“Great COE Campground”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

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 site, it's about as easy as winning the lottery...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

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 view of the lake with our morning coffee and at sunset. We could walk to the water with our kayak and enjoyed paddling around the beautiful lake. One day, we hiked. Another day, we enjoyed playing at the beach area with our little grandson. There are playgrounds, tennis courts, and a volleyball court. So, you're never lacking for fun things to do. The bathhouse and restroom facilities were very clean. The entire experience was so positive!! We can't wait to go back!
