7 Parks near Pikeville, Tennessee
Apr 2016 - $20.00
Rate reflects 2 nights PA and 1 night full price. I do not consider this park as big rig friendly, but others might. Sites are narrow and close. Sites by the road are on an angle that puts the front of the coach higher than the rear. If you have a toy hauler, you could have a steep drop out the back of your coach. First site was so unlevel my auto-leveler couldn't level. Second site was not as out of level so the leveler worked. Second site was also longer than first. There was some road noise and it was bothersome at night. A loose dog marked my coach's tires. Never did see the dog, just the spot on the tread. Game room was decent. No fenced dog area. No cell service, but there is a free landline phone by the office. Lots of good, twisty, motorcycle roads in the area. A bit of a drive to Pikeville for groceries or restaurants. Follow the driving directions on the web page. If you go it on your own, the twisty roads will not be kind to your coach. - TH travelers

This campground is an out-of-the-way place to stay. It is truly, out in the country, and the perfect spot for those wishing to avoid the big city noise and hustle and bustle.
Some of the sites are fairly level, but about half of them are so uneven that campers are required to use several boards to get their rigs level. We were lucky in that we had one of the more level sites and had no problem getting our 44' coach level.
This campground is very clean, quiet, and friendly. There is a nice pond on site which is catch and release only, and has been stocked with bass, perch, and bream.
The staff is very cordial and helpful, and works hard to keep the facility clean and in working order. We will definitely stay here again as we pass through the area. - WhiskeyMan

This campground is a diamond in the rough! Very Very Very well maintained! Very clean facilities! Very friendly-helpful staff! Excellent place to sit back and relax! Awesome for kids! We had 4 kids with us - ranging from 7yrs old to 12yrs old...not once did we hear "I'm bored". The game room was very nice and clean! Comfy furniture. The kids enjoyed playing air hockey, pool, and foosball. Can't say enough good things about this place! Very laid back and relaxed campground atmosphere! We stayed over Labor Day weekend, and they were very busy - even with all the added holiday campers, the place was still very quiet and relaxing. - The Frizzell Family

This park is wonderful for families with children. Lots of things for the kids to do. The grounds are beautiful and well taken care of. A great place for a family vacation. - Marsha Smeltzer

My kids (10,6) and I tent camped here for one night and hiked the Fall Creek Falls trail the next day. We stayed in loop A near the open green space (+playground & a volleyball) which was great because there were a bunch of kids running around. The bathhouse was older but clean. Everyone adhered to quiet hours. We did not have a chance to use the pool or visit the gift shop. We will be back for a longer stay in the future. - Art Copeland

I read about this state park in Trailer Life Magazine, where it was rated quite highly, and I now see why. It's a great state park--clean, forested, with a large lake, boat rentals, a pool, trails, waterfalls and streams (that you can swim in), horseback riding, etc., etc. We spent two days and three nights here, and had a great time. We probably could have spent another day to see the few other things that we didn't get to see. As I mention below, if you don't have a car expect to do a lot of walking or biking.
I was a bit disappointed with the site for our motorhome, though. I have a 30 foot long Class A RV, and our site was too short for it. The site was very unlevel, and because our site was so short, the front of the RV was only a couple of feet from the road edge, pitched down beyond the leveling capability of our RV. Backing up much more than we did would have put us into the site of the trailer behind us. For an RV of our size, they should have recommended a different site, especially when I told them how large our RV was upon making the reservation.
If you're coming to this park in a motorhome but you don't have a car, expect to do a lot of walking or biking. It's a big park and if you don't have a mode of transportation, it's a lot of "huffing and puffing" on foot or by bike up and down the hilly roads around the campsites. We were in loop D in a motorhome with no car and pretty much had to walk everywhere. Everything you want (trail heads, nature center, pool, general store, docks, etc.) is at least a 15 minute walk, sometimes longer, along combinations of trails and roads that other cars are using. - ualdriver

Clean, level, concrete pads. Lots of room in between sites. Hookups well placed. Beautiful water view. Live band the Saturday night we stayed. Loved the outdoor swings at certain sites. Nice place to fish. Only wish they offered jet ski or boat rentals! Roads are tight getting in-but doable! - n2camping

Friendly, helpful staff. Good sized, level concrete sites with good amenities including good WiFi and cable. If you have a boat it is even better. - padre44

I am going to try and rate this campground fairly. Getting there is a little challenging. First you have a really steep hill to pull after you turn in off hwy 30. After that the road is very narrow but as long as you drive slow you can make it. This campground has good cable and wi-fi. The concrete pads are level and wide. We had no trouble with four slides and awning. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. The store is well stocked. I think most people come to this place to fish. I know while we were there I caught a nice mess of crappie for dinner one night. We will go back. - chub

We were only here a couple of days, but the campground was very nice, clean and friendly. It would be nice to have a pool, but we wouldn't have had time to swim anyway. I will definitely go back. They had great wifi. - Dkkirkland

Had a great site backed in between the trees so it was shady almost all of the time. Very quiet.
It is a ways out of town and off the highway. - mrracechaser

It feels like home! We received a wonderful welcome from the owners/managers (such nice people!) The trees have not budded out yet and pots and pots of daffodils are such a welcoming sight by the office. So much improvement each time we visit this park! They work so hard to make this such a beautiful place to stay. Sites are gravel and mostly level. Each site has plenty of room. Lots of places to go locally. It is so beautiful up here on the plateau! We just love it and plan to return each year. - lindaguthrie

What a little gem this city park is! Great staff, beautiful lakeside location, spotless bathhouse....all for a very reasonable price. There are 8 RV sites with W/E(20/30/50A) hookups and 5 tent sites with water-only hookups. Sites are open, but there are some trees for summer shade. Fishing is the main pastime here. There is a boat launch and marina.
The only thing I can find here that is a problem is that sites are very unlevel - even with levelers on our rig, it took nearly all my blocks to get us fairly level. - WxToad

We stayed in area 4, very shaded, woodsy, and quiet - site 106. The only reason I did not rate the campground a 10 is that, first, the outside sites in this area are so sloping that it was impossible to get level with a motorhome (it didn't really bother me, but bothered my husband), and second, the water & electric were on opposite sides of the site. If we hadn't had an extra hose, we could not have hooked up to the water. We noticed site 105 had the same set up. Otherwise, everything was wonderful - a beautiful campground, wonderful creek with walking trail, lake with rowboats, kayaks & canoes to rent, and a great restaurant. And very clean bathhouses. - roydogs

Stayed at the full hookup loop. Paved asphalt site required quite a bit of leveling for our Class C: front tires were off the ground. Wonderful state park with sewer hookup. Bathrooms are old, but clean, with great water pressure from the shower head. Have stayed here several times and will stay again. - n2camping

This is a great state park with nice large shaded or sunny lots. The price is great and the lots are well maintained. Lots may be reserved online. There is a good restaurant in the park, a lake with paddle boats and a large swimming pool. My family stays here quite often. - East TN Camper
