We were here during one of their Halloween weekend events. Stayed on site 56, which has a deck. Very nice site. Backs up to the jumping pillow and park. Great site if you have kids with you. Nice pool area, however it was closed for the season. Excited to visit again. Thanks for a great long weekend. Concrete slabs would be great instead of the gravel but this doesn't keep me from returning. Park is well maintained. - Tony_Tammy

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

The only reason I'm not giving this place a 10 is the lack of 50amp power. The sites are level and wide. You have a choice of two campgrounds. One is open and the other is more back in the woods. Both are easy to get around in. Lots of things to see and do. There is a nice restaurant down the road from the park called The Canyon Grill. This place is very expensive. Our internet, phones and satellite worked great here. - chub

This Park is breathtaking with the fall foliage. The canyon and hikes are worth the trip alone. The camping sites are well spaced out, especially on the West Rim. The bathrooms were clean, people picked up after their dogs, it was quiet well before the specified quiet time, and the general store was well stocked. A+ - Manatina

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

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

Interior roads were packed gravel. Sites had level gravel/grass pads with good spacing and utilities placed at the back. At our site, the water spigot was tight against the power pedestal so I could not use my Y adapter. Others were not placed the same. Sites had a grassy area with picnic table and fire ring/grill. They have NO recycle container. There was no noise at all. WiFi coverage was excellent as was Verizon Cell coverage. - FreeWheeler

It is at the end of the road through a housing development. WiFi worked well cable TV worked generally good. - hotpepperkid99

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

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

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

This campground is our stop off point any time we head from Kentucky toward Atlanta. Nice fenced dog run. Clean facilities and neat. Full time campers very neat and hard to distinguish in most cases. Dollar Store convenient across the street. Easy drive to Lookout Mtn. During rain season, best to request a site in front of park. Some of the back sites have drainage problems in hard rain. - busyteach

A great stopping place whether traveling thru or visiting the area. Easy access, friendly staff and super clean restrooms. Open year round. - hug448844

Nice campground with all pullthroughs. We could not get the 50 amp but the 30 amp provided what we needed. Wifi iffy. Cable great. Nice people that were very helpful. Dog park gave our pup some exercise. Will be staying there again. Due to fire potential due to lack of rain, no campfires allowed. - GailMOH

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights while visiting Chattanooga. I needed to renew my Good Sam card so I did that here and got one free night.
It is better then I expected. It is in a wooded section with shade. The sites are full hook up with a good selection of cable TV. Outside is a gravel pad and roads with a small concrete patio and a picnic table with a decent amount of space between sites. This is not a "destination" campground but great for visiting the area. I had no problems with check in. It is close to the highway so you do hear some road noise. It is within walking distance to a grocery store and a little bit farther is Bass Pro Shop. I would come back here again if I am seeing the sites in this area. - younglisa

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
