Amazing views and a very clean campground. Easy to get to, hook up and travel to Chattanooga. Kayaks were easy to launch right from the campsite.

Don't believe so.
HI, I was looking at the camping locations that you mentioned, and it looks to be all gravel, but in your photos, it appears that your tent is on asphalt. Which is it? We are novice campers and don't want to deal with gravel under our tent just yet...Thanks for any help.

Is there a lot of low hanging tree limbs that make it difficult for taller RV's? Also, are the sites easily accessible and large enough for a 40' 5th wheel? I read some reviews that said the roads in the campground were bad, have they been repaved? Thanks!
