Nice campground. No hook ups available at all. Sites are not really laid out, just park where you want for the most part. We parked right on the creek and with the mountains on both sides of you it is a beautiful place. Bike riding on the Chief Ladiga Trail and hiking on the Pinhoti tail or maybe a kayak or canoe ride down the creek. Very nice and super dark at night. Great star gazing! Lots of church groups and boy scouts. We will go back and hookups are in the future although I'm not sure that would really be a good thing. - Bird-Freak

This not yet completed park is located in a beautiful valley between Terrapin Creek and the Chief Ladiga Trail (Rail to Trail, Anniston, Al to Atlanta, GA. and has spectacular views. It is very private, but easily accessible by any size rig. Bath houses and office are complete and park is generally laid out. Utilities will be in by Spring 2011. Terrapin Creek, Chief Ladiga Trail and the Pinhoti trail are accessible from the park property. We biked the Chief Ladiga to the AL/GA state line where it connects with the Silver Comet Trail that leads on through GA to the outskirts of Atlanta. The campground is open for dry camping and will remain available during construction. Easily the most beautiful campsite we have ever seen. Bill is very accommodating. It is 7 miles to Piedmont, AL, where most anything you need is available. Don't miss this one. - houstown

About 10 miles into the wilderness on paved (some bumpy) roads. Watch your GPS. Large campsites, paved, small gravel elsewhere (no mud or dirt under foot). Extremely clean restrooms and showers, hiking trails, small beach within walking distance of campsites, privacy throughout, quiet, relaxing. - Jmbicycle

Truly a "get away from it all" campground on a small impounded lake in a thick and tall oak/maple/hickory/pine forest. First come/serve. Fills up by Thursday night. National Forest website says "lightly" used. Incorrect, it's quite popular. Two loops, hilly, but the sites are level. All paved roads. Paved pads for RVs, surrounded by large graveled picnic/tent/play areas. Electric and water at each site. Just one pull through site. No campsite is "lake view" when trees are in leaf. Bath houses spotless. Well managed campground. Swimming area on lake, very limited playground for young kids. Lots of hiking trails, and lots of chiggers, too. OTA TV limited only to PBS. No cell phone service for Verizon. Had to drive to dump station (barely received), or five miles back towards Edwardsville for strong service. Nothing nearby. Bring everything you need. Occupants, mostly from Alabama or Georgia, primarily fishing, kayaking, or just sitting around. Host was stunned that we came from another state, wondered how we found the park (eh, uh, the NFS website for starters???). Otherwise, little to do other than relax. - The Happy Traveler

Have stayed here many times. Well maintained, has clean grounds and facilities. There are even facilities for equine camping! Lots of maintained trails. Very quiet. Shaded by mature trees. Access to boat ramp. Well patrolled, and clearly well cared for. Very family friendly. - Birdies

We have stayed here before enroute from Atlanta/North. As mentioned - about 45 minutes from Atlanta and a few minutes off I20. East to get to and exit. Park has a lot of units that look full time. A few spaces in the back will work for 75 feet rigs/tows and seem to be where overnighters stay. Utilities are in the Front of the space - bring extensions. Not sure who laid this out but it is bizarre. The park could be pretty - there is a nice river that runs thru the back and there are lush trees. Check in was easy - exit easy. Not a resort but a very acceptable overnight stay that does not pretend to be what it is not. - Zoey and Reba

We stayed here to escape hurricane Michael as it tore through Florida and So. Georgia. It was an emergency decision to stay here but the place is nice, quiet and clean. The grass and ground are well cared for, no trash or debris around. Our site was gravel and reasonably level an nearly 100 ft long. The spaces are fairly close together. Close enough that I would not extend an awning all the way. We are in a 45' motor home. Most of the sites are occupied by long term construction workers. The park is outside town in a rural counrty area and Cane Creek flows right next to the park and could be a concern during heavy rain. - Vstarrider1946

