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

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

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

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

Picture a big field with dusty, gravel roads and gravel sites with full hook ups. That's what we got at Baggentoss Farms for $49. We only used this as an overnight stop. It was about 8 miles from the interstate. My review might be different if we were staying there to take advantage of the Adventure Park. However, the park was closed. Bottom line....way too expensive for an overnight with no amenities. - The Regans

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

Love, love their new Bathrooms. Ya go in & lock the door - All by yourself - shower, sink, toilet - perfect !! We stayed here in 2015 & as the years go by it gets better & better. The pool is so inviting. If ya didn't bring a swimsuit - believe me you'll go buy one. We stayed in site #13- close to special patio sites, a little crowded (If they had been rented) next time we will chose one of the sites on the wooded side .. #22 or 20. - MobileMurphy

Secluded site, quiet, friendly staff, ample camp store for supplies. All you really need. Only downside was wi-fi and cable were weak. - Chris Desselles
Aug 2019 - $62.00
A nicely wooded campground with very tall trees. Sites, unfortunately, are pretty close together. Site 39 has a significant downward incline once you are parked. I had to put pads under my front wheels to somewhat level. Internet was surprisingly fast. You could hear occasionally hear trucks on the interstate. I would return. - RVStudent

We went to visit and look this campground over, and the owner gave us a very detailed tour. Talk about friendly! We had driven to this park 5 or 6 years ago, only to drive away and put it on our "do not go here" list. We thought we'd check it out once again, and we were very pleasantly surprised! The park is clean, showers and bathrooms extra clean. The cabins are very well appointed. The activities list goes on and on, and they are very motorcycle friendly. Visit the site and have a look at the pictures. They're honest pictures that give a true reflection of the feel of the park. I would give them a much better score if they had more sewer sites than they do. - TaylorShopping

The Pros: Pet friendly, wi-fi available, great view, peaceful. The Cons: No bathroom or shower facilities any closer than the 1/4 to a 1/2 a mile walk from camping area, no public telephone, no food, beverages, or ice at location, must drive 8 miles for anything. No cable or satellite access. Management is very unprofessional (a woman running around half dressed). I was there for Valentines Day, and any respectable persons do not care for such behavior. Most residents or visitors were men, so we guessed its acceptable to most there. This park is geared for hang gliders only apparently, at least now. We were there several years ago and it had different management, public restrooms, showers, public phone, and served food at campsite area via a concessions unit. It was obvious to us they neither cared or wanted private individuals in their park. It appeared the park has many permanent residents in it, hang gliders we assumed. - Jerry & John

A very clean, and well cared for facility! Staff was courteous, helpful and responsive. The park is nestled at the base of Lookout Mountain in a delightful rural setting. It is located next to hang gliding landing field and caters primarily to those who come for hang gliding but all are welcome. Chattanooga is an easy drive with many activities available in the area. It was fascinating watching the hang gliders being towed up for their flights or watching them glide gracefully to the ground. All the people we met during our stay were warm and friendly. I strongly recommend you consider staying at this safe and family oriented facility. - Rowbear

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
