We've stayed at Chestnut Bay 3 times this year, and I'm sure we will be back again next year. This is a true "resort" that is comprised mostly of high end lake front homes. The RV portion of the resort is located up above the houses but still has nice views of the lake. Positives: There are two pools in the resort, and one is especially geared towards kids of all ages and includes a water slide. There is also a Godfather's Pizza attached to the this pool which makes it nice to enjoy lunch and let the kids continue to play. There is a beach section with a 150ft water slide that dumps you out in to the lake which is great for all ages. There are tennis courts, beach volleyball, playground, an outdoor theater that they play a movie at on Saturday evenings, and tons of activities or the kids during the day. My kids really like riding on the golf carts with the summer help! Negatives: For such a nice resort, there are a couple of things that I think they could improve on. One is water pressure. I've never experienced such low water pressure at any other park or resort, and the only thing we have been told by management is that it is dependent on the usage level by the rental homes. The other concern is the cable reception. Every spot we have parked in, and every other camper we have talked to has confirmed that the cable reception is bad at best. We actually do better using our antenna and pulling in local channels. Obviously, these items do not prevent us from coming back, but for $45/night, they could be improved. All in all, it's a great resort for families, and they do a lot to keep the kids entertained. We will certainly continue to be a regular at Chestnut Bay during the "peak" season. Please note that during their "off peak" season, there are no scheduled events (i.e. movie, street party, karaoke, etc..) due to the fact that they do not have their college help available. - bddo

Back at Chesnut Bay for Memorial Day weekend. EXCELLENT..only slight negative is cable is very spotty. We pulled out the sat dish and were fine. Small 20 site park in a multimillion dollar resort. Summer scheduled activities for out 5 year old and nightly activities, karaoke, street party, outdoor PG13 movie and free bingo. This is truly a hidden gem that we will return to over and over. I would say this is a destination RV park rather than an overnight stop. VERY family oriented. - Jerry - Ride To Be Free

This is a fantastic campground. The only reason I don't give it a 10 is because of the sites. The particular site that we had was very difficult to get into due to tight space and backing up a hill to get it in place. Also, this particular site and a few around ours are very narrow so you don't have a lot of room between the campers. However, there are some sites that have plenty of room. As far as amenities (outdoor theater, volleyball, basketball, swimming, canoes, paddle boats, a big waterslide, beach area, activities for the kids, etc.) they are very good and the kids had a blast. We will visit this CG again but will pick a better site. Staff was extremely courteous and golf carts ride around to pick you up. - Swampman

Site 16 and 17 are not good for long travel trailers. The incline is too steep and there are not enough blocks in the world to level the units. This would be a good site for a tent or smaller tt. Units over 30 ft, beware. Inpact area is very small and fire ring is very close to unit. - KLEGRAND

Definitely follow the driving instructions listed on the website and do not let your GPS bring you to the park. Even so, the park is not exactly convenient to the Interstate; however, it is a better RV park than run-of-the-mill and that should weigh in your decision. As others have commented, full complement of hook-ups, 45 lbs. water pressure at site #52, could not get any Wi-Fi there and despite the asphalt parking pad, my automatic leveler lifted a side wheel slightly off the ground in order to achieve neutrality. Park is gated at night (with entrance key pad), with ample space between camp sites and plenty of trees. Drainage is excellent in the wet winter months. Try to arrive during daylight hours, as this park is in the boonies with narrow roads and no lighting until you actually arrive at the park. Diesel is available only 3 miles down the road. The restaurant has excellent fare, friendly service and reasonable prices. I enjoyed country fried chicken and my wife went for the 12 fried shrimp, all for $38.00. Salad bar was nice and fresh. All-in-all this is a peaceful, quiet and wooded campground with excellent facilities. We stayed one night while on the road to elsewhere. - TMN-15

Outstanding RV park in a spectacular area. You just can't say enough on how well Alabama manages and develops their state parks. They are a model for the rest of the states. This park is simply great. I only have one gripe that kept us from rating it higher and that has to do with SOME of the site engineering and design. About 1/3 to 1/2 the sites do not have level sites. We were on a site we had thought was level based on web site pics only to find it was severely slopped. Obviously they had to fight topography in the design and development and the problem may not be as bad for trailers as for motor-homes. Trailers can tongue level but with our motorhome jacks we could not level. It was so bad we had to switch sites and we really strained out jack system to the point it would not retract from the boards underneath them. All that said it is a grand place with a wonderful staff and we will return! (just being careful of which site we choose) - americanrascal

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

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 park is nice but still under construction. Our site was tight but accessable. The site needed more stable ground under the motorhome since the jacks sunk about a foot even after using several blocks. The owner we met was very nice and answered all of our questions about the area. The roads are tight for a bigger rig (38 feet and toad) but we managed. This park will be very nice once the construction is complete. - RJ56

Tough park for big rigs. This is a self service park, so you find a spot and leave your payment. Even if you have a reservation, it is still first come first serve. For bigger rigs there are limited spots that are either long/wide enough or level enough. Most of the larger/better spots are taken by permanents. Our site had 5" of slide slope. The roads are gravel but right now have a lot of water runoff damage and they are steep. I would not recommend taking a 30k+ pound rig through the park during or directly after rain as the roads are steep and in need of gravel/grading. Nice setting for a park though and utilities worked well. - sheltieRV