This park is off I20- and about 45 minutes west of Atlanta metro. It was a great park for a stop over. The new owners are very involved in upgrading the park. The setting is actually very pretty - creek runs thru the rear of the park and the overall facility is very attractive. Only a few permanent campers and not a problem. I am 45 feet long with a 20 foot trailer and I had a choice of several spaces that were perfect. Other comments about tree limbs - I am 13.5 feet tall and had no issues. New owners took care of that issue. I would definitely stop by again if I was in the area. The owner walked me to my space to make sure that I would fit. - Zoey and Reba

This campround has all grass sites and is very small, maybe 50 sites, but the park has a lot to offer, even for the big rigs like my 40 ft DP. They have limited 50 amps and no sewer only water. There are several site right on the water with fishing piers. They have 1 restroom with showers. They have a very nice large pool. I found it very peaceful, we stayed in late October. - Tom222

Stayed here for three nights after Memorial Day. Most of the campers are weekenders so if you come during the week, it's not too busy. Weekends are busy and locals have reserved most of the waterfront and better sites. Difficult for a big rig to get in and park due to trees and tight turns. Many rules regarding visitors and use of facilities. On the plus side, the sites are good sized, have shade, and there is access to a pool and piers on the lake. Very poor antenna TV reception. All sites are gravel or grass so water puddles if it rains. We used our AT&T phone hotspot for internet and it worked fine. - threehendersons

Very scenic. Planned on an overnight, but stayed for three days. Pool was about 25x70. Shade was abundant. Bathrooms/showers are dated but clean. Will stay again. Price was the Passport America price. Many folks stay here on weekends and leave their rigs during the week. - hmthomas1

This was our second visit to Chestnut Bay. The RV park has been expanded and is well laid out. The staff at Chestnut Bay continue to be friendly and helpful. The RV park is within walking distance of the water park, but a bit of a hike to the lakefront activities. Rental golf carts are available for those who don't like the walk to the lake. Jet skies and pontoon boats are available for rent. We rented both and had a blast! It is my understanding that in 2020 the zip line will be discontinued. I recommend Chestnut Bay and will likely return. - Joe-n-Doe

This place is amazing. Very new and absolutely amazing. There is a water park in the resort which is small, but new for a $20 per person fee. They are adding onto it for 2020. Includes put put and zip lining. The resort also has a lake with toys, an onsite beach bar and grill and a golf cart taxi on weekends plus lots of activities. A beautiful resort that reminded me a bit of watercolors down in Destin. Pro tip, bring a golf cart or call ahead to reserve one. Internet/Wifi was free, strong and unlimited. The landscaping at the park was also incredible, leading to some enjoyable walks! The sites are in full sun, so be prepared. - Mpala

We stayed two nights in a 40 foot fifth wheel. We would stay again and stay longer. This is a great park in a beautiful location with fantastic staff. I don't give away ratings of 10 and this place deserves that and more. The park includes homes and campsites on a beautiful lake formed by a damn that feeds the Cousa River. There is a beautiful water park, nice places to walk, a beach on the lake, and a water sports rental service for boats etc. They are adding camp sites so check back for other options. I wasn't thrilled with full sun pull-thru but the site was very nice. We like shade. Site 301 would have been even better. It is a bit of a drive to get here and the GPS will take you to resort rather than the campground. The campground sign is a small white sign on the right side of the road before you reach the resort destination. You do NOT want to attempt to enter the resort and it is no fun if you miss the campground entrance. So, call ahead and make sure you look for sign on the right. Roads are good but tight. - Moe and Flo are on the go

Easy on and off from the highway, great stop for the last leg of our trip home. Pull thru level gravel site with full hookup. The best part of the park is the Damn Yankee Restaurant! Good service and terrific food!!! Great chicken wings to start than excellent fresh fish and ribeye, cooked perfectly. I would highly recommend for that alone. We travelled here in a 38' Motorhome with a toad. - CarenCharlie112

