Small, cramped Park which may be a challenge for larger rigs, except for the three huge handicapped sites. The park is set in the side of a steep hill, so none of the sites are very level, except the handicapped ones, but they have done a pretty good job of getting as level as they can. The sites are small and very close together. Some sites are listed on the reservation form as having water, but it is just a common faucet at the bathroom. Despite these disadvantages, the entire Park is very pretty, with lots of trees. The nicest feature of the park is a swimming area with a small Sandy beach and a huge common picnic area with lots of shade and tables. I visited during labor day weekend, and it was quite roudy. Quiet hours were neither respected nor enforced, and there was loud partying past midnight. No wifi, but att and Verizon worked ok. We camped at Melton Hill Dam Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very nice, well-kept TVA campground overlooking Melton Hill lake. It overlooks a swimming area on the lake about 100 yards away, which has a nice but small sand beach. The rest of the facility is woods and wide-open fields/lawns, paved walkways along the lake shore, and several very attractive picnic pavilions. The Clinch river is within walking distance of the campground, maybe 1/4 mile away. It was quiet and peaceful. I expected some rowdies, but the crowd was generally much quieter than most places I've stayed. Everybody was very friendly. This is a popular fishing destination. Huge rock bass are regularly caught in the Clinch river just below the dam, and there are lots of other sport fish such as bass and bluegill. Birds are plentiful, including geese, great blue herons, and many, many swallows, for which TVA maintains nesting houses all along the riverbank. I'd have given a score of 10 but most sites are not that good. The campground is very hilly, and many of the sites are lined up sardine-style, and others are perched on a hillside in such a way that you have to walk up or down a full flight of steps to the picnic area. But there are a few very nice sites with good views, an open feel, and a level gravel pad with comfortable, usable space. I have a very small (16') trailer, so maneuvering was no problem, but a big motorhome or 5th wheel would probably have a lot of trouble getting through this campground. I had a very relaxing 4-night stay here, and I'll definitely go back unless I expect a large weekend crowd to compete with for the few good campsites. We camped at Melton Hill Dam Campground in a Travel Trailer.
