The weather was not very nice during our stay at this newly converted to KOA campground. Lakes the basics I'm familiar with at KOAs. Like a K-9 Area with bags to pick up, paved sites, cable television, etc. But there are great views and lots of trees.

The staff were very nice. The bathhouse did not have no electrical outlets,the water in the showers was just warm & they were push button. There was spiders and spider webs in the bathhouse.The sites are nice & large.

Only downside of the campground were the showers. You have to keep pushing a button to keep the small stream of water on (and it never gets hot enough). Also, the lights are on a timer and I ended taking part of shower in complete darkness. Other than that the place was beautiful and the staff is very friendly.

There was barely no wifi, although your publicity says there is some. You should also say it when cellulars are not getting any signal at all!

Liked the campground, but please turn off the fans in the bath house in temps of 30+ deg. and hopefully turn on the heat.

Friendly staff and very accommodating. The only thing that would make it better would be hiking/bike trails.

We loved our stay, we are always looking for a quiet unplugged weekend when our family goes camping. And it was off season and wonderful. All the staff were extremely helpful and all smiles.

We stayed Labor day weekend 2015. Max his wife and staff were very friendly and worked hard to keep the campground stocked and in good working order. Was nice and quiet with shade trees and a lake. All of the sites that say excess to the lake however not excisable due to weeds and water plant, but still give you a view of the lake. It is 35 miles from Huntsville.

Excellent - I used FHU- wished I had went to the back side of park with just e/w. Great people, beautiful grounds, huge lake. A little way off of main hwy, but worth the drive.
Sep 17, 2015
Just needed a place to stop for the night...found it to be a pleasant surprise...could do a week of nothing but enjoying the lake under your tall pines...and now I know there's a Bob Gibson's BBQ near by, I'm coming back

Great site and campground.

This was our first experience camping with our motorhome. Angie at the store was extremely helpful and very kind. The facilities were very clean and easy to get to. The campsites themselves were very well taken care of and cozy. There wasn't one site that was better than another site. They were all beautiful!! We will definitely be back!!!

We enjoyed a one night stay while on a long trip. If it was not raining we could of enjoyed camp grounds more. Staff very friendly.

We stayed here on our way up north in June and decided we liked it so much we returned on our way back home. We told friends of ours about your place and they stayed here as well. We will return next year on our way north. It is worth the 15 or so miles off the interstate. Thanks for making our stay so enjoyable. KB from Florida

We stayed 3 nights at this KOA. The staff were very helpful and freindly. My wife had 2 complaints with the bathrooms. You have to be continually turning the showers on because they are on a timer and there was no outlets for her hair drier

This former TVA property is a real gem! Staff was wonderful.

Nice people, beautiful campground, everything neat as a pin - couldn't ask for more. Always have a good time when we visit.

AS pretty and well maintained this KOA is, the lack of a beach/swim area in the campground portion of the Camp was disappointing. Personally to have to drive, almost out of the camp, from you coach was not appreciated, especially when you had to share the beach with the many day visitors. However, the kayaking was great, despite the heat.

Very nice rural setting. Great place to go if you have dogs Nice open space for dogs. Owners were very nice and helpful with travel directions!
