Fi would work at the closer full-hookup sites, but we stayed further back in a W/E only site, so Wi-Fi did not reach. However, they have a lounge room with couches, TV, books, games, etc where we used the free W-iFi. Would come back again!

Great place to stop for the night. Not a weekend destination. Good water pressure, electric, plenty of level sites. Easy self-registration; only $8.00 a night. Can't beat that! The town also has Wi-Fi that costs $2.50 for 24 hours use.

It's a large asphalt field with hookups. Right next to the highway, very noisy. Half of the business is a trailer park. There are plenty of hookups. Around 6 sewer connections per site. It seems that they just installed sewer drops every four feet or so; so when you park, you'll have 2 or 3 sewer connections UNDER your rig and a couple on each side. Showers and restrooms are decent. They advertise fast Wi-Fi, but we were several rows back from the main office, and had no signal. There appeared to be an additional Wi-Fi antenna on the shower/laundry house which was closer, but it apparently didn't work. No reception. Laundry was terrible. Ended up paying around $12.00 in quarters for a couple loads, but they still barely got dry. Overall, if you're desperate for a place to sleep, then go for it. If you can drive a few more miles, then keep going. The place is huge with plenty of sites, so it's not likely to be full. Most campers seemed to be full-time. Also, the office was closed when we arrived, and closed in the morning. Had to wait until 10 am for them to open so I could pay the outrageous fee and get quarters for the laundry.

Great place to stop for the night; however there were several people staying long-term. It's on the west end of Greensburg, and is owned/operated by the town. Self-registration is in the shower/laundry area. Very clean showers. Full hookup sites, some with 50 amp. Good Wi-Fi that is free (passcode is printed on the registration board).

A very nice secluded park along the Current River. We had a particular site that was just a few steps from the river with our own private sandy beach. No hookups, but it seemed to be generator-friendly, and there is a water spigot centrally located to fill your tanks as needed. We just stopped for one night, but it appeared to be a popular camping destination. Self-registration center; $14.00 a night.
