I traveled with my 35' RV which was hard to maneuver on the narrow roads. I stayed on site #24 and if there had been anyone across from me when I arrived I would not have been able to back into my site. I noticed this problem throughout the park. The sites are very close together. If you have a 30' or longer RV I recommend reserving sites 43-54. There was no TV reception which did not bother me but I did notice several people had satellites so I would guess to say they were able to get a signal. The Fish Hatchery is an excellent place to visit especially if you have small kids with you. Most people say the fishing is great there but I had no luck, never got a bite. I would stay again but definitely on row 43-54. - Dwight R
Rate reflects Federal Senior Pass. Verizon signal is strong, both phone & wireless. We were able to get a shaded site that backed up near a clearing, so we got a Dish signal for TV. Our site was too small for a rig the size of ours, and the pine needles falling profusely were a nuisance. Roads are tight, but manageable. The water faucet at our site leaked, causing low water pressure in our rig. We reported it, but no repair. Nice, inexpensive laundry room. Our GPS brought us in on Hwy 90 and 127 from the south, which is very curvy, hilly and narrow. Be sure you stay on the Cumberland Parkway and come in from the north. You can't negotiate the turn off of 127 from the south with a bigger rig. - User1392
Many big rig sites. Ninety percent of sites are level and size stated on website. Large shade trees hamper cell, satellite, and TV service. A fishing paradise for trout below the Dam. Free access to trout hatchery. Excellent playground for small children. Water out of the dam is deep,cold and swift. - Kytravl
Very nice state park campground, but as an earlier review has already mentioned, the campground area has a layout that is not big-rig friendly. We did alright with our 35-footer, but there were only a few sites we would fit our rig. And don't plan on level sites either. But very clean and well maintained park. Lodge had dining room with spectacular lake view, outdoor pool was closed due to a maintenance problem but campers were allowed to use the lodge pool (which is not usually the case) so that was nice. Horseback riding, tennis courts, horseshoe pits, scheduled activities and hiking trails were all available the weekend we were there. Be aware though - the area has lots of ticks! - R.T.
The park is a beautiful piece of property, but the layout of the park is just bizarre. The pads are paved but short, uneven, and placed in odd places. Roads are narrow and not big rig friendly at all. Plan on long runs for water and electric at most sites. Its too bad it has such a funky layout because this place is so pristine. - bugman
We camped late in the season, October 23-25, and the park was almost empty. Beautiful fall foliage and cool temperatures allowed for a wonderful weekend away from the city. Originally our site was #70 with a small deck however there is a smelly dumpster between 70 & 71 so we moved over to site 19 which was great! Plan on long electric and water runs. We were lucky with a 50' hose / used 35' and 25' of electric. Also the majority of sites state slight grade but you should bring extra cribbing to level with. Overall a great park with most of the sites recently updated. Very clean facilities and some of the most beautiful fall colors we have ever witnessed. - lexpedroman
