It's a shame. Here is a beautiful park, with very clean restrooms, paved roads, and easily accessed sites. If you camp here, be warned, the owners, who live above the office, are the most miserable, rude, money hungry folk I have ever seen. If you have a problem with your site, get ready for a fight, and don't ever expect to get any kind of refund, no matter what. There are too many rules, too many fees, the interstate is very loud and the owners have no people skills. The even went as far as to say that the campground is for sale and that they could give a rats *** if people are happy here. The employees are miserable and they look terrified. We have camped here 3 times and have tried to give them a chance, but each time it got a little worse. Even the local businesses nearby roll their eyes and express sympathy. They have all directed us to another, much nicer, friendlier campground up the road, which we are headed to as we speak. Stay away from this KOA!!!

Just so everyone knows - the previous poster who complained about the rude "host" is upset after being told to slow down when driving through the campground at a dangerous speed. This is a wonderful campground. We stay here all the time. The staff is friendly, and if tow vehicles are a problem, don't blame the campground. If you're in the Chattanooga area with an RV, you need to stay here!

This campground is under review by the KOA corp. Do not camp here! The owners and employees are rude, there prices are high, and the permanent campers/ live ins make it appear like a run down trailer park. Avoid this KOA at all costs. From what I'm told, it will not be a KOA much longer.

I have read the previous comments about this campground and I agree with most of them. There have been some positive changes that I have seen since last year. The owners are very strict, and when confronted, can be hot tempered. Most of the people who complain however, are those who don't follow the rules. Outside firewood is discouraged because of pests that travel within the wood. You are welcome to forage the campground for kindling etc... We stayed in an older RV and used one bag of wood for 3 days. We supplemented our fires with sticks and dead branches from the campground which the owners actually encouraged us to do. "It helps to clean up the place" he said. The pool hours have been extended from 10 am to 8 pm for campers (10 - 3 for non campers). There are fees for visitors that are posted in the camp office. This keeps the locals who loiter away. Overall, the campground is very clean, the staff is super friendly, and the owners can be very helpful as long as you follow the rules. I like the location. There is a lot to do and you will find a lot of information about the area here.
