One of the very nicest Army Corp parks you'll ever see. Huge sites. Clean! Not all sites have sewer. We stayed at a discounted rate (Golden Access). A bit noisy on holidays (lake activity and kids); otherwise very peaceful, serene setting. Friendly and safe! Paved roads with gravel sites. We stay here whenever in TN. We camped at Salt Lick Creek COE in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice, well-maintained COE campground. There are many sites right on the water, several in the woods, which tend to be better-shaded, several with beautiful views out into open, broad grassy areas. I saw several deer and two wild turkeys. The host was extremely helpful and accommodating. There is no pool, but there is a very nice-looking sand-beach swimming area at the lake shore. I didn't swim there but did swim just off my campsite. The water had no odor, and it was very comfortable (air temps in the mid-90's). Boat traffic was minimal, but I visited during the week. The only warning I would offer is that some of the sites seem to be set up as joint sites, adjoining each other with a continuous gravel pad. If you are camping with another party, this may be desirable, but if you are this close to a stranger, you may not have much privacy. I would recommend calling the campground to request guidance on the type of site you want. The campground map does not do a good job of explaining which are conjoined and which are separate. We camped at Salt Lick Creek COE in a Travel Trailer.

There is no swimming pool but there is an area roped off and a beach at the campground. The park is another one in the line of nice Army Corp of Engineer's CGs, this one is a little more tough to get to than Defeated Creek and Dale Hallow, and not as crowded. Very nice lakefront sites, some are pull throughs, not all sites are 50 A with sewer, but you can go to the COE webpage and reserve your site if you need that.
