Stayed here 2 nights in a 26 foot TT at site 20. All sites are pull thru and gravel with full hookups with grass on each side of gravel. Call for directions and use old TN -111 highway. Beautiful view of the Lake/pond. Nice dog walking area near lake/pond. Site 28 has best view of lake/pond. Good access to showers and bathrooms. Bathrooms are amazing as each one is a totally complete private entity. Open the door and each one contains a big modern shower (with pretty shower curtains), a toilet and a sink. Also there is a handicap one that is very handicap safe. The laundry room has many newer appliances and open 24/7. All spotlessly clean. On our 4 week trip consisting of 14 RV parks, most all the campers at the 13 other parks had very large RVs or 5th wheelers as compared to our 26 foot TT; This park was the only one on our trip that had some smaller travel trailers; pop-ups, etc. The reason has to be the wonderful private bathrooms and laundry. Free wi-fi and excellent price at $36. Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence for 2017. - greensgirl46

This is a hidden gem. Great Campground, very quiet and relaxing. Level full hookup sites. Staff/owners were very friendly and helpful. We are considering a return trip in the future. - JRS950

This campground is a bit off the beaten path, which is why we loved it. No highway traffic noise. The most clean and quiet campground we've ever stayed. The sites are close together, which is something we try to avoid when choosing a campground, but it wasn't an issue this trip. We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay and would definitely return. - cibergenie

Beautiful property full of quiet spots perfect to relax the day away at. Campsites were private and beautiful scenery. This is an off grid campground. Bring toilet paper and a bag. No electric but we didn't use our phones anyway. - Hammock Sway

Some of the interior roads are not big rig friendly. Last year we drove through 1 of the areas on the island that were pull through...they must only be for small campers and tents. We had to remove our ladder to squeeze past a tree. This time we knew where to go! Right on the lake, quiet & peaceful in the winter. We only saw 1 other camper in the area. The rest seem to gravitate towards the area by the entrance. Nice big playgrounds. Con is there's no sewer and some spots are uneven. - Ontheroamagain

PROS: Beautiful lake. CONS: Excessive slope. High-crime? - Not friendly. Huge park. Not one park employee or camper said "hello". Glass window and cop car at entrance made it seem like a high-crime area. - Website said site 183 could accommodate a 57 foot motorhome. The site could barely handle a pop-up trailer. Our motorhome is 34 feet. Utilities too far away; had to extend our electric cable. - Excessive slope. We could have broken our necks getting out of the rig. - Website should be updated to show which sites are sloped before laying out 100+ dollars. - tdrager

This is an awesome park! We stayed 5 nights (Sunday through Thursday) and loved it. The campground was mostly full even during the week, but didn’t feel too crowded. Our site, B97, was roomy and level. We drove the scenic loop to see waterfalls, hiked several trails, did the Junior ropes course with our daughter, swam at the pool, rode bikes in the campground and spent some time relaxing. The only down sides I saw were the WiFi (you had to pay for it) and there weren’t very many ranger-led programs. We did go to one program in Loop A, and it was very noisy over there (so don’t stay there if you want a quiet site). This park is definitely worth it! - JeniLynne

This was a great park, my family had a blast. The park itself is very beautiful and the facilities were well taken care off, my daughter said that the only facility downside was the nature center as "I had hoped for more" but other than that no complaints. Other than that they has a well stocked general store as well as a souvenir shop. Plenty to do from, hiking, fishing, swimming (fresh water swimming holes or pool), wadding around in the creek, ropes adventure course, to just hanging out. It is a very large campground but once we were tucked back into our site we never felt overly crowded. My biggest, and pretty much only, complaint was the levelness of the site. The TN State Park website has it listed as a "slight incline" but as you can see I had every leveler I owned and it was still not enough. We were in Campground B and there was a gray water discharge station in the middle of the campground so you did not have to drag you portable tank all the way to the big dump station. The bathhouses are not the newest but the staff does it best to keep the as clean as possible. What I really loved was the trash cans at each site and these were emptied daily. No cell service at all on AT&T and T-Mobile. Park does have free wi-fi the is okay, you can pay if you want a faster speed. If you have a big rig stay in Campground A or B as a C and part of D are tight. Also avoid the cul-de-sac's if possible as they are very small and would take to some to turn a big rig around. I would return to Fall Creek Falls in a heartbeat but would just remember to bring some more 2x4's to assist in the leveling. The ropes adventure course is great, once they show you how to use the gear it is all self paced. - Ian B

