“Enjoy the sunset from your waterfront site”

Reviewed May 25, 2015

Overall Rating

We camped here in October, 2014 in a 35 foot fifth wheel. The rate shown is for a waterfront pull through gravel site with water and electric hookups. Barton Springs is a TVA park so you can use your Senior Pass for a discount on the camping fee.

The park is located a few miles off of the interstate in the rolling hills near the town of Normandy, Tennessee. Check in was quick and easy and the camp hosts were friendly and helpful.

The lake level was low when we were there in the fall. During the busy camping season the lake comes right up to the site. Sitting outside watching the lake was a great way to end a long driving day. A doe and a fawn were across the lake grazing. A great blue heron stood on a point out in the lake. A couple launched their canoe and went for a paddle. And we were able to watch a pretty sunset.

There are plenty of things to do in the area. Besides enjoying the water activities on the lake you can tour the Jack Daniels Distillery in nearby Lynchburg, take a hike to see waterfalls and visit the museum at Old Stone Fort State Park, or go antique shopping.
