Chattanooga Area - Looking for Camp/RV Resort Recommendation

Planning a trip in October to see the change of the leaves. Does anyone have any recommendations for the Chattanooga area to Atlanta area for a good campground / RV type resort for a big rig?

Lookout mountain. West KOA was great for our 37ft fifth wheel... Quiet and close to Chattanooga.

We enjoyed 2 nights there in our 43' DSDP. There are limited spaces near the office for something that big. Don't make a wrong turn in the CG or you ARE going to be going down a steep hill before you get a chance to turn around and have to come back up it. Plan to unhook your toad in front of the office before you go to your site.

A nice scenic route off of I-59 and some back roads to get there too. Keep your eye on your toad. (Long story I care not to repeat. LOL)

Sky Boss, I'm definitely agree with your assessment on the KOA. Great place but insure you are aware where your taking your rig before heading down some of those roads.

I live in Chattanooga and work at Camping World. By far the best campground in the area is Holiday Trav-L-Park right off I75 at exit 1. Very clean and well ran. Good accomodations for any size RV, easy in and out. 5 miles fron Chattanooga city limit. Reservations and info 800-693-2877. Google them for complete info.

I was there several years ago. Nice little park. People were great. Did have an issue with the Power. Air Conditioner wouldn't work. Be sure to test before plugging in. They let me run my cord to the next site without making me move and had it fixed in a couple hours. It was my first pull with the HDT. Couldn't stay hooked up but they let me park the truck down the hill at no additional charge. I had my old F350 CC dually with me too and was able to park it behind the trailer. I'd stay again.

wow,i stayed there last year and I thought I could drive, but I found the sites very tight...I had a pull thru that was so tight getting out of with 3 trees( one on the right,one on the left and one across from me on my left) and a sign post,I unhooked and backed out and re hooked again....and I drove a truck for over 40 yrs....if this is the best that there is in the area...then I guess I have to skip the area...Chuck

Know it's not in area you mentioned! But Cove Creek Campground in Wear Valley TN is a great place. Right in the middle of all the areas to check out leaves changing!

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I am still not sure based on everyone's comments. Ideally we want to try to find somewhere that seems like it is off the beaten path but still very accessible to golf and other activities. We also want to see the change of the leaves but I would imagine that is everywhere you look.
