Stayed here in our 21' Travel Trailer and this place was about what we expected. It is very out of the way, in the amazingly large and beautiful Big South Fork National River Recreational Area. This is one of the two main NPS campgrounds in the area and it is more out of the way and I suspect a little less maintained.
As other reviewers have stated, the facilities are a little older and in need of some TLC. Also, many of the sites don't have a lot of shade. The park was fairly full as we were there on a weekend, though no problems with noise. We reserved online and there was a sign on our site with our name saying reserved when we arrived. We got there late in the day and were there two days and never interacted with staff or camp hosts.
We did have a small issue with our 30amp breaker tripping with AC running when my wife microwaved something. We haven't ever had this issue before, so I'm not sure if there was an issue with our site's power. Site's water spigot didn't want to stay on even with the diverter pulled down. Used a bungee cord wrapped around the handle to keep the water flowing.
Overall, we would stay here again as it is cheap and in a beautiful area, this park could become a real gem with a little love. - sjeuck

This park isn't for everyone, but we were here to visit the Bartel Mine (excellent tour BTW), kayak the Big South Fork and lay over a holiday weekend, somewhere without a huge hassle and lots of noise.
This fit the bill. Clean, well-patrolled by park rangers, and plenty of shade. Very nice mostly back-in and level spots with easy, accessible hook-ups. Hosts were friendly and very helpful. - kharmaquest

When we first got to the campground we weren't impressed. It was smaller than we thought it would be and kind of outdated, but as the day went on we liked it more.Check in was by self or campground host. It was very quiet (especially for a holiday weekend) and people were friendly. We stayed for 2 days and spent them sightseeing or hiking various trails. If we are in the area we would stay again to hike,but we wouldn't make this a main vacation point. Checking out was easy and the dump station was very easy to use.Overall,we had a good camping experience. - kycamper02

We have a 24 foot van and these are extremely small spaces length wise. Width wasn't so bad in the space and it is nice in the forest but so surprised how small and very little space to back your RV in to spot. - Scooterd16

Originally had site # RV23, Arrived to a packed campground, unable to back into our site and had to be moved to a "walk up" site. Park is old. Sites are very very small cannot even fit a 20FT TT. Sites are very uneven. The area attraction itself is not taken care of. Cumberland Falls is the area attraction and there is trash everywhere you look. I would look elsewhere for a spot to stay. The staff are friendly enough for a state park but this place needs updated or put on the map as a tent location ONLY. No RV should have to squeeze in here. - jonk90

Sites very close and very small. Water and electric hookups while there, are between 50 and 75 feet from pad. We have a 24.5' 5vr - and the 30' pad really was 21', and the back end of the trailer would've been left hanging and unsupported over the cliff. Perhaps a great site for very small TT, popups and tent camping - but not suitable, at all for other than that. Great camp hosts and friendly folks. - KB Farms

Campsites are not level and are grass and dirt. The setting is very nice - the lake was pretty low when we were there. The staff is very nice. There is a playground for kids. This would be a nice destination park for kids and families visiting Cumberland Falls State Park. - Bearpup

Small campground but very nice, level, gravel sites. Camped during the off season of the water park so it was not full, but I imagine it is full during the summer months when the water park is open. All back in sites except for 1 pull through site. Made reservations online but then switched sites when we arrived to a site that had a better stream view. Fairly peaceful and quiet. - ForzaDude

Rather than repeat what we have previously said, please see our earlier review of this campground July, 2015. Since this campground is small, only about 18 sites, during the summer months (June-August) you should plan on making a reservation as far ahead as possible as they fill up on weekends. The campground has recently added a really nice bath house adjacent to the campground, rather than having to go over to the water park facilities as in the past. Also, there is a full time campground host, an employee of the water park, on site. If you use satellite service we suggest that you review the park layout on Google Maps to select an appropriate site as there are very large/tall trees along the southern end of the campground. We really enjoy the spacious sites, peace and quiet and accommodating host, at this small park and will certainly plan on another stop over on our next trip up the nearby I-75 corridor. - Johnson's

Great campground! So nice to stay here and visit the park. The camp host was very nice. Ask for a site that's in the middle. We stayed in the first site, and although it's a great campground, the site was right next to the parking lot for Kentucky Splash, so it was a bit loud at times. I would stay here time and time again if I lived closer. - Thisguyfromohio

Nice size for big rigs. Close to the Cumberland Falls. White water rafting trip is very easy for all ages, it's no where near the rides I've taken on other rivers. Very nice area just to drive around and hike the many trails in the park. We also did the horseback tour next door through the woods and had some great views and photo ops.
Only pull through sites have full hookup, but there is a dump station by the office for the rest of the sites the are water and electric only. Same owner here since 1985. - Oceanblue

The RV sites are very basic. This is a hikers or white water rafting paradise. They have recently added RV facilities and these will get better. They offer shuttle service to the various hiking locations. It is the best place to stop if you have a big rig and want to visit Cumberland Falls State park as the park is not "Big" rig friendly. Shade is limited and sites are gravel. - A hitch and hop

