Sites are mostly in the sun, but the campground is surrounded by trees with a creek running along the south and west edge of the campground. Sights are gravel with well maintained grassy areas. All sites appear to be level. We received approx. 30 over the air TV stations and the free wifi was fast. As mentioned, the entrance is steep but very doable. Wonderful staff. We stayed here during a non-race weekend and would stay here again. We camped at Shadrack Campground in a Motorhome.

This was an overnight for us so we didn't use any facilities, the entrance is a little awkward steep downhill grade and immediate tight turn to the parking lot then down a steep hill with washouts in the gravel to get to the sites, easy to navigate in this off season situation but would be a little harrowing if the park was full a good site for the money too far from the interstate but nearly next door to the racetrack so it depends on what you want to accomplish but overall a good choice We camped at Shadrack Campground in a Motorhome.

Very awkward entrance - can only reach from one side of road and very tight turn - then after checking in, you go down a very steep but short hill. All sites are back-in but since we were only staying overnight and the park was not full, they let us pull thru on one of the back to back sites. Wifi okay. Over the air TV okay. Paved roads, gravel sites. Nice staff. We camped at Shadrack Campground in a Motorhome.

As mentioned in other posts, the water and electrical hookups were centrally located for 4 sites. We parked on gravel and the site was level, dusty, but level. Good antenna reception. There were not many campers so we were able to let our 2 dogs run along the creek for the length of the park, though we probably weren't suppose to. This is the closest full hook up campground to Bristol, VA & TN. Because of this, we will be staying there again. Park is clean. The road going in and out is steep, but we pulled our 38' fifth wheeling and out with no problem. We camped at Shadrack Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall Rating:

The $56 is actually for 3 nights, but we only stayed 1. More on that later. This park has a very strange entrance and exit. From the road, you can't see the driveway and really have no idea what you're doing until you are 2/3 across the oncoming traffic. It (the driveway) is gravel and sloped down towards the office. Then it slopes further down and turns to get to the sites. In order to get out with your rig (towing), you will probably need 4-wheel drive because the incline from the sites to the office / road is steep and turns. The gravel was in good shape though.

The sites are every other one gravel, every other one grass. The water is located so that 4 sites use the connection. We had to run our water hose under our RV to the opposite back end. The electric is set up for 2 sites to use. Also, the sites are arranged so that you are literally back to back. The side yards are the tightest I've ever seen. In order for us to pull out from under our 5th wheel we had to pull all the up to the front (within inches) of a motor home that was across the street from us.

We were going to stay there 3 days, but we checked the weather our first morning and discovered that there was snow forecast for the morning we were suppose to leave. We are not fond of the idea of driving through the mountains of Tennessee and North Carolina with 16,000 pounds behind us while snow is falling. We opted to leave before the weather turned. Their policy is 72 hours for cancellation refunds. We did not get any of our money back. It is their policy and I don't hold it against them, but I don't have to like it either. We camped at Shadrack Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate of $18.00 includes tax and is with Passport America discount. We arrived after hours (in the dark) and helped ourselves to a site we liked. Entrance to the park is on a slight incline to the office/staging area and then a short steep gravel/dirt downhill drive to the campground. Roads are gavel and in fair shape. Site are designed as back-in but can be pull through if no one in site behind your site, pads alternate, every other one being gravel then grass. During non busy times RV's park on the gravel and have a large grass patio, extremely wide site although not very deep. During race weekend and very busy times grass becomes an RV pad and sites are very narrow, very close togther. Park was not busy during our stay, majority of park empty and clean. All hookups are at the rear of the site with some pedastalls being shared from RV's parked behind or to the side of your site. Depending on site selected, some hookups could be on the wrong side (far rear right) of the RV. Park is very close to Bristol Speedway and not far from retail outlets. Office staff very friendly. Sprint, verizon and T Mobile worked well. We did not locate or visit the shower or restrooms. There is a small store in the office with a few basic food items and a good varity of items/hardware for the RV. We would stay here again although not on a race weekend. We camped at Shadrack Campground in a Motorhome.

Sept 2017 Great campground, friendly helpful staff, level grave sites with grass, some pull-throughs, FHU, some shady sites, good free wifi. Entry/exit is a bit steep, keep to the right going in, and keep to left going out to avoid loose gravel. Handy to racetrack, shopping etc. We camped at Shadrack Campground in a Motorhome.

