Very good place for families and anyone. There was a lot to do but the pool was closed when we went but still stuff to do. People were pretty friendly but not as friendly as most parks. Four different campgrounds to camp at. We were in A campground but we walked all but C campground. Everyone seemed to be having a great time. The Bay was all around so there was a lot to do there. I would go back if I go back that way.
Large recreational park! I don't have a boat or golf clubs, so I hike! The 4.3 mile Bay Point Loop trail is a canopy covered, flat scenic trail that weaves around small peninsulas with views of the Tennessee river. For a hot July day, the bugs weren't bad either. Surprising! Oh, lots of deer, too.
