While traveling back and forth through Tennessee, I was able to call ahead and reserve a pull-through spot for my motorhome and towed vehicle. On my first arrival at 7 PM, in the dark, the owner met me at the office, checked me in, showed me to my spot, and turned the on the water main, as nighttime temperatures were below freezing. It was hard to find this RV Park on my 2010 Garmin maps, since coordinates and addresses are somewhat wrong for this area. Fortunately, the owner's wife gave me directions by phone before I arrived. For future stopovers, I took a GPS reading just in front of the Park and saved it; the reading will bring me in at the correct exit from I-40: N35.99221 and W083.58291. I hope to stop over here again.

This campground has its pluses and its minuses. On the plus side, I was able to reserve two sites during busy Spring Break week, in an "RV buddy" area where RV doors and picnic areas face each other. Second, when I arrived at 7 PM, my reservation papers were easily accessible, and a security team member promptly showed up to escort us to our site. Finally, when phoned, he responded quickly with an adapter plug for our 30 amp hookup. On the negative side, however, I was shocked to read the "Rules for Children" which require adults accompany children at all times, that children be in their sites by dusk, that they not walk on anybody else's site, and concludes with "keep in mind that other guests may not be interested in your children's presence, which is their right." Unfortunately, this kind of language invites a sense of entitlement on the part of the older, permanent guests at this KOA facility. One of them barked at my daughter-in-law because, although she was there first, she had filled up all 4 of the washing machines in the laundromat. Because this campsite is expensive (for a party of 6 in each of two motorhome sites), and is not children friendly, I will not stay here again.
