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 The road signs are out of date with the additions to the park and the map is tiny but we managed to figure it out.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

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

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

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

We did NOT stay here. However, we needed someplace to dump our tanks and this was recommended. The park is actually very reasonable for overnighters or short timers. It is next to a RR track, but not sure how busy the line is. Sites appear reasonable and it is an honor system for pay:$15 for pull through, $12 for back in. There were sites also available for pop-top campers on a grassy site. Dump fee was $10. If traveling through the area or in the area for a bit on business, this may well be better than a WalMart or other parking lot. Folks I talked with in the park were friendly and said it was a great spot to stay. Easy drive to WalMart and other stores. - Too-wow

This is a parking lot. It has electricity, water, sewer & cable. It is OK, but dont expect more. It has no office (someone comes by once a day to collect the rent), no security, no restrooms or showers. We had no problem with this and would stay there again. Roads are gravel, sites are gravel, level and will accommodate big rigs. - Travelin Rose

Large, family friendly park with 71 back in 30/50 amp FHU sites, 6 pull through 30/50 amp FHU sites, 7 back in 30/50 amp W/E only sites, 43 tent sites with 30 amp and water, and 2 deluxe cabins. All RV sites had cable. Sites vary widely in length, levelness and lot spacing. Refer to the campground map before booking, as sites are marked "S" for 25 feet and under, "L" for 36 feet and over. Unmarked sites are between 26 and 35 feet. We uploaded many photos of different campsites to assist other campers when booking. Most sites have a concrete pad for your RV and asphalt for your tow vehicle. Interior roads are narrow and winding, mostly paved with some gravel areas, but are in rough shape. Getting in/out of sites can be challenging when the park is full. Some sites have trees that can interfere with slides and awnings. We stayed in site A19, a very level back in space with roomy outdoor sitting area and no obstacles to worry about. Main bathroom/shower area was attractive and clean, and consisted of two toilets and four showers per gender. Secondary bathrooms located in the laundry area. Laundry area had two washers (both out of order) and two dryers (one out of order) with no ETA on repairs. Media room with books and DVDs next to the laundry area. Office sells t-shirts, chips, ice and ice cream. Other amenities include a swimming pool (open Memorial Day through September), playground, volleyball court, meeting room and large pavilion. Gated entry and exit. Utilities worked well but are placed at the rear of the site. Water connection is shared with your neighbor, but we didn't have any problems with pressure. Verizon service was excellent. Lots of hiking/biking trails throughout the park, and of course, the falls are beautiful! Park has signs posted to lock up bicycles so they must have had theft issues in the past. Staff were friendly and helpful. The campground is next door to the Noccalula Falls park, but you have to pay a separate fee to enter (it has a train and petting zoo in it as well). Convenience store across the street and Walmart was a few miles away. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would return. - RVIN 24-7

First, let me start with the positives. The staff was very friendly. Even with a major tractor show going on this weekend, the park was clean. All the utilities worked well, including the wifi. There are several hiking trails, and the Noccalula Falls Park (about 1/2 mile walk) is very nice and worth spending an afternoon - or more. Now the down side. Most (the majority - there are a few exceptions) are very close together. I could not fully extend my main awning without literally hitting the RV in the site next to me. The utilities are all at the rear of the sites, and that can mean needing to run extra water and sewer hoses to reach. The water outlet is for two sites. If you are showering and the other RV turns on the water, you will know it. Even so, water pressure was good - almost too good. I had to keep my pressure regulator on the water hose to keep the hose from leaking around the connections. The roads were poorly maintained, which made staying under the posted 5 MPH speed limit no problem; you wouldn't even want to drive faster than that. There were several 40 foot motorhomes in the park when I was there, so it can be done. But overall, this park was designed for a time when RVs were much smaller and more compact. Still, it is a good base for exploring the Gadsden area. - MFTDoc

We stayed here Sept.30 in site #A-6. Our 30'10" FW fit nicely on the concrete pad. Backing in was somewhat of a challenge since one side of the pad was about 6" above ground. The cable service was good but the Wi-Fi was somewhat spotty. The falls are quite pretty and just a short walk from the campground. Our BIGGEST issue with this campground was ants. We had an invasion into our FW ... they climbed up the water line. I didn't notice until the next morning that several sites near us had ant poison sprinkled on the concrete pad. If you camp here, make sure you take precautionary measures to keep the little buggers at bay. - Burt Bennett

This is a beautiful and secluded state park with lots of mature trees and a stream that runs behind a number of the sites. The sites were level and gravel, except for a few paved pull-through sites. The pull-through sites have sewer hookups, but the back-in sites did not. We were able to use one of the pull-through sites to dump our tanks. There are many tent sites available in the campground and some additional primitive sites within the park. The bathrooms were clean. There is a small playground and a covered picnic area. There are lots of places to walk with a dog. We were unable to get cell phone reception with AT&T or Verizon, but that was OK because we were there to enjoy the surroundings. The biggest negative was that the trails were overgrown so thickly with poison ivy that we couldn't use them, but there is a dirt road that runs along the stream that made for a great walk. It was very quiet and the sound of the stream was wonderful. - Anne Williams

Great small park. Good hiking trails and friendly and helpful staff. Quiet, dark, secluded. Watch that downhill to the park. Also has a nearby boat launch down at the lake. - Solo Nutiket

This is a nice park to stay while hiking and enjoying the outdoors. The area is beautiful. It is quite remote so nearby places to buy supplies or to eat out are not available. The road to the park is steep and twisty. Larger rigs could have trouble with the road. - Dennis Bham
