Add $5 if making a reservation, which you probably want because this place was packed on a July weekend. Great tree cover and modern sites with water and 30/50 hookups. You will be able to see your neighbors, but the spacing is more generous than I've see at other Tennessee parks. Park does offer WiFi, which gave a strong signal at the site but had limited bandwidth for anything beyond fetching email. Usable Verizon LTE service in the park. Very friendly camp store with firewood and basic supplies and food. Rangers had organized hayrides, educational events, a movie night and even a Pokemon hike throughout the weekend.

$10 for site without hookups. Great NPS campground with easy access to the trail network and downtown Hot Springs. There were two hosts alternating shifts during peak season, plus regular patrols by rangers. As others have said, no showers on site so use your rig or head to Bathhouse Row. Both hookup and tent sites are available along the creek, and they are also the farthest back from the highway.

$30 a night (+$5 for parking without annual pass) seems a little high for a low-demand location. But it's a very pretty park and an easy stopping point between Augusta and Savannah. Clean and level sites with tons of room and trees in between. Use caution with the electrical hookups. Our control panel gave a fault for AC overload after we plugged in, so the wiring may be questionable. Cleanest bathrooms I've seen in a state park. Weak but useable Verizon voice and LTE coverage. You can hear multiple trains passing in the near distance, but it wasn't disruptive.

Popular and large state campground. Area A is the most up-to-date with new paving, modern bathrooms and some waterfront sites. Workers say the B and C areas are due for upgrades heading into 2016. Area D is primitive camping and designated online as "tent only". The park seems stricter about keeping vans and Class B's out of this area compared with other campgrounds. Small camp store sells ice and other supplies but get firewood before you come into the park.

Lightly used Forest Service campground with very spacious sites. There were only a handful of people in the entire park even on a summer weekend. We stayed at one of the $7 primitive sites, but the loop is a very rough drive and only a few of the sites are suitable for a Class B. Lake has a sand beach and swimming access. Area is well patrolled by rangers and a camp host. Bathrooms are average for USFS and could use a good cleaning to cut down on the grime and bugs.

Date of Stay:

Well maintained and patrolled state park, but the sites are very close together. We visited on a peak weekend and there wasn't much room to move around. Staff was friendly, with a small camp store and woodshed. A word of caution if you're a Class B owner and sometimes "dry camp" in primitive sites: Most of the tent sites are what other places would call "walk in" sites. You're parking on the road and walking into the picnic/fire area. Others are on severe inclines. I would say only basic sites 52, 54, 56 and 59 have enough space to park in the living area of the site.

Friendly staff still waiting for us when we arrived late. Good sites with moderate tree cover. The property is on a slope, meaning many of the pull-through sites are terraced and you aren't looking right into your neighbor's window. Would avoid staying here during wet weather, especially if you like to walk around or use the facilities. Most of the roads and sites are dirt and heavy clay, which turned into a thick slop after a day of rain.

Clean RV park and friendly staff. A very easy spot to stop while driving I-80, but probably not many reasons to linger. No shade and the interstate noise was constant. Spacious and clean bathrooms. They have a fenced area to let the dog run around. Guests have to pay an extra $2 to use the dump site.

Rate reflects weekday senior discount, plus $5 vehicle fee. This is a quiet and well-kept state park with easy interstate access. The upper loop (lowered numbered sites) had a good view of a valley and lake, but was more crowded. Great landscaping, grass and tree cover on both loops. Bathrooms were clean. No park staff on duty when we arrived, and picking a site was slightly confusing. Reservation slips for the coming weeks were already clipped to site posts under the "Reserved" plaque, giving the appearance that almost every spot was taken for the current night. We finally picked a spot where the reserved dates were still several nights away. Traffic cones reading "closed for irrigation" were also in front of several of the sites but we never saw sprinklers come on.

Nice park a short drive out of town. They obviously cater to golfers, but are quite friendly to other RVers. Sites are basically in a field adjacent to the course, with power and water hookups. Very peaceful at night, especially when only a handful of the sites are occupied. I looks like quarters would get pretty tight if every space was booked -- we saw 3 only picnic tables to share among the campers. Bathrooms were clean, with private toilet, sink and shower stall in each one. Very fast Wi-Fi as well.

Rate reflects price for a weekend visit (not including the online reservation fee). It's a small park in a slightly out-of-the-way place, but still proved very popular. The day use area has a mile or two of hiking trails, along with picnic areas. Campground was fully booked when we visited, with several tents and two or three cars parked at each site. Fortunately a state park ranger made a couple rounds in the evening, along with volunteer hosts who were very attentive. A handful of utility sites are on a loop by the entrance, but the most secluded sites are in the back of the park. Creek runs by many of the sites. However you are not allowed to set up tents on the grassy banks. Facilities were disappointing, even by state park standards. The bathhouse seems to be original to the park, and was very dirty and smelly. The coin-operated shower in the men's room doesn't drain properly, causing water to pool by the toilets and sinks.

Very good location if you're wanting to do anything in Forks (it's the setting for the Twilight series, so there are plenty of tours and tourist attractions). Walking distance with sidewalks to all of the town's stores and restaurants. We had the choice between the gravel lot and the grass area in the back. Nothing was shaded, but the spaces had enough room. Bathrooms were clean, though showers were locked rather early at 9 p.m. when it was still daylight out. Wi-Fi was excruciatingly slow and we gave up when only the titles of web pages would load. Owners conceded they don't have enough bandwidth to serve everyone at the park. In that case, they probably shouldn't even advertise having Wi-Fi.

No frills Army Corps campground. Lots of rules, including no RV camping on non-electric (tent) sites and vice versa. But we were in a self-contained Class B and didn't need power that night, so took the spot anyway. Very old bathrooms kept moderately clean. Easy access during our visit to Omaha, with big strip malls/grocery store just a few miles down the road. However the campground seems to attract non-recreational users too. Saw several men camping with their roofing work trucks (maybe a storm recently hit?) and people obviously living out of their cars. One couple got in a fight with another long term resident and called police.

Bring your nickels and dimes, and quarters. This resort certainly offers a lot but very little is included with the base “camping” price, which is billed per person and not per site. We stayed here for a day of canoeing, and the boat takeout is conveniently close to campsites on the eastern side of the property. We chose a primitive site in one of the “family” camping areas. It’s an open field with lush grass and no paved parking pads, but that made it hard to keep the van clean once it started to rain. The resort distributes an entire brochure to lay out their fees. Extra charges for daytime visitors, to use the swimming pool, to camp in the “loud” area and even 50 cents to take a five minute shower (the water never got hot). Our stay was quite pleasant for mid-week in peak season, but it is clear the resort’s bread and butter is allowing rowdy parties on the weekends. We could hear a bit of noise from the “loud” area nearby, but I can only imagine how disruptive things get when sites are fully booked. A landowner along the river even told us weekend guests are very rude, often leaving trash and trespassing on her property. So one can guess how they behave while camping. Somehow the entire resort was a Verizon dead zone (Not even enough for voice/texting), but there is free WiFi at the front office.

A cozy little campground right off I-90. Very friendly owner who offers a lot of amenities in a small space. We didn’t have a chance to try the game room or swimming pool, but both looked nice. Wi-Fi wouldn’t connect, but worked once the router was reset inside the office.
