New management at this park as of a couple of months ago. Prices have gone up a bit. Helpful staff, clean and tidy facilities. $2 per load for laundry. Level sites are a bit closely spaced. Wifi excellent. We would stay here again. We camped at Lakeview RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Lots of good shopping.

Rate is passport, incl tax. Level gravel sites, good utilities, outstandingly clean. This park was Tennessee's Park of the Year in 2013, and it shows. We camped at Lakeview RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park was voted the best in TN in previous years. It is easy to access from the interstates and easy to get around in. The back-in gravel lots are fairly level and large enough for slides and awnings. The utilities worked well and they have cable and good Wi-Fi. There is a pool and snack shop. They are a Passport America campground and if you ask you probably can get a local camper discount for the non-Passport America discount days. The host are very friendly and helpful. We would stay here again. We camped at Lakeview RV Park in a Motorhome.

We wish we had read the earlier reviews more carefully before stopping at this park for an overnight stay. As other members posted, it is multi-tiered, very difficult to read street/gravel road signs. (Some were leaning and not legible.) It is difficult to find your site because it seems that the back-ins are mixed in with the pull-throughs. It was hard to find the site numbers. We watched a fellow RVer accidentally run over a sewer connection, and we could understand how it could happen. We have Good Sam. We were told that we would be charged for the space, then they would enter our discount. That didn't make sense to us, but that is how it showed up on our Visa. It is in a beautiful location. If just a little work were done on the things mentioned in the earlier reviews, and what we just posted, this would be a place we would stay again. It's possible that the owners don't have to do much, because the same RVers return again and again, so no need to repair signs, sites etc. We camped at Lakeview RV Park in a Motorhome.

Above average park but no shade at all. It's pretty much just a multi-tier elevation parking lot with some grass strips in between the gravel lots. Wi-Fi is great and staff is great. The flea market across the street is HUGE! If you like that sort of thing it's well worth the stop. We've stayed here twice and we met some fantastic people with some world class BBQ just a few minutes away. We'll definitely try to get back during racing season to experience all of Bristol. We camped at Lakeview RV Park in a Motorhome.

Pros: E-Z access to Interstate Nice personnel On site snackbar that delivers to your site Strong wi-fi signal (at our site) Cheap for 50A Full Hook Up Site. Flea Market across the street. Good base for local fly fishing. NHRA Nationals were on. You could feel some of the cars; only 4 seconds at a time. Cons: Gravel sites are dusty Narrow sites. Our picnic table was located behind the trailer in the next site. My awning was 3' away from their trailer. NO SHADE. Make sure you face North in your site. Water pressure would not go over 40 psi. NHRA Nationals were on.You could feel some of the cars; only 4 seconds at a time. Neighbors power kept cutting off. Overall, not a real impressive park, at least after reading how wonderful it was. We camped at Lakeview RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate reflects average 5 nights Passport America, 2 nights discounted regular. We like this park for our area interests although the park environment is not really special. People are friendly, snack bar is good, pool is refreshing, Wi-fi is good, flea market is always interesting and busy. We take our dog to Winged Dear Park where she can swim in nice water with us (on leash) so this is an added bonus. Nice quiet park and great for NASCAR races if you get reservations early. We camped at Lakeview RV Park in a Motorhome.

Our fee reflects a Passport America rate. Lakeview RV is everything that their web site says it is. It is a five tiered layout and most sites ( all crushed gravel ) offer a view of Boone Lake/South Holston River. It appears that many of the campers are long-termers and why not, it is one of the better campgrounds (arguably the best) within a 25 mile radius. Might be a good campground for a rally group but confirm ( and re-confirm ) your reservations. Ours were not logged in apparently with our first reservation call. We just sold our Tennessee home of 30 years and needed a convenient 2 day layover before we pushed on so Lakeview was perfect. However, don’t plan on a quiet relaxing stay during their race/special weeks. Six night & seven days during the Bristol Race can cost as much as $590 for a 35x50 full hookup site with Wi-Fi and cable TV, and the area becomes one large traffic jam. The road out front was busy during a regular weekend and during a race – it gets crazy busy. There appears to be a large swap meet right across from the campground. Their Wi-Fi can be everything from excellent to just so-so. There are lots of nearby restaurants & shopping and even RV dealers – everything you’d expect from a “big city” area. Their bathrooms are individual rooms and would inadequate in number if the sites were not all full hookup and the campers weren’t all mostly self-contained camper units. Their dog walk area is across the street, beside the river and at the lowest level. I did note that no attention was paid to their fire pits (needed cleaning out) and their site tables are old and kinda small. We would use this facility again if in the area. We camped at Lakeview RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stopped here overnight. Rate reflects 50 amp and Good Sam discount. Park appears to be fairly new. There are no trees, sites are gravel. Many sites appear to be permanently occupied. Easy access off the interstate. We camped at Lakeview RV Park in a Motorhome.