We stayed here less than a year ago, but wanted to do another review since this was the first time we were here 'in season.' This really is our favorite TN state park. Quite large with lots to do, beautiful landscape, and lots of ranger-led activities. We played on the playgrounds, went for a hike, rented a boat and fished on the lake, relaxed to a bluegrass band, rode bikes in the campground, and just had a big time. The two biggest negatives are the crowds on the weekends, and the unlevel campsites. Our site was quite private, but required 4 inches of lift on the door side, and the trailer tongue being all the way down, which made the outdoor kitchen almost useless. But, we'll be back next Summer because these inconveniences are trivial compared to everything else the park has to offer. The camp general store has a decent selection of food, drinks and supplies, but bring your own because there are no other stores around. Pool snack bar has fast food, ice cream and local craft beer. Bring your own battery and trolling motor so you can rent a boat and fish the beautiful lake. - VolFan9183

Clean campground with four large camping areas. We stayed in Area C in site #19 and our site was nearly level. We walked or drive though the other three camping areas just to see those conditions. Most sites are small to medium in size and most are close together and some looked difficult to access. We noticed a number of sites that were not very level and watched some campers work hard to get their rigs set-up. No sewer service but there is a dump station near the camp office. - CroweTravels

Harrison Bay SP has 4 camping areas. We were in section C. Our site was somewhat level, with shade and on the corner so not too close to our neighbor. Some sites were very close to each other. Our site was on the entrance to the loop near the main road so during the weekend there was quite a bit of traffic going down to the lake. It appeared all campsites are walking distance to the lake. The lakeside sites in section C are very nice but there are only 5 of them. The pool will open Memorial Day weekend and is large with also has a kiddie pool. There are 3 hiking trails, two under a mile and a 4.5 mile lake trail. We found many ticks on the dog after the hike so beware. Area C has 4 private bathrooms for 40 campers. The shower heads in the shower do not move so they are very close to the wall. Bathrooms were clean even on a busy weekend. TV reception was good and we got many stations and complimentary WiFi was a plus. - MarcyB

Use to be a great park until they decided to redo campsites and making them less attractive and the restrooms are designed without thinking about campers. The restrooms are designed where an individual shower and commode are together and and that they are only six restrooms available for a section that has 40 sites so their is going to what to a wait especially is people are taking showers. - Halloweenguy

Great access to the property with easy on and off interstate with straight roads for travel that takes you to a semi secluded piece of TN. Out of all the places the family has had the opportunity to stay, I felt like this adventure was one of the best. Even though not open, their zip line course looked top notch and looked like it would be loads of fun. (Can not wait to go back in March when they open). The RV site itself was perfect for setup. Even with our large Prevost, hookup was no problem. The property manager met us there and was very knowledgeable about the property as well as the hookup procedure. It was a seamless check in. We had the opportunity to hike this beautiful landscape. The scenery is astounding, with the mountain views and the deer and turkey roaming the property. So a big Shout out to Baggenstoss Farms for creating such a wonderful experience. - David_The RV Guy

We stayed 2 nights in a 40 foot fifth wheel. This was a very pleasant surprise, nice park. The only reason I don't rate this higher is short and narrow sites with no shade at all. First, let me say the service was excellent. This is a family-owned park that was a working chicken and cattle farm back in the 80s. The owners have installed RV sites in two phases and a third section is planned. If you want to stay in a park where the owner is glad to see you this is it. Please note that the park is about 45 minutes off the highway so it is not "on the way" but it is well worth it if you are going to stay a bit. Chat with the owner, really nice guy. Walk the tree line and you might get lucky and find some ripe berries. - Moe and Flo are on the go

