The sites are ridiculously small and cramped, very close together. A few random picnic tables dot the campground, but not at every site. The lake is full of litter. The lakeside sites are soggy and mosquito-ridden, and half of each site is unusable as you have to allow other guests to drive through your site to reach theirs. The "play area" is a bunch of logs. The pool is tiny. The "toilet" is a port-a-potty. No power or water at tent sites. Constant noise of traffic, day and night. - Eclipse chaser

I didn't heed the reviews and took a chance. BAD decision!!! We were crammed into a spot between two trees with about a foot between each. This was a dirt spot, no gravel, no concrete or pavement of any kind. On top of that, it was on a very steep incline. So steep that I had to put the truck in 4X4 to get into it. Had it been raining or wet, we would not have made it. Did I mention crammed in?! Oh my...I have never seen such tight spaces. We could hear everything the couple next to us were saying, smell the food they were cooking inside!
I've said all you need to know to NOT go here. If you decide to take the chance, you only have yourself to blame...I tried to warn you. - TheTideRide

The park appears to be more of a full-timer homestead, than the traveling RV'rs.
The staff was accommodating, I requested a river spot and they changed our site, not a problem.
Beautiful river spot with nice patio. - Dksnapshots

My rate reflects weekly rate. This campground is aged and at least half its sites seem to be permanent campers. Some units have an aluminum carport built over, some just have tarps, lots of stuff around them....I even saw a refrigerator outside one. My site was sloped and narrow. Could not use the picnic table because it sloped so bad....it was also old and moldy. Ladies restroom by the pool was aged but clean. Only 2 shower stalls and very tight. Couldn't get the cable to work but got a lot of channels using my antenna. Office people were very friendly, the park had a free BBQ of pulled pork, cold salads and beans. Guests were requested to bring a dessert. Very nice. - RVingMe

The good: Close to I-75. Staff very friendly. Good cable. Wi-Fi signal was strong but I used my jet pack. Cement pads and nicely wooded. Many pull thru sites and all had fire ring and picnic table. All hook ups are close. The Not so good: They don't guide you to your site. Turns are tight. Many trees so could not use awning. I had a 44 foot site but had to park rig down hill to keep toad hooked up so was way off level. 30 amp breaker would not work so used the 50 w/adapter. Park voltage was 113 with the a/c on so used my autoformer. Assigned site 83 but somebody was on it. Moved to site 81. Staff was spray painting so could not use a bigger site that was more $. Many 15-20 year old permanent rigs with lots of junk but the people seemed friendly. Our fire ring had broken down wood furniture in it. This park was ok for an overnight but I did not care for the issues we had. Took us about 30 minutes just to get a site and drove around the park 3 times. We will not be back. - wduff

Staff was nice enough. Pool was clean. Campsites were not identified so it was tricky finding where we were supposed to be. There were no garbage receptacles at the sites. It appears there are very many permanent residents there and most of their places are terribly junked up. The view from our campsite was ridiculous (I posted a picture). There was one bathroom/shower in the area we camped. It doesn't have proper ventilation so everything in there stayed steamy wet from hot showers. There were two showers by the pool and one didn't have any hot water but they were clean. It was okay for our stay (because we were only there to sleep) but I don't think I would want to bring a family here. - Cindy P4

Our review of this park was a difficult one to write because the manager was extremely friendly. Her family owns the place but honestly this is only a hobby park. It was not well marked on the east ( exit 117 off of I-75N and turn right ) side of Raccoon Valley Road. Their park sign is almost non existent. Once in the park the gravel sites were only moderately level ( we needed boards to level). From our count there appeared to be only three 50 amp sites: the others were 30’s. They have one washer, one dryer and two complete restrooms, one of which is handicapped accessible, and one shade tree site but it’s not level. No Wi-Fi but our Verizon air card worked well. No trash cans so we put our full bags in the laundry area. We found, per the managers recommendation, a really good restaurant called Aubrey’s at Exit 112 on Conner Road. On the plus side, this campground was quite unlike the noisy campground on the other side of Exit 117 ( quarry trucks ). This is good as a stopover park but not much more unless some corrections are made such as Wi-Fi, re-level the sites, more 50 amp hookups and trashcans. Having said that, in our estimation it’s almost on a par with the very few surrounding campgrounds and this is in large part due to the very accommodating hostess. Our return to this park would depend on seeing what, if any, of the above suggested improvements get made. - 5thwheeler

Small, quiet park with friendly owner and campers. Was able to set around a camp fire at night and relax. - User1850

A new RV park great for stop-overs or long term stays, just north of Knoxville. Just close enough to everything, but still has that country surroundings. The owners were friendly, the place was clean and neat. A great place for Vol's fans to park. - acresofitems

Overall good park. Office helpful. Clean and well maintained. Only complaint with Site 1 was not level at all. One of the worst sites we've had for not being level. To get or motorhome level, one rear tire was jacked into the air. This is an Escapes Park. No other discounts are available. Not much nearby. Close to I75 and good for overnight stays. No Cable or WiFi. Verizon cell service good. Verizon Data: download speed 11.03 Mbps and 2.68 Mbps upload speeds. We would stay here again. - Rufas

The park is clean and well maintained. Our gravel pull thru site was long enough to stay hooked up with our 42' 5th wheel. Park is located conveniently off the Interstate and close to shopping and restaurants. Great free cable, wi-fi, picnic table and fire ring. Nice size dog park, pool, and play area for kids. The staff here are amazing. We ended up here due to maintenance issues with our truck. The staff helped us with the many obstacles that came up during our stay. We would definitely stay here again! - travelswithpuppies