Great place. Clean, orderly, looks fairly new. Friendly, helpful check-in. $19 for 50 amp FHU (PA rate). Lake view. Nice pet walk along lakeshore. Boat/fishing docks, canoes and paddle boats available. Cable and strong Wi-Fi – a real pleasure compared to what we've had at the last few stops. Well maintained gravel roads and campsites. Not many trees, but adequate grassy areas. Terraced down toward the lake. Will make a point of coming back. We camped at Lakeview RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate reflects our monthly rate. It doesn't get any nicer than this. Sure, there may be other campgrounds with fancier "amenities" and "resort" type features, but as far as campgrounds go, Lakeview is TOPS in most areas. The staff are the nicest of any campground we have ever stayed at (we are full timers, so we have experience with a wide variety of campgrounds). The sites are all easy to level in and hookup in. The rates are fantastic. The view is beautiful....I could go on an on. Bottom line, if your camping brings you anywhere near here, there is only one option for which park to book, in my opinion! We lived here 4-1/2 months this year before getting back out on the road (I was working in the area) and loved every minute of it. We will definitely stay here again when we are back in the area. We camped at Lakeview RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed for 7 days. The staff was adequate size, friendly, and accommodating, and there was a nice office with store. Walking ease is 7/10 because of some hills; gravel roads. Pool is saltwater. Playground is basic. General park ambiance was mediocre. There's a view of hills and lake on some sites. The park is in a central location for the tri-cities; 9 miles to each city. Noise level is good with no highway sound. No active train tracks close by. No shaded sites makes for a hot stay in summer months. Distance to food store and shopping is 2 miles. Distance to medical help is good. Urgent care - 3 mi. Hospital - 11 mi. Vet. - 2 mi. Park access off 4-lane road is good, and they have a well placed park sign. Park roads are aggregate & wide. Landscaping and grounds maintenance is only fair. Premium sites only have views. Trash removal is at your site anytime during daylight hours. Great for folks with pets. Restrooms were clean. Wi-fi was free, fast & reliable except in the evenings. I use a booster. No password required. Cable TV was good. Satellite view is perfect at most sites. Cell phone strength with AT&T was 3 bars without booster. Water pressure was low at 30psi on my site #35, but two sites share one connection. Not cool! My site size was not spacious and was paved with gravel. Cost was $28.50/night with the weekly rate and FMCA discount. Permanent residents represented estimated 15% of total sites. We generally had a good feeling about our stay here. We felt safe. Busy place, great staff, nice family atmosphere. We will come back to this campground. We are 65+ with two small dogs. Be aware that the park sells out during the Bristol races nearby. Park has grill/restaurant on site for sandwiches and light meals. We camped at Lakeview RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park is within 30 minutes of our home, but with my spouse out of town, it was a good one-night getaway for my 89-year-old father (who'd never been camping) and 4-year-old grandson (who's an old pro). Staff is really friendly and helpful. The park is mostly gravel, but it's plenty spacious with good size sites, most of which appeared level. Being a short visit, there were amenities we didn't utilize, though the grandson certainly enjoyed the pool. Had we stayed longer and had the weather necessitated it, the lack of shade others mention might have been a negative, but as it was, it went unnoticed. I'm not sure how often we'd tend to be back here, considering its proximity, but were it more of a "trip," this is one park I'd visit again. We camped at Lakeview RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is an average campground that is an easy in and out from I-81. It has a little 'grill' for breakfast and lunch Fri-Sun. The sites were wide gravel mostly level. Grass strips between sites. Office staff was very nice and check in was smooth and easy. Fee shows Good Sam discount. Didn't use the showers or baths so can't comment there. My only negative besides it being like a parking lot with lots of gravel and little grass was the lack of enforcement of pet pick up. Our site was covered with 'deposits'. Even though we covered most of them with the motorhome, it was disgusting and smelly. It was obvious it was used by the regulars for their dog walk area. For that reason alone we will most likely not return. We camped at Lakeview RV Park in a Motorhome.
