Nice primitive campground with well maintained dispersed spots. No picnic tables or fire rings but plenty of space. Nice and quiet. Lots of space for RVs as well. Just make sure to check the ground before you park. Very muddy, could get stuck.
Decent little RV Park for just pulling off the road for a break. It’s well kept and has 7 spots for Water/Electric hookups, and 9 spots for regular vehicles. A few picnic tables. NO BATHROOMS, but it’s right next to a Shell gas station.
Kind of looks like an abandoned parking lot so try not to pass it, because there is not sign either. The playground/city park is behind the rv park.
Wasn’t expecting much at first, but ended up being pleasantly surprised and happy I stayed here. I can easily say this is one of my favorite campgrounds on my road trip so far. Mostly because it offers so much for free. Plenty of camp spots as well as the ability to park/camp right next to the water. (There’s no Water or Electric hookups) Also, not a lot of places selling firewood nearby. But there is a gas station called Rocky Spring Mart towards the “Cuzzin RV Park” that sells some.
There’s a large boat ramp, and the park itself is perfect for fun water activities. So bring your kayak or paddle boards! There’s even a swim area.
There are flushing toilets and 1 shower stall per bathroom with decent pressure and hot water. They are cleaned daily. (If you’re a tall person you might feel a bit exposed in the shower due to the height of the doors)
There is a park manager that keeps track of every new camper. He asks a few questions and gives you a list of the rules. He’s kind, and will gently tell you if you’re violating said rules.
Speaking of which THE PARK/CAMPGROUND IS CLOSED ON SUNDAYS.
Overall, I’ve had a fun and relaxing time here, and would definitely come again if I’m ever in Tennessee again.
Nice quiet campground where I highly recommend getting a spot by the water. A bit un-level in most spots for tent camping. Bathroom and showers are a bit old, but it’s cleaned often and the shower water is hot. Not wowed by this place but it’s close and affordable.
Pros: Free!! Close to Columbia but far enough away for a getaway. Easy to find from the road, even in the dark. Fire pits and picnic tables are there. Vault toilets and running water available. Hiking trailhead at the entrance of the campground. Camping spots are spaced out enough.
Cons: Can hear lawn-mowing and Gun shots from neighboring properties in the early morning. Still not the end of the world. Definitely fills up on the weekends.
I stayed at #3 and it was a very spacious private spot. If you have kids/dogs I recommend spot #4 it has a long strip of playroom for running around without disturbing other spaces. 2 week maximum stay.
Stayed at the first set of camping spots which were about 5/6. Fire rings and tables provided. Also a vault toilet was available. The road nearest the first camp site leads to the River Glade trailhead. I don’t recommend taking it until it gets some maintenance. It is overgrown and HIGH tick contact probability.
Did not stay near the river but I believe there are more campsites there. I recommend smaller RVs due to the 2 miles of gravel and high water areas you go through to get there.
Only got to stay for a night because of hurricane Laura, The park ranger kindly told us they were shutting it down. Otherwise, very nice free campsite. The picnic tables are beautifully made and there’s a fire pit. You get a view of the lake from the trees and at night you’re surrounded by “lightning bugs”. Which makes the experience a little enchanting.
Really nice camp spots with beautiful views! Very peaceful at night. Saw some dear and rabbits near our campsite.
Just a square patch of land, but plenty of space. You’ll hear a bit of shooting from the gun range nearby, and maybe some ATVs. But overall peaceful, and nothing beats free. No amenities whatsoever.
Also, people have been dumping old large furniture items like couches and mattresses.
Pros: Beautiful campground, easy to find, and good for first timers. Dog friendly.
Cons: $9 a day additional parking fee wasn’t mentioned in reservation. Close proximity to camp neighbors.
Overall, very nice and relaxing. Not noisy. Would recommend to friends.