Stopped for overnight. Small campground, but well kept. Check in fast and efficient. Escort to site. Roads gravel, easy to navigate with big rig. Sites level, packed gravel a bit narrow, long enough not to unhook. Park wifi usable with full park. Park cable. Many satellite friendly sites ours was (29). Good Verizon and T-Mobile signal. Grass between sites, garbage can at each site. Gas station at entrance to park good for gassers and diesel. Park has a pool and K-9 park, laundry, small camp store. FHU's mid site and well maintained. Park staff friendly and helpful. Would stay here again. - wtravlr1

This was an overnight stop for us. The pull through site was a narrow but long enough to stay hooked up. Trash can on each site was a nice touch. We didn't use any of the amenities, but this appears to be a good campground as a base camp if you are in the Knoxville area to visit. We would stay again. - Jtroop

A bit too close. I stay at state parks to avoid the parking lot effect and am disappointed. Neighbors encroached on our site to make things more uncomfortable. - Castorbean

Great park for children. Basketball court, playground, swimming area, and hiking trails entertain the kids. Very quiet. - pwebbsr

This is a state park, it only has 50 sites and some are small. It would be tight on a large rig would have some trouble getting around the area. For smaller units this place is excellent. You can get lake side sites and even put your boat right next to your site on Norris Lake. Bathrooms were clean and the staff and rangers are very friendly. Plenty for the kids to do here, almost all sites are shady and plenty of room around the sites. Picnic tables at every site along with a garbage can for every site. Very quiet campground with mostly level spots. - Rheatherly

Very well managed, clean campground. Not a "resort". On the cleanest lake in TN. Staff very helpful. Boat ramp nearby as are walking trails. Have what appears to be a well stocked store, but I was there in off season so they were scaling back some on supplies.
Some of the most friendly people I have ever met. Follow their directions to campground. Can be tricky. Boats are welcome and it looks like there is plenty of shore to tie up there. They have a beach area also. - wvbassmistress

The owners weren't there, but left a note on the office door that they were gone for the weekend. We left a check in the night slot. Large open field with numerous sites. We chose a pull through, all grass. Good water pressure & 50A service. We let our two Vizsla dogs run free in the large open area. Quiet. E-Z on/off Interstate. Peaceful. Great overnite stop. No wi fix or cable, but plenty of open sky for your satellite dish. - amxpress

Laid back and low stress camping! Campground and facilities were very nice and clean and there is plenty of room to let kids or dogs run around. Great for an overnight stay or a longer visit to the Smokies. - JSW

This park needs some TLC. We stayed in the west area in site #6. The approach to the camping was not too bad as we disconnected our Jeep at the office. The site was not level so we used boards under the front wheels as the leveling jacks could not compensate for the pitch. We couldn't get all the way back into the site as they had timbers that would interfere with our stairs when they opened. The bathrooms had tons of spiders everywhere! You had to be careful bending down in the shower or else you were in a web....I used the handicapped stall as it was the only shower that the temperature could be adjusted. Also used the hand held wand to spray the bugs away before getting in, had to put the sprayer on the rail as the holder didn't work. The screen windows had hundreds of dead bugs stuck to the outside. The walk to the showers went by sites with broken benches, trash and cigarettes in the firepits, and picnic tables that you would need to scrape the dirt and debris from underneath before using. The volleyball court had broken concrete pieces in the playing field...ouch. Simple neglect. ...I don't mind old outdated showers but clean is important! On the good side our site was spacious with beautiful trees! Loved hammocking. Not very many people in the campground which was lovely. - Blowfishqueen

This park is heavily shaded in most areas. Nice in hot weather but there is little grass as a consequence. Most sites are on the small side. There are a few that will take a 35 to 40 foot unit.
Water and electric hook ups were in good working order. Many sites have paved pads. Sites have large concrete picnic tables on concrete pads. There is a playground for the kids.
There is an extensive hiking trail system from the campground.
Negatives: no near by dumpster and dump station is down the road not within the campground itself.
This campground is called the "west" campground. The "east" campground is located near the marina and dam. It is more open and grasses. The sites look quite narrow but will accommodate large RVs. The road going into that campground is very narrow. Caution must be used not to run off pavement.
The road into the west campground is very good however there are a couple of switchbacks that are manageable. - petendoll

Back-in site 49 is level concrete, long enough for 35 foot 5th wheel & truck parking. Small grass patch to rear with two small shade trees. Beyond grass is a rail fence, quiet road, & field. Site is wide enough for three slides; however, two small landscape trees overhang site entrance way making it difficult to back in without scraping rig. Rather high curb at site entrance. Very narrow sites are separated from each other by a row of low landscape shrubs. Lane is paved. Shower & laundry houses very clean. Nice social room, small playground, porch rockers overlook river. Pool was closed for season. Staff very friendly. - Scottsdale RVers

We had a site on the river which we thought was worth the extra dollars. The rate is $65 but we got GS discount plus one night free for staying a week. The shrubs between the sites provide some privacy. Large concrete sites with grass at the end of each one. No place for a dog to run around but a nice place to walk on leash. Laundry and restrooms immaculate. Actually, everything is immaculate. No campfires. Personnel very friendly and helpful. Great wifi worked all the time. Good Verizon signal. It is a bit of a drive to get to the Smokey Mountains and Gatlinburg, but it's so congested in those areas I'm not sure we want to stay there anyway. It was great to sit and watch the river, the deer across it and the bald eagle fishing almost every day. What a treat. We would stay again if in the area. - thekites

Nicest place we have ever stayed. These people are very welcoming and accommodating. They will help you with anything you need. The sites are beautiful and well manicured. The resort is located along a beautiful river. There are plenty of places to take your pet on a nice walk. This is not a campground!! If you want that, stay in somewhere else. This is a nice quiet resort. Bathrooms, spotless, laundry room spotless. We will see you next year. - Clarabels