We found this place to be very nice for an overnight stay. The sites were gravel and level with easy access on the pull through sites. We have a 41 foot coach and were pulling a toad. All sites have a concrete pad for your patio. WiFi was excellent as we stayed in one of the back lots. Had full hookups but we only used electricity. The panel breaker did trip even though I was not drawing full 50 amps and voltage stayed around 118 to 121 volts. I just manually controlled the ACs and all was good. You check in at the Damn Yankees Bar & Restaurant, and we ate there, the service and food were excellent. - Land of Nor

This park has the potential to be a great park. Although the camping amenities leave something to be desired, we had a great time enjoying the rocks. We dry camped in the park. Answering machine and email only. Camping is first come first serve. The road signs are out of date with the additions to the park and the map is tiny but we managed to figure it out. Our site was not terribly level - we used all of our leveling blocks and we were still not quite level. They have a cute playground that is supposed to be usable in a few more weeks & many more improvements to come. The fresh water spigot is located on the way out, but they may be making the roads 2 way so that you can fill up your water on the way in. The campground rules say owners must clean up their pets waste, but after several trailers full of horses came through there was horse waste everywhere.
As of right now they have a lot of improvements to make (and much is in progress). In order of priority, these were the issues I saw.
1. The biggest issue: no sanitary place to wash your dishes. It would be fantastic if they added a big outdoor sink that gives you room to wash those pots and pans. One of the staff members actually told some people to wash their dishes at the dump station!
2. Nowhere to place your toiletries while using the sink and the sink was dirty. No way of cleaning before or after yourself it since there was no soap or paper towels.
3. No soap. This is a necessary item to keep people healthy.
4. Not enough sinks - only one in the ladies'. Most of time I just need to brush, wash face, put contacts in/out.
5. Overflowing trash - the main trash can and bathroom cans were not emptied until late Sunday morning when they were all overflowing.
6. Shower water scalding hot - sink and showers are pushbutton and the temperatures are not adjustable.
7. Firewood - expensive. The bundles are very small - it takes at least 2 bundles for one fire and they were $6 each.
Bring your own local firewood. Bring handsoap and something to wash your dishes in. - SCClimberGirl

Owner guided us into our spot which was long enough we did not need to unhook. Good overnight stop, close to the interstate. It makes a good place to stop going East for our run through Atlanta tomorrow. Spots are level. Ours was concrete but most are gravel. Personnel service by the owner was a plus. The office and restrooms are in a new building. - TexasFullers

Overnight stay, Easy in and out from I-20. Owner was really friendly. Easy pull thru. No cable and over the air TV had limited stations. Would stay again overnight. New utilities as the campground is fairly new. - Beggco

This was our third time to camp overnight at Gadsden. Very nice campground with lots of amenities. Very nice pool, gated park with access by card at gate. Park is located by river and lake. We were in a pull thru site that seems to be reserved for overnighters. It took three phone calls to get someone to take our reservation, then when we arrived it could not be found. Fortunately they still had a spot open for us. - Texas E-S

A beautiful park. We were there during the week, so the place was not crowded - and they gave us a choice of sites. The staff was terrific, from a warm southern welcome at the front desk to the escort driver, everybody was very nice. Beautifully landscaped, lots of walking trails, including a path around the lake. Great lake view with a terrific breeze. The town is nice, with convenient gas, food and grocery. The only downside - if it is one - is the large gaggle of geese that comes visiting your site in the evening. And geese being geese, they don't clean up after themselves. The campground does try to manage the geese by following them around with an ATV - that must be a great job for a work camper! - dbfrv3

Nice spot on the river for an overnight stay or a destination place for families. Nice pool and boating and fishing on the river. Very quiet. A few miles from I-59 on the I-759 spur but easy access. Hard packed gravel sites and pads. Good satellite and verizon service. - literod
