We stayed here in Feb 2020 with family in another rv. We had 2 spacious sites next to each other. Electric and water hookups. Both sites were level. Park staff and camp host helpful and friendly. Hiking was enjoyable and easily accessible from rv camping area. Bath houses were clean and water was hot. Will return in the future .
We stayed here for a weekend last month. Campground A has the roomy, level lots and B has right narrow lots that are very uneven with a plethora of trees around. They have a pool, restaurant, hiking, boating, kayaking, paddle boarding right at the campground on Chickamauga Lake and the Tennessee River. Harrison Bay is beautiful. Our only complaint is that there looked like a few years worth of dead trees stacked behind our spot.
We stayed on site 39. It was really large, gravel, flat spot with lots of shade trees. Looked into the woods. Plenty of space for our two golden retrievers. I liked that the fire ring was a little away from our camper, so not to worry about the awning with a big fire. Most sites were setup that way. Any of the sites in the West Rim area are really nice. They have nice bathroom facilities that are clean and also laundry facilities. The campground itself was very clean and well kept. They do have playgrounds, very small fishing pond, disc golf. Camp hosts were very friendly and helpful. Connecting trails from campground to the major trails. Due to COVID-19 I saw more trash in some areas than usual. People if you come to the park, be a good steward and take care of it. Great place for families to enjoy the outdoors. One of Georgia’s great State Parks!
This is a beautiful park! Tons of wildlife, waterfalls and swimming holes to play in, lots of great hiking. They have an amazing ropes course, that I highly recommend. We did it with my kids, 10 and 8, and had a blast. There is great dining, retail stores and the people are really nice. They have a golf course, but we did not play. An overall great time.
BUT…the only reason I’m not giving it a 5 star, is our camp site. We stayed in campground C, which is so packed together that I had to get people to move their cars just to back my popup in. It rained one day and a bunch of mud washed down into our site. We drove around campground A, B, and D and wow!! We felt gipped because they were beautiful! Spread out, playgrounds, shaded sites and open fields. If you go, don’t stay in C if at all possible.
Beautiful, clean, well-maintained campground along Tims Ford Lake. Most campsites are on the water with incredible views. The campsites are shady and nicely spaced. Boating, fishing and kayaking (kayak rental in the office) are among the many outdoor activities found at this State Park. Ease of access to the Stare Park including wide roads within the park. Highly recommend
We only stayed one night, but wouldn't have minded another day or two in this welcoming country park.
We were traveling over the Independence Day holiday, and all our plans and reservations went to hell when we were waylaid by mechanical issues. When we finally got underway again, it was late in the day on July 3rd.
I called places along our route, and kept striking out. It was hot and humid, else we'd have just found a boondocking spot somewhere. By the time I called Whispering Oaks, I basically just apologized for even asking if they had space on a holiday weekend. The gentleman who answered the phone said he was sorry, they didn't, and then threw out "unless you want a 30 amp site."
We're a 50 amp big rig, but could deal by running only one AC. So we jumped on it.
When we arrived, the man I'd spoken with (can't recall his name 🙃) checked us in, backed us into the spot, and was generally just the perfectly welcoming and kind host anyone likes – but who is especially appreciated by weary travelers set back by repairs.
They were getting ready for a cookout the day we pulled out. Even if we don't always take part, it's nice to see a campground offering organized activities. Manchester TN might not be a bucket list destination, but if we're passing through again we'd stop at Whispering Oaks to chill out in the country for a day or three.
We loved the shade trees. The staff are so attentive, they are very accessible and are present all day into the evening without being intrusive. They ensure you get to your site and are satisfied. The only “down” part of our stay was our site. For us, being next to the pool and playground was not as preferred as it would be for others. We don’t have kids and the place has lots of kids running strong doing what kids do. Our site would have been better for those with kids. With Covid, the playground is closed, however that didn’t stop summer of the kids. Kind of tough time to enforce and they are having a good time. So, not really negative, just a preference for us.
This is our first experience at a state park, so we really don’t have anything to compare it to. It’s clean and quiet, with wooded sites that are spaced out so it feels very private. The hosts and rangers are friendly and helpful. To get to waterfalls, it’s quite a hike. A tow vehicle or bikes would be ideal to get around because the park is expansive. We did the Bluff trail which was nice and easy. The moonshine trail was very easy.
Tip!!! If you are coming from Nashville area, you are MUCH better coming in on 70 S through Murfreesboro than the way Rv trip wizard will route you! We learned the hard way.😐
We stayed overnight on a walk-in site and had a wonderful time. We have two dogs and loved having a little more space tucked back into the woods. We grabbed pizza from Lookout Mountain Pizza right outside of the park on our way in and the next morning we hit the trails for some beautiful hiking.
