One of the best state parks I have visited

This state park is one of the best maintained and managed I have ever stayed in.  There are also many activities and beautiful scenery to take in!  I stayed in the B loop camping area.  This loop seems to be preferable to loop C which has sites much closer together.   The Nature Center and Cane Creek Falls (near nature center) are must-sees.  There are many other waterfalls in the park as well as hiking and mountain biking trails.  Also a big lake for fishing and kayaking.  The showers/bathrooms in the B loop are not luxurious, but, are clean and nice.

Beautiful park

Nice campground, wide variety of campsites, most of them level. Decent bathhouse/facilities, clean and adequate for the number of folks using them. Nice hiking trails. I didn’t use the other amenities offered at the park and I missed the visitor center being open. The camp store was also closed, but I believe it’s either closed for COVID or just hasn’t opened for the season.

Nice campground with beautiful hike to waterfall!

My partner and I headed to nearby Chilhowie Campground in the Cherokee National Forest last year to try out our new teardrop camper.  We chose site 1 in the A Loop as it had shore power. The site was not level and actually had quite an incline which was slightly challenging to level on the sandy pad.   The site itself was nice and roomy.  There were some lovely trees for us to set up our Eno hammock.  The site is right next to the entrance so there was heavy traffic and noise traveling in and out of the campground. This is obviously not highly desirable as it always seems to be available during high demand weekends.   We are going back this summer after selecting another site.  

One of the most spectacular things about this campsite is the accessibility to hiking trails including the fairly easy trail to McKemy Lake and Benton Falls.  McKemy Lake has a nice sandy beach and allows non-motorized boats.  We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Benton Falls. Though it was fairly busy, people were respectful and mindful of space.

Really looking forward to go back to this treasure!

Beautiful spot

While this campground is beautiful, the gate is still closed for the season. Website says it will open mid-April, so should be available soon!

Nice State Park with a Lot to Offer

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.

Must do!

This is a huge state park!  It seems overwhelming and crowded at first.  The campgrounds are massive, but the campsites are spread out just enough to make you feel like you are in a small campground.  Do some hiking!!!!  After a short hike away from the roads and you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere.  The views are spectacular!  We were there in April where the weather was perfect! 

A+

An all around great campground!!!!!

This is a terrific campground in the Cherokee Natl Forest.   Sites have electricity.   Water is accessible to fill tank before you park a camper.  The trails were wide and clean.

Wonderful Camping

We stayed three nights in campground B and had a wonderful time exploring this park. Lots to do, not too crowded! Dog friendly! Kind and courteous staff and camp hosts. Spots were spread out just enough so we felt like we could fully enjoy our time in camp. Hiked the falls, kayaked in the lake and skipped rocks at George Hole. The scenic loop is a beautiful drive or bike ride. General store has a good stock of essentials if anything is forgotten. Overall we truly enjoyed Fall Creek Falls Camping!

Easter

Check to make sure they are open. Showed up on Easter weekend and this place was closed. So after 11/2 hr drive, we ended up camping up on the hill above the boat ramp.. Better luck next time..

Fabulous state park

This is a fabulous state park. Many campground loops - we stayed in site 69B in March 2021. All beautiful sites. We prefer campgrounds with trailheads straight from the campground and this one has both hiking trails (off campground loop C) and biking routes (40 mile route from FCFSP on Ride With GPS - Sequatchie Valley Scenic bike way). Awesome! The falls are beautiful with a steep, boulder-y climb down to the lower falls (and back up!). Campsites are nice with good spacing and trees. Bathroom and shower facilities nice and clean with good air circulation (helpful in pandemic times). We only stayed two nights but could be happy staying here a week or more. Lots to do and see! We will return.
