Is there a Web site to help choose the best sites within a campground?

Campground we are going to in March has 200 plus varied sites in 5 different areas (A through E). Any websites that might help us choose one area over another or guide us to a great site? I tried RV parkfinder, nothing there was helpful. RV parks app also had no reviews. It is fall creek falls in pikeville, TN if that helps.

Dave, the only thing I can think of that might help would be RVparkreviews.com, and that would not normally mention the choice of one site over another. Sorry I can't help!

Look at park's web site for some idea as to location of sites. Still doesn't tell you all you'd like to know, unfortunately.

Download Goggle earth and then you can zoom in and see what it looks like, you can go back and look at past years and find photos where there is no leaves on the trees so you can see better. I do this everytime I look at a new place and I actually find the spot I want on google earth and relate it to the resort map and then make reservations. Work great

Good idea to use google earth. I did find out section D is the newest with good reviews on it.

We were there late last summer. Nice campground, but some the the sites are impossible to get level in. We had to move after two days when another site came available. If you are still interested I will try to look at a map of the campground (if I can find one) and find the sites that we remember as more level.

Some CG's use reserveamerica to make reservations, and their website also has pictures of each site, W/ a description, so you have enough information before making your reservations.

What one person considers the perfect site, another person would hate it. Some like near a playground, others like near a bath house or near the water, lots of trees or no trees. Best you can hope for is a general description and you can make your pick.

Call the campground, the person at the front desk should be able to help you decide which site you would like depending on your preferences.

That would be a great app to get site reviews per campground. Someone will do it. The nice thing about google earth over just regular maps is you can also measure a distance on earth so if your not sure about the site length you can measure it or distance to other amenities

We stayed in the B loop and the site we were in we could not get level. There are others on the B loop that were also unlevel. As I recall, the D loop has really good, level sites if you are able to find one open there. Don't know what you are driving/towing, but approaching from Crossville is much better than from Pikeville. Much straighter roads with much less steep climbs.
