17 RV Parks near Maynardville, Tennessee
Jul 2008 - $20.00
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

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

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 on our way to KY. Easy on and off from I-75. Lots of permanent campers. Site was adequate for what we needed. Office man was nice. You take yourself to your site. Some trash in fire ring. Roadways were somewhat tight and we had to disconnect to park our tow so others could get through. All in all it was ok for one night. - gmasharp

Very friendly staff. Easy layout to get around in, but not too "structured" (meaning perfect rows of parallel parked RV's). Only stayed one night, but liked parking amoungst the trees rather than just a token tree here and there. Appeared to be quite a few "long term" residents. - Don Gagnon

The super site I was charged $5 extra for barely fit my 23' camper. The paved pad was above grade making it fits unhook. Campground shares road with landfill and quarry. Truck going by constantly. Most of the trailer were permanent with carports, fencing and junk around them.
The speed limit is 5 mph. I was going slow but owner chased my truck down and blocked it from moving on his golf cart. He was yelling and berating me. It was frightening because I was a woman traveling alone.
This is a trailer park with the front spaces for campers! - Susan Hill

Stayed here as an Escapees member. Nice quiet park. Sites are a little tight but not bad. No wifi or cable. We're traveling with friends who are in a 44' motorhome and they had sites big enough to hold them and their tow vehicle. We would stay here again. - RayN

The setting of the park is scenic, in a pretty valley with tree covered ridges on either side. The campground itself is basically a gravel parking lot. Sites are very close to one another with one's neighbor's utilities in your front yard. The grounds are well kept, the rest rooms clean, and there's a nice activity center. The campground hosts a weekly gathering of local musicians who sing and play for a few hours each week. Anyone who plays an acoustical instrument is welcome to join in. Our monthly rate was quite good. The campground hosts traditional Escapees who travel in their RV's full time and also working people who had never heard of Escapees, but joined to get the discount rate as residents of this park. Most everyone is friendly or at least cordial. Because of price, location, and limited sites the park stays pretty busy. My Verizon signal was good. Our satellite TV is via Dish Network. There are plenty of over-the-air TV stations but the primary Dish channels are on the Dish "eastern arc." Honestly, a month was too long for us to be at this park. Had the campsites had a bit more elbow room we would have liked it better but it still would have been longer than we really wanted. I'd return here for a week or maybe two, but that's about it. - nazpaz

Rate was figured from a monthly charge. If you plan to stay long term you will get an un-level cramped site. The sites come with picnic tables but there really is not enough room for them. I cannot say cramped site enough. Wifi is so unusable our Edimax router wouldn't even help and the Verizon signal is weak. A positive note, the staff here is very nice, the utilities work, the laundry is very nice and they have a maze of walking trails. We would stay here again in a short term site but never again long term. - Ghettomedic

Our 3rd stay here and it's obvious they've upgraded and made lots of improvements to the park. The result is a beautiful and well maintained park. It definitely shows pride of ownership. We were only overnighting so we got a pull thru with full hookups. Check in was quick. Site was long and a wide enough to put out our slides and awning. No problem leveling. It's fine for an overnight. Cable and wifi were great. Water pressure was good. There's a nice dog park near the entrance. Lots of permanent and long term residents but their sites looked well kept. We love that we can return to this KOA every year and we'll always get great service and a safe stay. We'll be back. - Flippitti

Overnight stop for us....looks like significant upgrades since my last stay. All new utilities, fire rings, etc. Props to the owners for the improvements. - Cousin Eddy

We only stayed one night while traveling. The sites appear to be mostly pull thru and are advertised as Big Rig friendly. We would have to dispute that claim. The site was barely long enough for our 42 ft RV. If the park had been full - it would have been very difficult to navigate thru it. Leaving in the morning was a challenge. If there is someone equally long next to you - or across from your site, there is not enough room to turn out from the site onto the driveway. Fortunately for us, the site across was empty so we could pull thru it to the next driveway and then turn out. We had to wait until we left the park to hook up the tow vehicle. Overall it is a nice location and the staff is very friendly. - rv time

Courteous ranger. West CG preferred to east. Numerous hiking trails in park and nice visitors center. I recommend park. Sites have adequate separation. - Falco

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

I wish I could give this park a higher rating but there are too many negatives. The drive in from I75 is up and across the mountain on narrow curvy roads. We arrived on a Sunday and the office was closed. The entrance to the campground is very steep and we didn't even venture down the mountain to the lower sites. We chose a site below the office. The sites slope up hill from front to back and needed several blocks to level. The sewer would not drain as it sloped up to the outlet. The sites are very short and not big rig friendly. The new sites are poorly designed and some have fallen away due to erosion. The staff is extremely friendly and the office staff were anxious to make sure we had everything we needed. The view is beautiful and they are in the process of adding a restaurant to the marina. The newer section of this campground is poorly designed and it needs to be totally rethought. I doubt that we will return. - portliz

New owners and staff running the place were very nice. You can really tell there has been a lot of money and time spent in this park to clean it up. A lot has been accomplished. The bath houses are new and very nice as is the pool and lodge. If you have AT&T cell service you're out of luck for service but who cares? The campground is quiet. I wish we had direct view of the lake but overall I thoroughly enjoyed our time here (10 days). New electric, water and sewer are very big pluses in my book. We have a large rig, little tricky getting in here due to the terrain. Would come back again - User1966

We stayed at this campground under the old management and it was terrible. Small sites and lots of older permanent trailers. New owners have gotten rid of the old trailers and is trying to improve the sites. We have a 41 foot DP motorhome and found that the only big rig sites are the NEW gravel sites just below the office. These new gravel sites are level, wide and open for satellite reception. They do not have cable TV. There are very few RV campgrounds around the Norris Lake/Dam area so it was nice to find one with a marina that could accept our big rig. The campground has a new pool but, a lot of work still needs to be done. I hope the new owner continues to improve the campground. - brobertson1999

Employees are friendly. Park is well managed. Club house and pool are in excellent condition. Floating restaurant has outstanding food and drinks. Kiddy playground is new. Family oriented park. - Jerry w reid

Off I75 and in a great location with a nice lake BUT the narrow roads and hairpin curves for a 40 ft. motorhome and a toad is not for the faint hearted. Also, if you book here get directions from the manager. If you follow your gps you may never be heard from again!. The campground is in tiers--at least 3 levels with us staying in the only one we could---at the top and by the office. Sites are very narrow and need redoing. Supposedly there are new owners who plan to completely redo this park. We never saw the pool but there are lots of permanent residents down toward the lake with very untidy yards. I don't believe a motorhome of more than 32 feet could navigate the steep levels to the lower areas closer to the lake. Only 4 miles from I75 this park offers great potential and it will take great money to trim trees, widen roads, and level up these sites which are more suited to short tagalongs or pop up campers. We will not stay here again until improvements are made to accommodate a larger rig. - leciel19

This park has a lot of potential but is very poorly managed. A lot of permanent campers on sites close to the water, which is fine because it is on the water and the lake is their main draw. The permanent sites were poorly kept by campers and staff. We stayed on a newer campsite near the office and away from the permanent guests. These sites were built right on top of each other, if you wanted a picnic table or fire ring you had to go find one. Most campsites were washed out from heavy spring rain, and there is no staff to fix it. This park has absolutely no employees outside of the office. You can tell, because nothing gets ever gets repaired. The neighbor told us that the sites have been washed out for months, and grass had only been mowed once all season. It's a shame, because it could be a very nice park with a some TLC. We won't be back. - User578

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

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
