Excellent Park

This is one of the best RV parks we have stayed in awhile. Meticulously maintain with good size, level sites. We had a 50amp water site and the dump station was nearby. This county park is very nice and sits in a very quiet valley. A true gem….

Nice state park campground

Small state park with only 24 camper sites. This was nice having a smaller campground. Average size lots with decent wash house. Firewood available on site for a donation. Walking distance to the caves and hiking trails

Friendly, green scenery, a bit noisy

We stopped over for the night, and it was a good respite. They have mini-golf, a nice pool and a creative rugged play area for the kids. Unfortunately, the pool was closed for the evening cleaning, so we didn't get to use it. There was a beautiful wetland just down from the campground. It is right…

Lots of highway noise but convenient

Very standard rv spots feet from the highway. Hosts are very amicable. Perfect for what we needed, a quick stop on our drive across country. Appears to be lots of activities for kids/families during the day.

Beautiful scenery, awesome fishing!

We had a nice time at Bailey’s Ford park. Kids like the playgrounds. Camp Sites were well spaced and shaded and level and well-maintained. The trout streams were right behind the camp, and fishing was very accessible. We had good luck fishing and a great time. Wish there were more water Spigots. We…

Endless trails, cool cliffs, quiet atmosphere

I have been to Backbone a few times, this spot is one of my friends and I’d favorite. There is no through traffic so it’s quiet. Tons of trails, specifically the spot we camped at was right by the trail so we had easy access. The sites are big so you can camp far back and keep the vehicles at the…

Great until the morning

Generally nice with spots on the river and even flush toilets and showers. Note this and Tailwater West seem to mostly by RV spots with one or two tent walk in sites. The walk in sites are WAY better (read actually separated) at East.

Nice and peaceful until 7:30am when the loudest grass mowing…

Fantastic campground! Plenty of space, even if it's busy. No special amenities, but a nicely kept state park.

Nice place

I called at the last minute. No answer , left a message. Mike called back within 5 minutes! Nice guy, gave us a spot. When we got there, he gave us our choice of 2 spots! Nice looking pool, but we didn’t use it. So nice after a looong day of traveling!

Spectacular view of the lake!

West overlook provides some of the best views of the lake from your own campsite. Campsites here only offer electric hook ups but do provide showers and bathrooms.
