Nice State Park Campground. Easy access, one mile off I-75. Sites were fairly close but still a nice experience. Along the lake. Clean bathrooms, showers, elec hook ups, water hook ups and dump station available and all working well. We enjoyed it as a quick stop. Wish we had time to do some of the hiking nearby.
$25 what a deal! Lots of amenities and lake water camping available. Will def be back
Excellent little park about 45mins north of Knoxville. Campsites are well maintained as is the rest of the park. Rangers are super cool and helpful. Only downside is not being able to swim in Cove lake. I mean you can, but I certainly wouldn't. If you want to swim just drive 15mins to Norris lake. I would camp here again happily.
Great location just off I75, close to easy shopping (Walmart), Urgent Care facility just minutes away, nice BBQ place right in the park, local eatery’s just up the way (less than 2 miles). Hospital less than 5 miles away. A few locals do daily walks thru the campground and are very friendly people. Bathrooms are clean, campground has lots of shaded areas, lake for fishing, boats and canoe rental (may be seasonal). Playgrounds for kids, large swimming pool (also seasonal) Very nice rangers. Hiking also near by, just ask the rangers. Kenneth
this campground is nice and wooded which I love. Our site did not have shade trees but most did. Sites are gravel and ours was pretty level. There were trees behind site that we were able to put our hammocks in that wasn’t nice. The sites were pretty big too which a fantastic amount of room to throw ball and play! Bath houses were clean but typical state park bath houses. We were right across from one that the playground was near which wasn’t nice. We were told there were some great trails to hike but we didn’t venture towards them because hiking with a 6 month old is not our idea of fun! Lol there’s is a massive pool but we had to pay to get into it and had to drive to it. That was a bummer. The campground was beautiful and nice to simply walk around. We would go back.
We absolutely love this place! It is our children’s favorite campground!
The history of the name of this rock is really strange…who knew bee keepers could be so violent?? The hike up the Bee is worth it and good for the little ones, lots of little rock formations to explore and only about a mile or two long. There were a few other trails too. The campsites are all along or close to the water among the trees, so very lovely and rather private. Toilets are only pit style but there’s water spigots. Overall it’s a simple site that feels quaint, natural, and part of Appalachia history that makes a good overnight as you explore the area.
This is right of freeway 75 north of Knoxville and beats staying in a motel on a road trip. This is a nice green campground but only a very few sites are close to the water. The campsites are a little small, close, and open with a playground within earshot of many of the sites. People were boating and swimming, but we just took a walk along the lovely (easy) trail along the lake. Lovely rolling hills.
The campground hosts are good. The campground is in a good location. Would have veen better if bathrooms were cleaned and stocked better.
