Ehh.

Very small Corps of Engineer Park. Has a lot of potential but needs some work. Lots of gravel would be a good start. We could not maneuver our 36’ MH into our assigned spot because of the drop off on the side of the road. Also appears to have some spots that flood when raining. Bathrooms were clean when we arrived but by night four they were a mess. Half of our concrete table benches were mIssIng. Full sign out when a walk up spot was available next to us. Hosts were very nice. only 15 spots or so, as half the campground was shut down at some point. would be nice to see it cleaned up and reopened.

Peace and quiet!!

Bumpus Mills Campground is my kinda place. Outside Bumpus Mill , Tn , back in the woods and small. The campground host was professional, informative and hospitable.

I drove through the campground and had a hard time picking a site. 5 are right on the lake shore. There were two in the treeline that had some privacy, the rest were shaded and open.

The showerhouse was wheelchair accessible and well maintained. Mostly water sports here, but it is located in a good area to explore with a lot of history.

Kids were so excited about seeing a turkey by the camper in the morning. It was hard to choose a site just because they were all so nice on a small hill overlooking the water (though they do vary in shade). The sites themselves are very flat though with concrete platforms. Nice campground but plan to spend most of your time on the water or at another park or whatever nearby.
