Clean, level, concrete pads. Lots of room in between sites. Hookups well placed. Beautiful water view. Live band the Saturday night we stayed. Loved the outdoor swings at certain sites. Nice place to fish. Only wish they offered jet ski or boat rentals! Roads are tight getting in-but doable! - n2camping

Friendly, helpful staff. Good sized, level concrete sites with good amenities including good WiFi and cable. If you have a boat it is even better. - padre44

I am going to try and rate this campground fairly. Getting there is a little challenging. First you have a really steep hill to pull after you turn in off hwy 30. After that the road is very narrow but as long as you drive slow you can make it. This campground has good cable and wi-fi. The concrete pads are level and wide. We had no trouble with four slides and awning. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. The store is well stocked. I think most people come to this place to fish. I know while we were there I caught a nice mess of crappie for dinner one night. We will go back. - chub

Stayed 2 months, Feb and March and returned for 2 weeks in August. Best park ever, staff super friendly, cleanest park. All facilities are immaculate. Centrally located. Game room, excellent, playground for kids and adults, quiet. Can't say enough good things about this campground. Owners work hard all the time making this place an excellent place for long or short term stays. Will take advantage of their store and stay program in near future. - Gene and Toni

Rate reflects 2 nights PA and 1 night full price. I do not consider this park as big rig friendly, but others might. Sites are narrow and close. Sites by the road are on an angle that puts the front of the coach higher than the rear. If you have a toy hauler, you could have a steep drop out the back of your coach. First site was so unlevel my auto-leveler couldn't level. Second site was not as out of level so the leveler worked. Second site was also longer than first. There was some road noise and it was bothersome at night. A loose dog marked my coach's tires. Never did see the dog, just the spot on the tread. Game room was decent. No fenced dog area. No cell service, but there is a free landline phone by the office. Lots of good, twisty, motorcycle roads in the area. A bit of a drive to Pikeville for groceries or restaurants. Follow the driving directions on the web page. If you go it on your own, the twisty roads will not be kind to your coach. - TH travelers

This campground is an out-of-the-way place to stay. It is truly, out in the country, and the perfect spot for those wishing to avoid the big city noise and hustle and bustle.
Some of the sites are fairly level, but about half of them are so uneven that campers are required to use several boards to get their rigs level. We were lucky in that we had one of the more level sites and had no problem getting our 44' coach level.
This campground is very clean, quiet, and friendly. There is a nice pond on site which is catch and release only, and has been stocked with bass, perch, and bream.
The staff is very cordial and helpful, and works hard to keep the facility clean and in working order. We will definitely stay here again as we pass through the area. - WhiskeyMan

RV Park sites were very level. Clean RV Park. The owners are very nice and very helpful. Laundry faculty was very clean.
Very peaceful and close to I-40 and I-75.
Nice picnic shelter with grills.
No shower house but the owners said they were renovating the building on the property and would have one soon.
We really liked our site, had lots of shade and a nice rock fire pit.
There was a laundry facility there and was very clean and kept up. - PJ_1962

Seasonals have taken over. 3 or 4 very poor slots available. Gravel spots are overgrown, the pedestals falling over. cable connections don't work cable laying on the grounds. A lawnmower has not seen this area in quite some time. Electrical wavered a bit as the night went on. Sites are very short. The 'owners' no longer staff the office. Someone drops in late in the day. Pool is closed (even in season). I am sorry to say this place is darn near gone. NO 50amp or sewer in overnighter area. - Mushroom

We have stayed here for a month every year for the past 4 years but this year will probably be our last. The campground is for sale and maintenance is being ignored. Most of the pull-through sites have power and cable issues and are very tightly packed. The grass was about 6 inches tall when we arrived and no one cut any of the sites for the whole month we were there. Fire ants are everywhere. The host are not friendly but this is nothing new for this park. This park is fine for an overnight visit and easy to get around in, although a little hard to find behind Krystal's. - dandg

