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.

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.

On arrival we registered at the office with a less than friendly man. The park is more than 70% seasonal or full time campers. The campground is clean but looks old. The sites are narrow and short making it difficult to extend both a slide and awning.It is in a convenient location right off of I75. We planned to stay 5 nights. However, after the first night our AC stopped working so we went to a hotel for 2 nights leaving the camper at the park. We left 2 days early. They would not refund any payment. We will not stay here again. We camped at Volunteer Park Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Nice place for a stopover. Entire campsite is on a hill, but they have made the individual sites somewhat level. A significant number of residents are fairly permanent but there are still many that are not. Just stayed here for one night. Seemed a little over-priced. We camped at Volunteer Park Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We have used this park a couple times while traveling. It is a good stop over point and a pleasant evening. The number of pull throughs make it very convenient. Most sites will need some help from you to level your rig, however. While there have been numerous posts detailing mistreatment by the camp staff, I've yet to experience anything but a friendly office manager. There is a waste management facility next door which will help you wake up in the morning which is fine if you want to get rolling, but probably not so fine if you're looking to sleep in. We camped at Volunteer Park Family Campground in a Motorhome.

The minute we pulled up the staff was there to help. Very friendly owner and staff. We were in the area for the Honda Wing Ding and the best part of the whole experience was staying at this park! Shady and quiet, anything we needed they were ready to help with. We will be back. We camped at Volunteer Park Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The (New) owner was the most rudest person I have ever met at any RV park I have stayed in. I was to be a long term camper (work). No cable, they ran a cable from two sites down through the trees. I stayed one night and I was out of there. The park was mixed with Mobile homes. Staff was untrained. A much nicer, friendly staff right down the street. I would not recommend this camp ground to any friend. We camped at Volunteer Park Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Barking dogs. Shrieking kids in pool. Sub-par showers. Pull through not level. I'd give it a pass next time. We camped at Volunteer Park Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Park is on a hill and sites were close together. South of the park is a quarry business and a land fill so many trucks driving right by the park from 6:00AM til late afternoon. Park had just changed hands so natural confusion of new staff was evident. We stayed here for 3 weeks getting work done on the RV. Wi-Fi was slow due to all the insurance adjusters in the park for the storm damage. A couple of nights no Wi-Fi at all and office is only open from 10:00AM till 8:00PM. Would stay here again but only for a day or two. We used Passport America for our entire stay which was nice. We camped at Volunteer Park Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed one night while in transit through the Knoxville area. Park was clean, but unpaved. Sites are of reasonable size and accommodate larger RV's. Water, electric and sewer worked fine, as did Wi-Fi. There is a smallish pool (we did not use it). Not much else here for activities and the area is pretty rural/rustic (Waste Management facility is next door). Afternoon and night were quiet/peaceful, but early morning had a fair amount of truck traffic on the local road adjacent to the park. Very convenient to I-75 and there were several interesting places to visit in the area just north of the park (e.g. Norris Dam). We camped at Volunteer Park Family Campground in a Motorhome.

This park is an easy access off I-75. It makes a great quiet spot for several nights. Spaces are short; plan on unhooking your tow. A subtantial number of sites are long term, but we have stayed twice with no problems. Site was pull through concrete pad with water, sewer, 50amp, and cable. The park is Passport America, so you can save 50% if you're a member. The office was clean and the staff friendly. We camped at Volunteer Park Family Campground in a Motorhome.
