We went to visit and look this campground over, and the owner gave us a very detailed tour. Talk about friendly! We had driven to this park 5 or 6 years ago, only to drive away and put it on our "do not go here" list. We thought we'd check it out once again, and we were very pleasantly surprised! The park is clean, showers and bathrooms extra clean. The cabins are very well appointed. The activities list goes on and on, and they are very motorcycle friendly. Visit the site and have a look at the pictures. They're honest pictures that give a true reflection of the feel of the park. I would give them a much better score if they had more sewer sites than they do. - TaylorShopping

This park was a great find. It is a lakeside setting in a remote area near Manchester, TN. They can accommodate big rigs as sites are up to 60 ft long. Sites are back-in or pull through. Although they only have water/electric currently at sites, they have been approved to add sewer to the park sites. They have a dump station and laundry. A commissary, BX, and golf course are a short drive away. You can rent a boat, kayak, fishing pole, or similar gear at the recreation office for a reasonable cost. Wifi and tv/satellite can be marginal depending upon your location. There are a lot of trees to interfere with a sat signal. Overall a good value for $12 a night or $300 a month.
Call the park prior to arriving to make a reservation and learn your site number. After arriving you have to unhook and go to the recreation office, which is several miles away, to check-in. Your credit card will be charged when you make the reservation. - sarge 19

Fairly tight roads leading through park. Can be very difficult to back into sites due to trees and posts. A few sites are advertised as "drive thru" but that can be deceiving. Our site was supposed to be a "drive thru" but it had a fire pit in the middle of the drive. I inquired about moving the empty fire pit two feet so I could drive in but was told "absolutely not". The employee told me "it was my problem" on how to get my trailer into the site. Had to back my 5th wheel up a steep incline that caused the trailer to almost hit the top rail of the truck bed. The bathroom was old but clean. Nice location on lake but you need to be very aware of the site you pick if you have a rig over 26 ft. Satellite reception is possible depending on the site. No problem with Verizon phone service. The park WiFi worked well. About 6-7 miles from I-24. Not really convenient. Probably would not stay here again due to uncertainty associated with trees and site locations. - Alaska Jim

Typical military hassle of going through a gate to get to the registration desk three miles down the road. Check-in at 2 pm, check-out is at 10 am. Swimming pool is not in the CG, but there is a swim area in the lake with nice sandy beach. The whole CG is filled with mature shade trees. The showers/latrines are typical no-frills concrete structures. Pull through sites are marked from the wrong side, but we had no problem maneuvering our 29' MH with Ford Ranger in tow. - Full-Time Roamers

This little muni campground has much promise but is lacking care and upkeep. The restrooms were almost un-usable, no toilet paper in the womens room at all, and clearly hadn't been cleaned in a long time. There was much litter scattered on the grounds and the firepits hadn't been cleaned out since Daniel Boone passed through here. Come-on' Winchester... you can do better. - T Hoch

We are very pleased with the view (sites 15/16). However, the park is poorly maintained. The restrooms were DISGUSTING, there wasn't any toilet paper, there was poop all over the walls in 1 restroom, there were dirty tampons in the floor. Next time we'll save our money. - Rhys_Mom

Great little campground run by the City. Very close to downtown Winchester on the shores of Tim's Ford Lake. Some campers had their boats pulled up on shore. The camping is right next to a ball field and we watched women's softball and little league games: some night games but they were over by 9 pm. The biggest negative here is the restrooms and showers. Very filthy and an after thought. The men's toilet had a shower curtain and the stall was about 2 feet deep, so if you wanted privacy you had a shower curtain draped on your knees. We used our own facilities. Women's were the same: neither side had any toilet paper!! - Coyote Capers

Price $37 including $5 tax. A long stay section loop on a hill side with a lower short stays flatter loop, plus a smaller hilly loop. Fine gravel site surfaces. Paved CG roads. Some sites under beautiful tall trees, others in the open. Beautiful views of the lake and along side cove. Cove sites good for boating access. Clean bath house with men and women toilets on front and 4 showers on back. A large sandy badminton court but no playground. One dump. Nice hosts. A boat trailer ramp around the hill off the CG. - 210jem

We have enjoyed the campsite one week end a month last year and this year. We are retired and would really enjoy camping at Devil's Step if it were open some of the winter months. My only complaint is the gravel on the pads. You can't keep it out of the campers it so small it makes a mess and cuts vinyl floor covering. - Scarlet Holloway

This is one of the state parks that has gone thru a remodel. For once the state got it right on this one. Pads are wide and level. 50amp power. But the things I didn't like were folks riding around on golf carts, a van with its generator running and dogs not on a leash. I saw a park ranger ride thru several times but she didn't address any of these issues. The campground host wasn't helpful either. Also there are full timers in this park. - chub

