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 The road signs are out of date with the additions to the park and the map is tiny but we managed to figure it out.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

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

Upon check-in the park host was friendly and informative. Our lot #27 was nice and shaded, but not angled like the graphic shows when selecting a site. The site next to us #26, angles into it or #27 angles into #26. Some sewer connections on other lots were in odd locations. Sites are close together. We totally loved the ability to go out and hit all the trails right from our door. We used the pool a couple times. Thought it was a bit small for the number of sites. The laundry and restroom facilities appeared clean. - DJPellegrino

Wanted to give this park a 10 but sites are way too close together. There were a lot of activities going on while we were there so the park was full for the weekend. Our site was a buddy site, with the back of the trailer next door just inches from our awnings. We basically had no sitting area outside our door. The picnic table and fire ring were at the back of the site. All the sites in this row had the same setup, so there was no privacy while sitting out by your fire. There is plenty to do here if you have kids and our grandson enjoyed the pool, mini golf, train, petting zoo and a hike down into the canyon. The laundry had two washers and two dryers, although one dryer was broken during our stay. Wifi did not work for us at all. AT&T was sporadic, but our Verizon jetpack worked great. Restrooms were very clean and looked to have been recently remodeled. We enjoyed our stay but not sure we'll come back unless we can get one of two or three sites that weren't quite as close to the neighbors. - LZee11

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

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
