We have camped at this park for years. It is under new ownership and they are just as friendly as the former owner and have improved the park tremendously with improved landscaping and the addition of a pool and bathhouse. Gravel site with picnic table. We are going back in September 2016 and November 2016. - Pam J

We had a great experience here. There are lots of family friendly amenities... a pool, pond, driving range, swing set, lots of grass. The owners were attentive and available. There were a few permanent residents, but the sites were clean and not too junky. Bathrooms were some of the best I've encountered in a campground. Each site had its own picnic table, all of which seemed to be in great shape. The campground is located about 5 minutes off the interstate - close enough to be easy to get to, but far enough to not have any major road noise. There is a good Mexican restaurant right down the road, otherwise there is not much close by other than the gas stations right at the exit. - wanderfilledlife

This park is clean and complete; the owners are on site and working to make improvements, a new pool, a golf driving range and plenty of walking paths. Perfect place to stop after a day on the road. - Bruce and Janette

Call for reservations if you have a big rig! There are only a few large sites.
We could not use satellite because of trees. The owner told us they could not guarantee it when we made reservations. WiFi and Verizon were good.
Well kept campground with great owners. - camprats

Wonderful tidy campground. We were given a goody bag and local paper on checkin.
Did have to use a leveling board at our pull-through site. - AL RVer

We stayed for one night but wouldn't mind spending a few days. Reception area is where it begins, and this definitely got things off to a good start. Escorted to large pull-through site after registration, with gentleman checking to make sure everything was in order. Showed me where to best point dish for satellite reception. All services worked fine, with very good wi-fi. The park was clean, quiet and well maintained. - Voyageurs

We camped here in the winter and were among the few non-permanent campers here. The pool, pony rides, restaurant, and other summer features weren't available as well (naturally), so I can't speak to those. Everything in that part of Tennessee is hilly, so you can't fault the campground for being on a hillside as well. We arrived late and left early so we didn't meet the staff in person. That all said, there was something droopy about the place. The roads and sites weren't well maintained. We were on route to visiting someone further south in Tennessee and this was a perfectly adequate stopping spot. - ShoreXplorers

I would have to agree with most that is not the best KOA but certainly not the worst. Friendliness of the staff boosts its rating significantly. I've been here before and finding a way to level my rig is always an issue. Seems to me they could get a tractor with a blade on it and level these sites a little better. - 67fisher

You may need fifty feet of water hose and the same for television cable depending on the site you are assigned.
The site we were assigned was level which has been a rarity on our trip.
The staff are the most pleasant and accommodating that we have come along in a long time. They make you feel at home and do their best to run a top notch camper friendly campground. It is not about them, it is about you.
They ride around the campground quite a bit and are always picking up trash which is very nice. We camped here Labor Day weekend and they had different activities throughout the weekend, including free dogs and burgers on Sunday.
My wife attempted to feed the nanny goat but she wasn't having any of that business. I guess she isn't partial to carrots and cauliflower.
They have a nice pool and there is a bouncing pillow. Lots of things to do for the kiddies as well as the adults.
We definitely would return here. - Jackson W

Timberfell Lodge is a clothing optional campground and lodge for men only. - elmo
Jun 2016 - $28.00
This well developed, popular campground is situated in a deciduous forest in two major sections: lower and upper. The lower portion is mostly level along the Doe River, and more open among trees and lawn. The upper is steeply sloped and more deeply forested. All site pads are asphalt paved surrounded by gravel, with fire rings and concrete picnic tables. Sites are spacious, but many of the pads are made for small campers and tents. Carefully choose the lengths of sites online. Most upper sites will need levelers. You should know your site number before arriving, particularly if you arrive after 5 PM. No after hours site list is posted at the campground office. Bath houses were clean, often on steep slopes. Electric and water worked fine. No over-the-air digital TV. Sprint phones had no service in the upper loops, but the campground office had Sprint and extended service at 3 bars. WiFi worked fine within 100 feet of the office, and a second and third transmitter was in the lower loop (but not in the upper loops). Quiet, dark at night. Occasional patrol by law enforcement. Quite cool temperatures for June. Lots of hiking trails,
playgrounds, fields, a farmstead, nice visitor center, weekend ranger activities. Songbirds abundant. Ecosystem rich in biodiversity. There are some ticky tacky issues. A single dump station for nearly 80 campers is easily overrun at check out hours. Most written or posted rules go unenforced. Non-campers cruise the grounds, creating added conflicts with walkers and bicyclists and noise. Signs say "Registered Campers Only", but without active checks, people drive right past the office. Few campers clean up after their pets, even next to the river. Nasty. Multiple cars parked at many campsites instead of using overflow. Golf cart cruising. Speeding was an issue at times. Regardless of the bad points, it is truly the crown jewel of Tennessee's State Parks, and we will return. - The Happy Traveler

