Rate reflects senior discount. We stayed at the RV campground, called the Pin Oak Campground. There is another campground here for smaller trailers and tents called Cub Creek. They also have an equestrian area. Pin Oak is a beautiful campground set within a very large state forest. This is a well thought out campground/RV Park. They can handle any size RV; there are both pull-through and back-in sites. All sites are gravel but mostly level. They are spacious with picnic tables and have a fire pit and lantern hook. Terrain is hilly. There are several very nice view sites near the water. There is a firing range and an archery range, several trails, and they allow off road vehicles on some of the fire trails. There are boat docks at the campground to tie up a boat. Small swim beach, not a lot of overflow parking. Pin Oak has full hook up sites, electric worked steady at 124 per leg. Water pressure was 60 PSI, we used a regulator. Campground kept clean by a hard working camp host. He was pleasant and knowledgeable about the park and surrounding area. They sell firewood for $5 a bundle and the camp host will deliver it to your site. Campground can be a little hard to receive signal for voice and data; our Verizon worked better with a booster. Bathrooms were clean; didn't use showers. Laundry was clean and reasonably priced at $1.00/$1.00. Only 1 washer and 1 dryer in each bathhouse but they were clean and worked. There are 2 bathhouses to service the RV campground. They do have a restaurant in the park at the lodge, hours vary by season. Nice gift shop there as well. Park was very quiet and rules were enforced. We look forward to visiting here again. We camped at Natchez Trace State Park / Pin Oak Lake in a Motorhome.

We could find NOTHING wrong with this RV campground: sites on the lake, handicap accessible, level sites, FHU, great staff and excellent price! What more could you ask for? Well maintained roads within the park, easily handles big rigs, quiet and beautiful vistas. We arrived on a Sunday night with plan to stay just overnight but were so pleased we stayed an extra night w/o needing a reservation...just call the campground and leave a voice msg. Probably couldn't do that in season, but the Fall was a great time to visit. Ranger even helped undo tow vehicle! Firewood must be purchased on site but every site has both grill and campfire ring. Laundry and handicap showers were awesome for wheelchair bound guest. We camped at Natchez Trace State Park / Pin Oak Lake in a Motorhome.

Overall a very nice campground with spacious campsites and nice views of the lake. The bath house is the cleanest and most well kept that I have seen anywhere, but this is the start of camping season so that can change when the campground stays full all the time. There are very few trees for shade. All sites are gravel with fire rings and grills along with a picnic table. Some picnic tables could use a little bit of repair work with the benches that were heavily bowed. AT&T cell phone coverage was not great, but it was usable. 3G was also spotty. The antenna picked up ABC, CBS, and PBS, but that was all. The campground host and the park rangers were very visible and constantly making rounds throughout the area. We will definitely be going back! We camped at Natchez Trace State Park / Pin Oak Lake in a Travel Trailer.

This is our first visit to Pin Oak Lake & it was very nice. We stayed in the middle loop & could see a little of the lake from our site. The sites are very roomy & level with a gravel surface. Site 23 gets full sun until about 1:00. We could not use our dish due to the tall trees behind us, but people in the middle & opposite side were able to use theirs. The bath house was very clean & well-maintained. The shower stalls & dressing rooms are roomy. There is a long shelf & 3 double hooks for items in the dressing rooms. There was plenty of hot water. The campground host was very helpful. There is a nice pier on the lake on the middle loop. We were very pleased with this campground & would stay here again.

The pull-thru sites are extremely long. We could have put another 40' MH and toad on the space along with our own. The sites are also very wide. The park was relative quiet even though it was Labor Day weekend. The reservation staff was extremely friendly AND helpful when we needed to extend our stay. One word of advice, however, is ask for directions to your campground. We found the roads and signage to get to the campground confusing. Certainly would stay here again.

Beautiful state park. There was hardly anyone here during our stay. Very peaceful and quiet. Camp host was very helpful, as there was nobody staffing the station at the entrance to the campground. Very poor Verizon cell signal was really the only negative about this park. We camped at Natchez Trace State Park / Pin Oak Lake in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful campground with a few sites that are right on the lake (29 and 31 are great sites). The campground is quite a drive off the interstate, but the roads to it are good. Roads inside the campground are also good. Very quite and peaceful campground. We would definitely stay again. We camped at Natchez Trace State Park / Pin Oak Lake in a Motorhome.

