There's nothing to say about this place but praises & compliments. Beautiful, tranquill, extremely well kept & managed RV park. 200 acres & 25 acre lake makes this the place to set as your destination. We will be coming back here for a longer visit. We camped at Deer Run RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We were staying for a week, so wanted something quiet and clean. We got all that and much more. This is one of the cleanest, most pleasant parks we have stayed at. This was the off season, so there were few others in the park, but it was evident from the beginning that this is a well-run, meticulously groomed park. The staff was very professional and friendly, and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The utilities, electric pedestals, water lines, and sewer hookups were updated and fully functional. Water pressure was good, as was the voltage. I always seem to have problems with Wi-Fi in RV parks, but Deer Run didn?t skimp on access points. We stayed at two different areas in the park (one area was shutting down for the season) and the signal was excellent all the time.
The park is 3 ? miles off the main road, but the quiet was exquisitely worth the drive. Imagine a spot with absolutely no traffic noise and no railroad! We were parked with a nice view of the lake and the only noise was the occasional honking of geese and quacking of ducks. The roads were smooth, and the sites were all squeaky clean. There aren?t enough superlatives for this place. We camped at Deer Run RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Beautiful clean RV park. Super friendly and helpful staff. We used Passport America for one night and Good Sam for two nights. Will definitely use this RV park again. We camped at Deer Run RV Resort in a Motorhome.
Beautiful park. Mens bathhouse was ok. Womens in #2 was a mess. Could be because a large amount of middle age girls were there for ball tournament. Nice lake walk. Nice store. Private. Gate uses card. People very nice. Saw deer, as we were leaving. Have kept the park theme, by lots of trees. All spaces are large. Would recommend. Not close to town.

Thursday, June 20 – Deer Run RV Resort, Crossville, TN This was a one night stopover as we were heading back east on our way home. It is a Passport America park good for Sunday – Thursday nights. We called when we were about an hour away, and the woman on the phone was very friendly and informative. Told me the cost with the pass at $17.80 for full hookups, Wi-Fi and cable but must be paid in cash for one night. When we arrived and checked in, she had everything ready to go and was just as informative and friendly. The check in was at the office, store and deli and the entrance is gated. Nice drive in but there is a big section of permanent sites and then sites for overnights or longer on this side of the lake. Driving around the lake there is another area for overnighters and tenters. There are three bathhouses, a pool, beach, cabins, pavilion, basketball courts, tennis courts, horseshoes, shuffleboard, boat launch area (non motor) and a chapel. A very nice place to stay for one night or longer. You can walk around the lake and we did have a thunderstorm when we were there and our site drained quickly. Good stop and I am sure that if we are traveling on interstate 40 again, we will stop for another overnight. We camped at Deer Run RV Resort in a Motorhome.
Hands down- this is my favorite campground. Huge sites, very private and quiet and wonderful staff. Host and crew will accomodate you in any situation you find yourself in. Nice pool, beach area, playground,wonderful creeks and trails to explore! We camp here at least 3 times a year. Not because this is our only choice, but because we cant find another campground that exceeds what this campground offers. We have two boys and this campground is SAFE and allows them to play and be kids. We can't find that in State parks. This campground is our home away from home. It's a place where host knows you by name and your are welcomed as family. We love it! We camped at Deer Run RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed just one night to visit a friend. It is a large RV park. We were able to get a site for our 40 foot rig so we could have good satellite reception. Friendly, helpful staff. Would recommend this park to others. The rate of $34 is too high for an overnight stop. Passport America wasn't available when we arrived on a Saturday.