This property is up for sale. The facilities are getting run down and shabby looking. Hookups are needing updating and repair in some instances but nothing much is being done. The pull-through sites are barely long enough for a 40' coach and small toad and are crammed together with your neighbor's sewer hose next to your picnic table. Trees between sites make slide deployment iffy. Other than a quick overnight, don't bother. - lllkrob

I am am a repeat visitor. Super friendly owner/managers continue to improve this quiet country campgtound. Electric power is the big deal this year. The power company finally the upgraded the transformers and power feeds ----what a difference. Strong 50 amp and 30 amp service. - cdrfred

Absolutely beautiful with the turning of the leaves. Love it here. It is always a pleasure to spend time here relaxing and enjoying the camp and surrounding scenery. Managers/owners work hard doing upgrades continually. - lindaguthrie

Small quiet RV Park, our site was somewhat unlevel but most looked good. Many trees provided shade the laundry was ok except the dryers were not working that great. It's about 20 minutes to town. We would return. - rjsupersonic

Wow! This is a fabulous gem of a campground. Located on a peninsula into lovely Watts Bar Lake, most of the campsites are right on the water. We were able to launch our kayaks from our campsite. The view was incredible. We had delicate pink sunrises reflecting on the water each morning. There are two shallow swimming areas, though when we got really hot we took a dip off of our site as well. We stayed here under the totality of the Great American Eclipse. The staff couldn't have been nicer, they organized things so that the campground was not overrun with visitors, but so that we could have extra guests in our site if we wanted. The campsites provide electricity and water. For a small fee someone comes to dump and backwash your tanks. Verizon coverage is ifey. There are internet spots at the office porch and multipurpose/laundry room. There is 1 washer and dryer. We stayed for 4 nights, and wished we had planned our trip so that we could have stayed longer. We are already planning a return trip. This is a special place to relax, unwind and unplug. - ShoreXplorers

We have camped here multiple times. Most sites are lake front or easy access. Friendly hosts. No sewer, but for a small fee they will come and dump your tanks. Will stay here again for sure. - Weazer

We loved this place from the moment we pulled it. Warm, welcoming staff, clean campsite, and nice hot showers. What more could you need? The site we chose was right on the water and was shaded by large mature trees. We will be back to this place, what a treat! - Handyandy

Another great State Park experience. Beautiful grounds, sites were nice and semi private with small concrete pads and a gravel drive. Only complaint would be the sites are steep and not level. It took quite a bit to get the RV true and level. - TampaTMM

My family camps here at least once or twice per year. It is always a great time because there is so much you can do-or just take-it-easy. - Keith Davis

Best to use the entrance on the SW side (TN 111 to TN 284). I would not recommend the North side entrance (TN 111 to TN 20 to TN 284). This route has a lot of curves. Take plenty of your preferred leveling materials, then add a little more. There are some sites that are fairly level, but many are not, both front to back and side to side,. Sites 87 and 119 have the hook-ups on the wrong side. Sites 191 and 192 are buddy sites (campers face each other and hook-up are on correct side for both). Lots of trails within the park. Adventure Trek course was great fun. River swimming area and a poo, (small fee) with life guards and two diving boards. Currently they are collecting the fallen trees and cutting and splitting wood in the campground and offering it for free. It is not dry wood, but fresh cut. My only real complaint is that they don't clean the sites. We had trash in the fire ring and other areas of our site when we checked in, as did other in our group. We made sure to leave our site cleaner than we found it. Most sites have picnic tables that are anchored down and can't be moved. The park camp store is well stocked with basic items. The closest grocery store is Save-a-lot about 30 min. away. Walmart is almost an hour. Verizon service was good, the CG Wi-Fi is a joke and never did work. - MODguy

No one cleaned the bathrooms on the weekends. Sites in area B are too hard to get a big rv in and there was a lot of people complaining about it. The rangers need to patrol the area more than twice a day that we noticed for two weeks. Some days it was only once. Maybe we would have not got stuff stolen from our camp site! - Purplebear2277

