17 RV Parks near Heiskell, Tennessee

Our review of this park was a difficult one to write because the manager was extremely friendly. Her family owns the place but honestly this is only a hobby park. It was not well marked on the east ( exit 117 off of I-75N and turn right ) side of Raccoon Valley Road. Their park sign is almost non existent. Once in the park the gravel sites were only moderately level ( we needed boards to level). From our count there appeared to be only three 50 amp sites: the others were 30’s. They have one washer, one dryer and two complete restrooms, one of which is handicapped accessible, and one shade tree site but it’s not level. No Wi-Fi but our Verizon air card worked well. No trash cans so we put our full bags in the laundry area. We found, per the managers recommendation, a really good restaurant called Aubrey’s at Exit 112 on Conner Road. On the plus side, this campground was quite unlike the noisy campground on the other side of Exit 117 ( quarry trucks ). This is good as a stopover park but not much more unless some corrections are made such as Wi-Fi, re-level the sites, more 50 amp hookups and trashcans. Having said that, in our estimation it’s almost on a par with the very few surrounding campgrounds and this is in large part due to the very accommodating hostess. Our return to this park would depend on seeing what, if any, of the above suggested improvements get made. - 5thwheeler

Small, quiet park with friendly owner and campers. Was able to set around a camp fire at night and relax. - User1850

A new RV park great for stop-overs or long term stays, just north of Knoxville. Just close enough to everything, but still has that country surroundings. The owners were friendly, the place was clean and neat. A great place for Vol's fans to park. - acresofitems

Nice sites very clean facilities. Best part, some killer trails behind sites for hiking or if you have game single track mountain bike. Super value. - JGV

Overall good park. Office helpful. Clean and well maintained. Only complaint with Site 1 was not level at all. One of the worst sites we've had for not being level. To get or motorhome level, one rear tire was jacked into the air. This is an Escapes Park. No other discounts are available. Not much nearby. Close to I75 and good for overnight stays. No Cable or WiFi. Verizon cell service good. Verizon Data: download speed 11.03 Mbps and 2.68 Mbps upload speeds. We would stay here again. - Rufas

Convenient to I-75 and good for an overnight stop. Sites were close but fairly level. Would stay at this campground again when in the area. - Lane Wise

My rate reflects weekly rate. This campground is aged and at least half its sites seem to be permanent campers. Some units have an aluminum carport built over, some just have tarps, lots of stuff around them....I even saw a refrigerator outside one. My site was sloped and narrow. Could not use the picnic table because it sloped so bad....it was also old and moldy. Ladies restroom by the pool was aged but clean. Only 2 shower stalls and very tight. Couldn't get the cable to work but got a lot of channels using my antenna. Office people were very friendly, the park had a free BBQ of pulled pork, cold salads and beans. Guests were requested to bring a dessert. Very nice. - RVingMe

The good: Close to I-75. Staff very friendly. Good cable. Wi-Fi signal was strong but I used my jet pack. Cement pads and nicely wooded. Many pull thru sites and all had fire ring and picnic table. All hook ups are close. The Not so good: They don't guide you to your site. Turns are tight. Many trees so could not use awning. I had a 44 foot site but had to park rig down hill to keep toad hooked up so was way off level. 30 amp breaker would not work so used the 50 w/adapter. Park voltage was 113 with the a/c on so used my autoformer. Assigned site 83 but somebody was on it. Moved to site 81. Staff was spray painting so could not use a bigger site that was more $. Many 15-20 year old permanent rigs with lots of junk but the people seemed friendly. Our fire ring had broken down wood furniture in it. This park was ok for an overnight but I did not care for the issues we had. Took us about 30 minutes just to get a site and drove around the park 3 times. We will not be back. - wduff

Staff was nice enough. Pool was clean. Campsites were not identified so it was tricky finding where we were supposed to be. There were no garbage receptacles at the sites. It appears there are very many permanent residents there and most of their places are terribly junked up. The view from our campsite was ridiculous (I posted a picture). There was one bathroom/shower in the area we camped. It doesn't have proper ventilation so everything in there stayed steamy wet from hot showers. There were two showers by the pool and one didn't have any hot water but they were clean. It was okay for our stay (because we were only there to sleep) but I don't think I would want to bring a family here. - Cindy P4

