7 Parks near Altamont, Tennessee
Aug 2012 - $25.00
This little park off the beaten path truly has a grand view. The owners couldn't be more accommodating, kind, or caring. I hesitate reviewing only because I don't want to give away this private little place on the mountain. I'd like to keep it all to myself. Don't expect resort style amenities, but if you want peace, quiet, and a beautiful view to look at every day, this might be the place to run and hide. Gap Rd can be a bit difficult to maneuver, but to me, it's worth the two miles off the main road. - TaylorShopping

A smaller park with very, very friendly staff. Gravel roads, some concrete sites, pretty level. Pool had lots of kids swimmng. Very shady with many trees, but not a jungle. Water, sewer, 50-amp service, valet trash pick up, cable. - Rick2804

Pretty easy to get to from the interstate. Mostly gravel sites with a number of cement sites. These cost more. Our concrete site was level. Not sure if all the gravel sites were as level. Only stayed one night. Will use CG again when in the area. An okay CG but nothing really special. - msrebel

We couldn't level the coach at the first site without the rear tires lifting off the ground. We asked to be moved to one of the concrete pads and had no problems leveling. The staff was exceptionally helpful. These sites have separate concrete patios with wrought iron tables. The park is easily accessed from I-24 and there is a bit of highway noise but nothing RVers aren't used to. Too many trees to get satellite but cable and WiFi worked well. There are a ton of things for kids to do at this park and even a place for outdoor movies. We would return if in the area again. - dickens

Stayed here and lots of permanent campers here. Some well kept others not so much. Your kids can play in the playground but if you have visitors come up they will charge you for each additional kid to play on the playground. Even if the visitors don't stay over night. Lots of exposed wiring hanging around and needs a code inspector to pay a visit. - johngi01

This park was a great find. It is a lakeside setting in a remote area near Manchester, TN. They can accommodate big rigs as sites are up to 60 ft long. Sites are back-in or pull through. Although they only have water/electric currently at sites, they have been approved to add sewer to the park sites. They have a dump station and laundry. A commissary, BX, and golf course are a short drive away. You can rent a boat, kayak, fishing pole, or similar gear at the recreation office for a reasonable cost. Wifi and tv/satellite can be marginal depending upon your location. There are a lot of trees to interfere with a sat signal. Overall a good value for $12 a night or $300 a month.
Call the park prior to arriving to make a reservation and learn your site number. After arriving you have to unhook and go to the recreation office, which is several miles away, to check-in. Your credit card will be charged when you make the reservation. - sarge 19

Fairly tight roads leading through park. Can be very difficult to back into sites due to trees and posts. A few sites are advertised as "drive thru" but that can be deceiving. Our site was supposed to be a "drive thru" but it had a fire pit in the middle of the drive. I inquired about moving the empty fire pit two feet so I could drive in but was told "absolutely not". The employee told me "it was my problem" on how to get my trailer into the site. Had to back my 5th wheel up a steep incline that caused the trailer to almost hit the top rail of the truck bed. The bathroom was old but clean. Nice location on lake but you need to be very aware of the site you pick if you have a rig over 26 ft. Satellite reception is possible depending on the site. No problem with Verizon phone service. The park WiFi worked well. About 6-7 miles from I-24. Not really convenient. Probably would not stay here again due to uncertainty associated with trees and site locations. - Alaska Jim

Typical military hassle of going through a gate to get to the registration desk three miles down the road. Check-in at 2 pm, check-out is at 10 am. Swimming pool is not in the CG, but there is a swim area in the lake with nice sandy beach. The whole CG is filled with mature shade trees. The showers/latrines are typical no-frills concrete structures. Pull through sites are marked from the wrong side, but we had no problem maneuvering our 29' MH with Ford Ranger in tow. - Full-Time Roamers

This park was okay. Not too bad... but nothing to great either. We stayed here 5 nights then moved on to Florida. The sites were nice and big, but the restrooms needed updated and cleaned. We loved the park and the trails with various waterfalls. The workers were not very friendly at all. I could see that this would be good for an overnight stop, but staying a week was not what we expected. - kmeece

Pretty disappointed. Old Stone Fort state park is a beautiful place, however the campground is in serious need of updating. Maybe it's a budget issue? Price reflected winter/senior discount. Note that during the winter there are no shower facilities. Ten minutes to town and shopping. Be careful on the extremely narrow bridge that leads to the campground. Paved roads. Paved, level sites. Some sites were tight, and could be a challenge for big rigs. No problem for our 23' Class C. No wi-fi. Utility connections very old but worked. Dump station available as you leave the campground. Trash cans available throughout the campground. Restrooms serviceable, but old and in need of update. No shower facilities in winter season. No laundry facility. Good cell coverage via AT & T. Those with a satellite dish might not have coverage due to the trees. Given some attention, maintenance and updating, the Old Stone Fort campground could be an awesome place. - tomnorman457

Stopped here for an overnight and a chance to walk around the historic ruins. The campground is a series of tight loops in a heavily wooded area. I don't know how those folks with the fifth wheels and big Class A's managed to stuff themselves In a spot - we had a heck of time parking our little 27' MH into a site. Had to jockey around several sites before we could find one to fit into. It didn't help that other campers park their vehicles in the loop road, as the sites are too small to fit both a trailer and a truck. After managing to get ourselves situated, we checked into the Visitor Center to register. There we encountered the World's Crankiest Ranger. She refused to offer any information about the park, we had to beg for trail maps, and registering was an unpleasant ordeal. Let's hope it will be her day off when you visit.
The park's museum is tiny and bare bones. Most of the historic information can be gleaned from the excellent signage on the loop trail, which points out the significance of the sites. There is a splendid, easy trail that runs alongside the two rivers which surround the hilltop mounds. You can see lovely rapids and waterfalls along the way. Not sure I would visit again though, solely due to the tight campground roads. - Flying Mantis

Sites are long but close to trees. I have 3 slides and no problem just have to park in right spot. Power on 50 amps is low 105 amps on one leg. Power flickered several times and power panel was hot to the touch. Owner says no problem this happens all the time when it is hot. Lovely spot in the country side but for $40 I would like better power. There is a pool and playground equipment for kids. Owners very friendly and helpful. - slick60

Located about 2 miles from interstate via narrow, but manageable roads. Careful with GPS. My Android gave me the right directions. The Apple had me turning into a home's driveway. Call for directions. Look for the red barn near the park's entrance.
Owner met us at entrance and pointed to our site. Sites aren't really marked, but a work camper helped us. Sites are level grass and narrow, but long so unhooking isn't necessary. Beware of the trees. Hook ups were appropriately placed although a longer sewer hose would be needed if you don't want to unhook. No cable, OTA, or wifi. Verizon worked. Only 30 amp. Water had a sulfur smell and pressure was low.
Park has a pool, playground equipment, and a very large grassy field for outdoor fun.
No laundry. Didn't use restrooms, but the building looked a little shabby from the outside.
Word of caution: I Googled the park. There's another park two hours away with the same name except it's for males and it's clothing optional. I finally found the Whispering Oaks in Manchester, and the owner told me the name similarity has been a problem for them. Ask if the resort is family friendly before booking if that's your preference.
This rustic park is a little ways off the freeway, but it's less expensive than the corporate rip offs nearby. Good for overnight and probably for a few days as there are many attractions nearby.
Many permanents so book in advance for a transient spot. - User3617

This is not a luxury resort. This is a lovely spot in the woods away from the interstate. Sites are spacious and flat. Utilities are basic. WiFi is OK. Peace and quiet is the main attraction. Wanted to stay a few days but we were on a tight schedule. - mutiny court