Great park with a fantastic owner. We stayed here for our daughters first birthday and they were very helpful with allowing others to enter for the day just for the party. In our group we had 6 campsites and 2 cabins and did not have any problems with them. While we were there the campground was also having a "birthday party" and they cooked for everyone in the campground. Our sites had just been updated with new gravel and was level. Easy in and out to all the sites in the back loop where we stayed. The newly installed Wi-Fi was working and cable TV in in the plans to be installed. We camped at Deer Run RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice campground friendly staff and the park is well taken care of. The campstore has a large selection of rv supplies. The down side is the actual camping area is about a mile from the main building and it is a dusty dirt road. The sites are also gravel and our site was not well drained are level. Some of the sites have shade. The restrooms and showers are clean but not air conditioned so they stay dusty. The laundry is not air conditioned either and was some what dirty. We stayed here in a fifth wheel for a week. I wont stay here again. We camped at Deer Run RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
If you want a "camping" experience you will like this park. We used it for a one night stop along I-40, and it was a mistake: It's nearly 6 miles to the park entrance, then another mile to the sites. This last mile is on very dusty gravel. We had a 50 amp full hookup pull-through, but it was not very level, sloping to the front and curb side. No cable or Wi-Fi at sites. Although 75 degrees, several smokey campfires were burning. On the plus side, friendly staff, quiet at night. We will not stay here again. We camped at Deer Run RV Resort in a Motorhome.
We really enjoyed spending a weekend at this park. We stayed in a back-in site on the rear loop. It was level, shaded, and had a nice view. In general, the sites are a good size. There was Wi-Fi available at our site, but we used our own 4g modem. We had a full strength AT&T signal throughout the park. The staff members we dealt with were all very nice. The park itself was very clean. Everything seemed well maintained. The lake is not huge, but it is very pretty. The pool, tennis courts, etc., are located at the front loop. However, the sites there are smaller, and there are many long-term residents there. The back loop was much more like staying in a state park. We camped at Deer Run RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Not sure about rate. We received group/Good Sam rate. Very reasonable, even if I can't remember what it was. Beautiful lake. We used this campground for our monthly Good Sam chapter camp out. The owners were extremely helpful and eager to make our stay enjoyable. There are lots of permanent residential sites, but there is an area that is for in & out camping. Nice pavilion, cooking facilities, and a large playground. We enjoyed our weekend and will definitely want to come back for another camp out. We camped at Deer Run RV Resort in a Motorhome.

I don't think anyone would regret staying here because it is so beautiful and well maintained. BUT: There is no internet access at the campsites. The roads inside the campground are smooth but HORRIBLY DUSTY! And I do not mean normal dirt road dust. It is a white dust from the crushed stone they have used for the roads. It covers everything with a white powder that looks like concrete dust. Our dark blue jeep was turned totally white! Sadly, this could have rated as one of the most beautiful parks we ever visited. It is HUGE with lots and lots of room at each space. I wish I had checked out the Bean Pot campground down the road first. The $34 rate does not reflect a Passport America discount because they do not accept it on weekends. We camped at Deer Run RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects Passport America for 3 nights. We decided to try this campground, having use 2 others in the area previously. Primary reason was the rate. It is a beautiful drive in and well away from the Interstate or main road. Lots of nature on a beautiful lake. There is a refundable $10 gate deposit and easy to use and get refund. There are two camping sites: both a goodly hike from the office where you currently must go to use Wi-Fi. Camp store is well stocked and pizza smelled great while checking in; never tried it. Sites are gravel but amazingly level. All sites have full hook-ups with fire ring and picnic table. Downsides: a) The bathhouses are NOT centrally located and about a 5 minute walk from the sites. Not fun on a cool, rainy, windy day. b) The bathhouse was clean but the water temp cool and pressure low. No one else in showers, so shouldn't have been a problem. c) Because they are on back side of ridge and in woods, only two over the air channels: CW and PBS (with 3 subs). d) LOTS of full-time owners in park models or modified RV sites. They are NOT junky, but are close together and as one person told me, "The place is really jumping on a summer weekend." NOT what I would want for camping. All in all, this is a beautiful, well thought out campground. Once they get cable TV and Wi-Fi this summer, I might be tempted to give a higher score. BTW: we had no problems with dusty roads; the crusher run seems to have compacted and dust was minimal. We camped at Deer Run RV Resort in a Motorhome.
