9 Parks near Jasper, Tennessee
Jun 2015 - $23.00
Pros: Beautiful scenery, quiet (ok, trains across the lake rumbled some), on water, nice beach, excellent playground for the kids, clean and neat, LOTS of trash cans. Cons: WiFi only in a hotspot near office, no cable, Over the Air TV spotty, sites not all easily leveled. This is a TVA sponsored campground. We've stayed at a similar one last year and this one seems to have the same issue: they cater to seasonals or LONG term rentals. When you see a lot of campers with insulated water hoses in June with temps in the 90's, you get to understand that those who want to come for a weekend or even a week's stay may have a tough time getting in. There are NO reservations. Hmmm, so once in, guess you just stay. Yeah, they have weekly, monthly, and seasonal rates. IF you can get in it is a lovely place. We took a chance, and to be fair, when I called and talked to the manager, she said to call on our way up and she would confirm if a space was available. The campground itself if nice; the policy of favoring long term stays is disheartening. - Too-wow

Clean, friendly folks with some long term "residents" with easy access from exit 158 of I 24, with a boat ramp, playground and a beautiful setting. The access is via a TVA road with the entrance on the left of Shellmound Road. Once in a while there is a bit of noise from a railroad across the lake and a boat. Very peaceful. - DelK

I understand the previous manager past away recently and the current management is terrible. No instructions where to register. Poorly maintained. bathrooms /showers are atrocious and no supplies. Trash left in fire rings and in the water. Will no use this facility in the future. - rvreviewer2015

Love this park, Close to I-24, right on the Tn River. Well marked and level sites. No picnic table. Great value. Just wish county would up grade comfort station. Will be back. - pink poodle

Very close to the interstate - a lot of road noise day and night. No laundry. Goose droppings everywhere. Friendly enough staff. The lake is pretty. We would not stay here again. - User3099

We had a water site and it was not worth the $40.00 it cost . As stated before, water is a scum pond. Lots of noise in morning. A lot of long-term sites. - This Old Man

Not sure if I should even give this park a 3. Lots of long termers that live full time. If you want to sleep in, forget it - there's motorcycles and loud trucks leaving early in the a.m. There is NO cable unless you want to make a $100 deposit for the box. And you don't pick up anything over the air.
By the time we realized the paper the office gave us didn't have a WiFi code on it, was too late for us to go to the office and ask. Couldn't call as there is NO cell signal in the park.
The restaurant is only open on Saturday nights.
This part of the lake needs attention. Green algae way out in to the water.
The putt putt course had caution tape all around it. The pool was closed. The roads are not in good shape. No picnic tables at the sites. Odd layouts for hookups. You could tell at one time this park could have been a destination with lots to do, but it's worn and thread bare now.
Be very careful driving in and leaving as the road is basically single lane with ditches right on the edge.
Why did we stay here? The park where we wanted to stay was full, and we needed to be in the area. We would not stay here again - if we needed to be in the area & could not get our preferred park, we'd stay farther away & drive more. - 3catstravel

RV Park is set back away from traffic, very very quiet, sites are spacious, cable with zillion channels, long termers are nice, water front sites are for overnites in summer, but river view still there for other sites inside rows. Staff are excellent, Joy in particular!! Pool is nice, marinas on the river, with boat rentals and cabin rentals. I had a problem with a work contract there in Chatanooga and the manager was gracious enough to give me a refund, they didn't have to do that, but they did. Sure the geese are around but all you have to do is hose down your site, they stay on the river and come ashore to walk around. Some of the sites don't yet have the new cable connections in but the staff are in the process of completing this. All in all its a great place with mountains on each side of the marina, so cell coverage is scanty, but I had no problem with their WIFI and I was pretty far back, its an issue they try to work on constantly. I definitely will try to come back just to relax!! - Ms Mary

Friendly, concerned staff. There was a severe weather warning while we were there and the staff notified every camper that we should go to the nearby cave (walking distance) if necessary. Trash was picked up at the site often and the entire campground was clean. We used the laundry and found it clean and reasonable. Conveniently located to Lookout Mountain and downtown. Would definitely stay there again. Good value. - Rimdel

