The folks at the office were nice, but they had lost our reservation, lucky for us they were not full. The park is old and needs TLC. The roads are tight and hard to drive on. Our site was not level and were not able to get completely level. The sites are tiny, we could not extend our awning here. There are many permanent residents with junky rigs here. We found trash, broken glass and other debris around the park. We would not return. We camped at Volunteer Park Family Campground in a Motorhome.

We had pre booked a 30 amp site but due to high temperature we were able to get a 50 amp pull thru site on check in. Very helpful friendly girl on check in. Campsite rustic and many permeant sites, our site concrete and level, those at the back of campsite looked less level. Swimming pool, cable TV and Wifi very good. Showers and bathrooms rustic but very clean. Easy access from interstate but no highway noise. We camped at Volunteer Park Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tight sites for big rig. Leaving the park is difficult if you are towing. Got jackknifed and had to unhook car. Be aware of sharp turns and uneven sites. Staff friendly and restrooms clean but old. We camped at Volunteer Park Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Arrived late and left early so did not get to check out store. Registration was closed. Ended up calling after I got home to give them my cc number.

OK for overnight stay but had some difficulty finding level spot. Maybe in daylight it would not have been such a problem. Might stay again if I just needed place with electric to spend the night.

Roadway in campground was tight in dark. OK with Class-C not sure about large Class-A or large 5th wheel. We camped at Volunteer Park Family Campground in a Motorhome.

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.

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.