We have reviewed this park before, but there have been changes this year that warrant another review. First, Tennessee State Parks have gone to a reservation system, so it is no longer a first come basis as it used to be. That is a good thing in my opinion, but it is something that campers need to be aware of before arrival. The down side to that is that, while the rate remains $25 per night, they have added a $3 reservation fee and $3.69 tax, making the actual cost to stay $31.69 per night. The price is getting up there with private campgrounds that provide cable TV and Wi-Fi. This park has neither. While it is still a nice park with a lot to do, they are getting more strict with the rules. The camp host came around twice during our most recent stay to remind us of the rules. Once to tell me that my boat trailer has to be properly parked (no problem) and the other to tell us to be gone by 12 noon or we would be charged an extra 15 bucks. We've never been run off on Sunday as there is seldom anyone coming in to take the site until the next Thursday or Friday. I saw no reason for that, but the rules are the rules. One other thing, in my earlier review of this park, I commented on the good seafood buffet on Friday night. I don't know what has changed, but the quality of the food is not as good as it used to be. It is okay, but not great, and the price on it has gone up as well. For these reasons, I've lowered my overall rating of this park from a 9 to a 7. It is still a good place to camp, but just not as good as it once was. We camped at Natchez Trace State Park / Pin Oak Lake in a Fifth Wheel.

We were looking for a quick overnight while traveling I-40, this wasn't it. The park is 10 miles south of I-40 and probably takes nearly 20 minutes to get there from I-40 due to the continuous "S" curves that make up Tenn hwy 114. The drive in is through some beautiful heavy forests but the campsite itself was a disappointment in that it was totally cleared of trees - strange. If you like sun or want absolutely no obstruction for your satellite antenna this is your place. The roads are asphalt and in good condition. The pads were gravel, many were quite long and for the most part level. The park was clean and well maintained. We did not use the restrooms but by outward appearance they seemed in good condition. There was a playground for the kids and a roped off swimming area nearby. We rated this park down to a 7 primarily because of no trees left around the camp sites - it is nothing special.

Three loops to choose from. The sites are long and mostly level. Gravel sites and paved roads. The 50 amp service was good. Marginal Verizon Internet service, but worked sometimes. Very clean and sturdy bathrooms. A bit far from civilization. Would stay there again. We camped at Natchez Trace State Park / Pin Oak Lake in a Motorhome.

If you come from I-40, you will have 10 miles of very curving road. The asphalt is in good shape but it is a ride, always turning, going up or down. For having 14,000 acres or so of forest, most of it is elsewhere. Camping area is cleared out areas with few trees. You will probably get shade early or late in the day. The Lodge is very nice with restaurant if you want such for a change and Lexington, TN is only a couple miles away. It is largely populated with locals escaping from the Memphis area. Went on the trails, but they weren't much. Many visitors were very impressed by the place, but I had hoped for something more. We were there for 5 nights.

This is a lovely, quiet park on a lake. Staff was helpful and friendly. The bathroom was basic at best and didn't seem to have been used much. I would rate them about a "5,"so didn't feel I could say they were not clean per se. We were here after Labor Day, so it was too cool to swim, though there was a small area near the playground, which was also very nice. We would camp here again.

This is a really nice, well laid out park. Some pull-through sites and lots of long back in sites. FHU in our site was $25/night which is not bad for this part of the country. Water, sewer, Power (50amp). $20 if you are a Tennessee senior. There are 4 nice lakes in the park to play in. Cell service is spotty and our Sprint MiFi was adequate but roamed on another carrier. One good antenna channel (ABC) and several PBS. We enjoyed our stay and visited good friends from Henderson. We would stay here again if in the area.

This is a very nice quiet park. All the roads are paved but the sites are gravel. Little tricky to find if you don't mark your mileage. Park was very clean and had several activities for every one. For our family this will be a regular stop in our travels. Park staff stopped to collect fee and when he was told we used the honor box there were no more questions. In fact he offered to help set up. The camp store was nice and they have cabins for those who do not want to tent it. My mother stayed in one of the cabins two weeks earlier and loved it. This place is in the country and nowhere near a populated area. We love it and highly recommend it. We camped at Natchez Trace State Park / Pin Oak Lake in a Fifth Wheel.
