“Lovely waterfront sites close to Knoxville”

Reviewed Apr 11, 2018

Overall Rating

The older section of the campground (sites 1-40) feels like a state park. There is a fairly significant amount of elevation change (including from the loop road into the sites), and sites are somewhat offset to provide better privacy. These sites have 30 amp power, but a few are quite small and would work best for small rigs or vans. Parking in some of the sites could be a little tricky especially because of the curvy loop road and the elevation changes. The bathhouse in the older section is a little too small for the number of sites, with the men's and women's restroom each having only 2 toilets and one shower. Facilities were a little dated but totally functional and clean, and the heated bathrooms were appreciated! The waterfront sites in the older section have much nicer water views, in my opinion. The newer part of the park is much more level, with 50 amp sites that are lined up in parallel with much less privacy. The bathhouse serving the newer area has 4 unisex, lockable rooms that each contain a toilet, sink and shower. We preferred the older section and were very happy with our lovely waterfront site. Staff was visible within the park and very friendly, and the park was quiet and very well-maintained. There was a fairly large contingent of long-term campers; it appears that almost all of the non-waterfront sites were occupied by long-term campers during our visit in April 2018. The waterfront sites seem to be kept available for short-term campers. My favorite sites are 40 (great water view, but close to the boat ramp), 17, and 19 (but beware the long driveway that you must back down). We found the campground to be very quiet, with relatively little activity at the boat ramp, but I can imagine it gets extremely busy during the summer. There are tons of stores (Walmart, Home Depot, Aldi, several grocery stores) along 321 in Lenoir City within 10 minutes from the campground. Tip for hiking: there are trailheads for the East Lakeshore National Recreation Trail to the west of 321, a 5 minute drive from the campground.

“A quiet, pretty TVA campground”

Reviewed Nov 07, 2016

Overall Rating

This is a TVA campground but is under private management. There are several sites with water views, and you can make reservations online and pick your site. They are in the process of making upgrades to the park - most sites have 50amp but some are 30amp. All sites have water, but no sewer. There's not a whole lot to do in the immediate area, but Knoxville is about 30 minutes away. Several long-term sites as well. Most sites look nice and level, some sites have nice space between them but some sites are close together - it's a bit of a mixed bag. We stayed here in November and there were lots of sites to choose from, but we were told that during the summer it's very popular and hard to get a spot. We would stay here again.