The staff was friendly and accommodating. When we arrived the campground was flooded due to a storm. The staff was moving everyone up to high grounds. After much discussion, I was given a site. I did not get a chance to explore the campground. I left early the next morning. We camped at Shadrack Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed at this campground two separate times while traveling to and from the east coast from Oklahoma. First time: This one was just an overnight stop. They accepted Passport so our stop was cheap. The campground was nearly empty. When I attached to power there was an issue with the power supply. The site behind me was empty so I attached to their pole. Problem solved. The rest of the overnight stay was fine. On the return leg of our trip we intended to stay 3 nights for the NASCAR race weekend. Here we experienced problems. 1. The water connection was on the wrong side. I used all 3 of my 25 foot hoses to make the connection. 2. After 2 nights in our planned 3 night stay the campground was ordered empty because of flooding. They had a few higher in elevation water and electric only sites they were moving people to. However, there were way too few of these to accommodate the campers. 3. During race weekends they don't just not accept discounts they GREATLY raise their prices. Race weekends are priced at a bit over $130 per night. They refunded the unused night in cash. Because we were forced to move we discovered better values are available for race weekends. If we found ourselves traveling through Bristol again we probably would stay with them again so long as flooding wasn't expected. We would NOT return for a race weekend. We camped at Shadrack Campground in a Travel Trailer.

If you are looking for a place to tailgate overnight near the Bristol Motor Speedway you may well enjoy this clean and convenient parking lot. I hesitate to call it a campground considering the way units are packed together. No picnic tables are provided and if you want a campfire you have to provide your own or rent one of theirs. On the positive side, the staff were friendly and helpful, their store is well stocked with RV supplies. If you are looking for an overnight (think Walmart with hookups) or in town for a race this might work out well for you. Otherwise I would recommend one of the other nearby parks. We camped at Shadrack Campground in a Motorhome.

Pretty much nothing but good things to say about this RV campground. Definitely not a ' trailer park' with seasonal- permanent occupants. My wife ran her own cleaning business for many years and she had nothing but compliments about the facilities being about the cleanest and most pleasant in our some 6000 miles of RVing.

Staff were genuinely friendly and congenial. Despite being along side a double major roadway, the road noise was at a minimum overnight as the campground is down in a hollow below the roadway. Very good Wi-Fi, a little broken up at times bu at least it worked compared to many campgrounds where the promised Wi-Fi really was non- existant. Full signal bars for Tracfone reception despite Verizon being the stronger signal in this part of the US.

Quiet, clean and great price either with discounts or at full price. just mind out for race car season and similar events- could get a little crowded, noisy and no discounts. We camped at Shadrack Campground in a Motorhome.

Very tight turn for big rig getting into the park from the road. Nice people. Utilities all good. No cable. Nice little creek to look at from some sights. Some sights have grass, the one we had was all gravel. Good wifi connection. We camped at Shadrack Campground in a Motorhome.

We arrived at dark, not our usual M/O, so the driveway into the park besides being odd was pretty tricky. The park itself is fine. We did not want to unhook and we able to achieve that by sticking into the road quite a bit which no one complained about. Sites, though not long, were spacious enough. I got the idea they double them up when needed on race weekends. They have four water spigots grouped together in the rear, an odd arrangement which meant that, had we used water, we would have had to string our hose(s) under the rig. Elec and sewer were at the back of the sites as well, not the best location for many rigs. We were off a busy street but we didn't notice traffic noise.

This park seems far from the interstate but getting back on without backtracking was easily accomplished. Bristol Motor Speedway is one mile away. Downtown Bristol is quaint, and when straddling the Main Street you can have one foot in TN and one in VA.

Shadrack Campground

Bristol, TN

We first stopped at Shadrack in April on our way to New England and were very pleased with the campground. On our way back South we decided to spend a week back in Shadrack. What a remarkable change The management have made in the 5 months since we had left!

The addition to coin operated laundry to the fully funsctional kitchen for small gatherings is Assume! Also they have a pot luck Thursday which is fantastic , smoked ribs are GREAT.

His work campers do a great job keeping the park neat. We will definitly add Shadrack as a place we will always stop at! We camped at Shadrack Campground in a Motorhome.
