The campground wasn't crowded at all. It is off season, no races. The sites are on gravel, back to back, FHU, 30 & 50 amp. No other amenities. Great staff. There are some trees. The entrance is tight & it's uphill getting out We camped at Shadrack Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The staff was friendly and accommodating. When we arrived the campground was flooded due to a storm. The staff was moving everyone up to high grounds. After much discussion, I was given a site. I did not get a chance to explore the campground. I left early the next morning. We camped at Shadrack Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed at this campground two separate times while traveling to and from the east coast from Oklahoma. First time: This one was just an overnight stop. They accepted Passport so our stop was cheap. The campground was nearly empty. When I attached to power there was an issue with the power supply. The site behind me was empty so I attached to their pole. Problem solved. The rest of the overnight stay was fine. On the return leg of our trip we intended to stay 3 nights for the NASCAR race weekend. Here we experienced problems. 1. The water connection was on the wrong side. I used all 3 of my 25 foot hoses to make the connection. 2. After 2 nights in our planned 3 night stay the campground was ordered empty because of flooding. They had a few higher in elevation water and electric only sites they were moving people to. However, there were way too few of these to accommodate the campers. 3. During race weekends they don't just not accept discounts they GREATLY raise their prices. Race weekends are priced at a bit over $130 per night. They refunded the unused night in cash. Because we were forced to move we discovered better values are available for race weekends. If we found ourselves traveling through Bristol again we probably would stay with them again so long as flooding wasn't expected. We would NOT return for a race weekend. We camped at Shadrack Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Shadrack Campground

Bristol, TN

We first stopped at Shadrack in April on our way to New England and were very pleased with the campground. On our way back South we decided to spend a week back in Shadrack. What a remarkable change The management have made in the 5 months since we had left!

The addition to coin operated laundry to the fully funsctional kitchen for small gatherings is Assume! Also they have a pot luck Thursday which is fantastic , smoked ribs are GREAT.

His work campers do a great job keeping the park neat. We will definitly add Shadrack as a place we will always stop at! We camped at Shadrack Campground in a Motorhome.

We arrived at dark, not our usual M/O, so the driveway into the park besides being odd was pretty tricky. The park itself is fine. We did not want to unhook and we able to achieve that by sticking into the road quite a bit which no one complained about. Sites, though not long, were spacious enough. I got the idea they double them up when needed on race weekends. They have four water spigots grouped together in the rear, an odd arrangement which meant that, had we used water, we would have had to string our hose(s) under the rig. Elec and sewer were at the back of the sites as well, not the best location for many rigs. We were off a busy street but we didn't notice traffic noise. We camped at Shadrack Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This park seems far from the interstate but getting back on without backtracking was easily accomplished. Bristol Motor Speedway is one mile away. Downtown Bristol is quaint, and when straddling the Main Street you can have one foot in TN and one in VA.

Very tight turn for big rig getting into the park from the road. Nice people. Utilities all good. No cable. Nice little creek to look at from some sights. Some sights have grass, the one we had was all gravel. Good wifi connection. We camped at Shadrack Campground in a Motorhome.

Pretty much nothing but good things to say about this RV campground. Definitely not a ' trailer park' with seasonal- permanent occupants. My wife ran her own cleaning business for many years and she had nothing but compliments about the facilities being about the cleanest and most pleasant in our some 6000 miles of RVing.

Staff were genuinely friendly and congenial. Despite being along side a double major roadway, the road noise was at a minimum overnight as the campground is down in a hollow below the roadway. Very good Wi-Fi, a little broken up at times bu at least it worked compared to many campgrounds where the promised Wi-Fi really was non- existant. Full signal bars for Tracfone reception despite Verizon being the stronger signal in this part of the US.

Quiet, clean and great price either with discounts or at full price. just mind out for race car season and similar events- could get a little crowded, noisy and no discounts. We camped at Shadrack Campground in a Motorhome.

If you are looking for a place to tailgate overnight near the Bristol Motor Speedway you may well enjoy this clean and convenient parking lot. I hesitate to call it a campground considering the way units are packed together. No picnic tables are provided and if you want a campfire you have to provide your own or rent one of theirs. On the positive side, the staff were friendly and helpful, their store is well stocked with RV supplies. If you are looking for an overnight (think Walmart with hookups) or in town for a race this might work out well for you. Otherwise I would recommend one of the other nearby parks. We camped at Shadrack Campground in a Motorhome.

Our 50 amp had 2 legs and half of it was out. It took them about 3 hrs to get it fixed before our AC worked correctly. They had an electrician on site who got new parts and got it fixed. WIFI was out for most of our stay and they have no cable but you can get plenty of stations over the air. We had a nice shady spot as it was 97 degrees. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Entrance to the park is very steep and a little tricky but once in the sites are nice and level, grass and gravel. We had a lot of rain but sites or roads were not a problem. We camped at Shadrack Campground in a Motorhome.

Convenient to Johnson City, Bristol and Abingdon. Just 1/2 mile from Bristol Speedway. Found an excellent little restaurant 1/2 mile away, The Mad Greek. Greek and Italian with wonderful desserts. Campground is a good place to walk your dog. Lots of grass with a nice stream at the back of the park. Very relaxing place to camp. We will stay there again when in the area.

Large park with both gravel and grass sites. Great place to stop and relax overnight or a couple weeks. Lots of country music and bluegrass history in the area. Park is about 1/2 mile from Bristol Motor Speedway. We arrived the week after the big race so park was quiet. New managers are great folks and make sure you are happy with your site. Most sites are 30 AMP but manager want to convert more site to 50A.

Unless you know where the park is you may miss it and drive is a little steep in and out when towing car on a dolly. Big rigs seem okay with toad being towed 4 down

We arrived the week after the Spring race and ended up staying a couple of weeks to enjoy the Tri-Cities area. We have seen some of the changes that the new managers have begun are thoroughly impressed with their ideas for Shadrack. We have been treated as part of their family while here and We can't wait for our next trip through the Bristol area to see how much the campground will have changed throughout the rest of the spring and summer months. We camped at Shadrack Campground in a Motorhome.

What a find, a great campsite, very clean and neat, close to the historic town of Bristol. A large campsite to cater for the Bristol Motor Speedway Track. Very quiet when we stayed as this was not a race weekend. Wifi was excellent, very friendly owner. We camped at Shadrack Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

A no frills campground consisting of gravel sites and full hook-ups, great for short stay. Clean bathhouse located behind the office (up a hill from most campsites), good over-the-air broadcast TV reception, a nice Greek/Italian restaurant is walkable down the road. Park is close to Bristol racetrack which makes it popular during the season. We camped at Shadrack Campground in a Motorhome.
