We stayed here two months- Thanksgiving thru New Years. Full campground Thanksgiving weekend, then we more or less had it to ourselves. Not more than 5 other RV's there at one time. The park allowed us to extend our stay twice.
Great hiking trails. Drove to the lodge for internet. LTE worked fine at site.
It is extremely dark at night. No lights around the park. This place must be packed in the warmer weather. There is a park host family at entrance into RV park but we never saw them. However, they did leave us homemade candy @ Christmas. - Topdach
Pretty nice campground. Some sites are close together; the water faucet for the site next to us was almost under our awning. All sites are shaded. The creek behind some of the sites is nice. Good planned activities by the rangers. We went to a hoedown at the picnic shelter. Lots of children riding bikes and scooters so you have to be careful when walking dogs. The park has a sand beach at the bottom of a steep hill, but you have to drive there. The state park is very large so go in the main entrance at the north side of the park. The entrance sign is small and is on the opposite side of the road from the entrance. The inn has a restaurant with a buffet and Friday is seafood night. I would recommend the Clement Hotel Railroad Museum in Dickson. They gave us a personal guided tour for $4 each. We learned about the history of the area including Montgomery Bell, iron production, and the railroad. - Lini
Don't expect peace and quiet here. Everyone is packed in cheek to jowl, dogs barking, music blaring, kids screaming, everyone having fun. I hit it on a weekend, and it could be a whole different scene during the weekdays. All sites are shady and nice but close together. - Traveler John
