Stayed for two one night stays in March (Going to and from FMCA event). I echo the previous review about very friendly folks. Had a decent meal on Sat night. Made a $10 donation. Hard to beat the price considering Electric & Water is available and the facilities at the Lodge.
Do not follow your GPS. Memorial Drive is closed to through traffic due to Hospital expansion. Get to the intersection of N Thornton Ave and Memorial drive then turn on Memorial to Elkwood drive. RV Parking is sharp Left before top of hill. - Tireman9

Stayed one night on our way through. Basically a gravel parking lot. As said previously it was weedy. There are 6 sites. 5 30 amp and one 50/30. One site had a huge hole/depression in it. 2 sites were taken by members storing their rvs. We told them about the hole at the lodge and they are going to look at it. Water and power are padlocked. Bartender has the keys. Can't beat the value. The entry/exit is a hard left in. Much easier to go up to the parking lot and turn around. Same when you leave. Everyone at the lodge was very friendly. It is a smoking lodge though. - Patricia57

We stayed here one night while traveling through the area. The power pedestals and water spigots are padlocked. You must obtain a key from the lodge bar. The RV parking area was very unkempt - it had 12" weeds throughout the camping area. The very first site on the right as you enter the RV parking area has 50 amp service, the other three have 30 amp. There was an empty motorhome being stored in one of the 30 amp sites when we were there. The lodge has a very nice pool, but we didn't take advantage of it. The campsites were very secluded and quiet, with the exception of a distant train horn every now and then, but we did not find it disturbing. The driveway apron entering/leaving the RV area can be a challenge - take it very slow. - craigtaz

Next to I-75, so if placed in monthly rental section, traffic noise is terrible. Didn't sleep at all due to very busy interstate noise all night. Sites gravel. Not level. Did not use facilities so can't comment on those. No longer a Good Sam campground. Very convenient to restaurants and Chickamauga battlefield. Many apparently long term guests but that was not a problem for us. - otternebr

Okay for an overnight stay as it is convenient off the interstate. Campground has a lot of full time campers which makes the place look trashy. Had a light that shined in camper all night. Absolutely no hot water in showers and complained twice about it. - Mri7853

Let me start by saying we didn't spend the night here. We stopped for a quick overnight and as soon as we pulled into our spot the power went out. Nothing anybody could control, but we all knew it wasn't going to be fixed at 7:00 on a Saturday night. They quickly refunded us our money (why stay if we didn't have power) and we were on our way. Pool looked great and campground seemed nice. - RebaDee

Beautiful park, no Verizon signal except at top of mountain or at overlook. Cable worked on #35 but not on 13 on the other side of campground. Crowded on weekends and holidays! Good grocery shopping in Chatsworth. Only 1 set washer /dryer and cheap .75 but stayed busy. - TomLisa

The roads into the campground are VERY narrow and tight. Unless you have a short camper, it is a task getting into the sites. The bath houses... need a little cleaning.
The sites are very close together and ours was facing the main road in the park. - Ginny76

Stayed three nights in early April mid-week. We stayed in the Creek loop (e.g. Loop #1), which showed evidence of extensive site work over the winter. many trees were cleared and some grading work had been completed. It was relatively easy to drive through in my large Travel trailer and this loop seemed a bit quieter. The other loop (#2) seemed to be tighter, both in the proximity of the campsites and the roads, but was closer to the lake. Newer facilities, at least in our loop, although the general park facilities were showing their age. Excellent hiking and mountain biking loops available, of a variety of lengths and difficulties, directly from campground. Cell phone service (we have a VZW Jetpack) was good on the side of the creek loop we were in (site #9 but nonexistent in other areas. If you plan on working remotely while you are here, site #9 worked for me. Drive up from Chatsworth to the park was steep, but not overwhelmingly so. There are a couple of nice viewpoints. Reconstructed tower in the park is worth the hike, as is the mysterious wall, and the viewpoint at the top of Fort Mountain surprised me in how beautiful it was! - Milesdowntheroad

We have stayed at this location several out of necessity. Have relatives in Calhoun and stay at this location when we travel to visit. This park has a petting zoo but they failed to keep animals and birds in one area. They go all over the park and no one cleans up after them. Also they give you a list of approx. 30 TV stations and you can only get the shopping channels and the kids channels. Called and complained but no one checked the problem. This is really a bad location to have to stay and it is the only camping place in this area. - Maggie43

Won't go back there unless necessary. Trashy and lots of junk everywhere. Only stayed one night. I think it was site 52 or 53. - PJ Norris

I camped here off season and was happy there. Some of the pull throughs are very short. The pool was very nice. They had a nice office store that also made food like pizza etc and deliver them to your site. They had a nice sized fenced in area for dogs however the grass was not cut and as high as the fencing. - S Dowdy