I hate to slam the place because I'm sure lots of people like places like this, judging by the crowded conditions! The campground is busy, crowded, noisy. There's little space between sites. Kids running everywhere. Trucks & cars jammed into sites & between sites. We pulled up to our site, took one look at the lack of space and privacy, and promptly left. We gave up our 2 day fee just to go find somewhere more suitable for us. Don't get me wrong... I have kids too, but just like a little more of a feeling of being "in the woods" when I camp.... Not jammed up with 100's of others! It looks like there's lots to do here, but if you like a little privacy & peace, keep looking. - Mistersandman

Camping at Roan Mountain State Park is vastly improved with the inception of the new reservation system. The disagreements between campers and long waiting lines are over, yielding a much more pleasant camping experience. Campground hosts and rangers are now very friendly and inviting. All the roads and sites in the campground have been recently repaved. Some leveling may still be required on the hillside sites. Restrooms and showers are very clean. RV sites in the lower loop on the east side of the Doe River (sites 1-40) are classified as "premium" sites at a higher price with no discounts. The hillside sites on the west side of the Doe River (sites 41-90) are lower priced, and senior discounts are available. Be aware that larger RVs and trailers may not be able to navigate the steep hills and sharp curves. Check with the campground host before attempting. Sites vary in length and width; be sure to verify that your rig will fit on the site chosen when making a reservation. The price shown is for a hillside site with senior discount. The park swimming pool is open seasonally, and a recreation room with billiard tables and pinball machines is located at the park conference center. There is no cable or over-the-air TV, and cell phone reception and WiFi are only available at the campground office and the conference center. The clean mountain air and beautiful natural surroundings more than compensate for the absence of those modern electronic annoyances. Be sure to visit the Miller homestead and be reminded of the self-sufficient lifestyle that existed a century ago. We will definitely return to Roan Mountain State Park. - tnyankee

We stumbled upon Woodsmoke Campground because our original choice was full. The reviews of Woodsmoke sounded good, so we decided to request a site via their website. Usually when we request a site online from a campground, we do not hear from them for days. Woodsmoke was a pleasant exception, as they replied within an hour of our request. I was able to call the following day to confirm our reservation. The lady I spoke with was extremely nice and accommodating.
Our initial reaction was that this campground was too close to home, as it is 30-35min. As soon as we drove into the beautiful private entrance, we realized that we were badly mistaken with our initial reaction. Just a half hour from home, we felt we were hours away.
The owner met us at the office and politely guided us to our spot and assisted in getting us perfectly positioned in our wonderful, private site. Our site backed up to a small stream, which added to the wonderful ambiance of our experience. The sites were large and well spaced. The bathhouse was extremely clean. It is obvious that the owner's take an exceptional amount of pride in maintaining this campground.
At the entrance to the campground is the trailhead to the Pinnacle Tower Trail. This is a 4.8mile hiking/biking trail. The views from the tower are beyond words! I mountain biked this trail two times during out stay and thoroughly enjoyed it. This is a must for anyone able to make the trek!
Within walking distance (or a very short drive) are a Dollar General store and a package store with all of your liquor, wine and beer needs. The package store had a great selection of craft and high gravity beers as well as the yellow fizzy stuff.
Woodsmoke is great whether you are coming from near or far. The owner's are exceptional, the facilities are phenomenal, and the location is convenient. We have ruled out return trips to other campgrounds after a wonderful weekend at Woodsmoke Campground! You must experience! - JandJ TN Travelers

This park is clean, well maintained and simple. We stayed for 2 nights. Did not use the bathhouse, but did see them on site. No on site laundry. No activities for children, but my kids enjoyed just being outside. Sites are gravel and well spaced. Roads are a bit tight, as stated previously. Our travel trailer is 36' and we found some of the turns to be tight, but doable. The real gem here is the staff. They were amazing. Very knowledgeable, helpful and hard workers constantly on the move bettering this park. The scenery is nice being this close to the national forest. The park is wooded and natural. If you're looking for a quiet, simple place surrounded by nature with full hookups- this would be for you. I would stay here again! - Brownsonthemove

There are very friendly and helpful staff in this family operated campground. It is a heavily wooded campground just off the interstate. The access road is a bit tight for larger rigs. The sites are pretty close together with few or no trees or bushes between many of them. We stayed for 6 nights while visiting family so we were gone almost all day. Since it was pre-season, the campground was practically empty except for us and a few long term rigs. - RichT

The camp ground is well established with trees but the buildings have not ben updated in years. Looks dated. Great for kids and has friendly campers who maintain their individual sites year round. - vols_24

We visited this campground in late April. The bathrooms were below par. We stayed for a week, and the staff did very little to maintain the bathrooms during the week. Showers were below average. Sites were mostly rock with very little shade, not very level. The staff people were nice though, and willing to help out when asked. - dschwark

Nice park... But not close to the interstate; it was a long drive to get there. - Bullardbill

