The Pros: Pet friendly, wi-fi available, great view, peaceful. The Cons: No bathroom or shower facilities any closer than the 1/4 to a 1/2 a mile walk from camping area, no public telephone, no food, beverages, or ice at location, must drive 8 miles for anything. No cable or satellite access. Management is very unprofessional (a woman running around half dressed). I was there for Valentines Day, and any respectable persons do not care for such behavior. Most residents or visitors were men, so we guessed its acceptable to most there. This park is geared for hang gliders only apparently, at least now. We were there several years ago and it had different management, public restrooms, showers, public phone, and served food at campsite area via a concessions unit. It was obvious to us they neither cared or wanted private individuals in their park. It appeared the park has many permanent residents in it, hang gliders we assumed. - Jerry & John

A very clean, and well cared for facility! Staff was courteous, helpful and responsive. The park is nestled at the base of Lookout Mountain in a delightful rural setting. It is located next to hang gliding landing field and caters primarily to those who come for hang gliding but all are welcome. Chattanooga is an easy drive with many activities available in the area. It was fascinating watching the hang gliders being towed up for their flights or watching them glide gracefully to the ground. All the people we met during our stay were warm and friendly. I strongly recommend you consider staying at this safe and family oriented facility. - Rowbear

Came without reservations traveling on the way home. 6mile drive up mt., somewhat steep and hairpin turns. Campground well maintained with gates that are locked 10pm-7am. We stayed in East Rim sites are spacious, very level water/elec. Yurts, new cabins, group camping and walk-ins available. Nice trails with great views. Firewood available at each section from camp hosts. Playgrounds at each section. Quiet and peaceful place. Not far from town or Lookout Mt. - Rolltideroll

Beautiful park and campground. The road in climbs 1,200 feet with a couple of switchbacks but we navigated it easily with a 40-foot motorcoach and a tow vehicle. Just take it easy. Would do a 10-rating but there are no sewers and electricity is only 30-amp (we used a cheater box to get service from both 30-amp outlets). Lots of trees would block satellite reception when leaves are out but ours worked this time. We stayed in the east rim campground which seems to be newer, but the west rim sites are nice too. Sites are angled well for easy back-ins. Lots of nice trails and great views, This was our third time here over the years and we'll keep it on our "return to" list. - Grumpier99

We simply love this park. Beautiful in the fall. Fantastic hiking. West Rim sites are very well wooded. We have four feeders out and the birds are very happy. Roads on West Rim campground are narrow and some turns are sharp. I am in a 40 foot long, tall, wide fifth wheel so it is a challenge, but we made it. You cannot reserve a specific site. Some have 50 amp and are so marked. None have sewer. Unfortunately, they do not exercise any control on site selection so we did see tent campers on a 50 amp site. Great water pressure. Enjoy!!
We are here for five nights and won't leave the park. We are here to hike as much, as many, as often as possible. It is so beautiful here that I have no desire to go anywhere else. - Moe and Flo are on the go

Bathrooms are dated/need updating. Drive up to park was all uphill, twisty road. Spot 30 was a little tight and not too level. Pool was good but lots of kids (they we good, just lots of them.) Roads/sites in park are gravel, and a little tight. Park clean and grass mowed. My meter showed 114 volts, ran our AC's just fine. If you are just passing through, not the best of choices. If you want a relaxing spot off the beaten path, then probably OK. More of the $35/night park. - The World is R Oyster

The park was crowded, spaces were tight, they did not enforce quiet hours. - myo

The sites were gravel and not level. The price we paid is too much for this KOA. - USarmyxray

I'm not exactly sure how to rate this campground. On one hand, it had a special ambiance to it that took us back in time to the 1960's. It it a quiet, family-oriented campground with all of the basic necessities. The staff was very helpful and friendly, and the Caverns and Homestead exhibit were an added bonus. On the other hand, we felt like the campground was in disrepair. I'm sure being a small family run campground, that funds are tight to do improvements. However, they could increase their business by 200 percent if they would invest some money into it's appearance. My negative comments would include unlevel sites which are too close to each other, and the need to upgrade the bathhouse. My positive comments would include the beautiful scenery, nice pool and location with area attractions. - RandyP

We are giving this campground a 7 only because it really needs some updating and upkeep. The caverns are great (our guide was very knowledgeable) , as is the animals, pool and the quiet area. At check in the people weren't too friendly. The bathrooms weren't cleaned and there wasn't a lot of hot water. I don't think that we will go back - noriwitt

