My seven-year old and I went to Carter Caves for a few days of camping and fun. The staff all around the park was very kind and helpful. Mini-golf was fun, as was the Cascade Caves tour. A recent flash flood resulted in closing the waterfall portion of the tour. We were able to request a change in camping sites upon seeing our current location was a little congested. We had site 106, and it worked out well. The grounds were well cared for, except for the road system in the park. Watch out for all of the potholes! We didn't have much luck fishing, but it was still quality time together. The playground at the campground was very clean, and we enjoyed walking from the campground to mini-golf. We reserved our site online, and it worked very well. There is no wi-fi at the campfround, but there is at the lodge. Also, we were able to get cell phone service almost everywhere in the park. We went to the pool both days of our visit, and it felt very good. I wish they had a slide, but they do have a section with a high dive. They had lifeguards on duty during our visit, but they are about to limit the days lifeguards on duty beginning 8/13/12. The gift shop is very nice in case you want a souvenir. Great place for some family time!