Wow what a great state park! We ended up staying 6 days we enjoyed it so much. First in site 4 which is a handicap site and fully paved, has a shade tree and overlooks the lake. Just beautiful. Then in site 44 which backs to the trees where we watched the deer. On most sites the picnic table sits on a separate concrete pad from your camper. Management takes real pride in this park and it shows. Lots of mowed grass and was a great place for dogs. There were 4 different playgrounds. A 1 mile paved walking/running path by the lake which was very nice. Bathhouse is updated and clean. Good Verizon and satellite TV. One of the downsides is that the road that goes through the park is used by the locals (those are the sites on the lake). The other is that the concrete at the non-handicap sites are not set up for class A motorhomes with the door in the front because they are wider at the back of the site. That is great for trailers and smaller rigs but not big class A motorhomes. Other than that we really did love this place and would stay again. - thekites

Very clean and maintained park. If you camp there stay in the outer loop. We figured out why we were about the only ones on the main road by the lake. They have 2 entrances and it reminded me of A & W and Frishes where people would go in one drive and out the other. It was a steady stream of traffic flying by and a lot of the same cars. Not a good place for kids. - george 2

Park is a beautifully reclaimed strip mine with a large lake with some sites bordering lake, others on another loop. Mountains surround. Sites nicely spaced with mostly level concrete pads and patio. Four bathhouses in park, the one by lake new, clean, with tan/brown tile. Hot showers. Grounds well mowed healthy grass, nice scattered older trees and many new planted. Rental kayaks and paddle board. Friendly staff. Lots of walking paths and bikers. Nicest TN state park I have stayed at, really exceptional. - 210jem

Peaceful and quiet park, electric/water only (some 50A), direct access to hiking trails and short drive to many more. We stayed in sight B11 and were able to lock on to satellite from our rooftop system from this site.
Park entry is from Leatherwood Rd and I cannot stress strongly enough that big rigs should approach along a west to east route from Jamestown. Do not attempt to take the route from Oneida to the campground unless you just want to test your skills on off camber switchbacks with close rock outcroppings. I am not saying it can't be done as I am sure many frequent users know the proper line to take to navigate it. If you are visiting for the first time in a 40 foot plus rig arriving at dusk in the rain, heed my advice.
We stayed a week and had one of the three loops to ourselves. I am not a horse person, but this place is set up well for that. We bought firewood from the park's self-serve near horse barn #4. The leaves were changing the first week of November and it was a beautiful place. Recommend to wear bright colors if hiking this time of year as hunters are in the woods. - Gpndavid

This is a beautiful park with lots of hiking trails. Clean, well maintained. Spacious sites; definitely a top 5 for us. Only cons: there's only 3 50A sites (Poor connection on the 50A at our site); no sewer hookups so bring a tote for a long weekend. Dump site at the entrance. - joshjack

Bandy Creek is a beautiful, extremely well maintained park with numerous RV sites, most were shady. Nice clean rest rooms and showers are situated in all three RV camping areas. W&E were conveniently located at each site. Large gravel picnic area with fire ring, table and lantern hook. Parking pads were fairly level. After 5 registration was easy; pick a site and honor system envelopes. - Texas E-S

Third time visiting. This is not a destination campground unless your into off road 4x4's and ATV's. The sites are a simple layout at best with little room on 11ft wide gravel sites. Make sure to use your jack pads and expect concerns if you get heavy rains and driving a big rig. Most GPS's send you to the wrong exit off I-75, take exit 144 and follow signs. The campground has potential but the prices are not supported, unless your bringing your 4x4 and want trail access from the campground, then its priceless. - Mullet Republic LLC

We like to ride ATV's, so this campground was perfect. Over 120,000 acres of trails!! The campground is all ATV riders, most campers were in modified cargo trailers (poor boy toy haulers) The campground was neat and clean, we had full hook ups. They also had a buffet style breakfast and dinners (it was pretty good and cheap). We plan on going back for some more fun. - kjclark

We stayed here for two nights. Winding narrow road for several miles coming into park. No shoulder on the road so drive carefully. This is a gated campground which was nice. They give you a code to get in and out after 5:00pm. The owners are in the process of enlarging the campground and are adding another lake and up to 100 new camping sites with utilities. They own many more treed acres to the east. Very nice people with a great vision for their expansion. We stayed in a pull through site which had a little grass between the sites, along with picnic table and fire pit. There are two playground areas which looked fairly new. Beautiful treed area with small lake. My husband was able to practice his fly fishing. We would stay here again when in the area. - Honalee

The park was a gem of a discovery near Corbin Kentucky. The staff were very helpful and friendly. They shared with us all of their plans to make the park better. Close to the freeway and Corbin, home of Colonel Sanders. Great store and food available at the office. Give them a visit. - vagabon life

As far as an RV park, the facility is not that great, actually probably the worst I've visited. Many if not most of the hookups are on the wrong side of the sites (as is the dump station). One site I looked at had the water hookup at least 30' from the gravel pad, on the opposite side of the picnic area. Many sites are extremely small and extremely slanted. I have a very small (16') camper, and I still don't think I could have leveled it on some of these sites without lifting both tires off the ground. Fortunately it was very cold when I was there, so I had the place to myself and was able to pick the best site. All that being said, there's a lot to recommend this park. The bathhouse was clean and well-maintained. The campground is on a hilltop, with pretty nice views if sparse shade. The lake and cabin area are a short walk from the campground. There's an unusual, interesting bat tower and playground inside main campground loop. Trail access from the campground is excellent, and the trail system is outstanding. If I were rating the park exclusive of the campground, I'd give it a 9 or 10. - Groenlo

We took a 32' Motorhome and found a couple of sites we could use. However, they recommend no more than 25'. This park has hiking trails that are beautiful and a nice pool, within walking distance. The park people are very helpful. - morrison
