"Dump station and water for $10"

active staractive staractive staractive staractive star
The dump station and water are behind the general store, toward the interstate, in front of the metal building. Payment is made at the dump station. The area was lite with lights on the building. Dumpsters are also available. We filled with diesel, dumped and filled with water. We did not stay overnight here. We stayed at the Walmart in...

"Funny little place"

active staractive staractive staractive starinactive star
The previous reviewer was right: the manager does like to decorate. As far as we could figure, this is a TVA managed site, not a resort exactly, but I'm not entirely sure. The signage looked official-like, but the proliferation of Christmas decorations throughout the campground is what you'd expect to find at a private camp. The manager couldn't...

"Convenient to Huntsville and a pretty drive up"

active staractive staractive starinactive starinactive star
Most of CG was closed for upgrades when we stayed, so the remaining sites were very full. Strangely complicated arrival and check-in (thru a park guard gate, then check in inside a park store, and then a gate code is required). Shower/restrooms weren't particularly upgraded and we didn't use them. But a quiet night, not much for the money since...

"It's a Thousand Trails..."

active staractive staractive starinactive starinactive star
It's a Thousand Trails... typical of what we have seen of TX Thousand Trails Parks. Hundreds of deer and you will be guaranteed to have deer wander through your site. We were in the upper level as the lower level was pretty crowded. We had 30 amp and water. There were sewer sites available but I didn't care for hanging tree limbs. A32 was...
