The reservation tag had a different name and camphost not available to verify my reservation. I set up anyway and issue resolved when he returned. The roads in the campground are very rough in areas. The sites are basic, nicely spaced and mine was level. Bathrooms were very unkept and I was glad I had shower shoes on. I wish the shower button would stay on for a period of time, it was difficult to get a shower while holding the water button and no way to control the water temperature. I would stay at the campground for convenience but not as a destination spot. We camped at Chewalla Lake Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Not too far south of Memphis for day trip, easy access to highway.

Lightly used Forest Service campground with very spacious sites. There were only a handful of people in the entire park even on a summer weekend. We stayed at one of the $7 primitive sites, but the loop is a very rough drive and only a few of the sites are suitable for a Class B. Lake has a sand beach and swimming access. Area is well patrolled by rangers and a camp host. Bathrooms are average for USFS and could use a good cleaning to cut down on the grime and bugs. We camped at Chewalla Lake Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Bring leveling blocks if planning to boondock at any of the tent sites. Rangers stock free wood at the dump station.

This is a jewel if you like to camp out in nature. The roads are a bit rough, but the few available sites for RV's are very nice, level and well spaced. The camp host is great, he keeps the park clean and is very friendly. We didn't use the bathhouses, but we saw him cleaning them often. It is very quiet, saw squirrel and lots of birds. There are plenty of areas to walk or ride a bike, including a very nice path that winds along the lake from the boat launch to the little island near the swim beach. Plenty of fishing from the banks and a fishing dock at the boat launch area. Holly Springs is about 8-10 miles if you need a restaurant or Walmart, this park is remote, but very quiet and peaceful. We would visit here again when in the area. We camped at Chewalla Lake Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Chewalla Lake is a USFS property. There are not many RV slots but there are many tent sites. The camp host was awesome. He cleaned all the fire rings and even stocked the sites with free firewood. The facility has a lot of room to walk, a small sandy beach by the lake and offers a nice surrounding get away from city life. Primitive comes to mind. I had no problem getting internet with my Verizon Wi-Fi card and phone service as well. Although clean, the bunk house showers could use a good scrubbing/painting. That's why I rated the campground as a 7. Not much wild life but very quiet. The town of Chewalla is very nice and repleat with stuff to do. All in all a good/fair place to camp. We camped at Chewalla Lake Recreation Area in a Motorhome.
