Great campground

We really enjoyed Milton Hill dam, very friendly people , well stocked store, easy access to swimming and fishing and full hook up sites if you want them. Easy access to my family in Knoxville Tennessee

Good family camping all ages

Good camp sites close to a dam lost of ishhing sopts ,ok bath house. Swiming area

Could be best campground if they built more bath houses.

I LOVED the campground but only gave it 2 stars because of the lousy bath house situation.

Why I loved the campground is because it's beautiful. Probably one of the best sites I've ever been on. Level, clean, concrete pads, perfect. There are tent sites right on the lake. Some of the tent campers brought their boats and parked them right next to their site.

Then you have to go to the bathroom or need to take a shower. They have 2 bath houses. One is in the area of the day use people so it's always in use. The 2nd one was 1000 steps, per fitbit, there and back from our site. When you get there, there's only one toilet and one urinal for the men and 2 toilets for the women. Only one shower in each bath house. We're talking over 60 sites total so if there are 4 people per site, that 240 people for 2 bath houses.

Convenient to Knoxville

We made a last minute trip to Melton Hill that was very conveniently located just outside of Knoxville. The campsite offers several options for camping along the water or in the woods. We stayed in the woods and the sites have little to no grass. mostly gravel, but that didn't stop us from having a great trip. Our kids enjoyed the nice beach and swim area that was located just a walk away from our site. I would highly recommend this site for those who live in Knoxville and want a short drive to a campsite. Also onsite is a campstore where you can purchase drinks, snacks fishing supplies, blow ups and other necessities. Close to the swimming area there is a covered pavillion with grills that would be perfect for a birthday party or reunion. We will definitely be back to this campground!

will return

very quiet campsite. we were close to the bath house which was kept very clean. I saw the camp host going to clean it at least once a day.. sometimes twice a day. speaking of camo hosts, they were the nicest, sweetest people. would definitely go back!! only downfall, the swimming area. wasn't a fan and didn't let the kids go in. but.. to each their own! :)


Beautiful place. A little hilly but beautiful view on lake. Large swimming area, some spots have electrical/water/sewer, others have less. Very affordable.


Most sites are nice. Close to the water and quiet.

Love this place!!!

Clean, friendly staff, beautiful view. Green.

We loved it !

We really appreciated the area. It was beautiful with changes leaves. Not too crowded.

Eclipse viewing

We stayed here during the eclipse. Nice walking trail, large RV sites, nice water area.