Camping is free if you use the Camping World Service Department during your stay. That's the reason for the 'Value' having an Excellent rating in my review. I would not have paid to stay here. Our site was narrow, trees in area and a narrow road made it difficult to enter site. Site was mostly dirt, some gravel and very little grass. Water spigot was not two inches above ground. If I didn't have a 90 degree elbow with me I would not have been able to attach my water hose to the spigot without removing dirt from around the spigot. Water pressure was good, but within an hour of arriving water was turned off for about an hour. Picnic table was very old, weathered, warped and splintered. Campground has cable TV, with SD channels only, channels are weak and 'snowy'. No WiFi in campground, WiFi is available in Camping World store. Parts of campground heavily treed. Our site was not that heavily treed, but our satellite antenna could not 'see' any of the Dish satellites 61, 72, 77, 110, 119 and 129. There are a few sites near the Service area the might get satellite reception . Campground is mostly seasonals, quite a few RVs were dirty and visually in need of repair. Interior roads are paved, but still lots of dust. Pool was closed during our stay with no reason given. Overall campground is clean. We were only here to use the Service Department otherwise we would not stayed here. The old saying 'You get what you pay for' applies here. - ETB

An old park but the price is right. It's used throughout the day by Camping World Sales and their service dept. It quiets down after they all go home at 4:30 p.m. We were here with out 42' 5th wheel so we had to unhook and park the truck off to the side. There is vehicle parking by the pool. The staff all seem very friendly. - JCZ

Gravel site with cement patio, lots of trees. Full hook-ups. Lots of static/snow on cable. Many sites are used by customers that are there to have service done on their RV and in some cases service was being done in the campground. - MarkandMarty

Large park with lots of permanent residents, the pull thru was long and the utilities where well placed. Check in was easy as was the short drive off the freeway. The interior roads are one way and narrow but we had no problem coming in or leaving. The park is well located to see Chattanooga where there is plenty to see. We would return if in the area. - sjones

A very nice park if you are looking to stay in Chattanooga. Nice grounds with a nice pool. Friendly staff, and they even gave us a refund when we had to leave a day early. Sites were gravel and long enough to park our Motorhome and tow vehicle. - Moo1966

Stayed for three nights while in the area. Staff very helpful and friendly. They charge a bit more than other places in the area plus an $3 for each person over 2. There are some permanent folks, but in expensive rigs. Very clean and worth the extra money. - Ugly SAM

Nice campground. It's a county run park but it rivals most state parks, and most of the facilities look pretty new (in 2015). All camping spaces are paved, with decks, nice fire rings, etc. Restrooms are pretty standard in the campground. Several really nice playgrounds for the kids.
Only thing to be aware of is the steepness of the roads and some campsites. This campground is HILLY so many of the sites, the only flat space is the paved pad and the wood deck.
Caretaker was very nice. Beach area looks nice and has canoes to rent, but we were here in April and it wasn't open for the season yet. - Buddy Ray

We stayed @ 001. Very nice! All hookups, clean and a deck overlooking a quiet cove of the lake. The campsites are close together. That was the only part I didn’t like. The dump station is at the bottom end of the campground so we had to pull all the way out of the camping area, turn around and go back in to the dump station. That was the only “hitch” we had. - Ginny76

Clean, quiet, safe, gorgeous campground on Carters Lake. Some sites are less spacious, so check map. However all are pretty good with at least some view of lake. We will definitely camp here again. - RBD-FL

The 4.2 mile entrance road to this campground reminds me of "The Devils Tail". Lots of twists, turns, ups and downs; but, the road is wide enough and in good condition so it shouldn't be a problem for even the largest rig if you're careful. Watch out for motorcycles on this road.
The CG is very nice. Carter Lake is a high mountain lake and the locals say it's a few degrees cooler in the summer. Like all COE parks, this one is well laid out for the terrain. However, the designer had some challenges on this one because of the narrow peninsulas. The lengths listed online are for the pad only; there is additional space in the site for a tow/towed vehicle. Because of the terrain many sites are oriented so the door faces the road and not the lake. Refer to the campground map on Recreation. gov to see these. Camp sites 18, 19, 21, 31, 32 and 33 (maybe a few more) are narrow with the "sitting area" behind the site instead of adjacent to the door side. These are still good sites, but don't allow much sitting area beside the camper. Most of the sites have a good view of the lake, although they are higher than the lake level in elevation. Some sites have decks or large door side sitting areas. There is a small swimming area with benches provided in a viewing area. Site 20 overlooks the swimming area. Good Verizon cell phone coverage. There is only one bath house for 40 sites, but it is clean and in good repair. Plenty of hot water in the showers with "real" controls (not a push button). The access loop for the dump station is a little short - fifth wheels have to "swing wide" for the proper approach. Also, the dump station has a little forward slope which doesn't allow complete draining of some of your tanks. Reports are the fishing is good with lake trout and bass. This is a nice, quiet campground. We will return. - Bama Camper
