General Campground Information

We want you, our Guests, to have the most amazing camping experience of your lives! Relax, have fun, stay safe, and enjoy camping at its best.


Our campground is open ALL YEAR!!! Check in is any time after 1:00, and check out is by 11:00. We have very clean rest rooms and bath houses, a laundry room and a little convenience store. For the kids there is a playground, swimming pool and a volleyball area. For your pet we have a large fenced in area where they can run and play. (Pet restrictions apply to aggressive breeds such as pitt bulls, dobermans and rottweilers.) We have owned the campground since 2000. We have really enjoyed meeting all the many campers who have stayed with us over the years, and look forward to meeting you.

Meet Your Hosts

The Gardell Family

We enjoy the daily comments that we receive from our campers about how nice the campground is!

A love of the outdoors and the decision to make career changes brought Tom and Pat Gardell, owners of the Buffalo KOA, to Tennessee.

Tom, who had spent approximately 25 years in the corporate world of Human Resources/Labor Relations, decided he was tired of sitting behind a desk. Pat, who had owned and operated a beauty salon, shared her husband's love of the outdoors and camping, so they decided to become campground owners.

Since purchasing their campground, they have made numerous improvements to the campground, and enjoy the daily comments they receive from their campers about how nice the campground is. Tom and Pat look forward to treating their customers in a way that will leave a long-lasting positive impression of the campground and staff.

When they're not busy operating the campground, Tom and Pat can be found enjoying their time being grandparents.
