I've grown up going to Montgomery Bell State Park and have been camping there for 23 years. The campground has water and electric hookups, space for RVs, and bathrooms with showers.
The campground is adjacent to a creek and a baseball diamond. In addition to these features, the park offers a lake for boating as well as a roped off swimming area and man-made beach. Next to the lake is the park lodge which includes a restaurant, meeting rooms, and a swimming pool. The lake also has a picnic pavilion with restrooms.
The park was built on an historic home site so there is an old chapel (which still has services) and an old log home as well as a small family cemetery. There are also a number of hiking trails, a suspension bridge, and very nice, modern cabins available to rent.
Clean and well kept campground. Sites are decent size but not very secluded. Bathrooms, including showers were clean. Draw to this campground would certainly be the state park. My wife ran a tri-athalon on a Sat so we stayed Fri and Sat. Great places to hike, bike and fish!
The park is amazing! The campground is ok, the spaces are good sized with plenty of space between, If tent camping, I would try to get one along the wooded sides, you’ll have more privacy that way. We stayed on site 99, across from a small creek, but right in the middle of the campground. The bathrooms are just ok, there’s no changing room in the shower stalls, so be prepared.
Beautiful park. Lots of hiking trails. Lakes, fishing, golf course, villas, conference center with nice restaurant that has both buffet and menu items. Biking is doable in the campground area and over to the chapel. Biking to the lake, I don't recommend. Road has a lot of large hills and no bike lane on narrow road. Bathhouses very nice and clean. Most campsites gravel, spacious and level. Sites 71 and others nearby steep uphill grade. Firepit and table. Variety of primitive, electric w/ water and some FHU. Lots of trees. Small camp store with wood.
this place was the most beautiful place especially in the fall. there park staff was great and super helpful!
This park is great for family activity, and has nearly 20 miles of trails. All trails are marked very well and the park provides maps in the information office. It wasn’t too crowded when we went, but we did go early on a weekday.
Picnic tables, trash cans and grills are available at campsites. There are over 100 campsites available with a variety of electric, water, and sewer accommodations. They do get picky on how many people/tents are at each site so keep this in mind and review their rules on the website.
Great place for a pit stop and the greenery is beautiful. Its always refreshing to get away and this park is safe and quiet.
Enjoyed biking in this fairly level campground. Has sites with sewer hook up, cable, and of course water. Great State Park! Enjoyed visiting the birthplace of Cumberland Presbyterian church.
The state park is absolutely gorgeous. We chose to stay in the tent only camping sites. They are spread out far enough that you don't feel like you are in one another space. However, they are all together in the center of the RV camping loop. They are not quiet as secluded and quiet as we would have liked. The facilities were maintained and the staff was extremely helpful .
Campsites were fairly close to each other. Our campsite backed up to a creek and did not have anyone to one side. During the day, kids would wonder through the creek behind our campsite so if you’re looking for privacy, the Montgomery Bell State Park campgrounds is not the place. However, campsite 100 has the most privacy.
