Amazing primitive sites!

We love the primitive sites at Nathan Bedford Forest! Each site is along the River banks, so you get the best views! Fire pits and picnic tables included. The bathhouse is very old though and does not have a shower. That is the only reason I couldn’t give this one 5 stars!

Best place I’ve been on the water

Great place for backcountry though you can drive right to the spot. The gravel road back can be rough especially right after a big rain but you can avoid most of the holes. The site is right on the water with a gravel opening beside it. We were able to setup 4 tents with lots of room to spare. We…

We camped for one night and arrived late with no one on duty to take payment so we used the honor system drop box. Stunning views of lake and awesome sunset. Left in the early morning to a bunch of deer everywhere.

Remote camping

Ginger Bay is very remote but as always, remote is totally worth it. I don’t recommend a pull behind trailer as the road is so rough you wont get a camper up it. The sites are just a clearing in the trees so there is no place to park a rig. Campsites are right on the lake and no cell access. The…

Well kept

The tent sites were well kept. They are gravel pads with a grill and fire ring. They are right on the water with easy access to put in a kayak. And close to a boat ramp if bringing a boat. It’s shaded. The bath house is a bit of a walk and they have restrooms only, no showers.

Very peaceful and gorgeous view with boat ramp. The drive in is pretty rough even with us being in a jeep though.

Nice and peaceful

I often camped here when I wanted something mildly primitive but still somewhat accessible not completely away from all people. They have many sites to choose from that are near the waters edge or further away. There is always a trailer there for the host of the area. I have never seen this place…

Truly Unfortunate Name

Would love for the park to be renamed, because it’s beauty far exceeds its namesake. The lakefront sites are really cool and the facilities are pretty decent! Bit of a steep hill to access some of the sites. And some are built on wooden decks.

Beautiful lakeside view

We enjoyed our visit and the wonderful view, but if we return, we will get a site further from the boat access ramp. There are 2 ramps, but everyone wants to use the one right in the middle of the site at zero dark thirty.

standard state park campground, fine place to camp

We arrived late at this campsite and left early, so I didn't get a chance to see much of the state park (although the hiking trails looked good), but the campsite itself and amenities were great. We were going to camp at site 9, but ended up camped at Site 14, which was on a loop trail, so a little…

Short visit

Lovely little campground, but beautiful & serene. Lots of great trails to hike. A good place for a Civil War history buff.

Campsite Review

This campsite was a very peaceful place to stay. There were campsites close to the water’s edge, away from the water and with a view, and then places tucked away with complete shade in the woods. There aren’t any showers here, but the grounds do supply drinking water and…

Taylor Bay - Land Between the Lakes

Off the beaten path in Land Between the Lakes (LBL), Taylor Bay is backcountry camping at its best. Off of the Trace, directional signs are well placed ensuring your route down Forrest Service Road 136 goes with out problems (fully paved through LBL to the camp sites). No electricity or water,…

  • Well marked directional signs lead to Taylor Bay.  All roads are paved.
