I have lived here for two years. During that time, the facilities, including the laundry room, grounds and restrooms have been maintained well. I have not used the pool or any of the play ground areas. The management works very hard to assists it residents, be they short term or long term like me, to meet their goals. I readily recommend this facility as the nicest in the area and off the interstate far enough to allow for quiet living. The lake is beautiful and draws people most of the year. I should add that there are two loops on the lake and one that is farther away from the activity for those that want a quieter place. We camped at Caney Creek RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
Tips for other Campers:
The location is approximately 25 miles from Turkey Creek which provides many stores. There are two towns between here and their that provide additional shopping and research for those interested.

To echo the previous review on this facility, it was very nice. Office staff and camp hosts were so friendly and helpful. Wish I could have joined them for coffee and chatted - really good people. We will return. We were here late September so not a whole lot of activity. Pool was closed, which was not an issue for us. Our site was out on the end of B Loop so our RV backed up to the water which was great. They seem to have a lot of rules but not all are strictly enforced as was mentioned in a previous post. There was a Class A that was clearly more than 10 years old and was covered with mold/mildew on at least one side. Vast majority of RV's were in good shape although some may have exceeded the 10 year age requirement - no biggie. They also say no storage is allowed under RV's - many RV's had a lot of items stored under them. I'd say the majority of sites were seasonal, which is fine as they are well kept and the people are super friendly. All that being said, this is a very nice and scenic park that is well taken care of. We hope to return around the same time next year. We camped at Caney Creek RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Stayed here for a weekend while visiting the Knoxville area. Booked a long pull thru site just across from pool and playground, site was perfectly level and had lots of space for toad. Pool area was great since it was a hot weekend. I have zero complaints about the park, it seemed new, was quiet and sites seemed to have nice spacing. Lots of seasonal campers which isn't a bad thing. It's a bit of a drive from Knoxville out to here, so plan accordingly if using Caney Creek as a base camp for Knoxville adventures.

First all this is a beautifully maintained park. The bathrooms, pool and recreation area as well as the main office and grounds are all well maintained and new. The staff was very nice and they do ask a lot of questions about you and your rig to make sure it meets their min requirements such as age and condition. They also ask about you animals if any as well. With that said I think it is also worth pointing out that the spacing of the sites are VERY close to each other and there is little if any shade or foliage between the spots which makes you feel even closer.
There are a lot of campers here that seem to bring a lot of "stuff" with them. I walked the park several times during my visit and I believe that many of these people live here or keep their RV here full time. I noted many of the sites are over running with all the camping accessories they bring. One site has no less than 6 large Propane bottles while others have 2-3 motorcycles wedged into the tiny site. I also saw many sites using eazyup canopies, storing large items such as kayaks, multiple bicycles, and there are golf carts everywhere. Most of the golf carts are jacked up with big wheels and feature a full stereo system so they can listen to music as they ride around the various cart paths. Since the sites are so close to each other and the drive ways so short it is difficult for many of the campers to store their stuff on site so the cars are twisted in at various angles to fit on their site. The park offers ample off site storage for boat trailers, sea doo trailers and it is usually at least partially full.
The RV parking sites are also very narrow meaning that you rig will fit but often you walk in and out of the unit on to the ground because the concrete doesn't extend far enough for you to walk on to.
I don't want to sound too negative with the comments above because some of these things are just a function of a family style campground as opposed to a "Motorhome Resort". We camped at Caney Creek RV Resort in a Motorhome.
Very nice RV resort located on Watts Bar Lake. They have a gated entry with a code which you will receive at check in. Note: They say they have a 10 year age restriction and that if yours was older they may want pics. The host was super nice and helpful. We arrived without a reservation the day before Memorial Day so they were quite busy but she found us a spot that worked.
They have around 100 sites with a few pull throughs. Ours was a back-in site on the main road. It was mostly level. There is a good bit of traffic coming in and out of the cg. Mature
A cart path lines most of the cg which is great for exercising. 2 docks are available for renting space to keep your boat. Nice pavilion and playgrounds as well. Clean bathrooms. Large swimming pool located right next to the lake
The cg was quite full and we walked the entire thing. All of the rv's were well kept but there were definitely a few that were way older than 10 years so not sure how strict they are with the age limit.
It seems like a fun, relaxed place. Did not get a snooty vibe. We only stayed 1 night passing through 5/24/15 but will definitely plan to return and spend more time.
Wifi worked great. They block you from streaming. They also have cable. 05/2015. We camped at Caney Creek RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The lower level has great view of river. The pool is well-maintained and landscaped. Lost electric for about 2 hours but other than that-no problems. Great for overnight to extended stay. We camped at Caney Creek RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
We have stayed here a few times with mixed results. Our last stay started bad and kept getting worse by the minute. From the cold, brash encounter at check in to the campsite smelling foul from all of the goose droppings it was no good. Think you see lightning out your window? No, that's the florescent bulbs on the power poles violently flickering. Just all around poor maintenance and considering this place is pricey, why?

