We stayed here for 6 nights and really enjoyed our stay. This campground is a few minutes off of I59 but still very convenient to Chattanooga. The owners take a lot of pride as it is clean and the well taken care of. The bath houses are very clean but could use some modernization. If we are in the area again, we will definitely stay here again. - theengle

We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend with our daughter and 3 granddaughters ages 6,6, and 11. We chose this CG due to the proximity to our home & the amount of activities for the kids as this was their first camping experience. The staff was very nice and accommodating and the CG has a salt water pool, gem mining, jumping pillow and hiking trails. It is a bit off the main highway, but a nice quiet location, especially for touring Chattanooga. The TV had only 10 channels and the wifi was so-so. It was obvious that the owners take pride in keeping the grounds neat. We enjoyed our stay here. - quilt lady

Campground was ok for an overnight. Pretty good ride from interstate but well marked, just follow the signs. We had a pull thru site but was blocked by someone who came in late and parked in a pull thru that blocked us from hooking up our truck. With a lot of maneuvering we were able to hook up and back out of our site. Very limited cable channels. Quite a few full timer there. We would stay again but in a different site. - southernsky

WOW: one of our favorite Georgia parks for a variety of reasons. Breezes and lower temperatures will greet you at this altitude. Refreshing in the heat of summer. You have your choice of the East Rim Campground or West Rim Campground.
East Rim sites have no privacy but are close to the canyon and Interpretive Center. Our preference, the West Rim, is outstanding. Spacious, clean, private sites set amongst the trees with trails that drop down to the West Rim right from many of the campsites. Most sites are level and have electric and water. Dump station is down the road outside the campground. Picnic Tables and Grills at each site.
CG roads and backing into site can be challenging for Class A's and truck/trailers although there are pull-thru sites. Bring in all your supplies. The visitor center is not a well stocked camp store. Camp hosts that work in the visitor centers are most helpful and friendly just as they are when they make their rounds of the CG. You can purchase firewood from the Camp Hosts after 5:00. The hikes/views are incredible. If here on the weekend take advantage of the Sunset Stroll with the Ranger. Or, how about a round of Disc Golf at the course that's in the park! They also offer Cave Exploration. Booked for 3 nights, stayed an extra 2 nights: outstanding! - Breezy2

Overall this is a good camp ground. It is really close to a lot of attractions in Chattanooga, and the campground has great trails. The views are beautiful and can only imagine how amazing it will be in the fall. There are two camping areas. For us, we liked the west rim. Sites are much larger, has more trees and feels a lot more private. A few things they could improved on are the roads. They are very narrow with drop offs on the sides. This makes backing in some of the sites very difficult. Also for some reason we don't understand, the dump station for the west rim is not near the camp ground. It's a couple miles away on a very hilly, twisty road. The east rim's dump station is near, so for that side it is not a problem. The bathhouse for the west rim are very small and old. We will camp here again. - sunny3014

We chose the East Rim as it is close to the canyon/waterfall trails and overlooks. Most of the sites are good size, gravel pads, nice picnic table, some are shaded. Some sites have terraces with woods behind. We really liked Site 55. The East Rim sites are more open and you can see your neighbors. The restroom is clean but very outdated and (showers especially) were very small - not ADA compliant. You have to go to the West rim for ADA facilities. West Rim sites are shadier and more spacious.
The trail down to the waterfalls is definitely worth doing (even though there are 600 steps total, they are spaced far enough apart, that coming back up wasn't bad at all. Not much around so have all your supplies before going into park, although there is a gas station, cafe and little shop not far from entrance. - On the Road again 11

Pros: Beautiful scenery, quiet (ok, trains across the lake rumbled some), on water, nice beach, excellent playground for the kids, clean and neat, LOTS of trash cans. Cons: WiFi only in a hotspot near office, no cable, Over the Air TV spotty, sites not all easily leveled. This is a TVA sponsored campground. We've stayed at a similar one last year and this one seems to have the same issue: they cater to seasonals or LONG term rentals. When you see a lot of campers with insulated water hoses in June with temps in the 90's, you get to understand that those who want to come for a weekend or even a week's stay may have a tough time getting in. There are NO reservations. Hmmm, so once in, guess you just stay. Yeah, they have weekly, monthly, and seasonal rates. IF you can get in it is a lovely place. We took a chance, and to be fair, when I called and talked to the manager, she said to call on our way up and she would confirm if a space was available. The campground itself if nice; the policy of favoring long term stays is disheartening. - Too-wow

Clean, friendly folks with some long term "residents" with easy access from exit 158 of I 24, with a boat ramp, playground and a beautiful setting. The access is via a TVA road with the entrance on the left of Shellmound Road. Once in a while there is a bit of noise from a railroad across the lake and a boat. Very peaceful. - DelK

