Reviewed 2 May 2010

We spent a week here in mid-April, all of the SP in Tennessee that we have camped in have been great, but this one especially. The campsite's are private and most in deep woods. Several pull thru sites easily accommodated our 36' 5th wheel, as TN does not reserve their sites, plan to arrive early to get a prime site as they seem to get busy on weekends. There was so much to do, the Duck River runs through the park, the Lodge has skeet shooting, a golf course and a restaurant (not the best food), but several neat places to eat in Chapel Hill and near by Lewisburg. This was the safest I have ever felt in a park, the rangers make rounds every hour and they were still a presence when we turned in for the night. Great Park, Loved it here

Stayed: April 2010, travelled as a couple

We arrived at the Horton Inn (busload of 50) and all of our room keys were available, so we didn't have to wait to unwind. The only problem I personally encountered was a mix up on the room, but everything was quickly resolved and we ended up staying in one of the cabins. The cabin was great, with the exception of the centipede that was in the kitchen sink, but hey we were in a park, right?

All of the staff, park rangers included, were very friendly and accomodating.

The only meal that I actually ate on the on campus restaurant was the seafood buffet. It was very good and had a great variety of choices, not bad for $12.95. The only reason I couldn't give an excellent review was because of the rooming mixup.

Oh and please note, as of October 1, 2007, Tennesse is a smoke free state and that includes state parks.

Reading the review of the restaurant reminded me of our experience last summer. We found our cabin spacious and nice enough once the helpful staff finally removed the small hornets' nest between the window & the window screen. The cigarette odor took a few more days (& a can of room deodorizer). Apparently cigarettes aren't toxic to hornets.

The park & staff were pleasant. Hopefully they've replaced last summer's restaurant manager, however. A group of about a dozen of us called ahead, then went there for a weekday breakfast. We came near the end of the breakfast hours, & pretty much had the place to ourselves. The night before the manager had decided not to offer the breakfast buffet, and the regular cook was out sick. The "assistant cook" who's normal job was to set up the salad bar for the lunch & dinner buffets, was in charge of cooking breakfast. Apparently this was not his area of expertise. About a half hour after we ordered, some of us began voluntering to help out in the kitchen. Unfortunately, regulations prohibited it.

About 15 minutes later, our orders slowly began emerging from the kitchen, one at a time, at roughly five minute intervals, at a wide variety of temperatures. Getting all the food hot--even on one plate--was apparently beyond this cook's expertise. So was that well known culinary challenge, French toast. After a rough majority of the orders were on the table, the waitress informed us that she'd be gone for a while to cook French toast.

The poor waitress did her best, and the hostess was kind enough to reduce the bill when we asked, but we would have rather had hot food, properly prepared & served promptly.

Local friends tell us that the lunch & dinner buffets are usually quite good, but before going for breakfast on a weekday you might want to walk in, check out the buffet, & ask about the cook.

We recdntlyl had a wedding very close to Henry Horton and most of the family and close friends stayed there. Lodging was fine. Clean rooms and hospitable desk crew.

The restaurant was a different story. The food itself may have been fine if you could have gotten enough of it.
The size of the facility would indicate they can handle a lot of people. We had a party of approximately 40 people, and had called in advance. We were told, not a problem, the restaurant would be able to handle it.
They coudnt, although the ONE waitress did her best to take care of us.The buffet line was woefully inadequate. For instance, though I tried several time, I never was able to get any scambled eggs.
When asked to speak to the manage, we were told she was off for the weekend and left word not to call her at home.
I had heard the food was not very good the day before when some of the guests had eaten there. The modest charge was not worth it when the food was not even available.]It seems part of the problem was a lack of staff on a holiday weekend when guests would have been there. The Inn was full.
