The 150 mile drive from east-central Tennessee to south-central Tennessee was easy aside from some major construction we encountered between Columbia and Natchez Trace Parkway. Even with that we arrived at the campground without any problem.
This place clearly needs upgrading: primarily road work, more full hook up sites, 50 amp electric (there’s none), and fresh gravel on the sites. One surprising plus is good WiFi. I think it’s the best WiFi we’ve ever had in a Thousand Trails facility. Over the weekend it got sluggish due to, I imagine, heavy use but the rest of the time it’s been pretty good. My Verizon phone signal has been rather poor, but using my Wilson Sleek signal booster it is usable. We’ve seen lots of folks sitting in the Town Hall parking lot at the top of the hill using their phones.
To us, the draw here is the campground’s being so close to Natchez Trace Parkway. I don’t see it as a destination park aside from it being a good spot to let the kids have freedom to roam and enjoy the playground or simply as a place to enjoy some downtime. I know efforts are being made to catch up on various maintenance concerns and increase the appeal of this park. I’ll come back when passing through the area again and I hope that when I do I’ll see evidence of that having taken place.
