We booked one of their guest trailers for this particular visit, staying in "'Rocky Top." It's perfect for a couple: living area, eat-in kitchen, full bath, nice bedroom, and a covered front porch with a grill available. The trailer was clean and well-stocked with pots, pans, tableware, sheets, towels, etc. Cable/satellite is not available, but we did pick up local channels on television.
We enjoyed the walking trail, and had fun exploring some of the facilities: a clubhouse with lots of board games, a pool table, paperback books, etc. There is a beach volleyball court which seems to get LOTS of use! There is also a great bath house for those who are camping and don't have these facilities in a tent. There is a small country store, too, where one can buy soda, ice cream, ice, and breakfast or lunch items.
The pool area is nice. Even though you can soak up the sun, there is some shade available at all times. Since I'm very white, my hubby and I chose a shady corner! There is also a hot tub
The people at Rock Haven are friendly and accepting. We saw all types of bodies, and I never once felt uncomfortable with my 43-year-old-mother-of-two figure!
I experienced only two things at Rock Haven that bothered me: the first is that nearly EVERYONE I came into contact with seemed to be a fairly heavy smoker. Since I have some asthma issues, I was forced to leave the pool area on a couple of occasions because of cigarette smoke. There was no way to be in the pool area and avoid it.
The second is that some of the "regulars" at Rock Haven appear to be heavy drinkers. I have no problem with people drinking at a resort--I do it myself. However, several of the folks around the pool had drunk enough to become extremely loud and belligerent. Their language got pretty "salty," too. This bothered me because there were some children around, since Rock Haven is a family nudist resort.
I would recommend visiting Rock Haven during a non-holiday, less crowded time.