Wish I could give 11 stars...can't say enough about manager and his staff. Helped me out when my fifth wheel battery failed, lent me tools, very friendly. Campsite had a nice view and you could walk about 100 feet to a great view. Internet was strong. Pull through site was easy to manage. These folks went out of their way to make me feel comfortable at all times. It's what other RV parks should model themselves after. - lesstraveledroad

I can agree with most of what the others have said about this RV park. It is a beautiful setting with a view over many hills and valleys. It is very well maintained with seasonal decorations. I should have asked when I made reservations about the price but I assumed that it would be what was quoted on their website $30. When I arrived I was charged almost $37 per night even after I mentioned the website stated $30. The distance going out there and up the 8% grade up the mountain had me settle for this higher amount. If they want to charge this much they really should advertise it factually. The gravel drives and sites were done nicely but I did have to put 5" of blocking under my front tires to be level. This park is designed for self contained units as it only has a single restroom and shower in the office. This was not a problem for us as we use our own facilities. We had a 40' mh w/ toad. It is 23 miles to Manchester and 26 miles to McMinnville. - JAWS

We had a water site and it was not worth the $40.00 it cost . As stated before, water is a scum pond. Lots of noise in morning. A lot of long-term sites. - This Old Man
Oct 2015 - $31.00
Not sure if I should even give this park a 3. Lots of long termers that live full time. If you want to sleep in, forget it - there's motorcycles and loud trucks leaving early in the a.m. There is NO cable unless you want to make a $100 deposit for the box. And you don't pick up anything over the air.
By the time we realized the paper the office gave us didn't have a WiFi code on it, was too late for us to go to the office and ask. Couldn't call as there is NO cell signal in the park.
The restaurant is only open on Saturday nights.
This part of the lake needs attention. Green algae way out in to the water.
The putt putt course had caution tape all around it. The pool was closed. The roads are not in good shape. No picnic tables at the sites. Odd layouts for hookups. You could tell at one time this park could have been a destination with lots to do, but it's worn and thread bare now.
Be very careful driving in and leaving as the road is basically single lane with ditches right on the edge.
Why did we stay here? The park where we wanted to stay was full, and we needed to be in the area. We would not stay here again - if we needed to be in the area & could not get our preferred park, we'd stay farther away & drive more. - 3catstravel

RV Park is set back away from traffic, very very quiet, sites are spacious, cable with zillion channels, long termers are nice, water front sites are for overnites in summer, but river view still there for other sites inside rows. Staff are excellent, Joy in particular!! Pool is nice, marinas on the river, with boat rentals and cabin rentals. I had a problem with a work contract there in Chatanooga and the manager was gracious enough to give me a refund, they didn't have to do that, but they did. Sure the geese are around but all you have to do is hose down your site, they stay on the river and come ashore to walk around. Some of the sites don't yet have the new cable connections in but the staff are in the process of completing this. All in all its a great place with mountains on each side of the marina, so cell coverage is scanty, but I had no problem with their WIFI and I was pretty far back, its an issue they try to work on constantly. I definitely will try to come back just to relax!! - Ms Mary

This is a very nice and quickly accessible campground from I-24. The staff was super friendly and accommodating. The dog park was awesome too! The cave by the campground was pretty neat. - The Egners

DO NOT book this place for just one night, fantastic with so much to do cannot see and do everything in a few short hours. A bit difficult to find but large bill boards will get you here and this place is well worth the effort. Office staff could not do enough for me, escort to site. Gravel site pull thru no need to unhook but you will need your car, lots of grass and very wide, concrete patio with table, fire ring and near level. Trash pick up twice a day at your site, propane available. Large "Bark Park" all grass and water. Wonderful hiking trails, panning for crystals, cave and cavern tours, work-out room (small but you can work up a sweat), basketball court, large pool and that is just on property. - Tahoetom
