My daughter plays high school golf and will be playing a golf match over there on Thursday. I have never stayed at Harrison Bay State Park. We live close to Chattanooga. I will personally go over to the camp ground and check it out. I had planned on doing it anyways as my coach is 37 feet and was wanting to know the same info. I will report back next week.

We were there last week in CG C site 25 on the water in a 36 DP. We found the roads in the CG to be tight with trees & our site was very unlevel front to rear & we called the park in advance of making our reservation & asked about level. The site had had 30a with water. The 30a wasn't the best. They have a bad raccoon there also. Beautiful lake, great offroad bike trail 4.6mi, a restaurant by the marina on site & plenty of folks enjoying the fishing.

Thanks everyone and thanks Heater looking forward to your thoughts. I was online looking and it seems a lot of people had problems getting into it without rubbing trees Branches I am not looking to rub trees. I am surprised to find there are not a lot of RV parks in the area.

Thanks

Chester Frost is a nice park. It is about 30 min away from Harrison Bay but it is easily accessible and big rig friendly. It is also on the lake. It is actually right across the river from Harrison bay but there is no really good way to commute from one side of the lake to the other. We do not have very many options in the area. Chattanooga is a great place to visit / vacation. There is also a KOA in Cleveland, TN but I know nothing about it. I will take a peek on Thursday at HBSP.

Heater I have been looking at Www.chattacamp.com (Chattanooga Holiday Trav-L-Park,) it has full hook ups and is 10 minutes or so from my buddies house boat. It is prolly just standard Rv park but most of the time we will be sight seeing! Thanks for you time and info.

We have stayed at Holiday Travel Park many times. It is in town and close to most attractions. Cloudland Canyon is n NW Georgia, I would est. 25 miles out of town. Cleveland Tenn KOA is approx. 25 mi out. Raccoon Mt is OK. I have a 38' and I have a problem at any of these. Oct is a busy time in the Smokies.

We have stayed at raccoon mountain campground in Chattanooga. It isn't bad but definitely nothing to write home about. We have also stayed at Harrison Bay SP and the roads are very tight but its very pretty. No sewer hookups though. There are several KOA's in the area. We will be staying at one Trenton, GA on Labor Day. It's not far from Chattanooga. I believe it's called Lookout Mtn. Chattanooga West. There is a very nice drive in movie about a mile away.
