Cardens Bluff Campground, Tennessee

Our family was so disappointed in this campground! Last year (2010) during our visit it was wonderful, however this years visit was appalling to say the least! The bathrooms are disgusting and the grounds were littered. The only place you can walk is on the graveled or paved areas due to the entire campground being covered in Poison Oak. Oh and thatís not the worst of it, as a matter of fact after you donít think it can get much worse the roaches start to invade. Yep, Roaches and Iím not talking about just one or two! (BTW the bug spray you bring for Mosquitoes will have no effect on these, even if you spray them directly, they just keep coming!)
The host is rude, so if you think
    there will be any singing by the campfire youíre mistaken. You will promptly be asked to keep quiet, by an armed ranger the host sends your way. I wish the park ranger had been more interested in getting rid of the drunks running
 around than pleasing the host. Needless to say all we could handle of that campground was one night. If your looking for a great campground consider going to Roan Mountain State Park. Says Anonymous (Sat, 25 Jun 2011)
