Right on the Tennessee river! The camp ground is very nice. They don't take reservations so come early!

On the other side there is a marina, restaurant and a fairly new playground area. Dogs are required by law to be... More

This is a very good park for this area. The marina is very good and has transient docks as well as long term. The Rv park is right on the river in a very quite and peaceful back section of the park.

Great place for a picnic along the river or better yet, eat at the restaurant at the adjacent marina. Good food. Good view. Took my mother for a nice relaxing day to Florence. This was a nice ending to a great day!

We're staying in the campgrounds and have the most beautiful view across the Tennessee River. It's crowded and there are tons of families picnicking in the park, boats running up the river, and right now the sky is blue and we have just a little more than a gentle breeze!
