  • Very crowded. Did not feel like camping. Too many RVs not enough woods. Bathroom reeked of urine. This is a problem with all Tenn.parks restrooms at state parks.  more »

  • Tims Ford is a great place to walk and relax. If you're looking for a break from your cell phone and life, take a trip to this park. Wildlife can easily be seen, and the views from the trails are gorgeous. XPLR this park for an amazing adventure that you won't soon forget. Pack a lunch and make it a day event. You won't regret it.
  • Great place to camp, fish, kayak or most any water sport. Rates are reasonable but better call ahead to reserve as it gets very busy in the summer months. Try it, you'll like it!
  • Hey golfing in November for us northern people awesome. Had yes rental clubs were great. Lefty too. The scenes were beautiful. Thanks for a great round ..... Yup I beat the man too.
  • We had a great first experience camping here. Yes the bathrooms are a little rundown as mentioned in previous reviews. The Guest Services lady said they are building new bathrooms by January. We really enjoyed our stay and can't wait to come back and try some trails and kayaking. The staff was very friendly. Bring cash if you need firewood. We didn't know firewood was cash only and wound up foraging for our fire wood.
  • This place is great! My family's personal favorite is the pool. It's really big and has 2 diving boards off to the side. The staff is always friendly and they have affordable pricing. Mt son loves it!
