Harrison Bay State Park had plenty of signage so finding the campground(CG) just needed to read the signs as you got in the state park area. We stopped at the office area and checked in then proceeded to C loop back-in site C23 with water and 50/30 AMP. We had read the reviews and were prepared for the tight turns and close sites on C loop. When we got to site C23 there were cars and a truck parked across the street making the turn even tighter. We backed in to this very unlevel site that was just long enough for our 39’ 5th wheel. When we booked on line the site was advertised as 51’. Fortunately, there was a parking spot across the road for our truck. We used most of our levelers on the door side to level. Water pressure was good and we got 3 bars on Verizon and 1 bar on AT&T. The CG has WiFi but it didn’t work very well. We got quite a few OTA channels but only one prime. As this loop has a lot of mature trees, satellite would be iffy. We had a nice water view and direct access to the water. We would not recommend anything over 35’ in this loop especial when the CG is full. B loop is for smaller trailers/rigs and D loop is for tents. We checked out A loop and immediately saw the difference as A is set up for larger rigs and looks newer. Area A also has premium sites with a patio. There’s a large grass area and ball field as you enter and we liked site A15, which is on the water enough you could park your kayak below you site plus plenty of area to walk the dogs. In the premium area we liked A38 that’s off a loop at the end where we could swing a 39’ rig around to back-in. Other good sites all in A loop for larger rigs with water view/access would be 30& 31. If your RV is more than 35 feet go to A Loop, especially if you are a beginner. Also recommend you call the park to verify if your rig size can fit in a site, as the dimensions online seem to be inaccurate. This state park has a lot to offer and overall we enjoyed the experience.
Incredible views at a great state park! Stayed three nights over Easter Weekend in the East Rim. The East Rim is located on the main park road and about 5 minutes walk from the Trail Heads. Your camper is on display for all the day trippers but TOTALLY WORTH IT for the majestic views! Your afternoon stroll includes 2 waterfalls, multiple overlooks, woodlands, and gorgeous canyons. We drove over to the West Rim and it was much more woodsy and secluded, but we were there for the walking so did not mind the activity and open sites of the East Rim.
Bathhouse was tidy, stocked, and heated. Could use a deep cleaning, but nothing that was unsanitary. Super hot showers! Washing machine had been removed but did have a sink to hand-wash and a dryer. Each bathhouse in the West Rim was supposed to have laundry as well so could drive over if necessary.
Our site did have plastic and debris scattered around including inside the fire pit, so we left it cleaner than we found it.
Loved the fact that they had aluminum recycling!
The surroundings absolutely deserve 5 stars, just docking one for the trash left at the site. Will be back to tackle more of the trails!
We booked our first few nights in our new travel trailer at spot A7. Being new RV owners, we were super excited to get out and learn the ropes. We have been tent camping at TN state parks for years and absolutely love the amenities that the state parks provide.
Harrison Bay is nice, but we probably won’t be back. There are four different loops (A-D), but most, if not all, sites are tightly packed. Luckily, we didn’t have neighbors directly next to us, but it would not have provided much space for our canopy and leashed dogs to walk if we did.
The waterfront sites seem to be nice, but you have to drive up a large hill and around a tight curve to get to them. Honestly, I’m not sure how anything over 25-ish foot would easily and comfortably park. We actually witnessed someone put the front of their 5th wheel into the back cab of their truck while trying to take a tight turn. 🤢
All in all, it’s nice for a quick getaway, and the park staff is very friendly. We didn’t use any of the amenities (restroom facilities, playgrounds, etc) so I cannot comment on them.
We will probably stick with other parks.
Stayed here for two nights in late March. The area recently received a lot of rain so the creek was pretty high and fast flowing. There were several marked campgrounds along the creek and a small site further down the road for $15 a night. I stayed at site 4. Sites were very spaced out and mine was fairly clean when I arrived. My only complaint was there were cars frequently driving by throughout the night on the dirt road. Other than that, really enjoyed this place.
In the area to pickup new 5th wheel. Got here late in day and park was surprisingly full. Our site C30 was not level, making our first experience of auto-leveling a fun experience. Actually so uneven that our previous 22foot TT would have been a challenge. Overall, a nice park. Visible streamed tv just fine and cell coverage for Cricket (do not stream on this) Pretty close to neighbors on one side so we can hear kids playing, but that’s a pleasant sound anyway. Would repeat if in area. $28 plus tax plus booking fee
The Gee Creek Campground is apart of the Hiwassee/Ocoee State Park. The state park/campground adjoins the Cherokee National Forest and sits on the north bank of the Hiwassee River outside of Benton, TN. The park has a nice size bath house that is heated during the winter. The showers are push valve with no temperature control, so you will periodically have to push the valve for water. There is an A and B loop. The sites on the North side of loop A are fairly uneven and would require a significant amount of leveling blocks if using a camper. There is a nice nature trail that loops around the park. The park also offers a boat launch for river access. At the visitor center, fire wood can be purchased. There is also a bike maintenance stand at the visitors center. Just past the park, lies the Cherokee National Forest where there are many options for outdoor recreation. Potable water is available from spickets placed around each loop. Each campsite has a concrete picnic table, fire ring, and lantern post. Verizon service was moderate.
What a beautiful state park with many outdoor activities and trails. I stayed in campground A sites were for the most part level and spacious easy hookup. The camp host were a big help got me out of a little trouble. Highly recommend.
