Campground gets very muddy and the lawn around the sites needs help. Campground hosts (and there seems to be too many for this place) park their vehicles on empty sites. Book your sites online or get what they want to give you. There are trailers there that look uninhabited and it downgrades the campground even further. Not all campground sites have sewer facilities. Most are pull through sites but the turn is pretty sharp. If you have a bigger rig you will cross the mud. Leaving the site is somewhat dangerous as there are large trees at the corner. Backing out could be a better option. There is a pool a little ways away but does not open until summer. Lots and lots of ticks....Use caution. Walking areas outside the campground are nice. Went to Davy Crockets house and it seemed interesting until we spoke to a ranger. They are not sure if he actually lived there. Some years ago they found remnants of foundations in the area and thought one would be a nice place to build or move a structure calling it the Crocket family house. ? At first it was a WOW factor. Then it was like who are they kidding. Made me laugh. This campground is good for a night or two on your way to your final destination. Not a place to camp for more then that. The state should sell this area for development with a beautiful Walmart with sites that have sewer, water, and electric. The Campground, with a little bit of money and effort could be a great destination. Right now to is not.

This campground is geared to the younger crowd with age 13 being ideal. Its an all night party place. Mostly tent and pop up campers and very few motorhomes. The noise level in this campground is extreme as there is a train that runs 24 hours and will shake you out of bed even in a motorhome. Then there is the quarry which runs all night with all kinds of noises. Sites are extremely small and only a hand full have sewer. There is a pump out station there which charges $10.00. A camping store with prices 3 times that of Walmart and it is stocked with mostly Hershey items. It has a great shuttle service to the park. I would not stay there again as I like to sleep nights

Planned on camping here for the weekend as it sounded like a nice weekend getaway. We left after just one night. Sites were smaller then usual, gravel, small patio and table. The pet walk is not as it appears on the map. From the end of the road, it is about 18 inches of poison ivy with a 30-40 foot drop into a smelly, marsh like stream. Dog owners do not pick up after their pets from what we have seen. This is a 55+ campground, or a better word would be housing complex. Many RV lots amount the numerous houses. Everyone seemed to be from Florida and here for at least the summer. This place is not camping for sure. The pool is not heated but clean, no one is around the pool area so you are all alone to enjoy a swim. But wait: Sign says no single adults in the pool! The bathrooms are stalls made if 1X3 lumber with old time formica. Doors cracked, but it is clean to our surprise. I would not call this a resort. It is a spot and that's it. No one seems friendly because there is no one walking around, except for walking their dog and leaving a mess. Not worth the price. Office is always closed and the streets are too narrow for big rigs. Woodalls got this one wrong.

Great, friendly park to stay at; however there is construction and equipment at the campground. Not a good time to stay there. It was in and out for us.