We enjoyed our stay at Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park. The roads and sites were paved and level with partial shade. The sites are long and easily accommodated our 32' TT and truck. Most of the sites are pull-through, however I had to back in because of space limitations. The walking trails along the Nolichucky River are beautiful. There are excellent road cycling routes right from the campground. The host and other campers were very friendly. We will return to DCBSP! - JandJ TN Travelers

Campground gets very muddy and the lawn around the sites needs help. Campground hosts (and there seems to be too many for this place) park their vehicles on empty sites. Book your sites online or get what they want to give you. There are trailers there that look uninhabited and it downgrades the campground even further. Not all campground sites have sewer facilities. Most are pull through sites but the turn is pretty sharp. If you have a bigger rig you will cross the mud. Leaving the site is somewhat dangerous as there are large trees at the corner. Backing out could be a better option.
There is a pool a little ways away but does not open until summer.
Lots and lots of ticks....Use caution.
Walking areas outside the campground are nice. Went to Davy Crockets house and it seemed interesting until we spoke to a ranger. They are not sure if he actually lived there. Some years ago they found remnants of foundations in the area and thought one would be a nice place to build or move a structure calling it the Crocket family house. ?
At first it was a WOW factor. Then it was like who are they kidding. Made me laugh.
This campground is good for a night or two on your way to your final destination. Not a place to camp for more then that. The state should sell this area for development with a beautiful Walmart with sites that have sewer, water, and electric.
The Campground, with a little bit of money and effort could be a great destination. Right now to is not. - Edwardj

Camp hosts are outstanding as usual in TN. Asphalt level sites. Campground sits on the Nolichucky River. Showers/toilets clean. Sites are next to Crockett's cabin (replica). Good stop for a few days rest. The roads leading into the park are a bit narrow/winding and a real nail biter when approaching another oncoming rig. - rvrrat520

Park is located on a rather steep area sloping down to a river. As such, the site rows are terraced and the row we were on had a substantial upward pitch from front to back. The sewer hook-up was in back and the upward pitch made draining of holding tanks difficult. There was only one water hook-up for every two sites so we had to share with a neighbor. This required 50' of hose. The park has individual bathrooms in the bathhouse which is nice. However, liquid soap and paper towels had run out in several of the bathrooms and was not replenished during the three days we were there. Water was frequently standing on the floors. This along with the dusty gravel driveways made the floors dirty. The Wi-Fi was often difficult to access even when close to the office. The pool appeared to be clean and was nicely furnished with tables and chairs. - Whisky Mike

Easy Big Rig access off I-81 but 8 miles on good highway. Roads & sites gravel and mostly level. Cable TV works well and Wifi just okay. Utilities work as should. Clean park with friendly staff. Park terraced on hill but easy driving through park. Stayed in pull through site with easy access and fit 62' rig & toad with ease. Would stay here again. - osok

Easy access into the paved entry road off of Hwy 11E. Hosts most helpful & informative. The S Hoston Lake is at record low levels due to lower dam difficulties & hosts stated repairs will take several years thus no motorized boat activity. Campground includes level graveled pull-thrus & back end sites in multi levels overlooking the river. - L&R0924J

This shady park provides tenting sites, mostly shorter sites, and a few longer sites, with most back-in type, though we pulled in to ours since it gave us the best view, best shade, and easy in and out.
Sites are assigned, and reservable, though we showed up without reservation, and were even allowed to choose our own site before registering, nice.
There are also two different dump stations, one at the entrance, and another at the far back of the park, with plenty of space.
I noticed some 'one way' signs, but saw many vehicles and rvs going the opposite way - the signage is confusing. - hturnerfamily

We stayed at Warriors' Path on Memorial Day weekend with several friends. We all got sites in the loop on the west end of the campground (81,83,85,87, & 89), which was perfect for us. Not a lot of shade in the middle of the loop, but lots of trees on the outer edges. Bathrooms in the loop consisted of 4 private, ADA accessible, shower/bathroom units. They were brand new, clean, and spacious. We struggled getting our 5th wheel into our spot because of the angle and drop off on the other side of the road; however, it fit our beast in nicely once we got it in there. There are tons of amenities in the campground, to include a lake with boat/paddleboat rentals, a world-class playground, and lots of camping trails. A bit disappointing that there was not a swim area or beach. A short walk from our camping loop there was an out-of-commission boat ramp, so we at least put our feet in. Some people (not in our group) swam from this ramp, but I highly discourage it - there were boats going by in the lake and nothing to identify the swimmers. - Mary A

Pretty park, something for everyone. Quiet and pretty foliage.
Appearance of the park was fine. Sites were spacious. Facilities were easy to connect and located in a convenient spot. Roads were easy to navigate if you come in on the main road. GPS took us through neighborhoods that were very hilly and narrow roads. - Thelma Jayne
