14 RV Parks near Walling, Tennessee
Jul 2011 - $30.00
We have stayed in all sorts of campgrounds around the US and generally are not very picky. That said, this is the worst campground we have ever seen. We drove in and out within an hour. The drive in is very difficult. We spoke with the owner several times, explaining at we had a 35' class A, and she assured us this was no problem. The roads in are very narrow and hilly with many blind curves. The entrance to the park is extremely steep and narrow, with a sharp drop on one side. We have driven our RV through mountains and snow in Colorado (ex. Breckenridge) and California (ex. Cobb Mountain), so we are very used to hills. However, the entrance to this park was almost impossible, and would have been impossible with a less experienced driver. Once we parked, we found that the hookups were at the back of the sites and very far away. Power was 50' away from the RV and water was at least the same distance. While we were attempting to set up, we let the kids go to the playground. We quickly learned that there were wasp nests in the playground equipment, when our 4 year old was stung. Overall the entire park was very run down. No sites appeared to be level. This is probably an OK park if you are just looking for somewhere quiet to fish in your tent and don't want any amenities, but this is not a place for a nice RV or family vacation. - Cocoabeachfam

The Rock Island campground is located up on the ridge and there are no waterfront sites. But almost every site is well laid out and each offer a bit of privacy. The campground was upgraded a few years ago and all the sites are paved and there are two modern bathhouses with $1 washer/dryers. Wi-fi is included and has worked great all the times we have been here and we do get 2 bars of 4G Verizon too. With booster it goes up to 4. Our favorite sites for larger rigs (35 ft.+) are 1,2,4,5,6,7, 11, 12, 23,24,33-sewer, 34-sewer, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 42, 44, 46. The park has one campground section that is open year-round, which was great for us this March, when all the COE campgrounds and other great Tennessee parks are still closed for the winter. - Two Lanes of Freedom

Challenging for a 36 ft motorhome on entry road and in parks narrow roads. Site ok size, room for car in front. Basic water and 50amp. No foliage between sites, lots and lots of people, kids, cars, bikes and noise. Pretty area, hiked a trail and drove around. Would not visit again due to size of roads and lack of privacy. - Herbanddeb

We initially reserved site 37 and for our 37 ft motorhome. There was no way to safely get it level. After calling the office to request a change, we moved to site number 1 and loved it. Site 37 would probably be fine for a small towable RV. You'll want to avoid it for anything of significant length. The layout of the campground is nice. There are just a few sites with sewer hookups. There are a few sites with inclines, some level. Wireless is great. The park itself is lovely and easy to access. Hiking trails provide lovely views and are well maintained. We saw several people tent camping in nice sites. Will definitely camp here again. - Donna and Steve

Super nice park. Would've given a perfect 10 but three major defects. Dumpsters are few and far between. Restrooms/showers were not convenient and seem to be added like an after thought, but realize this is very hilly country and they did an excellent job of utilizing what ground they have. Biggest down fall is the signage or rather the lack of. One sign telling of upcoming park road, but none at the turn. If I hadn't used Google Street View prior to our trip I would have missed the turn completely. Wife's Verizon & my ATT were both strong enough to work, as well as our att Hot Spot for the laptop. No OTA TV. Excellent waterfront site, however Labor Day weekend is not the perfect time for a quiet, peaceful setting. Boaters were eager to share their music with everyone, if you wanted it or not. Will return at a less busy time. - garmp

I'm writing the kind of site specific review I would find helpful...hope it helps someone! Lakefront sites are close together but there are a few gem spots. #11 and 12 are close together, but are great if you're with friends; they share a little path down to the water. #15 is great because it has a path to the water and at the end of the RV sites so no there's no close neighbor on one side. #9 is great for the same reason, you have some rocks to get down to the water but not so on top of your neighbors and great view. #19 has a great view of the water but no direct access. If you have kids it's great because the playground (which is really nice) is right in your backyard. The bathrooms were clean and the attendants were the nicest around. Burgess Falls is a quick 20 minute drive away and absolutely beautiful; take the hike all the way down to the bottom. We did it with our 4&5 year olds in tow, it's not difficult. This is one of my favourite campgrounds. - mamabird73

Price is senior pass. This is a beautiful well maintained clean COE campground. The gate attendants & camp host were all very nice & friendly & you could tell they enjoyed being there. Campers were also very friendly. The restrooms/showers were old but very clean. We would stay here again. - stella fouche

