The drive to the park is interesting. Signage is poor. We camped next to the lake in a pull through. We tried two sites and took the one that was more level. Electric and water good the staff was wonderful. - workcamper64

We were able to book a waterfront site at Cedar Point CG on Normandy Lake in TN. The site was indeed on the water with a beautiful view..the lake being only about 75 feet from the camping site. Pluses: 1. All sites we saw are gravel and pull thru of the "swing around to the right" type. 2. New electric pedestals and new looking water spigots 3. Clean & easy access dump station with a nice wash out hose at station, & the station was LOW, making dumping easy and the hose had a cut off valve, making washing up very simple. 4. A bath house was reasonably close to the sites [<100 yds] 5. Very attentive & pleasant staff 6. lots of old shade trees for most of the sites, especially along the waterfront. Minuses: 1. We found 3 fairly large piles of dog poop in our site ,near the picnic table, when we pulled in 2. The quality of the lake water was below par for what we had been led to expect... a lot of red muddy water near shore, even in the roped-off "swimming area" where we found the beach sand about 50% red mud. We elected not to go swimming, tho it was a hot day. 3. The campground bath house had only one toilet [for the mens], and a urinal. My wife said there were two toilets for the ladies. The bath house had only one shower stall for the mens and one for the ladies, which were old and in poor condition. 4. the old showers were the terrible "push button" type which only stayed on for about 30 seconds per push and there was no hot water when we went to shower around 10pm. No exhaust fans, lots of biting bugs and mud on the bathouse floors made using the bathouses a pain. 5. The cost was high..we had to pay $38 for one night..which was $10 more per night than we paid at a FL State Park, with great beaches & amenities. - Fred762

Given a large fantastic pull-through site (1 of 70) on the waterfront (1 of 11) when we pulled up without reservations for the night. Mostly seasonal occupants with elaborate temporary camp set-ups (large canopies, pontoon boats, bass boats, grills, golf carts etc.). Showers are all tiled and clean. Lake front was clean with a great blue heron stalking back and forth in front of us. Nice sandy swimming beach. Would definitely stay here again. - Appleknocker

We needed a place to stay for one night, but had to pay for two nights. We understood that coming in, so this is not a complaint. Our campsite overlooked the lake that was lovely. Our site was oddly shaped, so that we had to park right next to the road in order to reach the utilities. We had a huge amount of space that we would have liked to have used to get away from folks driving on the road. The campsite across from us had a motor home, 3 cars, 2 trucks, a boat on a trailer, and a golf cart parked along the side of the road. This meant that vehicles driving through swerved to our side of the road. - ShoreXplorers

Stayed here two nights. Exit 105 on I-24 and take signs to Normandy Dam. Check-in is easy and camp hosts are exceptionally friendly and helpful. Paved interior roads easy to navigate and gravel sites. Our site PT faced the water with partial shade and is not level but manageable. Water and electric worked well. Zero (ATT) reception. A lot of green space with oak trees and pines to walk your dog. Most sites are occupied by locals with trailers and 5th wheels that reserve for thru the summer season. Very elaborate setups with canopies, outdoor furniture, smokers, etc. Everything is neat and clean. Boats are available thru the CG and locals bring their boats and park them on the shoreline. Great place to get away from everything. - RTM

We contacted the owner once before we began our trip but were unable to reach him while traveling to the park or upon arrival. We walked the site before attempting to drive through the covered bridge or up the steep, loose gravel driveway. We decided to drive on to a state park rather than stay in such an ill-kept, vacant, poorly mowed "park". - franklintwo

We stayed because it was our only option for Lynchburg except we later noticed a city park that allows RV's which would have been just as good. It was very hard to get hold of the site management, and the place is in disarray. There is moving equipment everywhere. It was OK for overnight, but there is zero shade. The owner said he had too many irons in the fire to take care of the park. We had to hunt him down to pay him. Would stay in the city park next time. - mikeandann

We stayed here one night traveling through. Easy access to campground. All sites have full service, 50 amps, water and sewer at all sites. Would stay here again when traveling. I only rated it a 7 because it would not be a good, long stay location for us. Overnight it was great. - dmoore1108

We stayed here several night waiting on a grand baby to come. It was a great location for us. Very easy to get to from the interstate. The hosts were very knowledgeable and welcoming.
The website was very accurate in describing the level vs slight incline of the site.
The office staff were great in helping us move reservations around to different sites. This park is very popular, make reservations ahead of time if you want to stay, especially on a weekend!
If you have children, the playground is good in the park and another near their office. Our 2&4 year olds enjoyed the Storybook walk, owl and hawk that they have in a pen.
Only negative, don’t tow your dingy from the office. The roads have some trees near them.
Don’t expect antennae tv or Satellite. - Msu jg

Beautiful park with shaded, spacious sites with water and electric. Restrooms were clean. The only complaint was the showers had shower heads that did not move and were against the wall making it difficult to shower. The trails were easy and well marked. They have an Inn and Restaurant across the street from the camping area. Hours of the restaurant were limited during the week - 11-2. We were there before Memorial Day weekend so they may change. The pool was also closed the week before Memorial Day but looked very nice and refreshing. Nashville is about an hour from the park and Jack Daniel's Distillery was about 45 minutes away. - MarcyB

We really like Henry Horton. We stay here every year right after school lets out. The camp hosts are always very friendly and approachable! They were super-willing to help out any time. The sites are all very shaded and spacious. Especially 13-25. They are all on asphalt. The bathhouses are very well kept and up to date. The camp store is small but is very well equipped with things a camper may have forgotten...or trinkets a camper might want for fun. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. The trails are nice and easy to take. Deer and turkey are everywhere. - Tennessee Teacher Camper

This is a quiet out of the way park.. But not quite what I expected. The website made it look like a busy equestrian park.. I expected to see campers with horses.. but there were none. It's a good idea but wasn't working. This place was just okay.. No cable, no over the air tv, no Sat tv because of the overhead trees. If you are going to Columbia, TN I would not stay again as it was to far away. On the web site I should have noticed the following: "Photos are indicative of the area, not necessarily what you will see at the park." and "Large graveled semi-level lots." What the website didn't show is exactly what this place is like. I felt safe in this out of the way park but other than that.. I can't say anything else. - Dom A.