Wish I could give 11 stars...can't say enough about manager and his staff. Helped me out when my fifth wheel battery failed, lent me tools, very friendly. Campsite had a nice view and you could walk about 100 feet to a great view. Internet was strong. Pull through site was easy to manage. These folks went out of their way to make me feel comfortable at all times. It's what other RV parks should model themselves after. - lesstraveledroad

I can agree with most of what the others have said about this RV park. It is a beautiful setting with a view over many hills and valleys. It is very well maintained with seasonal decorations. I should have asked when I made reservations about the price but I assumed that it would be what was quoted on their website $30. When I arrived I was charged almost $37 per night even after I mentioned the website stated $30. The distance going out there and up the 8% grade up the mountain had me settle for this higher amount. If they want to charge this much they really should advertise it factually. The gravel drives and sites were done nicely but I did have to put 5" of blocking under my front tires to be level. This park is designed for self contained units as it only has a single restroom and shower in the office. This was not a problem for us as we use our own facilities. We had a 40' mh w/ toad. It is 23 miles to Manchester and 26 miles to McMinnville. - JAWS

This is a great place to stay if you are planning to visit the Jack Daniel's distillery and other sights around Lynchburg and Tullahoma, Tn. This park is aptly named. The campground sits on a hilltop and the view is simply beautiful. The grounds are very clean, the sites are level, and the utilities are nicely situated. Our power never fluctuated and the water is nice and cool. The sites could be a bit further apart, but we had no problems extending our slides and awnings on both sides when we set up our 44' motorhome. Being able to sit on the dock, over the pond, watching the sunrise with a cup of coffee and my dog, made my days. We loved the peace and quiet of this park, along with the beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The owners could not be more friendly or helpful. We will definitely be back this way again. - glenstmary

This is a nice campground. It is by a lake and a public park. We were able to run and swim our dog early morning without a leash. The park is clean. There are some long-term rigs there. I wouldn't say it handles big rigs very well--at least not 40' motorhomes! We pulled in after dark...I would not recommend unless you are familiar with the park! Their website's directions are not correct so be cautious! We tried a couple sites before deciding on one. Pads are gravel and soft (maybe just because it is early spring?) Our front jack went in about 6 inches. The pull-thrus are half-circles so if someone is in "front" of you your ability to pull out of your site could be very tight. There is no sewer at the sites...only dump station. Overall, I think it would be a great park for smaller rigs. - Gma Linda

Love this park. This was our first time here since its 1.5hr out from our house. Very friendly staff also making sure everything was ok. Plenty of room for our kids to play safely and a huge bonus was the big playground area. Lots of area to fish which my husband loved. They had a big fire pit at every lot. Also a pole to hang a lantern if you needed one. Right off the interstate and close to a local Walmart if you forgot anything. Only thing that I personally don't like is they don't take reservations and do anything online. BUT WE WILL DEFINITELY COME BACK - Campingfamily4life

This is a very nice,clean campground located on Nickajack Lake/Tennessee River. Friendly management that were very accommodating! I have a small Casita TT, but the park could accommodate up to the largest Class A, I'm sure. Since I was only staying for the night and not even unhooking, the manager took me to a pull through site looking right at the lake. It was so pleasant, I hung around until almost noon the next morning! Electric and water hookups at sites, dump station on site. Perfect if traveling through because it is literally 2.5 miles off of I-24. They are open year round except for two weeks in January. They don't officially take reservations but if you know that you are coming in that no, you can call them and they will hold one for you. I will definitely stay there again overnight and hopefully for a few days sometime! - coosa

Lovely, shady KOA with lots of concrete paved sites. Some sites had gravel. Our site right by dog park with lots of agility equipment. RV park clean with friendly, attentive staff. Beautifully decorated for Halloween. Near restaurants and shopping in Manchester. Convenient for travel near I-75. - Andrea W

A bit pricey. Interior roads had tight corners. Good wifi. Fuzzy cable. - CSM Carolyn

If you are one of those people who requires absolute quiet, drive on by (the campground is located parallel to busy Interstate 24). If you are looking for an inexpensive overnight stop, drive on by. This is a multi-faceted recreational park. The campground was gaily decked out for Halloween as we were escorted to our campsite. There are significant amenities here for families, tent campers, cabin guests and RV'ers. Firewood sales, propane sales, movie nights, bouncy house, tricycle track, fishing pond, two large tee pees with group pavilion, two amenity levels of cabins, a train ride for kiddos, camp store and gift shop. RV sites range from simple gravel pull-throughs to concrete pads with elaborate patios. Water pressure was strong & reliable. Park Wi-Fi was strong. Restrooms, showers and laundry were immaculate. The park is nicely forested and shade is abundant. These niceties are not free, but since we didn't use most of them, $52.87 per night for a simple gravel campsite was not a compelling value. Other observations: a single dumpster for the entire park; pull-through site at #12 was not level, cable TV picture quality was poor, and utilities location was far apart. Management was friendly. - TMN-15

