Red Clay State Historic Park

Reviewed By Janie B

A walk through the natural surroundings. Beautiful historic area. A place where the Cherokee learned of the loss of their lands and the Trail of Tears began. The Red Clay Council grounds and parks was the last seat of the Cherokee government. Lots of history in this area. Log cabin and inn rentals for tourist. Also hiking trails for the more adventurous wanderer. Go check it out and enjoy....

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.

Imagination Station and Pavilion

Reviewed By Merlin W

I take my great grandson to visit this park often because it incorporates so many interesting activities for him to play on safely. Slides, swings, bars, Teeter totters, play trains, and a real train caboose. There is one problem though he wants to stay the whole day and does not want to leave.

The Honors Course

Reviewed By HDFLHPI - Weatherford, Texas

If you are fortunate enough to be invited to play The Honors, take it. It's a terrific property. It's allure is in the combination of exclusivity, and understated quality. The course fits the topography like a pair of yoga pants on an Lululemon model. We stayed at the cottages, ate a couple meals on property and the table service was old Southern charm. The Honors has a well provisionied pro shop, and once the practice facilities are done, the entire experience will be world class.

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.

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.

Old Stone Church

Reviewed By SPN21 - Ringgold, Georgia

The Old Stone Church was completed in 1850 to house a congregation formed in 1837. It has been a way station for many visitors over the years. The original pastor was William Hall Johnson. The location was the site of a hospital during the Civil War for both Confederate and Union soldiers wounded at the nearby Battle of Ringgold Gap. Union soldiers used it as a stable afterwards. Many of the Union troops involved in the early days of the Atlanta campaign used the Ringgold 'station', at a point near the church as a jump off point to move south towards the battlegrounds leading up to the fall of Atlanta.

The structure now houses a small museum dedicated to artifacts pertinent to the history of the area. The original pews and altar are still in the building. The hymn "Leaning on the Everlasting Arms" was first sung in this church.

This is a worthwhile place to visit and full of history. It sits less than a mile off Exit 345 on Interstate 75 (I-75) and is an ideal spot to stop over for a picnic lunch and a visit to the museum. There is a lovely park adjacent to the grounds with a picnic shelter and playground. Downtown Ringgold is not far away and is a great place to visit. The old train depot downtown is another Civil War attraction near where the 'great locomotive chase' of 1862 ended, and, the steam driven locomotive, the General, was recaptured.

Do not miss the opportunity to visit the Old Stone Church.
