Stayed there one night going to and one night coming back from WDW. It was quiet and clean. The spaces are ok, electric only. There is a nice walking trail that takes you by a pretty water fall. It’s a nice leg stretcher after being on road all day. The bathrooms are old but clean.
This is a small State Park and campground area in the lower part of middle Tennessee, but if you like to see some great waterfalls and a some history on this part of Tennessee you will not be disappointed.
Just make sure you have all your supplies before you get there, it is a remote area with no big cities with 50 miles.
Came as a tenter. It was awesome that they have the rocky pads because it rained our whole trip and we stayed dry. It was very quiet for us and our site faced the open woods behind us. Hiking was great and rangers were friendly! Definitely recommend.
Campground B. The site we had was level and clean. Across from the bathhouse. Always lots of people here but it doesn't matter. Beautiful area and plenty to do.
Some friends and I camped at Standing Stone during the 2017 Solar Eclipse. The state parks in Tennessee all hosted special programs for the event, and Standing Stone park rangers invited everyone to row out on the lake to watch this magnificent phenomenon. They provided boats and life jackets for everyone who registered and made sure everyone made it out on the water in time. The park also provided everyone with takeaway bags that included eclipse glasses and commemorative swag.
The campground and facilities included water and electric hookups as well as bathrooms with showers. Dogs are allowed as are camp vehicles.
The park has lots of great hiking trails, a playground, and a pool with concessions.
At the end of our trip, my car battery died and we called the park office. Within minutes, a park ranger arrived to jump me off. I can't say enough good things about this park.
The downs: spaces are tight, location is in between a railroad and a highway, there is little shade & most spots are all gravel
BUT the people are amazing and make up for it in every way. Staff assists in parking and anything you need. We made great friends with our neighbors who were just as helpful and generous. Live music every night, breakfast and dinner available daily. Really is a great spot. Noise didn’t bother us at all from the trains, but we are from the city.
Bottom line, good value had a great time, would definitely stay again.
We stayed here for the long Presidents Day weekend in a wooded drive through spot with few neighbors. We saw 10 deer one morning and hiked a trail with our 3 boys and 2 dogs. Electric and water hook-ups. Firewood available for cash only. Fire ring with grill and picnic table at our spot.
This this campsite offers everything you need for a great camping experience. Out tent camping was complete with electricity and a short walk to the bathhouse. It also offered a fire pit and picnic table and lots of shade. You can rent a small Jon Boat for $50 a day and they also offer small bundles of firewood for $5. We fished on Kelly Lake and caught about six fish that were keepers.
My sister and I were on a cross country road trip and made a stop here! It was exactly what we needed after being on the road! The restrooms were very clean, workers were friendly and helpful! Campsites were clean, the laundry room was a plus, and the WiFi was appreciated!
Deer Creek properties is located in a secure gated community just minutes from fall Creek Falls State Park. All cabins are fully furnished, provide hall linens and towels, fire pits and many other amenities. We have a community pool and hot tub that is open from memorial day to Labor Day. Our grounds are very spacious and have three ponds available to our guest for fishing. We have a beautiful pasture with horses to pay it and feed.
We were only able to stay one night, was a last minute booking. The campsites were clean as were the facilities. We camped with our 3 children, the oldest being 4, they all had a blast exploring the park. Lots to do and see. We will definitely be back!
There is a lot I can say! All of it is good. The camp site are set to the side and are somewhat primitive. You’ll have to hike all your gear in a short distance. All the hiking trails are fantastic, and the rangers that staff the grounds are fantastic as well.
Stayed at the primitive sites several times for my birthday. Their is parking nearby, but you either have to hike up or down a hill to get too and from the sites. Totally worth it. The facilities are very nice and the hikes I’ve done are lovely! Huge bonus feature is the awesome and picturesque observation tower at the visitor center, which is conveniently near a trailhead. Favorite part of Edgar Evins is the river access, which allows you to do some cliff jumping and offers a beautiful sunset view!
We drove through here scouting out camping spots while we were staying at the cabins. I was disappointed in the campground considering all of the other state parks that are close by. The sites are very crammed together and not very level. We have a tiny pop up camper and I think there was only a handful of sites that we would even consider. With that being said, the area is beautiful with lots of hiking near by. If you are just looking for a place to pitch a tent, this place could be alright. We typically don’t stay in cabins, but we did for this particular trip. I do have to say that Rock Island has some of the best I have ever seen! We also recommend Foglight Foodhouse for dinner. It was amazing!
I love this campground, but hate the reservation system. Problem seeing sites booked, and the party no shows leaving a great site unavailable. Very frustrating. This reason knocks it down a couple notch’s on rating system.
Otherwise this is one of the best campgrounds in Tennessee. Beautiful lake views with rolling hills. Phone, TV, Satellite maybe unavailable on some sites. Campground does offers full hook- up, however some sites do not have sewer or 50 amp. Great for families! Kayaking and fishing and also beach for swimming. Picnic table and fire ring at all the sites. Book early!
Our weekend started and ended rainy with cold/sunny days in the middle, but still always love going to FCF. Lots of hiking and views to take in. B loop is our favorite for camping (large sites that provide some separation/privacy and lots of shade). Broke down camp in heavy rain so it was nice to find hot coffee and a biscuit at the snack bar on the way out. Snack bar also has local craft beer on tap and does growler fills. The park has a General Store with basic grocery and camping/hiking supplies as well as a decent sized gift shop. Bundles of wood for sale but if you talk with the park staff there is always free, cut up wood somewhere in the park for the taking from them clearing downed trees.
Old Stone Fork State Park in TN is my idea of good camping. It’s a good family campground too.
No big thrills and tourist attractions. You can”unplug” and pry your kids away from the electronics. Pre-historical sites and the river trail is very technical and scenic. You can stay at the top for an easy hike or crawl down to the river and follow the trail through the tree roots and rocks. There are informational plaques along the way and a small store/museum at the trailhead.
The campground has good shade and space between sites. The usual picnic table and fire ring. A few of the sites can become water logged if there’s a good downpour. Bike riding to explore the park is quite common so watch your speed when driving in.
We stayed here overnight and had a relaxing , quiet time after exploring the river area. It just has that old feel to it, like Duck River has been there forever and will be there long after us.