An amazing peice of property that could have so much potential. $20 a night for electric and water for our RV. We've always wanted to stay here because it looks so pretty when driving by on I-24, but what a disappointment. The bathhouse is an embarrassment. The light doesn't work, there is trash all over the place. No door on the stall. No paper. The garbage doesn't look like it's been picked up in a week. Really sad because the property could be so lovely. - Harbinger77

This campground is on a peninsula in the Nickajack Lake/Tennessee River and is a prime location for those who like to fish or kayak with boat ramps, fishing piers and boat trailer parking. I did not see a lot of geese or droppings. It has a lot of seasonal campers but the ones we met were all friendly. It also has a lot of tents especially along the water. It may be difficult to find an available site in the summer because of the seasonal campers. I was able to reserve a site by phone in May. The office for checking in is a little tricky to find due to lack of signage and is in the middle of the park up on a hill. I recommend that you go to their website (www.marioncountypark.com) and print a map of the campground so that you can see which roads to take. It appears that the people who manage the campground live in a yellow mobile home which is where you check in. The dump station is near the office. There are 2 bathhouses. The one by the office is new and has 2 personal rooms with 1 shower, 1 sink and 1 toilet. The other one is very old with only 1 shower, 1 sink and 1 toilet. There is no sewer at the campsites and not all of the sites have 50 amp. The sites looked level, pads are gravel, only a few have a picnic table. There are fire rings all over the park. You can see this campground from I-24 but the road noise did not bother us at all. It is easy to get to from I-24 exit 158 which has a Loves's Travel gas station and restaurants. There are beautiful views of the water and mountains. The list of rules says no alcoholic beverages. The only complaint that I have with this park is that it has low water pressure. - Lini

We arrived in our 40 ft RV and were a little confused which way we needed to go as there is a sign for tent campers and one for RV camping. We thought "we're RV camping, so let's go that way". Wrong. We had to go up to the office where it said tent camping. Anyway, the campground is very nice with decent sized spaces. We were in space 29 which has a fire pit and a nice view of the river. There are a few geese here, but nothing to gripe about. The only real negative I have is the trash left laying around. The fire pit had cans and cigarette butts thrown in. There was also trash thrown all around one set of trash bins. I cleaned both up in an effort to make it nicer for the next person. The shower/restroom area was so-so. I've seen better, but it was ok. We may come back again. - Jeannette E

We had a water site and it was not worth the $40.00 it cost . As stated before, water is a scum pond. Lots of noise in morning. A lot of long-term sites. - This Old Man

Not sure if I should even give this park a 3. Lots of long termers that live full time. If you want to sleep in, forget it - there's motorcycles and loud trucks leaving early in the a.m. There is NO cable unless you want to make a $100 deposit for the box. And you don't pick up anything over the air.
By the time we realized the paper the office gave us didn't have a WiFi code on it, was too late for us to go to the office and ask. Couldn't call as there is NO cell signal in the park.
The restaurant is only open on Saturday nights.
This part of the lake needs attention. Green algae way out in to the water.
The putt putt course had caution tape all around it. The pool was closed. The roads are not in good shape. No picnic tables at the sites. Odd layouts for hookups. You could tell at one time this park could have been a destination with lots to do, but it's worn and thread bare now.
Be very careful driving in and leaving as the road is basically single lane with ditches right on the edge.
Why did we stay here? The park where we wanted to stay was full, and we needed to be in the area. We would not stay here again - if we needed to be in the area & could not get our preferred park, we'd stay farther away & drive more. - 3catstravel

RV Park is set back away from traffic, very very quiet, sites are spacious, cable with zillion channels, long termers are nice, water front sites are for overnites in summer, but river view still there for other sites inside rows. Staff are excellent, Joy in particular!! Pool is nice, marinas on the river, with boat rentals and cabin rentals. I had a problem with a work contract there in Chatanooga and the manager was gracious enough to give me a refund, they didn't have to do that, but they did. Sure the geese are around but all you have to do is hose down your site, they stay on the river and come ashore to walk around. Some of the sites don't yet have the new cable connections in but the staff are in the process of completing this. All in all its a great place with mountains on each side of the marina, so cell coverage is scanty, but I had no problem with their WIFI and I was pretty far back, its an issue they try to work on constantly. I definitely will try to come back just to relax!! - Ms Mary
