2 Parks near Baileyton, Tennessee
Oct 2015 - $27.00
Lovely, lovely park; spacious sites are well maintained with level, gravel pads. Park is convenient to I-81 yet far enough that road noise was not a problem (and we slept with the windows open). As others mentioned, many of the sites are occupied long term but the park is well managed and there was no noise or debris about. The park features a beautifully landscaped, two acre pond presided over by both white and black swans (it had been decades since I'd last seen a black swan) and Canada geese were migrating thru when we were there. The pond has catch-and-release fishing and there is a small playground nearby. The laundry has 3 and 3 washer/dryers ($1.50 each). We received 6 television stations over the air so we did not try the cable service. WiFi was fine for email/Facebook; we did not attempt to stream video. We did not use the bathrooms but I peeked in just for this review. Bathrooms were clean but, as other reviewers mentioned, there was no toilet paper.
We definitely will stay here whenever we are in the area. - Mom_of_Two

Ok for a night or two. Seasonals dominate the park but seemed quiet when I was there. Nice large pond for fishing. Wifi seemed ok to good. Bathrooms were hot, cramped and door did NOT lock.
Quiet at night with little light pollution. - mynyel

I give Around the Pond RV Park a 3 out of 10stars. They don't keep toilet paper in their 3 bathrooms (MAKE SURE to take your own). They have WiFi but it is spotty at best. I have stayed here multiple times over the past few months due to field work on a telecom project but I will be looking for somewhere else. There is no one ever in the office (always closed) and you are lucky if they make it around to you to collect payment. I do a lot of my work online, hence the reason I look for somewhere that provides WiFi. I don't know if they changed services, but when I stayed here before the WiFi service was pretty good. Now every time I try to send an email or look up some info online it is a crapshoot. Does the email send this time? We shall see. The owners seem pretty nice but they are both fairly old and it looks very difficult for them to get around. Not sure if they are too tech savvy which may explain the lack of WiFi this time around. I heard him get onto someone the other day for parking in the grass and saying that he had invested over $200k in this place. Well, they sure didn't spend that money on toilet paper or upgrading their WiFi. This will be the last time around for me. Just have to find somewhere else more accommodating. The only reason I gave a Bad on Cleanliness is they never seem to stock the bathrooms with toilet paper anymore. Not sure if someone was stealing it but it sucks to really need to go just to find out there is not toilet paper. I always take a backup just in case now. Not saying this is a bad place if you just need a night to spend on your way to somewhere else. Just don't expect too much and you won't be disappointed. - Gregtelecom

Quiet, easy to access campground about a mile off I-81 (you pass their only competitor nearby, which looked OK). Mostly pull-through sites, which make it easy with a 40' motorhome and tow car. They have someone lead you to your site and guide you in. Lots of grass with two medium-size trees between each pull-through site; the back-ins are along a treeline with more shade. Open field on the opposite side, with a driving range.
The well-graveled sites are flat but could be made more level-had to jack the front of our motorhome much higher than I like. The gravel roads have few potholes and no serious ruts despite two days of rain, often heavy. Water pressure was 60 PSI, excellent for a CG. 50 amp clean electrical hookup. Unlike someone a year ago, we found the sites spacious and the trees trimmed properly-I'm a bit sensitive on the subject, having 3 slides. I certainly did not find the sites to be narrow-much more space than at least a dozen I visited this year alone.
The new (we were told) WiFi was excellent, one of the best we've found. Excellent SW view for satellite. A new pool was just installed, and the construction work for the surrounding patio was still in progress while we were there in October 2015.
It appears most of the seasonals are further back in the park. We like that. We didn't use any of the facilities, so no comment beyond they look nice. Folks in the office are quite pleasant. Be aware that TN has a 9.75% sales tax-it eats up your Good Sam savings fast! - ragtop45

Very long gravel sites that are level. Spaces are close together. Lot of permanent campers. Bathroom and showers clean. New owners that are friendly and making improvements including a pool. Some channels on cable was fuzzy and Wi-Fi was strong. Good for an overnighter if in area. - Biggyrat