It is with reluctance I give this park a 6. There is a real dicotomy here. Start with the Pluses: Great location, quiet, recently part of Passport America (hence low rate), Wi-Fi (but only at picnic pavillion near cave entrance), lots of shade and room for kids, tent sites, lots to do at campground with caverns and woodworking and living history displays, close to Mentone and Fort Payne. Minuses: tight sites, some significant leveling issues, tight turns on gravel roads, steep grade in/out, dump station not on level surface and in disrepair, lack of hot water in showers (tepid at best, pilot light went out we were told), most of the sites could use some attention of some sort. We stopped here to visit the area, and were happy with choice. Take time to visit caverns and chat with family members. If you have PA, it is a GREAT deal. But if you have a big rig, are not comfortable on narrow roads, have trouble backing, then this may not be your cup of tea. I really want to see them succeed and keep this facility open. With the temporary closure of State Park campground for renovations, hopefully increased business will provide capital to make the improvements needed to bring this up to a 8 or 9 with out a lot of effort. - Too-wow

Owners manage the Campground - they were incredibly attentive and professional. Beautifully manicured and cared for - very diverse with a pond, running creek, trails, pet area. Rained hard while we were there for 3 days but drainage on the grounds was excellent. Great access to highway. Mentone is a hidden gem! Will return! - TexMexRVer

Such a wonderful place to stay. Our hosts could not have been more friendly or helpful. They really made us feel welcome. The park is quiet and extremely well kept. Bath house immaculate. Great area to visit all the attractions. Would stay again in a heartbeat. Loved it! - JBB

My wife and I stayed here based on previous reviews. We were not disapointed! It is about 6 miles easy drive from I-59. Easy to enter and plenty of room for big rigs. The sites are grass and level. Our 30 amp service was without issue and 50 amp is available through out the camp. Restrooms are spotless, WiFi good. The owners are very friendly, helpful and led us right to our site. This camp is quiet. Just what we needed after a long day on the road. We visited here in our motor home and will certainly be returning. - docsouce

Having done 4 nights, no hookups in Cades Cove, headed home an got caught in the nightmare that is Chattanooge thru traffic. Called and asked if a one night stay was available. They said yes. Great views, lots of amenities and a really eager staff. Stayed in a pull through, no problems. Easy in, off the interstate, plenty of nearby places to shop or eat. Got up and got on the road back home. Would be a really nice place for a few days to relax. - deddy5

Nice campground just to the West of Chattanooga. Good cable and Wi-Fi and utilities were well placed in the site. Trash is picked up twice a day. Looks to be plenty of staff members always busy doing something to keep the campground clean and well maintained. Easy access to Chattanooga and the surrounding area. Campground sits at the base of Raccoon Mountain and overlooks the valley towards Lookout Mountain. - Codys Family

Site was a bit unlevel. Location was great. Near things we wanted to see and do. Excellent service. Grass could have been mowed. Nice shade. Pool was good. People with glass beer bottles in pool area. Nice view of Lookout Mountain. We stayed in a Motorhome. We would stay there again. - degreenlee

Serinity lives up to its name. It is a quiet park in a very wooded area around a man made lake. The park provides overflow for nearby Desoto Falls State park but is worthy in its own right. The owner is very friendly and helpful. The park is clean and well maintained. On the down side, the restrooms and shower rooms are crude and sort of "home made" with plywood floors, one without bare studs showing. There is LOTS to do in the area. - Buddy Ray

This is a nice campground. It is by a lake and a public park. We were able to run and swim our dog early morning without a leash. The park is clean. There are some long-term rigs there. I wouldn't say it handles big rigs very well--at least not 40' motorhomes! We pulled in after dark...I would not recommend unless you are familiar with the park! Their website's directions are not correct so be cautious! We tried a couple sites before deciding on one. Pads are gravel and soft (maybe just because it is early spring?) Our front jack went in about 6 inches. The pull-thrus are half-circles so if someone is in "front" of you your ability to pull out of your site could be very tight. There is no sewer at the sites...only dump station. Overall, I think it would be a great park for smaller rigs. - Gma Linda

Love this park. This was our first time here since its 1.5hr out from our house. Very friendly staff also making sure everything was ok. Plenty of room for our kids to play safely and a huge bonus was the big playground area. Lots of area to fish which my husband loved. They had a big fire pit at every lot. Also a pole to hang a lantern if you needed one. Right off the interstate and close to a local Walmart if you forgot anything. Only thing that I personally don't like is they don't take reservations and do anything online. BUT WE WILL DEFINITELY COME BACK - Campingfamily4life

