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

This is one of those places I'm glad I went to, but won't be in a hurry to go back. The natural beauty of the area is fantastic, and you must go see all the falls. Beach area was very pretty, but had been taken over by the locals. Campsites are packed in pretty tight, and the way our picnic areas were arranged, we could have had easy conversations with our neighbors...also their dog couldn't seem to figure out that I wasn't in his territory. Most of the sites weren't level and ours required jacking my trailer up to max height to get it off the trailer ball, then all the way down to get it level. Backing in was a little tricky due to signposts for adjacent sites being directly in front of ours. Our neighbors ran over their signpost trying to back in. The two-lane dump station was nice since there are only two non-ADA sites that have sewer access. - VolFan9183

A very well maintained, clean state CG, with narrow paved roads and sites on a hilly rugged heavily forested terrain by the gorge of the Caney Fork river with its steep strata layered bluffs, rapids and water falls. There is a large sandy beach, bike trails, a modern play ground, a tennis court, and river overlooks with steep paths to the gorge. Up stream is a dam with power plant and the great falls lake. The sites are mostly short and unlevel; bring levelers. Paved patios have a unique square metal table with 4 metal attached benches. Lots of poison ivy. Bath house was modern, clean with hot water and a laundry. The narrow winding hilly road through the Rock Island community and in the park are challenging for big motorhomes and trailers; although there were some large RVs there. - 210jem

We stay at this campground frequently, as it is a quick week-end getaway from our home, but it is a campground we would travel some distance to visit even if it wasn't. The park itself is beautiful, with a gorge that takes days to explore, impressive waterfalls, the largest of which explodes out of the face of the ridge (as opposed to flowing over it!), and many nice hiking trails. The campground itself is easy to navigate, has paved, level pads, and well kept picnic tables, fire rings, and grills. There isn't a bad site in the campground, but we'd suggest getting down one of the cul-de-sacs that follow the ridges on the east side of the campground. The staff is really friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. The bathhouses are sturdy, well maintained, and clean. This is one of our favorite TN campgrounds! - The Apiators

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

We have stayed at many COE parks over the past decade and were shocked at the physical layout and cramped conditions here. Motorhomes, fifth-wheels and pull-behinds are crammed in like sardines near the lake. If you have a boat and do not mind being a few feet from your neighbor in an unlevel site, then Floating Mill will meet your needs. Our reserved site (made with due diligence and reading multiple reviews), turned out to be one that cannot be safely accessed with a 42 foot motorhome. We talked to the host and were allowed to spend one night in another site-- could not level and evening power was very low: on average 105 to 107. Our surge protector shut down power once (meaning that it dropped below 104). The bathrooms are ancient and in very poor condition: rusted doors, one toilet did not work, etc. The one bright note is that the hosts were outstanding in working with us and really are clearly an asset to the park. Interesting note: the host said that the first time they came to the park as guests in their larger motorhome, they could not get into their site and left to spend the night at a truck stop. We would NEVER consider staying here again. For anyone who frequents COE parks: this is unlike any that you have seen! And, that is a shame because the lake is beautiful! - flrvers466

We only spent one night but really enjoyed being there. Would not hesitate to return! Beautiful, clean park, wonderful view of the lake. Easy entry and exit. Would highly recommend. - Meyka

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

Secluded, quiet, old growth trees in a historic setting suitable for a long term stay but quick access to I40. New park opened in Fall 2017. All services very good. Great wifi. No cable TV. - OnNTwo

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

Largest SP in Tenn. Saw review in Southern Living mag and decided to come. Park is really off the beaten path and you wonder if you are ever going to get there for the first time. We had reservations but the site they sent us to was very small for our rig. While trying to get to check in a branch over the road took off refrigerator vent. Ugh. Next site un-level as are most sites. That is our biggest complaint that sites were way too slanted, and not maintained. Stay away from C section. Golf course nice, Olympic swim pool, horseback riding, zip line and hiking to see falls. Trail maps leave much to be desired. We left early and did get a refund for other days. - Rolltideroll

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

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

Stayed in Site 54. 53 -- 60 are in the area where it is possible to scramble down to the lake. The other sites are over bluffs and not possible to access the water. 54 was long enough to accomodate our 30 foot fifth wheel. Disconnect and park vehicle on the side of the road. Just enough room. Water and electric worked great. We like this park very much. Love the way the sites are built out on platforms. Never seen another park like this one. - GordonsvilleGal

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