My family and I have been here for a year while we've been waiting on my husband's transfer. I hate to leave because we've had such a good experience here. The owners have only been here for a couple of years, but they've been making improvements. There is a playground, clean pool, large field for playing in, and the owners live on the property and are always available. We keep to ourselves and don't require a lot, and we've never had a problem here. For instance, on Christmas Eve, the owner brought all the last minute packages we got (and there were MANY), during a storm, and he had the best attitude. They always offer to help, and I've never seen a bad attitude in the staff. The place is still improving, and I know it's just going to get nicer each year. It isn't fancy and big, but for a place to stay or live for a while (if you aren't needing anything more than a place to stay) it's great and has all the necessities. There are bathrooms, showers, and a dumpster that's easy to get to. if we come back here to TN again, we'll stay here. There is a mix of full time and overnighters. - akwright04

Campsite in front of us had a truck with a flat tire and another car that looked like it had not been started in years! Other sites were run down and surrounded by dead plants. While there were a few newer campers most sites looked really "lived in." Thought it might be ok after the lady at the KOA recommended this place to me after I could not get a site there. I even talked to the manager here before I book and questioned him about some of the poor reviews. He assured me improvements had been made and those bad reviews were from people that had been asked to leave. Our site was not very level but we did finally get our RV leveled. We were able to get our slides out but unable to get our awning out due to site being so narrow. An old grill was left on our site. Should also have turned around and left when I saw the disarray of the office. It was just horrible. Thankfully only staying here one night. Will not be returning here!! Gave it 2 stars because it at least had full hookups. - Beth Cornwell

Perfect for an overnight stay. Off the interstate under the trees, level sites. Welcome rest spot after a long day on the road. I read earlier reviews and it seems they were taken to heart. Pikes of gravel are being worked into the sites, restrooms looked recently painted. Pool was busy. They were having a family reunion and those folks seemed pleased. Sites are very long. - Champ203

Things haven't changed since 2018 review. The park was great with nice walking trails etc. but the campground sites lacked clean up on the parking pads, bbq and fire rings. Couldn't get tv reception but able to connect to our hot spot to catch up with what's going on which was fine with us. The height on the bridge crossing was fine but we managed to hit a side mirror so watch the width. We stayed 3 nights, Sunday-Wednesday. It seems like all the sights are booked on weekends though. - ursula white

The State Park trails were outstanding and educational and the short canoe tour was enjoyable. We would return for the park itself. However, the campground gets a thumbs-down rating: Asphalt pad, 6" out of level. Ours was dry but there were many swampy campsites, There was a grill, fire ring and a nice table, but the ground was poorly maintained. Gravel patios adjacent to the rv sites would improve the camping experience dramatically. Signage could use improvement. Reserved campers should just pull in, rather than searching for a check in attendant. Overall, not impressed with the campground. It is due for an update. - Russell Moon

Nice, quiet little park. Not a ton to do, but some good hiking and the campground is relaxing with good space between sites and lots of wildlife. The old enclosure area is really interesting. The facilities do need some updating, especially the electrical, as we did experience some low voltage during peak times. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. - VolFan9183

Stayed here and lots of permanent campers here. Some well kept others not so much. Your kids can play in the playground but if you have visitors come up they will charge you for each additional kid to play on the playground. Even if the visitors don't stay over night. Lots of exposed wiring hanging around and needs a code inspector to pay a visit. - johngi01

The part of the campground (Devil's Step) where we stayed was on a peninsula (surrounded on three sides with water). This allowed for swimming, fishing, jet skiing, boating, etc. The lake was beautiful. Since we were preregistered, there was no registration process. The Campground was very kid friendly. - Kanuer

We stayed during the week of the 4th. The park was very quiet considering it was completely full. Our site 19 was shady and spacious, however, it was tight getting in due to how small the parking area is and how tight the roadways are. Everyone has to park along the edges and that makes it hard if you are backing in and someone is across from you. My trailer is 24 feet and I had to hang off the back and then there were only a few feet left from the front to the road. I had to park my truck to the side which made it a little tight for us to walk out from our asphalt space. When you are unhooking your camper or hooking back up, you will be blocking the roadway because every spot is so tight. No one can get around your tow vehicle while you are working. Our friends had 15 and 17 and they were just as tight, but they weren't on the edge of a drop off and was able to park in the grass to the side. All 3 of our sites were great though. I would stay in any of them again. I would not choose any on the inside. All of the power and water to these sites are on the wrong side. You would need an extension and extra hose to reach. The bathhouses were up to date and nice. They weren't always the cleanest but I blame that on the holiday week and the fact that the park was completely full. Also, several people would come straight from the lake and take their muddy dogs in there to clean them. The internet is terrible! You only get 3 days of free slow wifi and cell service is extremely spotty. There is only 1 dump station. - Tennessee Teacher Camper

Campers should be aware that campsites on the inside of the loop have connections on the wrong side of the pad. Also longer units are advised to use the outside where they can hang off the end a little if needed. Sewer hookups sites 1-4. WiFi is working but slow. Verizon is spotty. - joshjack
