Enjoyed this park. Lots of good hiking and interesting sights in the park. The campground is divided into four loops, the first down by the lake with most sites taken by big RVs. We enjoyed the last loop for a more isolated, quiet camping experience. Some problems with the hot water in the shower, but the maintenance people fixed it right away. Only drawback is the highway that passes right through the campground, but it is local traffic only and no traffic allowed after 10pm.

This park is close to home and we go often just to get out of the city. It is a pleasant, small campground in a state park with lots of activities, including many miles of hiking trails, bike trails, swimming pool in the summer (not near the campground), etc. Unfortunately, since it is so close to Memphis, it often gets noisy locals looking for a place for an outdoor party. Last week the ranger had to come out at 1am to quiet a group of boisterous campers. The "no-alcohol" rule is not closely policed. Over the years we have noticed a deterioration of cleanliness, especially in the restrooms / showers. It is now nearly unbearable, and the cleaning crew spends only about five minutes cleaning up every day. We were extremely disappointed, as were many of the other campers we talked to. I do not know if this reflects poor management of this park, or indicates the state's budget problems; I look forward to checking on Tennessee's other parks in the coming months.

A pleasant, quiet campground. Some good hiking trails in the park. We stayed on the South Loop and enjoyed it much.
