We stayed during Columbus Day weekend and had a wonderful time. The setting is gorgeous and the site we had was large, level, and convenient to the restrooms, store and playground. The owners had a multitude of activities for the kids during this particular time (they named ts "Colum-boo" weekend) including trick or treating, crafts, a dance, haunted house, pumpkin bowling and more. My 3 kids had a blast riding their bikes all around and it felt like a very safe place to let them explore. The staff and guests were friendly and tried to make it fun for all. Bathrooms and showers were very clean (showers are $0.25 for 7 minutes so don't forget to bring quarters). I would definitely recommend this campground to friends.

Very remote location but beautiful and peaceful. We had a nice spot right on the lake and it was very quiet. The lake is not clean - the kids swam in it because it was very hot but the water was a brownish color. My daughter and husband went on a horseback ride one day and loved it. Their guide was knowledgeable and they said the scenery in the Appalachians was beautiful. My main negative comment about this campground and the reason I won't go back is that the road to get there is treacherous. It is almost a vertical climb up a mountain with a vertical drop off, no guard rails and very curvy road. Large RV passed us going down while we were going up and I thought we were through! The way down was a little easier because we were on the other side of the road with no drop off. Something else to keep in mind - there was no cell phone coverage anywhere. The woman who ran the store was very nice and let me check my messages from work as I was expecting an important call. I am not complaining about the lack of cell coverage (it was very nice to be disconnected) but it is something to know before you go.

This is a very nice park with shaded, private sites. While staying here you get access to Scusset Beach which is a very nice beach on Cape Cod Bay. Bathrooms are clean and the people that work here are very nice. We stay here often and the area is convenient for sight-seeing on Cape Cod.

Beautiful park with very large, private and shaded sites. Great roads to ride bikes on and a beautiful lake that we enjoyed swimming in on the hot days. The park is convenient to Nashville and the price was excellent. The bathrooms were not clean when we arrived (lots of bugs!) but they were cleaned on the 2nd day and the showers (in another building) were clean. I would definitely stay here again.

I was very disappointed in the presentation of this park. It is new and everything is clean but it is really just a parking lot with parking spaces in it. We actually pulled up to the entrance and the front of the parking lot has a mini-storage business. After you drive by that you go to the back parking lot and there is the RV park. There were not many options in the Memphis area and the location was good but the setting of this park in relation to the price per night was lacking. The bathrooms and pool were clean. I don't think I would stay here again if there was another option.

We have camped at Colonial Woods 3 times in the last three years and it is a wonderful camping area. The first year we camped there we were put in an open site near the pool that we weren't sure we'd like. It ended up being a great place because the pond was just across the road and we could let our kids go to the pool on their own and be comfortable that we could watch them. The bathrooms were clean and the campground had activities such as a movie, ice cream sundae party and archery for families. There is a nice playground and camp store. Our children specifically asked to go back to this campground as we traveled through the area.