The park is clean and well maintained. Our gravel pull thru site was long enough to stay hooked up with our 42' 5th wheel. Park is located conveniently off the Interstate and close to shopping and restaurants. Great free cable, wi-fi, picnic table and fire ring. Nice size dog park, pool, and play area for kids. The staff here are amazing. We ended up here due to maintenance issues with our truck. The staff helped us with the many obstacles that came up during our stay. We would definitely stay here again! - travelswithpuppies

Stopped for overnight. Small campground, but well kept. Check in fast and efficient. Escort to site. Roads gravel, easy to navigate with big rig. Sites level, packed gravel a bit narrow, long enough not to unhook. Park wifi usable with full park. Park cable. Many satellite friendly sites ours was (29). Good Verizon and T-Mobile signal. Grass between sites, garbage can at each site. Gas station at entrance to park good for gassers and diesel. Park has a pool and K-9 park, laundry, small camp store. FHU's mid site and well maintained. Park staff friendly and helpful. Would stay here again. - wtravlr1

This was an overnight stop for us. The pull through site was a narrow but long enough to stay hooked up. Trash can on each site was a nice touch. We didn't use any of the amenities, but this appears to be a good campground as a base camp if you are in the Knoxville area to visit. We would stay again. - Jtroop

Courteous ranger. West CG preferred to east. Numerous hiking trails in park and nice visitors center. I recommend park. Sites have adequate separation. - Falco

This park needs some TLC. We stayed in the west area in site #6. The approach to the camping was not too bad as we disconnected our Jeep at the office. The site was not level so we used boards under the front wheels as the leveling jacks could not compensate for the pitch. We couldn't get all the way back into the site as they had timbers that would interfere with our stairs when they opened. The bathrooms had tons of spiders everywhere! You had to be careful bending down in the shower or else you were in a web....I used the handicapped stall as it was the only shower that the temperature could be adjusted. Also used the hand held wand to spray the bugs away before getting in, had to put the sprayer on the rail as the holder didn't work. The screen windows had hundreds of dead bugs stuck to the outside. The walk to the showers went by sites with broken benches, trash and cigarettes in the firepits, and picnic tables that you would need to scrape the dirt and debris from underneath before using. The volleyball court had broken concrete pieces in the playing field...ouch. Simple neglect. ...I don't mind old outdated showers but clean is important! On the good side our site was spacious with beautiful trees! Loved hammocking. Not very many people in the campground which was lovely. - Blowfishqueen

This park is heavily shaded in most areas. Nice in hot weather but there is little grass as a consequence. Most sites are on the small side. There are a few that will take a 35 to 40 foot unit.
Water and electric hook ups were in good working order. Many sites have paved pads. Sites have large concrete picnic tables on concrete pads. There is a playground for the kids.
There is an extensive hiking trail system from the campground.
Negatives: no near by dumpster and dump station is down the road not within the campground itself.
This campground is called the "west" campground. The "east" campground is located near the marina and dam. It is more open and grasses. The sites look quite narrow but will accommodate large RVs. The road going into that campground is very narrow. Caution must be used not to run off pavement.
The road into the west campground is very good however there are a couple of switchbacks that are manageable. - petendoll

A bit too close. I stay at state parks to avoid the parking lot effect and am disappointed. Neighbors encroached on our site to make things more uncomfortable. - Castorbean

Great park for children. Basketball court, playground, swimming area, and hiking trails entertain the kids. Very quiet. - pwebbsr

This is a state park, it only has 50 sites and some are small. It would be tight on a large rig would have some trouble getting around the area. For smaller units this place is excellent. You can get lake side sites and even put your boat right next to your site on Norris Lake. Bathrooms were clean and the staff and rangers are very friendly. Plenty for the kids to do here, almost all sites are shady and plenty of room around the sites. Picnic tables at every site along with a garbage can for every site. Very quiet campground with mostly level spots. - Rheatherly

Very well managed, clean campground. Not a "resort". On the cleanest lake in TN. Staff very helpful. Boat ramp nearby as are walking trails. Have what appears to be a well stocked store, but I was there in off season so they were scaling back some on supplies.
Some of the most friendly people I have ever met. Follow their directions to campground. Can be tricky. Boats are welcome and it looks like there is plenty of shore to tie up there. They have a beach area also. - wvbassmistress