I understand the previous manager past away recently and the current management is terrible. No instructions where to register. Poorly maintained. bathrooms /showers are atrocious and no supplies. Trash left in fire rings and in the water. Will no use this facility in the future. - rvreviewer2015

Love this park, Close to I-24, right on the Tn River. Well marked and level sites. No picnic table. Great value. Just wish county would up grade comfort station. Will be back. - pink poodle

Very close to the interstate - a lot of road noise day and night. No laundry. Goose droppings everywhere. Friendly enough staff. The lake is pretty. We would not stay here again. - User3099

We were very pleased with the park & staff. The only problem we had
was the site was not perfectly level, but were able to pull up on blocks
to level easily. - Captain Hook

Friendly, concerned staff. There was a severe weather warning while we were there and the staff notified every camper that we should go to the nearby cave (walking distance) if necessary. Trash was picked up at the site often and the entire campground was clean. We used the laundry and found it clean and reasonable. Conveniently located to Lookout Mountain and downtown. Would definitely stay there again. Good value. - Rimdel

We stayed ten days in a 39' RV with family staying in Cabin #1. Site was level, water and electricity no problem. Site was a bit small, and was in what should have been the continuation of a roadway, so folks were frequently cutting through.
When we made reservations in October, they advertised go-karts, mini-golf and a clubhouse, the primary reasons we choose to go there with two young children. None of these amenities were available during our stay.
Office staff were unfriendly. I was clearly bothering her each time I went into the office, and she did as little as possible, all three times, to answer questions or help. This was especially irritating as they removed all the trash receptacles mid-week, without notice, and we didn't know what to do with our trash.
I would take my business elsewhere given an option. - Sheryl 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

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

We were here for 2 nights on our way to PA and enjoyed our visit. We were in a pull-through site and it was very nice. This campground is close to several grocery stores and restaurants. It is just off I-75 with easy access to the campground. The site had plenty of space for our 43 ft Class A coach and our tow vehicle. There are 4 lanes for registration and each of these lanes is long enough for 2 motorhomes towing. This makes unhooking the tow very easy at the registration area. We will return when in the area. - John & Bobbie

This is an excellent park. Easy access from I-75. Close to downtown Chattanooga and all attractions. Interior roads and sites are well maintained gravel with concrete patio and picnic table. Sites are level with some shade. WiFi is mostly good with occasional drops. The office staff was EXTREMELY helpful. We were having a problem with one slide and they gave us the name of the nearby Camping World asst. service manager so we could arrange for someone to come to us in the park to fix the problem. We would definitely stay here again. - dickens

Pretty nice campground. Actually in Georgia less than a mile from state line. Sites a little close together but manageable. Restrooms nice. Kept clean and are air conditioned. Mostly quiet but on some nights there is a racetrack close by and it gets pretty noisy. Sometimes all the way up till midnight. Pool is nice. Close to all the sightseeing areas. It's located pretty much in a residential area so it's not an out in the boonies campground. Good change. Would stay here again if returned here to vacation. - d1h

This park is adjacent to a Camping World store and is first come, first serve, without reservations. We stopped here on our way back from the Pigeon Forge area to cut our drive time down. Check-in is in the Camping World store. Park in the RV parking area and walk to the checkout area of the store. WiFi is available only in the lounge sea of the store. Salespeople were eager and happy to help us. The park is a little tight for parking and maneuvering. It's clearly made for passers-through; there is virtually no outside living space. The park is shady. There are a fair amount of long term stay patrons but there were plenty of open sites when we stopped in. The cable is great but our 30 amp site throws the breaker more often than expected. We were pleasantly surprised at the availability, considering we arrived on the Thursday before the 4th of July weekend. We loved that we could just shorten our road trip and pull in here for a night. It was better than expected. - AGCampingCrew

Don't get all the negative reviews of this place. It's 1 mile off I-75 on the Tenn / GA line outside Chattanooga. We got what we expected, a simple campground to spend one night, which has full hook-ups. The roads inside were easy to move our 45-footer around, but a few of the spaces tight. But not a problem. Good power, water pressure, and easy reachable sewer. We arrived after Camping World had closed, so we had no reservation. The wife ran around the park in the toad, found a spot and radioed me to come in. Didn't even have the engine shut-down yet and the camp host was there to greet us. Yes, she's a little rough around the edges, but she runs a tight ship and treated us great with clear instructions. She even called the next day to ask how our stay was. A fair amount of permanent units in the park, but no problems, and things well-kept up. We'll definitely stay here again for a stop-over in the area. - RVThatFamily

We were here to have repairs done and we were happy to have a regular RV park to stay in. No charge if you are there for service. The park will flood if there is A LOT of rain. We arrived right after an evacuation so it was messy and very wet. FHU and cable. Trees for shade. Nice area to walk dogs. Service was excellent. Employees were friendly and helpful. Will stay again if in the area. - Travel4