Great little quiet park with a dozen RV sites on the hill, that gets great cell phone and air card reception. Tents sites down by the boat ramp on the river (no hookups at tent sites). The owners are wonderful people who keep everything nice, neat, and clean (no derelict trailers). Clean bathhouse with small kitchen for use during gatherings in the pavilion. All sites have fire rings and picnic tables. Great safe place for a long term stay or a quiet weekend of camping, fishing and boating. Playground for the kids. Only drawback is the 1/2 mile gravel road that is fairly hilly...we had no trouble getting in though...would highly recommend! Admin note: Park is seven miles north of McMinnville in Rock Island a non-existent town. - kakampers

Restroom/shower by site 91 was dirty and almost unusable, but if you walked down to end of the campground there was a newer restroom that was a lot nicer. Great views of water and nice campsites. - Radelm

A nice COE campground for families. Tent to big rig spots. No sewer. Voltage can drop when all the units are running AC. Nice beach, boat ramp, fishing. - ccsvolsfan

Not for couples with children. No slide, swing or pool. Lots of traffic through the site to get to the on location restaurant. I would not feel safe letting my kids outside alone. - Bdavis2900

Great value and a nice quiet country setting. The owner is very nice. Not sure why another reviewer would rate the park unfavorably, but some can be difficult to please. We stayed in 43' rig. - Dngreen51

After staying here before,I decided to give it another try. I needed to order several items online,and they will ship to this park.It was a big mistake,as it's worse now than it was on the previous stay.
This is a poorly run,overpriced gravel parking lot. The owners live next door,but they are rarely in the park. The daily rate is an outrageous 30.00 a day and there are no amenities. Just a dusty gravel lot.
While staying here I also encountered damage by the young kids mowing,I told him on 3 different occasions they were throwing rocks with their gas powered weed trimmers while they were trimming the grass in the gravel all around every site,one of the employees was using one that didn't even have a guard on it. My camper and car were damaged. Never even got as much as an I'm sorry from anyone there after telling them and the so-called manager. A few days later another person got their drivers window broken out by rocks from the mowers.
The owners and employees have absolutely no regard for other peoples property.
Also had a brand new sewer hose that they put holes in with their weed trimmers.
They have minimal rules posted in small print in the office,but none are enforced.I also had a very rude and noisy neighbor that started his old dodge diesel work truck up at 5:00 am every morning just a few feet from my camper,then letting it idle for 30 minutes before leaving for work,when I complained several times,nothing was done and I was told I could move.
There are no amenities included in the price. Their is a restaurant, I was advised by other people staying in the campground that it had terrible food and service,so I didn't try it based on that advice.
There are some pull through sites with 50a,and some 30a back ins,all are the same rate.The sewer and water hookups are very close together,the water hookup is underground just inches from the sewer hookup.
There is also a pay fishing lake that's not included in the rates,they charge extra for it.
They have wifi,but it's very slow. I used verizon aircard,only got 1 bar had to use my wilson amp and external antenna.
No showers here,just a small restroom at the restaurant.
Would never stay there again,there are other places nearby including several coe parks with amenities that are much cheaper.
Rates are 30.00 daily,200.00 weekly,500.00 monthly. - 58fulltimer

What a beautiful park! Vast amount of space and many scenic views. The restaurant wasn't open yet for the season but the snack bar was. There was a general store, a pool, large lake for fishing, etc. In addition to the campgrounds there is a hotel, and lakeside cottages. The roads are paved and extra attention is paid to the trimming of trees and road edges. Walking to some of the scenic overlooks is for the fleet of foot as the rocks can be a hazard. If I had small children I would be frightened. Our campsite was in the D section. We were in site 201. All the sites in the second circle of D are level and paved. 3 were handicap accessible with raised fire rings and fully paved. Our spacious site was at the end. It was quiet even with the two group cottages just beyond. But that might not always be the case. The teens who occupied it hiked all day and were exhausted, thus going to bed early. Other campgrounds areas were mostly gravel but were spacious. C was rather open (no shade) but the others were in the trees. We are looking forward to going back again and again. - Hidden Barb