I like the "A" section of this park. In a motorhome it is the only section we could get into. This park is close to Chattanooga for shopping or sight seeing. It is a clean, quiet park. I would go back. - chub

We had a lovely waterfront campsite. We walked through loop B and decided that wouldn't be a good option for us, as most sites aren't level. Loop A is definitely a better choice. We didn't use any of the facilities. We were glad that we heeded the warning about big rigs and sites 36-41. The loop at that end is a very tight turn. Our motor home would not be able to make the turn. I'm guessing the rate. No discount for premium sites. - Donna and Steve

I frequently travel to Chattanooga in my RV on business, and Chester Frost is my home away from home. I am happy to hear there is a reservation system in place now because it is true that it was tricky to get a spot before. In good weather, the park fills up early because it is a favorite spot for local families and fishermen. We have a favorite spot on the water that is a little farther from neighbors than most of the spots. We have no complaints about this park. - pompomgirl

We arrived in the afternoon in the middle of the week with no reservation. As stated in other reviews we drove around in the one loop that had no reservations and found the best site on the lake but it was not level. The additional comments I wish to make, acknowledging the good comments from other campers, were that the roads to all the sites in our loop were not clear as to direction. Each road had a chalked arrow on the road indicating direction, one way signs would have been clearer. The dump station in our loop was in the middle of the campground but was on the wrong side of the road, which was the right side of the trailer. I turned around and came back against the "flow" to dump. I also thought the roads were narrow and tight to maneuver. Now having said all of this, If I am ever in this part of the state again, I will certainly return but with a reservation. The rates for this campground are very good compared to the rates for the local RV parks. We stayed for four days. - Nautilus

Large county park on the lake that offers three camping sections for RV's plus a separate tent camping area. First the pros: Our site was shaded and on the lake, which was beautiful. We did not encounter any issues as previously mentioned as we were able to reserve a site online. The ranger at check-in was friendly and helpful. Some of the sites are long enough for a long RV plus a tow vehicle. Laundry facilities are on site that are clean and provide a decent washer and hot dryers. A picnic table and fire pit are located at each site. The park is convenient to local shopping, restaurants and Chattanooga sites. Park staff periodically patrols the park. Although we did not use, some of the bathhouses offer "private" shower rooms and they appear clean. The park provides a lake beach, boat ramps, and several fishing piers and boat docks. Parking available for boat trailers. Cons: Our site had trash piled in the firepit, which as a result we did not use. There was also trash and a lot of cigarette butts around the park itself. Perhaps utilizing workampers just to clean campsites and pickup trash in the park as people leave might solve this issue. In addition to a large dump station at the park entrance, there is a small dump station for portable tanks located at one of the campgrounds. This was a negative for us because it was quite a distance from our site and not convenient at all to use. It would have been nice if there was a dump station for portable tanks located at both campgrounds. Overall, we did enjoy our stay and would definitely visit again if we are in the area. - Golfgirl

A "best kept secret" of East Tennessee RV Parks. Not large (10 pull-thru and 10 back-in sites), but the sites were level, gravel, and well kept and all had 30/50 amp, water and sewer hookups. A few sites appear to have long-term occupancy but very neat. The setting is gorgeous -- wooded, but sufficient open space for roof-based satellite use. Staff was very friendly. The park has been for sale by the owners for 2 years, but continues to operate as normal. No frills (no pool or laundry, for example), but easy access to the freeway and quiet. - nationcruiser

Older park, average or less time spent maintaining the park; owners are trying to sell and you can tell they are not interested in putting any more cash into it. A little hard to get a large 5th wheel or motor home into the sites used for over nighters. Sites further up the hill look ok for larger rigs.
Restrooms old but clean. Ok for an over night. - PJ's Park and Play

This is a great overnight park. The rate includes $2 for WiFi a little slow but it works. If you are a big rig towing a vehicle, you will have to unhook to get around, otherwise the park lives up to its name. A clean quite spot to spend the night. - joe4golf
