“Lots of activities, friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2012

Can we say Jumping Pillow!!! The kids love the choice of activities at this place - playground, outdoor jumping pillow, game room with pool tables (beware of malfunctioning equipment), disc golf, hiking trails!!!, gem stone panning, tether ball, swimming pool (closed in winter)..

Friendly staff. They have a very small staff (in winter) so don't expect the office to open early. They lock the place during daylight frequently, but just find one of them out and about and they will drop everything to help you. Laundry opens at 10am but again, just ask and the staff are very accommodating.

Cabins are cozy and small - typical KOA cabins if you know them. But hey we aren't here to stay in the cabin!

We stayed here for 6 days in a motor home. Directions to park are well marked from the interstate. It is a small park with shaded sites in the back and sites in the front are more sunny. Upon arrival the owner and staff were very friendly and helpful. Very close to Lookout Mtn. and Chattanooga but it seems worlds away in a quiet relaxing rural area. Laundry facilities were very clean. People in site beside us sat outside with their dog and allowed the dog to continually bark for several minutes. The owner immediately took care of the situation (without us asking) and no more barking. If you are looking for a paved sites, noise, congestion and an urban atmosphere, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a small town family atmosphere, beautiful mountain views, quiet breezes and a place to get away from it all, this is the place for you. Good base camp for sightseeing in the area. Would stay here again.

Cute park with out the noise of everyday life. No jumbo jets flying over or highway noise. Just nature and the wind blowing. This camp is so close to Lookout Mountain and Downtown Chattanooga that its hard to believe it so quiet. The hosts were the best we had ever encountered. I'm not normally a person who writes comments but this park is worth it. We already have another reservation placed this year. We stayed here in a travel trailer.

We had mixed reviews driving up to this place... it seemed old and rundown... but we decided to stay anyway and im glad we did...staff VERY NICE, showers nice and clean... pool closed for winter..the back sites are better than the front.. its just a parking lot made into camp spots.. I would stay again, but Manchester KOA is way newer and nicer

We stayed here for the Warrior Dash in Manchester, but also wanted to do some sight seeing in Chattanooga. This KOA is convenient to both. When we first arrived I frantically started searching for another place on my IPad. You have to drive around to the back of the office to actually see the nice sites. Our site was in the less desirable area, however, it turned out great! The staff is very helpful and friendly. Bath houses are fine. It takes a little getting used to --- to understand the pine tree bark around all the structures is intentional as the decor.

I read all the bad reviews before I went, but when I stayed their with 3 kids for 2 nights, they had the best time you could imagine. All the kids there were playing on the huge pillow thing, swimming in the pool, and building campfires. The staff couldn't be nicer. Yes, there is a rooster, so turn on a fan for gray noise...really what are you complaining about? I didn't find it too crowded. The showers and bathrooms were VERY clean. I was surprised at how clean. I think if you have kids, you'll really appreciate this place...they can't wander off too far and there is so many people, you're not gonna get any monkey business...too many witnesses.

You can get coffee in the camp store for 50 cents in the morning and they have the usual things you might need (ice, supplies, etc). All the folks I ran into were courteous and polite, some friendly. Lot of campers talking to each other. (this is the another good thing about being within earshot of oneanother)

Basic facilities were good and staff was nice. Other than that, they crammed way too many sites on the side of a hill, so there is limited privacy and people are crammed on each other. Also, there is apparently some private land near there where there is a rooster that cockadoodle doo'd at 5 AM (in the dark) for an hour each morning. The second night we were there, there was a dog barking ALL NIGHT (same neighbor I believe... not a guest's dog... so the problem is probably there all the time). How they haven't addressed this issue is beyond me, as we were all complaining about it. I am an early riser and I was ticked off at waking up to a screeching chicken 90 minutes before daylight.