The nightly rate reflects a month plus electric for 2 weeks. I intended on only staying one week but added another week then decided on the month! Owners were very nice! Park is no frills but clean and friendly. Everything is on the honor system: self check-in, purchasing firewood and ice. Bathhouse was clean with great water pressure and hot water. Some steep roads....larger Class A rigs could have a problem but there are several sites right by the office that would suit them. Lots to do in the area. - RVingMe

As stated new ownership and I was greeted by one of the owners and met his wife later. Nice park and easy to find off of US 59. At time we came in, it was a pick your own spot and once the owner saw our dog, shared where dog could walk as well as an open area if we wanted to toss a ball, etc. Says they have 15 acres. We parked near the open area. Sites are not huge however decent space between units for awnings, slides, etc. Plenty of room to stay attached and I noted similar with larger 5th wheels as well. We had not been in area so the owner provided us a book for if and when we come back...looks like would be a good location to explore that part of Alabama, Georgia, and even Tennessee. Many services nearby. We stayed in our Class C. Definitely would stay again. - ownedafew

This park is under new ownership. The normal marginal WiFi has been improved with additional antennas. Quality is as usual depend on location. Oddly we got a better upload speed, 4.6 Mbps than download speed, 3.9 Mbps. - BobatRetama

Our 2nd time to visit, this time it's under new ownership. Easy access from I-59, eating places close. All pull-thrus, not big sites, but enough for Overnighter. Nothing fancy, but quiet and safe, level sites. - Stephi

Terrible campground, way out in the woods. The sites are too close (we had our neighbor's septic pipe right at the foot of our steps). Our hookups were in our neighbor's site. When pulling in, I had to remove glass and trash from the site to keep from running it over. The fire ring was filled with household garbage (banana peels, empty cans, paper, and who knows what). But the creek was nice.
I'd find another campground if concerned with the trash and close quarters. If you are looking for a nice creek to float or paddle down, and don't care about a trashy site, this may be your place. - glenstmary

The campsite was fairly spacious. Plenty of room for the tow vehicle and extra space for moving around. The park needs some fixing up...more gravel throughout the park and lots of pot holes need to be fixed. The area had plenty of rain of the past week or two, so the lack of gravel created some muddy spots at the sites. Wifi was not consistent. This campground does not have a pool, playground, or cable (and I couldn't receive any "air" channels), so our grandkids were very bored. Of course, I knew these things when I made our reservation. Still, there is plenty of open area for a pool and playground to be added. They do have a driving range; however, I didn't see anyone use it during the 3 days we were there. Seems to be many full-timers who live there. - jconnally

The site was level and easy to navigate. We had a great view of the creek just feet from the campsite. I did notice quite a number of long-term guest. We used the driving range and had a lot of fun. The town of Cave Spring is only about 2 miles away. I would recommend you bring an empty water jug and fill it at the natural spring in the park downtown. The wifi worked pretty good. I would stay here again but I would try to stay closer to the rear of the campground so I would not hear the cars on the main road. - walterwegozz

The park a nice park with beautiful trees and seemed to be well maintained. Some of the campsites had pole barn concrete structures over the large picnic tables. This was very nice for eating especially during rainy weather. My 34ft fifth wheel barely fit on the campsite length wise but there was plenty of parking for my truck. The navigation for the single dump station was tight but maneuverable. - walterwegozz

Beautiful, quiet campground. The staff was very nice and helpful. They gave us a great shady spot right on the river. We were able to hike, fish, have dinner in Rome and take in a Rome Braves game. We are planning to go back soon! - Offcourse

We stopped here for a night. No problem getting a nice site with a view of the river. Staff was very friendly and helpful and park was obviously well-maintained. A great spot for fishermen, the park has a boat ramp. A hiking trail wends along the river. - WxToad

We stayed for four nights in April with our family. It was Spring Break for the local districts so full. Bucolic small campground and park. The host went above and beyond in cleaning and taking care of the campground, which has only 20 or so spots. Bathhouse was older but well-cleaned and appointed, along with general cleanliness all around, while not being too nosy. The approach to the campground from the local highways is on small country roads, and the hill at the campground entrance itself is not for the faint of heart. The roads are doable, although not spacious, but we saw rigs of all shapes and sizes. Nice trails leaving from CG to the lakes, as well as opportunities for longer hiking loops and nice picnic facilities. Fishing is apparently very good. Groceries are about fifteen away. Verizon service fine for data. We typically like to get get campsites near playgrounds for our kids; site 21 which we stayed at has the playground directly in front of it. This was a blessing or a curse depending on the age and character of the other kids on the playground, but a heads up for other families. - Milesdowntheroad

Ok for passing thru. The park is well maintained. But hard navigating the tiny roads and turnarounds required to check in. Camphost seemed like we bothered her "lunch time" when we asked for directions. Been to much nicer State Parks before, and will check this one off my list. - Muffin70043
