Just an overnight stay, second time in the last year. The campground is clean and seems well maintained. The one bathroom I checked out was clean and orderly. The roads in the campground are quite narrow and twisty. The sites ate quite close together and the trees don't appear to have been trimmed. We woke to something falling on the roof and found, next morning, two large limbs had hit us.

My one negative is the price: $20 for electric and $30 for full service in a state park with no amenities is darned pricey. We camped at Montgomery Bell State Park in a Motorhome.

Very crowded with very little room to back in or pull out. Cars parked everywhere. Was a foot off level from front to back. I saw pets but have no idea on their policy. I noticed trash around the park. It was a holiday weekend but I expected better.

I would stay in a parking lot with no water and electricity to keep away from this place. We camped at Montgomery Bell State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park, very friendly staff. Not big rig friendly. VERY narrow roads, tight turns, trees close to road and most sites. We got lucky to find an end site with a lot of room to pull up. Still dragged on tree limbs on the side/roof. Would stay again because it's too tight for our 38' 5th wheel. To bad, it's a pretty park with a nice creek running behind. We camped at Montgomery Bell State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Asphalt roads inside the RV park, which are very tight and tree lined. Good amount of shade. No check in was required with a call ahead reservations. No guns or alcohol allowed in the park. Restrooms are aged, but were clean. Trash cans located on most sites with pick up daily. Ice, fire wood and etc. at the store. Most sites have elec., but few sites have sewer. Our site #32 (back-in, asphalt parking, no sewer) was just barely long enough for our 37' 5er to fit, was sloped required leveling blocks, but most sites appeared to be reasonably level. Great fall colors and it was fun to experience the falling leaves through the day. Great hikes for the grandkids. Don't miss visiting this state park. We camped at Montgomery Bell State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

First off, this is a very pretty State Park. But the campground is too cramped, crowded and smashed together. Maybe if you came here mid week you'd love it. But on a weekend? You and your neighbors will get to know each other far too well. The weekend we were there it was packed and unpleasant. This also made the bathrooms crowded and dirty.

We may be pickier than others that love this place - but it just a 6 on our scale of CG acceptability. We camped at Montgomery Bell State Park in a Motorhome.

Very difficult site for fifth wheel. Sewer was up hill from camper. No room on site, couldn't even have a fire. On weekends, many people walk in and tent in middle of park. Walking trails were very nice. Beautiful park but sites very small. We camped at Montgomery Bell State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Typical state park...beautiful campground in the quiet of the park. Some sites have water, 50 AMP, and sewer. A little tight for our 40' motorhome to back into a spot...very busy with cars parked in or near the street. Quiet for the most part...some children playing type noise which is to be expected in a state park. We camped at Montgomery Bell State Park in a Motorhome.

I made reservations last Dec so I had my pick of sites. The sites along the creek looked equal spaced on the map on reserve america. We chose 118 which turned out to abut 119 wth no space between. Their utilities were at our door. Next time I would choose 116, 113, 108 or 84. The park is lovely. We stayed 5 nights and will return. We camped at Montgomery Bell State Park in a Motorhome.

There is a great restaurant at the Inn. The Fri seafood buffet and Sat steak buffet were very good and reasonably priced at $15.95. Our friends payed golf and reported that the course was good.

Well maintained and patrolled state park, but the sites are very close together. We visited on a peak weekend and there wasn't much room to move around. Staff was friendly, with a small camp store and woodshed. A word of caution if you're a Class B owner and sometimes "dry camp" in primitive sites: Most of the tent sites are what other places would call "walk in" sites. You're parking on the road and walking into the picnic/fire area. Others are on severe inclines. I would say only basic sites 52, 54, 56 and 59 have enough space to park in the living area of the site. We camped at Montgomery Bell State Park in a Motorhome.

Great State Park. Tons of trails and hiking available. It can be a little tight for big rigs and big campers getting in and can be tricky after dark getting into your site. That said, someone is always willing to guide you backing in. Clean park with friendly staff. We camped at Montgomery Bell State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Montgomery Bell State Park in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Montgomery Bell State Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Montgomery Bell State Park in a Motorhome.

This was 'Fall Break' in TN. Campground is completely full and sites are narrow and you must disconnect. I would not recommend this for a large rig and would never have come if I knew this was 'Fall Break'. Beautiful park, just too crowded and too tight. Our 23' trailer fit well, but was difficult maneuvering. The park seems well maintained and all sites have 30/50A w/ water and for 10 more dollars you can buy a site with sewer if available. The host seems congenial just harassed with the crowd. We camped at Montgomery Bell State Park in a Travel Trailer.
