Etowah River Campground

Since this website seems to cover the Appalachian and Blue Ridge Mtn. campsites, I feel this is an appropriate place for the following review of our recent visit to the Etowah River Campground.

The campground seems nice enough when we arrived and although we could have been a little closer to the river, the area had plenty of room for our three tents. The water was okay but the pressure was severely lacking. The kids had a playground to go to and this is exactly what we like is to let them loose while the wife and I get a chance to relax a bit.

This would not be the case as we soon found out that the owner failed to mention that the better part of the campground was rented out that weekend to a company that was bent on enjoying themselves with loud music and adult beverage. It got so bad that there was no rest for us at all the first night as the drinking and yelling went on til 2:00 in the morning. The next night was a little better as everything shut down around 11 that night.

Overall, this campground would be a decent place to come to if the noise and drinking was controlled or kept out. We suggest if go ask if there is going be a large group there before making your reservations. If our recent stay is the norm for the campground we have to give it a big thumbs down.
