Our priority would be to find a campground where the rv sites are not all right on top of each other either. Spread out amongst a wooded area would be ideal. Just so long as it is located somewhere near I-75 between Chattanooga and Atlanta. Sort of along our pathway back to Florida.

Cloudland canyon state park?

How about Cloudland Canyon State Park? Is anyone familiar with it and can you get a 42' rig w/toad there?

I'm not sure about campgrounds, but if you can walk well, I HIGHLY recommend touring Ruby Falls. It is breathtaking. Rock City is right down the road and it was awesome too. Chattanooga is great, I love it.

Yes, we are definitely hikers. I had been to Ruby Falls as a kid and I am anxious to go back again. We ended up booking a camp spot at Cloudland State Park. Looks amazingly beautiful. Also looks like some good hiking and trails there as well.

Cloudland Canyon is beautiful. No sewers or wifi.
Raccoon Mountain is very crowded, I think. But that's me.

KOA Lookout Mountain WEST is beautiful and very close to Chattanooga and Lookout Mountain.

Beware of KOA Lookout Mountain SOUTH which is right off I75 in Ringgold. Not friendly. Read the reviews.

The Holiday Trav-L-Park does get good reviews but I only did a drive thru so I cant comment.

There is a Chester Frost park that is lovely and gets great reviews.

By far, Id check out KOA Lookout Mountain WEST. Its clean, on beautiful Sand Mountain, close to everything, nice pools, a jumping pillow for the kids, clean bathrooms, showers, laundry. The staff is awesome.

We fulltimed there for four months and cried when we had to move.

Thanks for the feedback. We did end up booking Cloudland. We don't need the sewer or wifi, so we should be fine. I'll keep in mind the KOA west next time we are in that vicinity and maybe we'll check it out while there this time. We do need a place for a 1 nighter when we go to Illinois and that is about the half way point, so good to know.

Cloudland is lovely. There is a restaurant there called Canyon Grill. Just a heads up, it is super expensive and the food isn't that good.
Make sure you take the road across Lookout Mountain into Chattanooga. The view is phenomenal. You will be amazed at the absolute shacks up there with views! lol! Id live in a shack with a view but not for a half million dollars!

The KOA is just north of Cloudland Canyon, also in Trenton, Georgia.

I see you are a dog person. My beloved German Shepherd puppy died suddenly while we were at the KOA, and he is now buried there. If you get to the Frisbee field and see Odin's grave, that's my boy. :sniff:

We are definitely dog people. I show and train dogs for conformation. Our two boys (great dane and Labrador retriever) love to travel and it's one of the main reasons we bought an RV so that we could take them along. It makes our trips so much more rewarding and fun.

I will say hello to your GSD's grave if we see it. I am so sorry for your loss.

We were there this summer twice. We plan to use it again because we really enjoyed the area. I will take the time to visit Odin with my Gunny and Thor. Thor would certainly be an appropriate visitor for Odin.

We were there on June 28th and then again on July 6th. On the 6th it was rainy and we were in the back in spot next to the kids park.

Agreed, great staff there.

We were just up and across from the grassy area by the pool on same side as the showers. We walked our dogs down to the Frisbee park at night to let the GSD's run and play ball.

Anyway, sorry to hijack the thread.

Its a nice park. Good people.