This is a very nice,clean campground located on Nickajack Lake/Tennessee River. Friendly management that were very accommodating! I have a small Casita TT, but the park could accommodate up to the largest Class A, I'm sure. Since I was only staying for the night and not even unhooking, the manager took me to a pull through site looking right at the lake. It was so pleasant, I hung around until almost noon the next morning! Electric and water hookups at sites, dump station on site. Perfect if traveling through because it is literally 2.5 miles off of I-24. They are open year round except for two weeks in January. They don't officially take reservations but if you know that you are coming in that no, you can call them and they will hold one for you. I will definitely stay there again overnight and hopefully for a few days sometime! - coosa

An amazing peice of property that could have so much potential. $20 a night for electric and water for our RV. We've always wanted to stay here because it looks so pretty when driving by on I-24, but what a disappointment. The bathhouse is an embarrassment. The light doesn't work, there is trash all over the place. No door on the stall. No paper. The garbage doesn't look like it's been picked up in a week. Really sad because the property could be so lovely. - Harbinger77

This campground is on a peninsula in the Nickajack Lake/Tennessee River and is a prime location for those who like to fish or kayak with boat ramps, fishing piers and boat trailer parking. I did not see a lot of geese or droppings. It has a lot of seasonal campers but the ones we met were all friendly. It also has a lot of tents especially along the water. It may be difficult to find an available site in the summer because of the seasonal campers. I was able to reserve a site by phone in May. The office for checking in is a little tricky to find due to lack of signage and is in the middle of the park up on a hill. I recommend that you go to their website (www.marioncountypark.com) and print a map of the campground so that you can see which roads to take. It appears that the people who manage the campground live in a yellow mobile home which is where you check in. The dump station is near the office. There are 2 bathhouses. The one by the office is new and has 2 personal rooms with 1 shower, 1 sink and 1 toilet. The other one is very old with only 1 shower, 1 sink and 1 toilet. There is no sewer at the campsites and not all of the sites have 50 amp. The sites looked level, pads are gravel, only a few have a picnic table. There are fire rings all over the park. You can see this campground from I-24 but the road noise did not bother us at all. It is easy to get to from I-24 exit 158 which has a Loves's Travel gas station and restaurants. There are beautiful views of the water and mountains. The list of rules says no alcoholic beverages. The only complaint that I have with this park is that it has low water pressure. - Lini

We arrived in our 40 ft RV and were a little confused which way we needed to go as there is a sign for tent campers and one for RV camping. We thought "we're RV camping, so let's go that way". Wrong. We had to go up to the office where it said tent camping. Anyway, the campground is very nice with decent sized spaces. We were in space 29 which has a fire pit and a nice view of the river. There are a few geese here, but nothing to gripe about. The only real negative I have is the trash left laying around. The fire pit had cans and cigarette butts thrown in. There was also trash thrown all around one set of trash bins. I cleaned both up in an effort to make it nicer for the next person. The shower/restroom area was so-so. I've seen better, but it was ok. We may come back again. - Jeannette E

We had a water site and it was not worth the $40.00 it cost . As stated before, water is a scum pond. Lots of noise in morning. A lot of long-term sites. - This Old Man
Oct 2015 - $31.00
Not sure if I should even give this park a 3. Lots of long termers that live full time. If you want to sleep in, forget it - there's motorcycles and loud trucks leaving early in the a.m. There is NO cable unless you want to make a $100 deposit for the box. And you don't pick up anything over the air.
By the time we realized the paper the office gave us didn't have a WiFi code on it, was too late for us to go to the office and ask. Couldn't call as there is NO cell signal in the park.
The restaurant is only open on Saturday nights.
This part of the lake needs attention. Green algae way out in to the water.
The putt putt course had caution tape all around it. The pool was closed. The roads are not in good shape. No picnic tables at the sites. Odd layouts for hookups. You could tell at one time this park could have been a destination with lots to do, but it's worn and thread bare now.
Be very careful driving in and leaving as the road is basically single lane with ditches right on the edge.
Why did we stay here? The park where we wanted to stay was full, and we needed to be in the area. We would not stay here again - if we needed to be in the area & could not get our preferred park, we'd stay farther away & drive more. - 3catstravel

RV Park is set back away from traffic, very very quiet, sites are spacious, cable with zillion channels, long termers are nice, water front sites are for overnites in summer, but river view still there for other sites inside rows. Staff are excellent, Joy in particular!! Pool is nice, marinas on the river, with boat rentals and cabin rentals. I had a problem with a work contract there in Chatanooga and the manager was gracious enough to give me a refund, they didn't have to do that, but they did. Sure the geese are around but all you have to do is hose down your site, they stay on the river and come ashore to walk around. Some of the sites don't yet have the new cable connections in but the staff are in the process of completing this. All in all its a great place with mountains on each side of the marina, so cell coverage is scanty, but I had no problem with their WIFI and I was pretty far back, its an issue they try to work on constantly. I definitely will try to come back just to relax!! - Ms Mary