We were just passing through the area on our way home and stayed for a single night and my wife's first comment was: "I would love to spend more time here!" We loved just about everything about this park. Staff was extremely friendly, park has some great views of the lake, well kept up and everyone seemed to keep up their areas very well. We definitely look forward to camping here again in the future. We camped at Caney Creek RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We intended to stay here 2 nights but liked it so much we stayed as long as we could - 6 nights. Nice location on the lake. Beautiful covered pavilion with tables and rocking chairs overlooking the pool and lake. Wide concrete pads, walkways and good roads. Nice playground. Very clean. Great location for going to Pigeon Forge, Chattanooga, Knoxville and the Smokies. The staff and seasonal RVers made us feel really comfortable. We've been camping about 20 years and this is now our new favorite place. Can't wait to go back. Very easy access to I-81. We camped at Caney Creek RV Resort in a Motorhome.
Great park with easy access. Everything was perfect, but the young lady in the office was a bit rude. I would return to this park. Bathrooms have lots of room and are very clean. Laundry room was kept clean. You can rent golf carts and a lot of the spots back up to the water. The background picture on my Facebook page is from this park. Absolutely beautiful view. There is a Kroger within 4 miles, and a bowling ally, drive in theater, and car wash. Oh and I almost forgot, there are docks for your boat and a storage area for trailers.

I give this resort a 10 because of everything that they are doing right, despite the number of seasonal sites. It is in a beautiful location on the lake and just about every site has a view of the water if not waterfront. The pool area, though closed at the time of our visit, is on the waterfront and is gorgeous. Check in was painless and it is a gated facility with card access. Satellite access was not a problem and the wifi was extremely fast and reliable. The sites are all paved pads with nice picnic tables. Great walking trails are all around. We will be back. We camped at Caney Creek RV Resort in a Motorhome.
The lake and pool are beautiful, with many sites close to lake (but not pool or beach area). Gorgeous sunsets. Majority of sites taken by long termers. If your camper has elec/water hookup in center, you will most likely have a difficult time accessing services as all are way in back of sites due to being so close together--you may need to buy extra hose and/or cords. The few trees remaining around most sites do not provide any shade. The Camp and marina store have very few items--if you forget something, better be prepared to drive into town. There was no wi-fi available, the poolside grill was never open, some bathhouses were consistently locked. There are only 2 rental pontoon boats available for the entire park as well as public. Most calls to personnel went to voice mail rather than connecting directly. Sorry to be so negative but that was reality. We camped at Caney Creek RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
After leaving another park due to poor conditions we found this one and it is really nice. Had a lot of laundry to do and their laundry room was excellent. Lots of choice in the spots available. There are many long time folks here but they come and go and use the park as a weekend place for their families. Very friendly staff and helpful too. The only thing to remember is the power pedestals are at the back end of the back-ins. So you need a long cord. I had to get some cable and make mine longer, 40 ft. But overall it is quiet and very clean and off the road. All the sites are paved with a paved patio on the side. We camped at Caney Creek RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We have a monthly lease at this campground. We thoroughly enjoy the campground and the new management team. We have a lake front site which enables us to enjoy the lake during the warm sunny days. My only suggestion for the park is to improve the Wi-Fi connectivity throughout the campground. We are at B-32 and we did not get a strong enough signal to pay for their Wi-Fi service.

Multiple pet owners, beware! While driving through TN, we saw the Caney Creek RV Resort sign on the campgrounds sign at the Interstate exit and decided to stop. The park is approximately 4 miles off I-40 and looked very beautiful as we pulled in. We are in a 45 Motorhome towing and the entrance accommodated us nicely. We were met with friendly staff and began the registration process. At the end of registration, we were asked about pets. When I told them we had 3 small dogs, the registration & friendliness ended abruptly. We were told there is a 2 pet policy and it is strictly enforced. We were told the owner is very serious about it. So, we left and don't know anything else about the park. We just know we have 3 very well-behaved small dogs; pick up after our dogs and have never let them be a nuisance. We have never encountered this in our travels over the past 10 years.
