Just a one night Rt 40 stop for us but this was a nice park with a warm welcome. Has every amenity you need but it is showing its' age a bit. Site was level gravel and easy pull through. Bathrooms are clean. For the $$ it is an excellent value and a nice stopping point.
In park roads are fine...but access road from highway to park is rutted and narrow...go slow. We will come here again. We camped at Bean Pot Campground in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
Good book exchange in office...take advantage to re-stock.

Rate was for 50 amp with full hookups. Driveways and the pads were gravel. Sewer connections were screw in. Sewer was at the back of the site so you need long connections. There were lots of shade trees. Water pressure was 40 psi. There were 36 channels of cable TV. We had free, non-passworded Wi-Fi service with good strength and good response times. There was a picnic table and fire ring. ATT phone service was 4 out of 5 bars; Verizon was 3 out of 5 bars. We camped at Bean Pot Campground in a Motorhome.

I was surprised by the state of the campground as it had received good reviews and the staff was pleasant. There were what looked to be seasonal sites with RV's that were in poor states of repair. Several were covered in blue tarps and there were folks working on the park model RV across from our site. The park seemed worn and in need of updating - our picnic table was filled with splinters and needed paint. I don't think I would stay there again. We camped at Bean Pot Campground in a Travel Trailer.
The campground has some sites wide enough to extend the awning. Many do not. Some sites are a little difficult to enter and leave with big rigs. The staff is very friendly and always accessible. We camped at Bean Pot Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Visit the Cumberland County Playhouse. The productions there never disappoint.
This is a convenient final stop for us before home when traveling east on I-40. Office staff is nice. Campground is neat, clean and attractive. No traffic noise. A few spaces look possibly tricky to exit due to trees but we've had no trouble so far. No trouble leveling. Lots of shade. Good wifi. Will definitely stay again.

I just stayed for 2 nights and the people were very nice. Even gave me a discount because I was not going to hook up to water. The WiFi was pretty good although they did put in a spot very close to the office. All in all I would stay here again if needed. I work telecom and we only have a couple of sites in this area so probably won't be back but if I do I will most likely stay here. We camped at Bean Pot Campground in a Truck Camper.

The campground is like camping in the woods. The owners/staff are extremely nice and very accommodating. We felt the owners/staff hospitality was out of this world. The people who were staying at the campgrounds when we were there were extremely friendly. The campsites have a nice fire pit and we enjoyed a cozy fire both nights we stayed since it was really cold that weekend. The sites are level and gravel and pull through so very convenient and easy to access. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Bean Pot Campground in a Travel Trailer.

About 50% of the sites here are mostly level. The facilities are getting older. The sites just one row over were without water. The sewer was backed up too. On the plus side, there are plenty of shade trees and a nice club house. The pool was closed for the season. There looked to be a fire ring at most sites. The picnic tables were fair shape. Check in was smooth and they took some money off for Passport America. The wifi here was spotty at times. This place has a few stray cats and a few that belong there. The doggie pick up stations looked in good repair and stocked. They seem to have sites that are more than able to handle any sized rig. The bathrooms were only cleaned 1 time in the 5 days we were there. The trash cans were plentiful throughout the campground. The noise from the rock quarry was noticeable but not to bad. I was surprised to find them working on Sunday. Overall I would return. We camped at Bean Pot Campground in a Motorhome.

An unremarkable park, but the price was reasonable and it had what we needed for our purposes - we were just looking for a place to "hang our hat" while we checked out the Crossville area. Unlike some parks with nary a tree, this one has lots of trees - heavily shaded. On the plus side it kept the rig cooler out of the sun, but it also obscured our satellite signal, (they DO have limited cable), and some days it seemed very dark inside the RV. The roads are gravel and a little tight, and the pedestals and utilities are not recent. The circuit breaker at out first site was defective, and it had no power. They moved us to a second site where we got electric, but the cable didn't work. They ran a longer cable to the adjacent site and then we were OK after that. The staff was helpful and friendly and worked to get things up to speed for us. We found the park to be nice and quiet - most of the time - (more below). They are far enough off the interstate (about a mile) and off the road too, so we were impressed by how quiet the place was. That was until Sunday morning. Then, before dawn at 5am we were awakened by the beeping of heavy equipment backing, and the crashing of stone being dumped into trucks. We discovered that the park backs up to a stone quarry or plant, and we were amazed that they would be at work on Sunday here in the Bible Belt. We had NOT heard any activity before Sunday. Since Sunday we found that the plant is working every day, and starts early. We rise early, so for us it hasn't been a big problem, but during the day there is a lot of truck traffic in and out along the edge of the Bean Pot property. There is a berm along the back property line to attenuate the noise, but it's still there. Final analysis - we'll likely stay here again, but if you're a late sleeper be wary of the potential noise.

I don't know what noise the previous reviewer was addressing. We heard nothing. This is a great camping spot with easy access to I -40. Shady sites, great pull-thru sites. Very friendly staff, really nice and helpful. We will stay here again when in the area. We camped at Bean Pot Campground in a Motorhome.
