There are a limited number of waterfront sites. Our site, B22, had a view of the river through the trees. It is quiet during the week, and started getting busy for the weekend on Thursday. We ate in the lodge restaurant, which has a nice marina view, and was inexpensive. WiFI is available in the lodge lobby. The park needs some maintenance but is well managed. Probably it's a funding problem. There are lots of songbirds. We also saw deer and a snake. We would camp here again. We camped at Joe Wheeler State Park in a Motorhome.

We had a great time at the park. We saw lots of deer. The park was very quiet, but still had a nice number of people in it. The park ranger was exceptionally nice. The little store was just the right size. We did not eat breakfast at the marina, but we plan to next time we go. We will definitely visit this park again. We camped at Joe Wheeler State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Joe Wheeler has many sites along the lake but the woods obstruct the view of the water in most areas. Most sites are very shady & pads are level and roomy. We were visited by a raccoon each night as we sat around the campfire. The campground is very attractive and well-kept. Park rangers make frequent rounds. On the minus side, the rest rooms need some repairs. Most of the latches were broken on the stalls and there was water on the floor in the toilet areas.

Great park. If you want to be on the water, there are only a few sites in the C loop that have waterfront sites. All other sites are in the woods, though they are all pretty private and well shaded. Sites C8, C9, and C10 are right on/near the water, if you can get one. Staff was very courteous. The park is pretty much all full hook-ups, though there are just a few clearly marked sites with no sewer. We camped at Joe Wheeler State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a wonderful state park on the TN River with a few sites overlooking the river. The campground was full over the weekend, but cleared out a good bit during the week. The camp host were wonderful and stopped by and talked to everyone at each site daily. There is day area with a beach, the golf course, and the restaurant and Marina at the Lodge. Our campers did enjoy a day playing golf. We went and looked at an antique boat show at the Marina. There are tons of deer to see while traveling through the park and on the golf course. Unfortunately, our dogs managed to find a skunk and get sprayed, and that was a challenge, but this is a wonderful campground and we hope to go again soon.

This park is very pretty. Lots of pine trees. We were able to set up our satellite system and get a picture. They also have a club house for meetings and potlucks. We are going back again. We camped at Joe Wheeler State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is probably one of the nicest, scenic state parks we have ever stayed in. It definitely rivals our great Texas state parks. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, even after closing when we arrived late at night. The roads were black top and the sites had level black top RV pads as well. The full hook-up utilities were in good shape and well positioned on the site. Local TV reception from Huntsville was very good. There were plenty of trees so the sites were completely shaded. The sites were very large and roomy. There was plenty of privacy between sites. The rest rooms were decent, but were the typical state park flavor. This was not an issue for us because we were using the full hook-ups. There was a great swimming hole over at the day area. Only problem here was you had to drive to get to it because it was too far to walk with lawn chairs, towels, ice chest, etc. Price was $19 per night. We highly recommend this park.

The campground has three loops in a wooded setting. The access roads are paved as well as the sites. Leveling is required at the site. For a large campground, it was quiet. Plenty of shade, birds, and deer. The fee is $18 plus tax which brings the nightly total to $19.80. We would like to return in the future. We camped at Joe Wheeler State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Joe Wheeler is a beautiful state park in which all but two or three of the RV sites have full hookups. The campground is big-rig friendly, having multiple sites that can handle rigs in the 30-40' range. However, the park is older and the electrical boxes and are getting worn out. On our first trip there in 2003, the park maintenance personnel had to replace the 30-Amp receptacle shortly after we arrived. Just check it to be sure that your plug fits snuggly. Otherwise, the park seems to be in slightly better-than-average condition in regards to mechanicals. The best loop is the last one, as it has water front sites and easy access to fishing. The marina has pontoon boats for rent, which are a great way to see the lake. The NASA Space Center is also a short day trip away in Huntsville. I highly recommend this park, but be forewarned that it can get a little noisy on the weekends when some partiers and small children arrive. We camped at Joe Wheeler State Park in a Travel Trailer.
