We stayed here 4 nights while we were in town for a football game. The sites are on a hill under the trees but terraced and level. The laundry was clean and well equipped. Wash 1.75; dry 1.00. All staff we encountered were pleasant. Our site did not allow satellite signal; cable had a weak signal. We camped at Volunteer Park Family Campground in a Motorhome.

We came through here for one night while on the road this summer. There is a nice area for tents apart from the RV spaces. The spots could be a bit more level but the fire pits, benches and available power/water make up for it. The store is stocked with reasonably priced items. This price was for one van, 3 people and 3 tents in one spot. Alcohol permitted and no out of state fees make this a good spot. We camped at Volunteer Park Family Campground in a Tent.

We had to stay here 3 mo for wife operation at UT Medical Center. The owner put on a pig pickin while and this guy can cook a hog. We stayed in the monthly section, the park is quiet and the pool was great. The only problem in our section was dog poop not being picked by a few dog owners there at the park. Other than that the park has easy back outs and very nice pull- throughs, fire pits, did I mention the cookouts, O yes. Staff is very nice as well as the owner. We stay here every time we have to go to Knoxville. They went out of their way to keep us in the same spot when we had to stay a lot longer than we planned to. We thank them for there caring and kindness. We camped at Volunteer Park Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is alot to do in Knoxville and the area. Heiskell is about 15 miles north of Knoxville and 20 min from UT Medical Center.

We were here for overnight twice on our way to and from North Carolina. Staff was very friendly and welcoming. They had a pool but we did not use. It was clean and well kept. There were no dogs without leashes. They did have a nature walk to walk your dog as long as you pick up after them.

We will stay again when passing through. We camped at Volunteer Park Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Poor sites. Sloping toward front. Worn park. Playground equipment for very smsll children (<60#). CATV did not work, told it was analog only. WiFi would sync then disconnect (inside & outside) - we were <50ft from antenna. Hookups at front of pull thru site. RV must be on pad or major sloping at front; thus, you must unhook toad (not my idea of pull thru). Entire site on slope, including picnic table. Too expensive for his park. $25-28 more appropriate. We camped at Volunteer Park Family Campground in a Motorhome.

We like the park because of the easy access from the highway, that's the main reason. The staff are very nice and friendly. Pull thru's without sewers are near the main road , and its very noisy early morning due to the quarry and the WM company right next door. The trucks start just after 5 AM so no need for an alarm. Internet OK, TV on antenna good. Pull through is long but not very wide. We camped at Volunteer Park Family Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here overnight on our way back from a family vacation in Florida. The campground has long pull throughs so we were able to keep our truck hooked to our camper during our stay. Camp sites were paved and had trees that provided shade. A nice, clean park, I would stay here again if I was in the area. We camped at Volunteer Park Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Pull-through sites are not very level. Sites were only 30 amp. Water hookup was situated in toward front of RV. They are not part of Passport America and owner was rude when asked about it. We camped at Volunteer Park Family Campground in a Motorhome.

A little expensive for just staying two night. Too cold for the pool. Gravel sites. OK as we were visiting family; therefore, not using the park except for sleeping. We camped at Volunteer Park Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Second year we have stopped traveling through. Easy access to I-75. Some road noise and earth movers across road during day. There are 4 super sites that have a concrete parking pad that they charge extra for. We camped at Volunteer Park Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Older park with uneven sites. I thought we asked for 50amp water/elec only, but ended up in a pull through with 30amps. Also didn't get water because the guy who pulled in next to us used our water spigot after we unhooked and went to refuel. Oh well, that's why we carry extra water. Definitely won't stay there again, will drive a little farther if we go that direction again. We camped at Volunteer Park Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Overpriced for what they provide. Original price we reserved for a so-called "super site" was not honored when we arrived. We were told it was mistake. We didn't see any sites we would consider "super"anyway. Lots of construction truck traffic. Our pull-through site was so unlevel. The front wheels of the rig were off the ground. Our 34' rig plus tow vehicle took up every inch of the site. We ended up unhooking and backing up the rig to be on the cement pad and parking the car in front. It was adequate for an overnight stop, but nothing more. We camped at Volunteer Park Family Campground in a Motorhome.

3 nights at $20PA, 1 at $36 Stayed 6 days in a 42' MH, easy to get to park from I75. Small sites, tight to get in and out, on a hill, sites are not level. Probably 70% full time. Trash company next door starts rolling at 1am. Trees block Sat. Installing cable but not active when we were there. Good, Wifi worked, sewer on site, good laundry facility, 50a, friendly park owner staff. Would stay here again. We camped at Volunteer Park Family Campground in a Motorhome.

The rate reflects Passport America. The sites were a little short for our tow dolly, needed a couple of blocks but paved. They were also narrow but we were touring during the day. Quite a few full time residents, but not a problem. The bathrooms were older but very clean. Convenient to I-75 exit. We camped at Volunteer Park Family Campground in a Motorhome.
