Our family of 4 (my husband and I, our 15 year old son and 5 year old daughter) go every year and sometimes more. Next trip is just a month away! We always go with my sister and her family along with my mom and dad get sites side-by-side. Love the lakeside sites - easy to pull in our camper... More

Absolutely beautiful campgrounds. The scenery is gorgeous and serene at any spot you get. The people are friendly and the staff is generous and helpful. Our family loves to stay here and we do as often as we can find an available campsite. This is where we make our best summer memories with our kids and grandbabies and even tho... More

We rented a pontoon boat for a girls' day on the lake and it was absolutely fabulous. Even though it was Memorial Day weekend, the prices were good and the lake was practically empty. It was beautiful and clean. For once, we didn't smell gross from swimming in the lake which was a really nice change! The service was excellent... More

This a fantastic surprise for any camper. This campground is surrounded by Cordell Hull lake and is so well groomed that it has a true resort feel. There are tennis courts, basketball courts and hiking trails. There are campsites suited to all types of camping from tents to large motorhomes. Most of the sites are over 65 feet long. All... More

We travel to this campground often because it is close to home and a great place to get away. Wonderful sites! Spacious and not crowded together. You are right next to the lake anywhere in this park and from most sites can see the lake. There are 155 sites but definitely make reservations as they are almost always full. The... More

My favorite campground in East or Central Tennessee. Sites are generally spacious, not a bad lake view site, and grounds are extremely well taken care of. Quite a few sites with WSE. A bit out in middle of nowhere... but that's a good thing, right??? Take your boat, hammock, bikes and kayaks. Only drawback is that to reserve a premium... More

We just returned home from a week-long camping trip at Defeated Creek Marina and Resort. We couldn't have asked for a better, nicer experience. The campsites have plenty of room and are not crowded together at all. The grounds look almost like a golf course! And, the lake surrounds the entire campground. We sat at our campsite and enjoyed the... More
