The lots were extremely small: you opened your door into your neighbors window. They packed you in like sardines. You had to cross the road to do your laundry that they offer. Office smelled like animal urine. Absolutely nothing to do. They had picnic tables, like one for every 3 sites. Nobody knew who's the table was. If it wasn't for the fact that we were exhausted from driving we would have kept on driving. Not even acceptable for an overnight stay. If you have to choose between this and a rest area: choose rest area!!
Not what they advertise on website. It should be called "Promise Land Fish Camp" minus direct access to the lake. It is definitely NOT a Resort: not even close! Pool needs to be replaced. All the docks are private. We had to walk a little more than a half a mile to find some rocks to fish from. Operator told us their dock was further away than the 1/2mile walk, we would be better off going the other way. When it says fire pits for every cabin, that does not mean the same for RV's. You get a community pit. They have only 4 RV sites. One looks like a guy lives there so really only 3. Only 4 sites should have been a big clue. Sites are hard to get to and it looks like they put them together real quick just so they could say RV park. The operator told us about a guy who stayed there the night before we did and he forgot to put blocks behind his wheels. He rolled off the gravel hill (backwards) and luckily that the tree behind him kept him from rolling down the hill into the cabins! This place was very hard to get to: not worth the drive. One of the biggest disappointments was NO SHOWERS (!!!) or bathrooms. They don't list that they do. That was my fault for not paying attention. Operators were very nice too bad their park isn't.
Nothing like their website stated!!! I know it is not their fault that the trees were infested with beetles but they could have noted on their site that all the trees were cut down and not even picked up. The water spigot for you to fill your tank was in a place that you couldn't even get you camper to!!! The whole thing is under construction/renovation which is good. It needs it but it should have been shown or stated on website and then let me make the choice. There were men cutting down trees until about 4pm so they didn't want you exploring until they were finished. My son went to go fishing and they told him to come back. When he came back one of the loggers came up to him while he was fishing and said, "You're not going to catch anything because they haven't stocked it yet. There's no fish in there." Website said fishing!!! It was a 50 mile, difficult drive and extremely disappointing. Not worth the drive.
This was a stop over for us on our way to Gatlinburg. Upon arrival the friendly staff point our children to the catch and release fishing pond. After releasing several nice bass (use night crawlers) the kids fed the resident geese and 1 duck who thinks he is a goose. We then spent some time in the well kept pool. In the later evening our hosts drove around the park handing out popcorn. Everyone loved it!! It is one mile off of the interstate. They have level cement slabs, laundry rooms, pool table and hot showers. The office/gift shop has everything you could need. They have a pavilion with a nice BBQ grill right next to the pond. I wish more parks could have this same down home, welcoming feeling! We wish we had time to stay one more night! Thank you to our hosts for making our stay one that our family will always remember. We will definitely return.
