4 Parks near Hornsby, Tennessee

Goofiest campground I've seen. First loop read "Trailers only" so I went to the next loop. There the sign read "Horse trailers only" and so I continued on. The third camping area was for "Tenters only". Now I had ran out of campground loops. Went to the store and no one was there. Turned around and went all the way back to the "Trailers only" camp and after three spots found one fairly level. Later when the Ranger came by I explained what I went through. He agreed it was confusing, but "trailers" meant RV's also. He also said I needed to go a bit further past the store to find the ranger check-in station, although no signs to that effect were about. Since I was already set up he said just to come by in the morning and pay, which I did. The lady inside was at a complete loss as to how to input my stay into the computer since I was leaving. I left my $$ on the counter and wished her good luck. Bathroom/showers were well worn but usable. Oh the joys of camping. - Traveler John

This is the WORST State Park we have ever been in. Built many years ago, nothing has been done to the sites since, including cleaning. There are very few that will take a rig of more than 20 feet, and that will be very unlevel. There are a few pull-throughs on the right hand loop as you pull in. Note: DO NOT use left loop if you are more than 20 feet, as there is a very short and sharp gully that could result in high-siding. The Horse Campground is very nice - with all the amenities you miss in the regular area - but you must have a horse. The Rangers were indifferent and seldom seen, acting as if taking your money was too much effort. Take a miss on this, unless you feel you must play the Nicklaus golf course. And then stay somewhere else! - ccook

We camp here often- it's very close to home. The addition this year of a camp host is certainly a nice touch. The bathrooms could use a little updating. There is not a great deal to do here, but a nice escape- very limited cell phone service, and data card connection is spotty at best. Will camp here again. - jmaddox

Rate reflects Thousand Trails. As with most NACO parks, this reserve has plenty of trees and is rustic. We used as a base for the greater Memphis area. Many of the sites are definitely only for smaller campers/tents, but when we went there were plenty of open larger spots. Note that the 50 Amp sites did not have sewer. We found a 50 Amp site though close to the pool, with nice shade, yet with satellite access. The pool was very clean and nice. The showers near the pool were clean but the bathroom/showers near the site did not look like they had been cleaned well for a while. - Bay Area Early retirees

Rate reflects Thousand Trails. The campground says they have 50amp but there are only about 4 of them. They say they have sewer but again its only about 4 of them. They do have 2 dump sites, one per section. Even though they say they have almost 300 sites, most of them are not usable for anything other than a pop up or tent. We were very disappointed with this campground in the Thousand Trails portfolio. To find an appropriate site its best to stop after you check in and walk the campground. Both areas. Many of the sites are very skinny with a drop off on one or both sides. There are some nice sites. We found one on the lake that was very nice. The roads are terrible which is another reason to walk the campground first to find you site. And their idea of pull thru sites is also just minimal. I would have to be pretty desperate to stay here again. - krisbw

We originally didn't find this because in the PA book this is listed under Sualsbury. We were expecting a resort but found a property that fell far short. We agree with previous comments about its once glory days. Pluses are it's very quiet and not crowded. The pool is huge! The scenery is great, and if you come here with kids there are several things you can do with them. Minuses are that Wi-Fi is very slow and only available at the lodge. Roads are in poor shape and the atmosphere is almost like a ghost town. Make sure you bring a flyswatter for the horseflies. PS...don't let your GPS bring you the wrong way (along a narrow, bumpy old state road). Use the route 7 route! - hmthomas1

Most sites are back-in. Shaded sites seem to be taken by seasonal resort members. Only a few antenna channels. No wifi in the campground but it is available at the clubhouse. Clubhouse also has Direct TV. All utilities are at the rear of the site. Some sites are FHU, others are W/E only. Good water pressure. Catch and release fishing. Good spacing between sites. Not a bad place to stay. I guess the owners have made a lot of improvements since the previous reviewers posted. - TH travelers

I stayed two days at this Park using a Passport Rate.
I asked to be close to WiFi, so they stuck me in an area that had not been mowed or maintained for weeks. I checked the high grass for snakes.
I got PBS from Mississippi over the air, nothing else would stay tuned. The WIFI was 1 bar and faded around 8PM.
I made the mistake of eating some Asian Chicken Nuggets at their restaurant. They seemed tasty. They gave me diarrhea. I happened to glance in their kitchen as I was paying my bill. Fryer area was disgusting. I turned them into the state health department. That was before I got sick. - Author

Rate reflects Coast to Coast fee. The term "Resort" is a laugh. The young couple running the resort are trying to clean up the shabby grass and sites. A lot were long term people working a pipeline near by. The pool is great. There are many ATV trails and it looks like it would be a nice fall place with changing colors and they have hay rides in the fall. While there their sewer lines had crashed so no sewer hook up. Only one site with 50 amp. The dump station was trashy and hard to get to as the grass/weeds needed trimming around the dump site. This place has a lot of potential but needs a lot of work. No, we will not stay again. Also, a major hike to the dumpster to place trash. - dfw
