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

Hilly and a bit tight for a 43 footer but was able to get in and out of our site with no problem. Had to wiggle a bit to get level because our jacks are inoperative. Felt secure and had a great view of the lake. Would stay again when in the area. - rdb1

We have traveled the whole United States with the exception of Utah and North Dakota with our 5th wheel camper. I would have to rate this park as the absolute WORST experience we have ever had. The sites were cramped and unlevel. The built in decks were rotten and dilapidated. The whole park just had a dirty feeling about it with lots of permanent residents in rundown trailers. There is nothing wrong with something being old but it doesn't have to be rotting down. A Walmart parking lot would have felt like a Hilton Inn compared to this dump. - dlouroberts0419

We had pre booked a 30 amp site but due to high temperature we were able to get a 50 amp pull thru site on check in. Very helpful friendly girl on check in. Campsite rustic and many permeant sites, our site concrete and level, those at the back of campsite looked less level. Swimming pool, cable TV and Wifi very good. Showers and bathrooms rustic but very clean. Easy access from interstate but no highway noise. - Harris England

The folks at the office were nice, but they had lost our reservation, lucky for us they were not full. The park is old and needs TLC. The roads are tight and hard to drive on. Our site was not level and were not able to get completely level. The sites are tiny, we could not extend our awning here. There are many permanent residents with junky rigs here. We found trash, broken glass and other debris around the park. We would not return. - rwalsh

Tight sites for big rig. Leaving the park is difficult if you are towing. Got jackknifed and had to unhook car. Be aware of sharp turns and uneven sites. Staff friendly and restrooms clean but old. - Retired1022

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

The staff in the office at check-in were friendly and helpful, and as always, we appreciated the offered Escapees hugs. Our near level pull-thru site was easily long enough for our coach and toad, and we had a nice shade tree on the driver's side that helped a bit in the 90 degree heat while we were there. The sites are closer together than we prefer, but there was no problem with having both our super slide and awning open along with the provided picnic table. The utilities were a little oddly placed on our site, but still easily reached. The park is quiet at night and there's a small but well kept up laundry area at the main office with a few washers and dryers. Activities are available every day, with a daily social hour for those that want to mingle and meet their neighbors. All in all, we did enjoy our one week stay at Raccoon Valley, and plan to return whenever we're in the area. - NYDutch

This was an affordable, easy overnight stop off of I75. Office staff was pleasant, site was a nice pull thru. We didn't need to unhook our fifth wheel. Exactly what we were looking for! - fun2travel

Older park, clean, well kept and exceptional staff. Spaces are very close together. We parked our tow crosswise behind our rig to keep it out of the roadway. Very nice outdoor patio area for public use. One mile off I-75, but fairly quiet except for high traffic times during morning and evening. That is, unless you get noisy neighbors or something unusual and unexpected happens during the night. Some shade. Nice pet area under old shade trees. Wooded area and hiking trails adjacent to the park. Easy access to groceries, etc. We bought tires and had them mounted on the rig at a local truck service across from the Pilot truck stop just two miles from the park. - Ginger C Brown

We stopped here on an overnight to Alabama. The park is clean and has some shaded sites. Very friendly staff. The check in process was quick and easy. We enjoyed the cable tv. Will definitely stay here for another stopover or maybe a 2 or 3 day stay. - Cobb_74

Greeted warmly, escorted to site. Great laundry room with large capacity washers and dryers. Level gravel sites, some shade. Could not use fire ring as room side was too close. - Sunchaser v

This campground is packed with sites right next to each other. Some sites have a fire pit & if your neighbor has a fire, you'll have a fire. They have a nice store, laundry area, pool and the bathrooms were older but clean. We had a pull through for our travel trailer/truck & did not have to unhook for our overnight stay. Cable was a bit fuzzy, but watchable. Wifi was intermittent. Covered trash can at each site. Staff was super helpful and friendly. OK for overnight, although high-priced. They were full early so make a reservation. - R&S

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

We stayed one night here while traveling through. It's very close to I-40. The hosts live on site and when we arrived and called, a man on a ATV guided us to our site. As others have mentioned, it's basically a big pasture with hookups every few yards, but we had plenty of space as there were many unoccupied sites (the bluegrass festival was the next week). Connections to 50 amp electricity, water and sewer were all good. The hosts were friendly. Not a lot of amenities, no picnic tables, grills or anything, but everything you need really for a night's stay. The area was very pretty, rural farms. You could hear the interstate, but it was not too loud. Cost was $33 for 50 amp, $27.50 for 30-amp. - Maggie420

Good overnight stop just off I-40. Owner is very nice. There is almost no shade so if you use a satellite dish it should be no problem. All sites are grass and require some leveling. Had a problem with the circuit breaker tripping but the owner was quick to replace it. 50 amp sites are limited. Most sites are 30 amp only. The campground is set up mainly for their annual bluegrass festival which is held the middle of September. - MarkandMarty

Stayed here overnight as we were traveling through. Would definitely stay here again! The owners are super friendly and helpful, the sites were just right for what we needed and the campground was in a beautiful area. Was easy to get to right off the highway and fuel and food was right down the road. Bass Pro is right there too! - Loving God's Country!

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

We originally booked a site in the East campground. Upon arrival, the east side was not suited for us. The sites are extremely close with no type of screening in between sites, only provides 30 amp electric and is situated right underneath high tension powerlines. The East campground just wasn't for us. After calling the front desk, they happened to have a site available on the West side campground and happily assisted us in changing our reservation. The West campground, hands down, is the nicer side. The sites are a little closer than we normally prefer, but much more spacious than the East side. Also, the park wasn't very full which allowed us to have open sites next to ours. Wonderful, shaded sites with natural screening between sites. It was lovely. No complaints with the hook ups, all worked wonderfully. The playground is a great asset for families. We also enjoyed just walking the loop and enjoying the scenery. A nature trail head is found just off of the loop and was a fun excursion for our family. The bath houses were clean, but a little outdated. Paint peeling from the ceiling and tons of spider webs, but it is a $20/night natural state park and seemed to be decently maintained. If you like wooded, natural camping with a few modern amenities like we do then this campground is for you. We had a wonderful time and will definitely be back if we are ever in the area! - Brownsonthemove

This was a very clean, friendly, well maintained park. It has everything you may need, or want. The staff was very helpful. For a small park, it was well worth the stop. - Larry Burkett

This is a very nice park. It's it's right on the river bank very close to Highway I-40. We did not use the bathrooms or showers but I am sure if they look as good as the part they're fabulous. We will stay here again the next time we pass through. Management was very nice. - P Texas

This park tho small, is one of the nicest, prettiest, best kept, friendly (including the staff) campgrounds ever. There is a pool & playground, mtg room in the office & a gazebo on the river for anyone to use. The staff tho older (70s), are pleasant with a good sense of humor & knowledge of the area. The rules, no one w/o a drivers license to drive golf carts, no hanging laundry outside, pool closes at 8, no bikes or skateboards where people typically walk. Contrary to an earlier review I appreciated being able to walk in the pool area w/o having to dodge bicycles or doge golf carts driven by someone not licensed, not looking at someones laundry or trash (you take it to the dumpster). Good to know the staff was on top of things. The street is paved & the sites concrete with picnic tables, grass in front or in back of site, beautiful crepe myrtle trees, and hedge between each site make this an outstanding park! If you don't like the rules, or don't think they were made for you, then don't stay here. This is a GREAT park! - MamaD