We stayed ten days in a 39' RV with family staying in Cabin #1. Site was level, water and electricity no problem. Site was a bit small, and was in what should have been the continuation of a roadway, so folks were frequently cutting through.
When we made reservations in October, they advertised go-karts, mini-golf and a clubhouse, the primary reasons we choose to go there with two young children. None of these amenities were available during our stay.
Office staff were unfriendly. I was clearly bothering her each time I went into the office, and she did as little as possible, all three times, to answer questions or help. This was especially irritating as they removed all the trash receptacles mid-week, without notice, and we didn't know what to do with our trash.
I would take my business elsewhere given an option. - Sheryl E

This campground is under new management and it is a good thing as this campground need some TLC bad. Sites are gravel and very unlevel.
Cable needs updating as what is listed is not where it is suppose to be. Good for an overnighter only until they clean up the place. - Biggyrat

We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend with our daughter and 3 granddaughters ages 6,6, and 11. We chose this CG due to the proximity to our home & the amount of activities for the kids as this was their first camping experience. The staff was very nice and accommodating and the CG has a salt water pool, gem mining, jumping pillow and hiking trails. It is a bit off the main highway, but a nice quiet location, especially for touring Chattanooga. The TV had only 10 channels and the wifi was so-so. It was obvious that the owners take pride in keeping the grounds neat. We enjoyed our stay here. - quilt lady

Campground was ok for an overnight. Pretty good ride from interstate but well marked, just follow the signs. We had a pull thru site but was blocked by someone who came in late and parked in a pull thru that blocked us from hooking up our truck. With a lot of maneuvering we were able to hook up and back out of our site. Very limited cable channels. Quite a few full timer there. We would stay again but in a different site. - southernsky

The campground is located off I-59, but far enough away to prevent traffic noise. It is convenient to Lookout Mountain and Chattanooga, which is why we selected it. The staff was helpful and friendly. We were not escorted to our site, but it was within sight of the office. Facilities were typical KOA, but adequate for our needs. The laundry facilities were very good. WiFi was slow. Sites were gravel and reasonably level. We would camp here again, but would look at other campgrounds near Chattanooga since we've now done Lookout Mountain. - TxDiver

Overall this is a good camp ground. It is really close to a lot of attractions in Chattanooga, and the campground has great trails. The views are beautiful and can only imagine how amazing it will be in the fall. There are two camping areas. For us, we liked the west rim. Sites are much larger, has more trees and feels a lot more private. A few things they could improved on are the roads. They are very narrow with drop offs on the sides. This makes backing in some of the sites very difficult. Also for some reason we don't understand, the dump station for the west rim is not near the camp ground. It's a couple miles away on a very hilly, twisty road. The east rim's dump station is near, so for that side it is not a problem. The bathhouse for the west rim are very small and old. We will camp here again. - sunny3014

We chose the East Rim as it is close to the canyon/waterfall trails and overlooks. Most of the sites are good size, gravel pads, nice picnic table, some are shaded. Some sites have terraces with woods behind. We really liked Site 55. The East Rim sites are more open and you can see your neighbors. The restroom is clean but very outdated and (showers especially) were very small - not ADA compliant. You have to go to the West rim for ADA facilities. West Rim sites are shadier and more spacious.
The trail down to the waterfalls is definitely worth doing (even though there are 600 steps total, they are spaced far enough apart, that coming back up wasn't bad at all. Not much around so have all your supplies before going into park, although there is a gas station, cafe and little shop not far from entrance. - On the Road again 11

We camped at the West Rim Campground, sites are more spacious and many pull-throughs. Semi-private, lots of trees, level. Power, water good, roads need some work. East Rim Campground more congested. Many hiking trails especially down to the waterfall. Word of caution, many steps down to the Canyon floor with numerous rest stops but worth the climb down. - leadshot
