Probably the most beautiful and peaceful state park in the country! Plenty of things to do to keep you busy here. Ampetheatre, tennis court, pool, Rhododendron Gardens, Carver's Gap, Little Doe River, Miller Farmstead, & visitor center museum; all worth checking out. Only a few things you need to look out for. Some of the spaces are short and roads are narrow. Be picky choosing a site. Also some of the sites are grossly off level. You may need 2 sets of leveling blocks! When it rains you get alot of runoff from the steep banks. We woke up and everything we had outside was covered in mud. Also you may want to make sure you have everything before you leave. With all this peacefulness comes not a big selection of stores and restaurants. Roan Mnt. has a few small markets, mom & pop restaurants, Dollar General. Elizabethton is about 20 minutes out if you need any fast food, Food City, or Walmart. I know I had some setbacks here, but I will definitely be coming back. Multiple times. Just take plenty of time to do research on this one.
Very clean campground right on the river with a great view of Douglas Dam. Diverse population of bird species for birdwatchers. Very laid back attitude here. No parties or loud music. Only reason it didn't get 5 stars is there was a dead duck hanging from the power lines in front of our site. He was hooked to a fishing line. Kind of an eyesore.
