  • The kids ...all ages had a great time but closing the pool mid august...for the winter....was a bit disappointing. Everything was squeaky clean and the only noise at night was the night time crickets. Lots of nice kids on bikes. And the people in charge of the park were super nice. They have plans for the Halloween weekend and the kids are begging to go back. Sorry we didon't make it to worship services but the kids were exhausted from staying up half the night looking for raccoons.
  • We came here specifically for the kids playground as we were passing through the area in the midst of a 6-hour drive. The kids needed to stretch their legs for an hour. The playground here should be the standard that all playgrounds are compared to. We have nothing like this in Florida. First, the actual playground is of a superb size. The perimeter takes you through The Lion, Witch, and Wardrobe book by CS Lewis. There are even closets with fur coats hanging up. As you follow the story along the path, you cross over a little stream and through the forest. There are statues and some audio as well. There are musical instruments with notes laid out for playing everyone's favorite TN song (Rocky Top) and a fort up on a hill for the kids to explore. There are restroom facilities, drinking fountains, and even a little outdoor theater for performances. Parking is easy, and there is lots of shade / benches to enjoy. Congratulations to the state of Tennessee for putting together such a great place for kids to come and play.
  • Stayed here on a long weekend in a small travel trailer. It is a very large and busy park on weekends. Good trails along river. I was pleased with clean restrooms and hot showers. Good OTA TV, cell phone reception, and two dump stations. The only drawbacks were narrow roads within campground and blindside backing into sites. Campground was full so book well ahead.
  • Beautiful place! It's hard to keep it clean but the employees do their best. Love the atmosphere, very family friendly. Don't miss Darrells Dream, especially if you have children!
  • Great park with trails, paddle boats, canoeing, fishing and horse back riding stables. It's a great place for family and friends. Stunning beauty and an abundance of wildlife. Playground is great for kids. It's a place I visit often. I haven't had any bad experiences here.
