Came in at dusk to overnight and that seems to be a common use for this park as it is on the I-80/I-40 corridor down to the Smokey's/Pigeon Forge. The camp ground seemed crowded and lots of rigs pulling out in the morning. Restrooms/showers are aged and I had cold water. Our site was adjacent to river, but did not have a clear view of river. We did have a racoon lurking around site as we grilled a hamburger, so keep your trash secured. We camped at Warrior's Path State Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Warrior's Path State Park in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
Don't follow GPS, it could take you through neighborhoods. Follow website directions.

PLEASE NOTE: I stayed in the overflow area of the park, not the main campground. This is a review only of the overflow area, and I presume the problems I had did not exist in the main campground. With that being said, the campground was pretty, the the sites not convenient for RVs. My picnic table was on the wrong side of my RV. Otherwise, it was OK, but a little expensive for boondocking. My big problem was that I did not feel particularly safe, in that there were two individuals camped in the park with no vehicles, who appeared homeless. One was acting very strange. I did see a park ranger go by several times, but they did not stop, they just drove through. The overflow area is not inside the park itself, it is down the road a little ways outside of the park boundaries. We camped at Warrior's Path State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We have a 40 ft. rig and I had seen other reviews that warned not to take more than a 30 foot rig in there, but NO, we didn't believe them. But it's true. We needed a place to stay and I called the park ranger and she said "yes, there's a space you can fit into" and she reserved it for us by cellphone. The park is just an older park and is not designed for big rigs in any way. The one site she reserved, actually did work out and we enjoyed it, but we drove around and didn't think we could have gotten very much else. I'm grateful to the enthusiastic staff at Warrior's Path who were first class, although I'm sure they realize it's a little small. One of the biggest problems, was making the turn when getting off the freeway, and having to go down Colonial Heights Road. There is no way for a big rig with a tow to make that corner, unless the road is cleared, and you get way over to make the turn. We did it, but with help from a number of people directing us. the road from there to the park is also a very, very small country lane. One more item: we love trains, and did hear them all night long blowing the whistle for the one crossing there. If we had a smaller rig, we would go back, but feel it's too tough with what we have. We camped at Warrior's Path State Park in a Motorhome.

Our first time camping here, at this particular campground. Beautiful Tennessee State Park! Campground maintained well. Lovely Holston River wraps around the camping area. Plenty of wildlife around. Multiple hiking trails that follow the shoreline & offer lovely views of the park! Our site was a generous one! Many different sites to choose from. (Small/Large~Flat/Hills~Shaded/Full Sun.) We picked ours online. I made the reservation in February, not knowing what to expect until we drove into the camping area last week. Pleasantly surprised that I chose well based on google maps! The giant, beautiful looking pool was unfortunately closed for the season!! ( I guess they have a different pool season in the south??? We arrived on August 19th & it was closed- Our pools here at home stay open until Labor Day) The shower areas are very ill-equipped for having a private area to towel off & dress. One small diagonal bench in the corner & hooks on the wall outside of the 3 shower stalls that have "small" shower curtains that do not close fully. And that area is separated by another shower curtain that opens to the outside door/sink area. I have seen worse, but they could surely make some updates & make a big difference for many visitors. Overall we had a wonderful vacation. I would have left a "10" rating if not for the pool being closed & the shower area shortfalls. We would most likely camp here again!! We Love Tennessee!

Plenty of attractions in and around Kingsport, TN! We highly recommend The Crazy Tomato!!! Wish we had one near home. The food is fantastic!!!
More of a tent campground, but a few larger sites. We had to switch to a larger site, and employees were very helpful. The state website does not specify tent sites, this would be helpful. Our biggest issue was the bathhouse. We used the showers and bathroom areas. Not very clean at all, in fact near the end of our trip we chose to use our small popup shower rather than those provided. The park itself is wonderful with lots of hiking and walking opportunities. The boys loved the playground. However, as stated earlier, the bathhouse was very bad.

