This campground is 8 miles north of Wytheville but worth the drive. We were able to camp right next to the creek that runs through the park. There is lots of shade. For big rigs, you can make it into the park but have to be very careful. At one point there are two pines that you go between and it is a very tight fit. The Wi-Fi was excellent and the people very friendly and helpful. Each evening after dark on our drive back to the park, we saw deer grazing along the road. The park is more on the rustic side, horses are even welcome. I gave this a park a 6 rating because it did not have paved road or sites. But it is a very nice laid-back park and more with the mountain/cowboy feel. We would stay here again.
Very nice. Our back window overlooked the Mississippi, being just yards from the river's edge. There were dead trees stacked around from the May floods but just a reminder of how dangerous this river can be. We had a concrete pad but other site nearby were gravel. The sites were level without shade as this is a new area of the park. There were several barges that passed by during our overnight stay.
The park is one of the most visited in Tennessee, we were told. This year they did not take reservations for campsites and they stayed full almost all the time. The sites are not level and in Loop D where we stayed the sewer was up hill so was very difficult to drain. We noticed that most sewers had this problem even in the other loops. They have started remodeling some sites and were going to do some this summer but the budget didn't allow for it. All of the park rangers and office people were very friendly. The lodge had a Friday night buffet of catfish and frog legs, missed that one but hit the buffet on Saturday and Sunday. Of course the falls are beautiful.
We loved this campground. By reserving early we were able to get a site where our rear window overlooked the stream. The only thing better would have been to have some utilities but it was still very nice. We appreciated someone's advice not to bring a large RV over on 441 from Gatlinburg and not to come across on Hwy 19. Best to stay on Hwy 74/23, excellent road. Don't miss going over the mountain on 441 to Tennessee.
We stopped here while passing through the area. Next time we hope to spend more time. We had a lovely spot right on the lake. On our site #15, we had to back quite a ways down to it but other than that it was just what we had hoped for.
Very beautiful and clean. The campsites are divided by trees and foliage so very quiet. We loved eating at the lodge, enjoying their incredible view. We even saw someone hang gliding as there is launching place nearby the lodge.
