RV spots are to small to uneven so watch your step. I had a rude lady beating on the RV door while I was taking a nap with my two year old grandson while the rest of the family were out walking. They also where the people who were in charge. When I say beating she was relentlessly beating on the door until she woke the baby up just to tell me we haven’t paid for our spot 33 for the night and if someone comes in saying it’s there spot we would have to leave. What it amounted to was we couldn’t get our RV into 32 because of how small their RV spots are so when we first got there my daughter and her husband change from 32 to 33 for the two nights we stayed and the girls on the computer only changed it for one night. A hour before this happened someone tried to back their RV in 32. They left in frustration. So the girls in the office probably made a mistake and we paid for it by a rude woman. The kids found glass in the creek. We drove 3 plus hours to get there. I would go back if I live within 30 minutes but other then that no way.

Very nice park, I had my sons 8th birthday party here. Park was clean, pavilion we had was nice. The playground was clean and maintained, the parking at first when we first arrived was very limited as other people had every parking spot, this made us park in some uneven areas, but that is very minor. Overall very good experience and recommend this place for any party or event.

Make it a 3.75 star rating. Campground #1 is in need of some upgrades. The sites and pads are small, uneven, and close together (I've had more room in some private RV parks). Campground #2 is in the middle of a major overhaul, hopefully they'll redo #1 in the future. There is a new restroom/shower facility in #1 which is quite good. If you have a small pop-up or are tent camping #1 would be fine, but it's a challenge for larger rigs. The restaurant was rather disappointing. The food and service were mediocre at best. The park itself is beautiful. It has many miles of hiking trails, and Shoal Creek is very pretty, with many little stairstep falls. There are several pavilions and picnic areas, many of which were in use the weekend I was here.

Davy Crockett State Park is a fun park. The visitors center is the first building when entering the park. We stopped at the visitors center to pick up some maps of the area. We parked by a playground next to campground 1. From there we hit the trailhead for the Shoal Creek trail. The trail follows Shoals Creek to Davy Crockett Falls. Its not much of a falls but a fun area to play in the water. The trail was 3 miles round trip. We drove through campground 1 and it seemed like the sites were spread out fairly well. Most sites were flat but a few requires a lot of leveling. Campground 2 was shut down for improvements . There is a covered bridge over Shoal Creek. We visited Lake Lindsey where you can fish for bass, blue gill and catfish. You can rent a jon boat or a small paddle pontoon boat that seats four. Boat rentals were 2.50 per person for 30 minutes. We rented a paddle boat and floated to the dam and spill way. Just beyond the spill way is a fairly nice waterfall. From the lake you can view an eagles nest.
