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

Great campground with numerous lakefront campsites! Pros - level sites, fishing, water activities, great scenery Cons - Not full hookup, A bit crowded and close sites, checkout is noon. - RandyP

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

We stayed 2 nights just to rest up on our trip down to Florida. Check-in was easy and folks were very friendly. Our site was a "deluxe pull-thru"--not sure I'd call it deluxe. It was gravel and had at least 2-3 feet of elevation change from end to end. As far as value, if you were staying in the area to visit many of the Chattanooga attractions, it's a super location and worth the money. For an overnight stop, it's way overpriced. Nice dog park. Fairly convenient to I-75 (less than 2 miles). Nice big billboard shows you where to turn left off the state highway. It looks like you're turning into a subdivision, but the sign confirms your are in the right place. - Greg75

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

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

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

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 comfortable CG. Quiet, clean with many large trees providing shade for some of the sites. Utilities were well placed. The location is in Georgia by a couple of 100 yards but offers good access to Chattanooga tho the immediate area is sparse on restaurants other than fast food and some small local places (we didn't care much for the couple we tried). I-75 is close but I couldn't hear traffic. Nice, large, clean laundry. Fair number of full-timers but all sites were tidy. The WiFi was down more than it was up, not useful for much. The WiFi at the office worked well tho. - RedHorse1

Very nice park and well located to visit the Chickamauga & Chattanooga Battlefield Park and also visiting other sites in Chattanooga. We stayed a week which enabled us to visit all parts of the Battles. The sites were level, there was grass between them, a firepit and picnic table were provided though the table could be updted. The sites were a bit narrow to get between the hook-ups and the cement patio. Clean restrooms nice walking around the park. - swike

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

Marion County Park. Chattanooga Tennessee. $20 a night, good fishing, waterfront lots but not many tree at the water. 30amp and 30/50amp sites, but my large Jayco still was able to run both A/C's and maintain 115v's on both legs and was able to pull 31amps from the 30amp breaker. (Progressive Industries EMS-HW50C) Our one night stay was perfect from reservations on the phone, to showing up at check in time which is 1 PM and leaving the next morning everything was great. - Brian Dill

Hard to beat the price for water & electric with a dump station available. We looked at the restroom/shower facilities—not very clean, but we’ve seen worse. We had good AT&T service. Convenient to I-24 and not too far from Chattanooga. - Team Janne

We hesitated to stay here because of previous reviews. Checkin was friendly and accommodating. Our site was on the waterfront. It looked like the old bathroom facilities had been torn down and new ones were underway. There is no wi-fi here but we had good Verizon. The noise from I-24 does travel across the water but we did not find it disturbing. We would stay here again! - MsLucy

I have been camping for over 40 years and after reading some of the reviews I was a little apprehensive about staying here. I must say I was happily surprised. The campground is on a mountain, but I did not see one site that was not level, traffic noise is not bad, park is about a quarter mile from the interstate. When looking for the street, just turn at the Subway sign same road leads into campground. Would rate this one in the top 10. - Longtinecamper

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

This is a nice campground. It is by a lake and a public park. We were able to run and swim our dog early morning without a leash. The park is clean. There are some long-term rigs there. I wouldn't say it handles big rigs very well--at least not 40' motorhomes! We pulled in after dark...I would not recommend unless you are familiar with the park! Their website's directions are not correct so be cautious! We tried a couple sites before deciding on one. Pads are gravel and soft (maybe just because it is early spring?) Our front jack went in about 6 inches. The pull-thrus are half-circles so if someone is in "front" of you your ability to pull out of your site could be very tight. There is no sewer at the sites...only dump station. Overall, I think it would be a great park for smaller rigs. - Gma Linda

Love this park. This was our first time here since its 1.5hr out from our house. Very friendly staff also making sure everything was ok. Plenty of room for our kids to play safely and a huge bonus was the big playground area. Lots of area to fish which my husband loved. They had a big fire pit at every lot. Also a pole to hang a lantern if you needed one. Right off the interstate and close to a local Walmart if you forgot anything. Only thing that I personally don't like is they don't take reservations and do anything online. BUT WE WILL DEFINITELY COME BACK - Campingfamily4life

This is a very nice,clean campground located on Nickajack Lake/Tennessee River. Friendly management that were very accommodating! I have a small Casita TT, but the park could accommodate up to the largest Class A, I'm sure. Since I was only staying for the night and not even unhooking, the manager took me to a pull through site looking right at the lake. It was so pleasant, I hung around until almost noon the next morning! Electric and water hookups at sites, dump station on site. Perfect if traveling through because it is literally 2.5 miles off of I-24. They are open year round except for two weeks in January. They don't officially take reservations but if you know that you are coming in that no, you can call them and they will hold one for you. I will definitely stay there again overnight and hopefully for a few days sometime! - coosa
