Went over and spent the night at Montgomery Bell State Park very nice accommodations. Drove over to Charlotte Tennessee the next morning look at some of the old buildings.

Look at the campground map and it will show which are creekside. I liked the one at the north end of that group (with sewer) site 100, but they all look good. I think we stayed on 116 once and liked it also.
