Piney Campground, Land Between the Lakes NRA, Dover, Tennessee

Date of Stay: October, 2014 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

Beautiful park but as with all, it has its pros/cons. There's some sites in Shortleaf that are rather steep and you may have some trouble backing into them-- uphill. Sites 342-345. We stayed in site 258 in Loblolly and it was spacious with perfect trees, close to bath/shower and very level. These sites are gravel. Some complained about persimmon trees at their site. And, in October, they're VERY messy! Take it SLOW over the speed bumps. They absolutely will not let anyone speed through that park. It would be nice to have at least water at every site. They have an Outpost store that sells most of the essentials you will/would need for RV'ing and some staple grocery items. AND, they're very reasonably priced along with staying open late on the weekends. Unusual for a govt. park but very convenient since the nearest store is several miles away. Most of the sites appear shaded. Excellent play ground for kids-- volleyball, softball, etc. All the restrooms/showers are new and VERY clean. McFarland Park (TVA) in Florence, AL would REALLY benefit by coming to this park and visit these RR facilities to see how it's suppose to be done. We camped at Piney Campground, Land Between the Lakes NRA in a Travel Trailer.

McFarland Park Campground, Florence, Alabama

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

Read August 2014's review of a very accurate description of the park. My review and the rating is based on the horrendous bathrooms! The men's commode seat is so bad, it is flaking. Multiple fragments of bars of soap remain in the soap dish. The wife and I refused to use their bathroom or shower. Fortunately, we had our own. If you do not have a bathroom, just know they only have one toilet and urinal in one bathhouse (men's side). The park is absolutely beautiful! But if we did not have our own RV bathroom, we would not stay at this park for that single reason. We have stayed at many COE,State and other parks and this is by far the worst bathroom facility we have witnessed in a campground to be "governement" operated and maintained. We camped at McFarland Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.