The park was mostly deserted when we were there. Site D201 has to be one of the best sites in the park. It is within walking distance of the trail that leads to the waterfalls. Space between camping spots was nice, not too close. Our site backed up to a wooden fence which separated us from a couple of "lodge" buildings, but they were not being used. The waterfalls in the park were magnificent, plenty of hiking trails. The only reason I did not rate the park a "10" was because there was some construction across the street and a big diesel pump on wheels turned on every 30 minutes the entire time we were there. It was really aggravating when we were sitting by the fire at night. - jholem1

Very nice state park. Bathhouse was very clean but park was very empty. We camped in the winter so only a couple campers in the park. Most facilities were close (camp office, nature center, etc) Site was level and fairly large. Some of the park has very tight roads and would be difficult to get a bigger rig through. We were in Loop D and it was okay. Park has great hiking and the waterfalls are beautiful. Sites were a little short for us but it was workable. FCF is in the middle of nowhere so be prepared to drive for any supplies. We would definitely return. - KellieOsa

We love this place. We have tent camped and stayed in a trailer in Campground 1. We love the creek - it's our favorite of all the parks we've been to this summer. Playground is great and safe for kids to bike around the Campground loop. Sites on the creek are great but you'll have to park on the grass across from your site since they aren't long enough. Our site had a path to the creek, was shady and wooded, but couldn't fit much larger of a trailer than our 22' hybrid. The state park has lots of little things to do like a small museum and a waterfall play area. Lake was not that exciting - too hot to be in the sun in June. - HousleyinTN

The folks at Davy Crockett Campground have done a terrific job updating and upgrading the resort. Pool, basketball, tennis, weekend activities. Easy to get to. We've been there three times and although it was only for one night stopover, we were very impressed. Friendly, accommodating staff. Just a neat place. One negative... the picnic table outside our unit is next to our neighbor's water, electric and sewer connection, meaning some spots are pretty close together. But you can move that table. - db1112

The campground looks like maybe it has new owners who are trying to turn it around. There is still a lot of work to be done. When we first arrived, we almost asked for a refund and left. The site that we chose was nowhere near large enough for our setup and the CG has some tight spots to maneuver in. However, the employees here did a great job in trying to ensure we had an enjoyable weekend. The site we were moved to was nice 50/30A FHU site with no issues whatsoever. They also have a lake for fishing. A pool, which was not open yet, is on the grounds and looks to be very well maintained. The basketball / tennis court was nice, but the hoops had some issues that need immediate attention. outdated sandbox and a shuffleboard / horseshoes area. We did not use the bathrooms so I cannot comment on those. Verizon service was great. All in all, we had a good weekend sitting by the fire as a family, and in the end, that's what this is all about. If you're looking for a decent place to get away, this is a good spot. If you're looking for resort quality camping, you might want to move along down the road. - James S21

The campground is very nice and clean, but for the rate they really ought to have sewer hookups. They had newer looking wifi, and I had signal, but the internet was down the whole time we were there. The showers were clean but pretty dated and leaky. Water hookups were not turned on, but the frost proof hydrant at the front was on. Took several hoses to reach, didn't seem like a big deal to have turned on the water for campers using those sites. - joshjack

All sites will accommodate campers up to 30 feet, a few sites go up to 35, and only 4 are sized for 40 feet. Our travel trailer is 28 feet and we fit comfortably in a 35 foot site but parked our truck next to the camper. Restrooms are a little older but very clean and well maintained. The sites are platforms - tight for big trailers, but worth the views. Some of the smaller sites only have utilities on the left side (drivers side if backing in), so make sure you have extension cords and long hoses. The staff is very friendly. Fly fishing info and supplies at a store at the park entrance. This is a boater's park. Weekends book up, but rangers said it's quiet and easy during the week. Can be busy and noisy on holiday weekends. - bbpqiggy

Pretty park. VERY unique sites, ours was built on a thick |wooden| platform (supported by huge steel beams and concrete columns) sticking out over a bluff above the lake; super-strong, held our 38' motorhome. Properly placed hookups, our site actually had water spigot on both sides. Limited car parking at site. Spaces are size-limited, most no more than 28' but our site (#39) was long enough for at least a 40'. Check reservation site closely and choose the correct one. Clean bathhouse, nice views of lake, partial shade, playground, boat ramp, open year round, park wifi, good cell signal on ATT and Verizon. Great state park ranger / law enforcement patrol (saw them around 24/7, thanks guys!). We would def stay here again.
Caution = place is HILLY. Very steep driving in/out of campground, unhook toad at the office if not before. - TheGrandMan
