Although pricey this campsite has everything you want - great WiFi, pet park, propane sales, cabins, picnic areas, clubhouse and event area plus restaurant and small shop. All sites are solid surface and level mostly with full hook ups. They are in the process of upgrading a section of the park, and everyone was crammed into the remaining sites so it appeared congested. On our return leg, we camped in the north section (behind Camping World) and had a bit more space and green area to walk the dogs. It's located in a perfect location for Opryland etc. But as with most KOA's the sites are close together.
The park was busier than I expected for this time of year. Bow hunting is allowed in the woods and most of the campsites seemed to be occupied by hunters. There were two pull through sites in our section, the remainder were back in sites. I think this would be hard to navigate for big rigs, plus there is a long windy drive to the park from the highway. Staff warned us not to walk the dogs in the woods due to ticks, but because if the hunting I didn't want to venture there anyway! Not my favorite of parks and I don't think we would stop there again, with the many other choices around.
Large park right off the interstate but very peaceful. It was a cold, wet afternoon when we stopped so we didn't get to explore much of the park, but we had a great pull through site with patio, picnic area, and a view of the lake through the trees. We would camp here again.
This campsite was an unexpected find after missing the turnoff for Tombigbee State Park from the Natchez Trace Parkway! Only opened year round from March 2013, this is a wonderful spot to camp just 4 miles from the Parkway. Great lake views, tall pine trees, good roads, and camping sites. The restroom buildings looked newer; although, we didn't use them. This campsite is unmanned and you place your camping fee in the collection box. The camp host did visit us later and check our receipt. We had phone service even tho we were off the beaten track! Will definitely return to this campsite in the future.
Traveling the Natchez Trace Parkway we stopped for one night at this State Park. Lake was low, but the rest of the scenery was beautiful with tall pine trees for shade. The road around the campsite was a little windy but the sites were mostly level - all back ins. Around the lake were lots of bramble type vegetation with huge "sticker burrs" that attached themselves to our Collie and had to be cut out of her coat. FYI for pet owners - judging by the fur around our site, this had happened to other campers. Check out the Pioneer cabin in the park for a look back at history. A great spot - we will be back.
Wonderful campground in the middle of Jackson, but you wouldn't know you were near a city! Unmanned campground so call ahead to make a reservation or phone the number on the office when you arrive. Lots of shade trees and great areas to walk dogs, plus a beautiful backdrop of the lake. Very quiet this time of year, but I'm sure it would get busy in summer.
We didn't actually hook up to one of their RV sites, but rather dry camped (permitted by the Casino) in the rear parking lot. Staff were gracious and you can't beat the price! We enjoyed a great meal in the Casino restaurant - 3 courses for under $20! The only negative was the noise from the trains close by - tooted their horns as they approached the bridge all through the night!
Needed to find an overnight spot before darkness, and we stumbled across this recreation area. Payment is on an honor system. Super clean restrooms. No shade, but nice pull through sites with 360 degree views of the volcanic rock surrounding the site. We weren't there during daylight to read the information and do the walk out across the volcanic field, but from other reviewers this would be worth a look. We would stay there again.
Fantastic park although we were lucky to get the last site with hook ups as we didn't have a reservation. Many campers were in the overspill parking dry camping later that day so this park is very popular this time of year. Our satellite navigation bought us in on dirt roads, and we nearly abandoned our efforts. But once we found the campsite it was an easy in and out on tarmac roads via Apache Trail Road from Apache Junction. Our site was next to one of the trails, complete with information along the walk about local bird and animal species and paw prints etc. formed in cement slabs, bird feeding spots and water feature for the wildlife. A coyote walked right past our site in full daylight one afternoon! Loved the coyote sundial along the trail. Located in the foothills of the Superstition Mountains with access to trails up the mountain. Clean restrooms and easy pull through sites. Pet friendly with lots of walks for the pooches to enjoy. Great ghost town gold mine located next to the park.
Stayed just one night on our way west. Great restrooms although we didn't explore the area too much as we arrived late and left early the following day. Nice covered picnic tables by each site. Friendly check-in staff. The park was quiet this time of year, although they booked those campers that were there all in the same area.
A heavy snow a couple of days before our arrival had shut down the top part of the park reached by a steep hill. I walked my dogs in this part, and it was really pretty with sites having a deck and great views. However, due to the bad weather and snow on the ground, we had to stay in the lower part of the campsite which was not as attractive. We only stayed one night as the weather was 7 degrees F overnight so we headed south to warmer temperatures. We'd love to come back and see this campsite in warmer weather. I think it would be much more appealing in a site at the top of the hill. My husband said the men's restrooms and showers were not appealing and could have been cleaner. The women's restrooms were adequate.
We always stay at this park when heading west on IH10. Well managed park with on site restaurant serving home cooked meals at affordable prices. Restrooms at rear of park are full private bathrooms per individual with great showers. Nice trail for dog walking. Laundry facilities. Busy during winter months so you might want to call ahead. We LOVE this park as we travel with our two mid size dogs, and it's important for us to have a good space to exercise them.