I wish I could give this park a higher rating but there are too many negatives. The drive in from I75 is up and across the mountain on narrow curvy roads. We arrived on a Sunday and the office was closed. The entrance to the campground is very steep and we didn't even venture down the mountain to the lower sites. We chose a site below the office. The sites slope up hill from front to back and needed several blocks to level. The sewer would not drain as it sloped up to the outlet. The sites are very short and not big rig friendly. The new sites are poorly designed and some have fallen away due to erosion. The staff is extremely friendly and the office staff were anxious to make sure we had everything we needed. The view is beautiful and they are in the process of adding a restaurant to the marina. The newer section of this campground is poorly designed and it needs to be totally rethought. I doubt that we will return. - portliz

New owners and staff running the place were very nice. You can really tell there has been a lot of money and time spent in this park to clean it up. A lot has been accomplished. The bath houses are new and very nice as is the pool and lodge. If you have AT&T cell service you're out of luck for service but who cares? The campground is quiet. I wish we had direct view of the lake but overall I thoroughly enjoyed our time here (10 days). New electric, water and sewer are very big pluses in my book. We have a large rig, little tricky getting in here due to the terrain. Would come back again - User1966

We stayed at this campground under the old management and it was terrible. Small sites and lots of older permanent trailers. New owners have gotten rid of the old trailers and is trying to improve the sites. We have a 41 foot DP motorhome and found that the only big rig sites are the NEW gravel sites just below the office. These new gravel sites are level, wide and open for satellite reception. They do not have cable TV. There are very few RV campgrounds around the Norris Lake/Dam area so it was nice to find one with a marina that could accept our big rig. The campground has a new pool but, a lot of work still needs to be done. I hope the new owner continues to improve the campground. - brobertson1999

Off I75 and in a great location with a nice lake BUT the narrow roads and hairpin curves for a 40 ft. motorhome and a toad is not for the faint hearted. Also, if you book here get directions from the manager. If you follow your gps you may never be heard from again!. The campground is in tiers--at least 3 levels with us staying in the only one we could---at the top and by the office. Sites are very narrow and need redoing. Supposedly there are new owners who plan to completely redo this park. We never saw the pool but there are lots of permanent residents down toward the lake with very untidy yards. I don't believe a motorhome of more than 32 feet could navigate the steep levels to the lower areas closer to the lake. Only 4 miles from I75 this park offers great potential and it will take great money to trim trees, widen roads, and level up these sites which are more suited to short tagalongs or pop up campers. We will not stay here again until improvements are made to accommodate a larger rig. - leciel19

This park has a lot of potential but is very poorly managed. A lot of permanent campers on sites close to the water, which is fine because it is on the water and the lake is their main draw. The permanent sites were poorly kept by campers and staff. We stayed on a newer campsite near the office and away from the permanent guests. These sites were built right on top of each other, if you wanted a picnic table or fire ring you had to go find one. Most campsites were washed out from heavy spring rain, and there is no staff to fix it. This park has absolutely no employees outside of the office. You can tell, because nothing gets ever gets repaired. The neighbor told us that the sites have been washed out for months, and grass had only been mowed once all season. It's a shame, because it could be a very nice park with a some TLC. We won't be back. - User578

The sites are ridiculously small and cramped, very close together. A few random picnic tables dot the campground, but not at every site. The lake is full of litter. The lakeside sites are soggy and mosquito-ridden, and half of each site is unusable as you have to allow other guests to drive through your site to reach theirs. The "play area" is a bunch of logs. The pool is tiny. The "toilet" is a port-a-potty. No power or water at tent sites. Constant noise of traffic, day and night. - Eclipse chaser

I didn't heed the reviews and took a chance. BAD decision!!! We were crammed into a spot between two trees with about a foot between each. This was a dirt spot, no gravel, no concrete or pavement of any kind. On top of that, it was on a very steep incline. So steep that I had to put the truck in 4X4 to get into it. Had it been raining or wet, we would not have made it. Did I mention crammed in?! Oh my...I have never seen such tight spaces. We could hear everything the couple next to us were saying, smell the food they were cooking inside!
I've said all you need to know to NOT go here. If you decide to take the chance, you only have yourself to blame...I tried to warn you. - TheTideRide

The park appears to be more of a full-timer homestead, than the traveling RV'rs.
The staff was accommodating, I requested a river spot and they changed our site, not a problem.
Beautiful river spot with nice patio. - Dksnapshots
