The spots were very narrow for what we have seen at other state parks. Reminded me more of a KOA or Jellystone. Full hookups were a plus. The bathrooms were single unit shower / toilet so multiple people could not use at the same time.

No fire pit at the sites we had so you either had to bring your own or forego. The site we were at (28) had no shade. Other sites closer to the river had better shade.

If in the area might stay again, but wouldn't make it our destination. We camped at Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We enjoyed our stay at Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park. The roads and sites were paved and level with partial shade. The sites are long and easily accommodated our 32' TT and truck. Most of the sites are pull-through, however I had to back in because of space limitations. The walking trails along the Nolichucky River are beautiful. There are excellent road cycling routes right from the campground. The host and other campers were very friendly. We will return to DCBSP!

Campground gets very muddy and the lawn around the sites needs help. Campground hosts (and there seems to be too many for this place) park their vehicles on empty sites. Book your sites online or get what they want to give you. There are trailers there that look uninhabited and it downgrades the campground even further. Not all campground sites have sewer facilities. Most are pull through sites but the turn is pretty sharp. If you have a bigger rig you will cross the mud. Leaving the site is somewhat dangerous as there are large trees at the corner. Backing out could be a better option.

There is a pool a little ways away but does not open until summer.

Lots and lots of ticks....Use caution.

Walking areas outside the campground are nice. Went to Davy Crockets house and it seemed interesting until we spoke to a ranger. They are not sure if he actually lived there. Some years ago they found remnants of foundations in the area and thought one would be a nice place to build or move a structure calling it the Crocket family house. ?

At first it was a WOW factor. Then it was like who are they kidding. Made me laugh.

This campground is good for a night or two on your way to your final destination. Not a place to camp for more then that. The state should sell this area for development with a beautiful Walmart with sites that have sewer, water, and electric.

The Campground, with a little bit of money and effort could be a great destination. Right now to is not. We camped at Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Camp hosts are outstanding as usual in TN. Asphalt level sites. Campground sits on the Nolichucky River. Showers/toilets clean. Sites are next to Crockett's cabin (replica). Good stop for a few days rest. The roads leading into the park are a bit narrow/winding and a real nail biter when approaching another oncoming rig. We camped at Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park in a Motorhome.

We had been there in the summer, just after they finished the improvements to the campground. Since then, the grass has pretty much grown in, but the sites are still rough & uneven, with lots of little rocks and small holes. We stayed in one of the spots that is never discounted, since it is 'riverfront'. Actually, the sites are across the road from the riverfront and have a lot of trees blocking any view. Next time, we will get a spot on another row so that it can be discounted. Bathhouse adjacent to the tent area is a single stall, combination bathroom & shower, so only one person can use it at a time. We camped at Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The park is small and dated. I was told that they will be doing major improvements to their whole campground to include new bath houses this coming fall. Over all this is a nice campground with beautiful views of the river and close to the museum. I camped here in a Class B. We camped at Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park in a Motorhome.

This is your typical outdated state park. The views of the river and Davy Crockett's cabin are nice. We would not use the showers. May go back again? We camped at Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park in a Motorhome.

AT&T cell phone service available. Wish they had campfire rings at every site, but they do have a couple of fire rings that are shareable. The entrance requires a very sharp backwards turn. Rate reflects in-season senior discount. Treed and beautiful scenery. Sites are close together but slides and awnings can be deployed. The Nolichucky River is beautiful.

In Greene County, TN which is so beautiful - it's like stepping back in time to a rural but thriving farming community. The drive from the town of Greeneville to the campground is lovely, lots of pretty farms and great mountain views. This campground is nice, situated on a big bend in the Nolichucky River. $25 price is full-hookup (W/E/S) and includes all taxes. Easy check-in, but no reservations accepted - first come, first serve. Very quiet with the exception of holidays when it's full. Pet friendly, bike friendly, not dish-tv friendly, but very cool with lots of shade right on the river (big trees and lots of them!). We watched a beaver swimming and feeding in the river on our first night here. Improvements have been made in recent years. Full-hookups available, new electic boxes, good water supply. Drive-thru spots may be considered short by some, but our 36' rig and Jeep toad fit fine. Decent roads in/out. Park has a huge swimming pool and lots of picnic areas near the river. One thing lacking is bike and hiking trails, there could be more of them. Great CG hosts (one wonderful couple is from San Diego CA and they work here every year). This campground is about 25 miles off of I-81 at Exit 23 in East Tennessee. It's about 50 miles from the Smokies area. There is a 14-day limit on stays as there is with a lot of TN State Parks. We camped at Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park in a Motorhome.

The rate reflects an out of state W/E/S site. Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park is an old KOA park purchased by the state and run by a dedicated staff doing the best they can with what the state gives them. Recent renovations have added 15, or so, 50amp sites. Those border the Nolichucky River. The remainder of the park's sites are old, 30 and 20amp sites with low power. Our surge guard shut off our 30amp power multiple times due to low voltage. Campground roads and sites are paved but in poor shape for the most part. Most sites are no where near level. The pool is Olympic sized and seems quite nice. Campers pay half price ($2)to use it. The red clay ground does not absorb water. If there is rain in the forecast, expect standing water. The camp-host staff, and 2 out of the 3 park rangers are wonderful. The office does not open 'till 2PM but you can find the camp host if necessary. We'd return if we could get a 50amp site. We camped at Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park in a Motorhome.

Wonderful, quiet park. Nice level sites, clean restrooms and showers. Pull-thrus. Outstanding staff and camp hosts. Probably real busy and popular in season. Strong Verizon signal for cell and Internet. Would definitely stay here again. Rate is off-season, out-of-state senior. We camped at Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park is a little tricky to get back to, roads narrow but not much traffic and worth the trip. Located on the Nolichucky River, the atmosphere was wonderful. Lots of trails and places to wander, several pull thru sites, not a lot of privacy on the pull thru's but the availability of sewer in a state park made up for the lack of trees between sites. The sound of the river running by as you sit at your campsite was truly awesome. One of my favorites so far We camped at Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The distance from the main highway to the park is a little on the long side. However, the ride is worth the wait. Although the roads a narrow they are passable. When we arrived it was confusing to me. I had to pull over and get my bearings as to how to get into the camping area. Our 1st impression was wow. The campground is nice and level for the most part. There seems to be 4 rows of full hookup sites and two areas for tent camping. One of the rows looks to be complete pull-thru. There are plenty of trees in this area too. The bathhouse was clean and in good repair. I noticed some playground equipment just outside the camping area. This park has a nice pool (we did not use, out of season). Over next to the pool was some basketball goals and I saw 2 sets of horseshoe pits. There was not a camp store, but there were several large pavilions. There shelters could be rented to have a good sized party. I only noticed one walking trail. It is a short one. There is a river right next to the camping area. It, too, was clean. The overall area looked safe and very inviting to families. Most of the full hook up sites appears to be concrete. All sites had a picnic table. Only the tent sites allowed for an on the ground fire. We camped at Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nice enough park; however, it is a little tight for bigger rigs. My chief complaint is that the toilets would not flush in the women's bathroom. When all three were "dirty" it smelled as if someone has used the shower to urinate. I had to flush a toilet 12 times and it never did clear. There's very little assistance from the workampers. There are no directions when you arrive, just a note saying they will be on at 2 pm but a helpful camper said it would probably be more like 4 pm. We camped at Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Campground is located in a good location. State law enforcement presence is high due to this being a state park. Rules are strickly enforced. Breakers in campground trip frequently if ac units are in use. Very few sites with sewer hookup. We camped at Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
