Chester Frost Park

Reviewed By gardener19464 - Pottstown, Pennsylvania

This is a wonderful park. It has a large day use area with pavilions, swimming area, playground, boat ramps and tennis courts. We drove through the day use area to get to the campground at the rear of the park. The campground is used for the county fair so if you want to camp here you may want to check on those dates. I imagine getting a site then would be near impossible. The campground itself is very nice with multiple bath houses and playgrounds throughout. The sites range from some that are right on top of each other to some that are situated very nicely with great views of the lake. I would have given it five stars except for two things. 1- when we checked in we were asked if we had ever been here. When we replied "no" we were given a map of our he campground, no information on what was available throughout the park. We discovered the tennis courts by accident. 2- some of the sites are poorly set up and down right dangerous. We reserved online. Having never been here my husband chose one by the lake which said it was long enough for our class A motorhome. When we arrived we found a set of stairs leading down to a flat area where the table and fire ring were located. Seems nice, right? Well, in order to allow other vehicles by we had to position our vehicle right at the edge of the macadam. We couldn't line it up with the stairs or we would have had a huge drop down to the first step. So we ended up placing the door to the side of the stairs and my husband built a "landing area" for us using large pieces of wood he carries for leveling he rig. Our entire stay I was worried one of us would end up hurting ourselves on this makeshift step. When my 13 year old son stood next to the step on our rig the step came up to his hip. This shows you what a drop it was. A beautiful park and I would recommend it but be careful about which site you reserve.

Harrison Bay State Park

Reviewed By Susan M

Don't be fooled when booking Loop B pull through sites. "Moderate incline" and "Slight incline" both equate to challenges getting level and even more challenges hooking back up when departing. The slope was so great on our site (B6) that our 5th wheel almost tipped over ... LONG WAYS. The pictures don't do justice to how extreme the incline is on the different camp sites. When chatting with fellow campers we heard about others having to get tow trucks to extricate from camp sites. If HBSP would make some improvements, this would be a great place. The bath house was typical of some parks. Toilets that needed attention, showers with limited hot water, spiders, wasps... The one staff member we spoke with was nice. We won't be back.

Bear Trace at Harrison Bay

Reviewed By michaelhB5349OO - Hixson

very nice course with excellent greens. Nice environment with wild life including nesting eagles. A bit expensive compared to some of the surrounding courses. Some time it is crowded in the summer but worth playing.

This is a great place for hiking, kayaking, or a picnic. The gem of all is a beautiful house that can be rented for special events such as weddings, baby showers, reunions, etc. It has a large party room, a large deck, two kitchens , rest rooms; all at a very affordable price. And , not to mention - free parking and a dog park. Check it out for your next gathering.

Fairmount Orchard

Reviewed By Paul K

We come here often because it's so close to us, but honestly it's worth it even if it were 10 miles away. All of the apples in the "bags" are perfect and great tasting. Our favorite is the Jonagolds. Cider is fresh and also delicious. Our only place now for apples in season!

Horsin Around

Reviewed By Kris B - MN

I wish I could go carve a carousel animal! This place was great, the people working spend time to tell you all about how to carve the animals. If you want to spend a week, you can pay and learn the trade. We just went and toured and took photos of the works in progress. There happened to be a group touring at the same time, so we just toured along with them. It was informal - no talks or anything planned, just friendly discussions and demonstrations.

Love this place. Excellent vendors with a great eclectic selection of things. I have been here many times and always find something nice and prices are very reasonable. They also carry a few great lines if chalk and milk paint. Gave me advice and great ideas on using the paint.

Booker T. Washington State Park

Reviewed By FlaHarlock - Tavares, Florida

I went to college in Chattanooga back in the '80s and used to come here often just to relax and get away. It's so beautiful right on Chickamauga Lake. The facilities are weathered but the park itself is pretty much the same. There's a nice pier, picnic pavilions, and bathroom facilities. Quiet and serene. Great place for skipping rocks. I'm pleased to find that it's still a great park to just relax and get away.

The Mountain Opry, a Friday night gig for countless bluegrass and old-time country musicians over the last three decades, celebrated its 33rd anniversary on September 7th 2012. The Mountain Opry takes place in the Walden's Ridge Civic Center, 2501 Fairmount Pike on Signal Mountain on Friday nights. Admission is free.

Reviewed By MumMum3 - Hixson, Tennessee

I have been here many times. It takes place every Friday night year round. Bluegrass, gospel, and country music performed by multiple groups. Always different. Sometimes a little dancing happens on stage, sometimes pretty good talent, sometimes not but it's free or you can make a donation. We always take any out of town guests we have because it makes for a perfect evening to drive up the mountain and experience some Tennessee roots.