Excellent internal paved roads. Good water pressure. Restroom was clean. Abundant shade throughout. Each site has a table and grill. You may see other reviews lamenting the size of the spaces. These are correct. The spaces are a tad small but adequately spaced. Plenty of activities for all ages including large lake, very nice playground area, golf, hiking, and pool. Better suited for tents but OK for rigs < 30'. Zero highway noise or ambient city light. Ignore your GPS directions and follow the signs. Easy reach of I-81. We camped at Warrior's Path State Park in a Tent.
It is a state park, without the amenities that resort parks would have, but decent sites. It was quite full when we were there, and a very rainy day. The cement and gravel sites kept it from being a sea of mud. Sites are not long, but wide enough, and seem well maintained. We would stay there again if in the area. We camped at Warrior's Path State Park in a Motorhome.
Stayed here while visiting relatives. First, let me say this is an awesome park. Lots of outdoor activities, lots of shade and home to probably the best kids playground in the USA. That being said, the older campsites are not adequate for large motorhomes. Our reservation spot was too short and narrow for my rig, so we had to swap sites to get one we would fit into. Staff helped accommodate our swapping of spots, however, be advised that individual spots are reserved and campsites are no first come first serve. Do your research to ensure your rig will fit on the campsite. Full hook ups are not available, do not mistake water valve pipes for 4" sewer connections. This park does not have full hook ups. You could get into this campground with a larger rig, we did see a bus sized rig in one spot, however, be very cautious and ask park attendant for assistance selecting spot. Be very cautious. If you get your big rig into a spot, you will for sure enjoy the effort to do so. We did visit the park in the winter as well and various sections will be closed during those months. Call. Marina has a snack bar, boat rentals, etc. We did not use those facilities other than to buy some drinks. Kingsport restaurants are close, as well as multiple grocery stores. We camped at Warrior's Path State Park in a Motorhome.
This is an older state park close to Kingsport, TN. The sites are mostly suited to smaller rigs. The few sites that can accommodate larger units can be challenging to get in and out of. Water and electric hookups only, although there is water shutoff valve encased in a standard-looking sewer pipe. Perhaps more experienced RVers are familiar with this, but I wasn't! They could do better by marking these clearly. The campground has a nice city park atmosphere with a really nice pool. Campers get a discount on the swimming. Overall not a bad place for the price.

Wonderfully maintained State Park. Good 30/50 power and water, no sewer, but good dump station. Great mix of sites, only a few good for 30+ foot rigs or trailers. Lots of forest, close to river/lake. Rental boats, disk golf. Very nice. Will go back. We camped at Warrior's Path State Park in a Travel Trailer.
This campground is sort of a jumble of sites. We did just fine and got a nice site in our 27 ft motorhome, but I certainly would not want to negotiate it in a big rig. Many of the sites are very short and not level, so you have to pick your site carefully. As noted by others, there is good 50 amp service and water at the sites. (Not for sure if they all have 50 amp but we did.) There are two dump stations. The folks at check in were nice and helpful. The park is very convenient from the interstate. There was very little freeway noise and, for the most part, the park was nice and quiet. We would stay again but only for a day or two in passing through.

Though this campground is "big-rig accessible", the number or sites that can accommodate big rigs is very small (maybe six?). We camped here in a 38' MH, and watched many larger rigs circle the park and head back out, though it was mid-week. Sites are mostly suitable for tents, and for rigs around 30' or less; perhaps half a dozen can accommodate larger rigs. The campground is a small part of this large state park, which has lots of family-type activities, including a swimming pool, soccer fields, stables, and a golf course. It's quite pretty. We camped at Warrior's Path State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice park with some larger sites for big rigs. The sites have water and 30/50 amp hookups. We were there in the winter and noted that they closed most of the campground due to the colder weather. Lots of trails to hike and the lake is great for water sports and fishing. We camped at Warrior's Path State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
