Older park, definitely built for 8' rigs before slide outs. Tightest we've been in quite some time. Sites quite unlevel, water pressure about 40 psi, and only two 50 amp sites (and in one site the cord is laying across the site from the junction box). Sewage all the way to the rear of the sites. Counted at least three couples who are allowed to let their dogs throughout the park off leash. Not a good experience, can't imagine trying to get in here after dark. Rate is with a Passport America rate. We camped at Tanbark Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Great park. Arrived late in the fog and owner let me check in the next morning. Wide pull-thorough and easy hookups. Easy access from interstate 40, short drive. We camped at Tanbark Campground in a Motorhome.

We originally paid for 7 nights, but left after 4. The spaces were so tight we couldn't even open our awning. Lots of shade and it was a pretty quiet park considering we were only a mile from I-40. We had a very difficult time getting OUT of the park because of the way they have angled their roads and the position of the trees. Took us 3 tries to get around 1 corner because it was so tight. They say they have Wi-Fi, but it didn't really work the first 2 days we were there. It finally started working on day 3 and 4, but only sporadically. I usually drove a mile down the road to a McDonalds to get the Internet. I was able to use my cellphone inside the park and we did manage to get a satellite TV signal. Didn't use bathrooms or laundry so can't comment on that. We camped at Tanbark Campground in a Motorhome.

We pulled in and got the last space. They were a little tight. It was, however, a nice, quiet park with easy on and off Interstate 40. The reason for rating a 7 was the restrooms and shower area needed to be cleaned a little better. We camped at Tanbark Campground in a Motorhome.

This is great park if you are looking for a quiet place to relax or get off the road for the night. Their best attribute is peace and quiet and ease of use. Very easy to get to off of I-40, and we felt secure in the park. There are some permanent residents that are very nice and helpful. Did not see anything unkempt or shoddy looking. We will definitely stay here whenever we're in the area. Don't miss the Loveless Cafe and the Freshwater Pearl museum in the area. We camped at Tanbark Campground in a Motorhome.

We called a day ahead to reserve a site. When we arrived, they no longer had the promised site. Instead, we were given a much shorter and very narrow site. A car parked along the gravel road made it very difficult to enter the site To leave our neighbor had to move her toad. The very slow WiFi did not work until later in the night. The sewer connection may have been under some boards we never bothered to check on. The owners? stinking of smoke, apologized and discounted the Passport America 50 amp rate to a 30 amp rate. MacGyver is alive and well and living in this campground. Old trailers are partially covered by roofs, residential AC units are stuck through the sides of trailers, and trailers are nailed into parts of a small house.. One truck camper even has a satellite dome sticking on a pole above it. No recycling is offered. We will not return. We camped at Tanbark Campground in a Motorhome.

Good overnight park, power was good. Price reflects Passport America. Site was paved but our 36' RV and towed filled the complete pull through. They say call before hand if you were any longer but most sites were the same length as the one we were given. A lot of permanents there but the park was clean and maintained. We camped at Tanbark Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice park for an overnighter. Just off I-40. Up a gravel road. Nearly level asphalt pads. Nice, friendly staff. Full hookups. Didn't try the Internet or other amenities. Just stopped for the night. Looks to be a combination mobile home park; campground for seasonal or permanent residents and sites for travelers. Big dog walk but not fenced. We'd definitely stop there again.

Passport America rate. Easy exit off highway I-40 heading west from Nashville. We stayed here one night. Quiet campground, asphalt pad site, pull through, very nice staff. The park is not something that you would want to stay a week at, overnight is good. Small, some permanent residents. We would stay here again when passing through. We camped at Tanbark Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We paid the Passport America rate for our site at this distinctly no-frills campground. The park has easy access from Interstate 40. The office staff was pleasant. The campground has gravel roads. Four blacktopped, 30 amp pull-through sites and a few additional 50-amp pull-through sites were readily available. Most of the other sites appeared to be occupied on a seasonal basis. The bathroom facilities were hard-used but clean. The free Wi-Fi was so slow one simply quit trying to use it. Overall, this is a decent over-nite stop at a bargain-basement price. We camped at Tanbark Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Rate quoted is Passport America, and the campground was about what we expected. The sites were not level and the road into the park was gravel. But we just wanted a place for the night and we were back on the road early the next morning. The staff was friendly but we only saw her for 5 minutes. We camped at Tanbark Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Used Magellan to get here as it is off the main drag (no highway noise). There is a large truck stop is across the interstate for fuel/food etc. The park is old, but, we had nice view of pasture when the frost came in overnight. The shower and restroom facility is old like the rest of the park, but, clean. This stop fit our day perfectly and managers were very nice. Got Good Sam rate. OH! Ask about which way to go when pulling out. I didn't hit anything. We camped at Tanbark Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This campground is adequate for an overnight stay while on the road, or as a home away from home if you're a construction worker. It is not a destination campground for someone looking for a nice getaway or vacation spot. The sites are very close together. It claims to be big rig friendly, but we barely had room to put the slides out, could not put the awning out, and I had to take my bike rack off the back because some part of the camper would be out in the road otherwise. There were a lot of permanent campers and some weren't what I would call well kept. The staff was friendly. Again, as an overnight it is okay. If you are in a large motorhome or fifth wheel, be cautious pulling in and out, as the roads are pretty tight. We camped at Tanbark Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We just stayed here for a night but it was ample. Not sure about longer stays but it serves the purpose for a short stay. Rate reflects Passport America rate. Good voltage and water pressure and level site. We didn't even unhook, just put the jacks down. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Tanbark Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Everything is too close. Roads are narrow and trees need to be trimmed. Permanent residents are allowed to encroach on roadways with knickknacks and pattywacks. This makes for hard navigation though park . Also, if you have pets and need to walk them; the park if wet is muddy. The road in is very rough with pot holes. Won't stay here again. We camped at Tanbark Campground in a Motorhome.
