Yes there are full hook up sites and there is also a dump station. New owners are trying hard to make a nice stay for everyone. Trash cans at the RV sites emptied each day, fire rings on campsites, and small play area with a swing/slide. Wifi was free and strong signal. Bring your satellite dish as local stations are...

Rustic cabins with bare necessities, but the A/C was invaluable in July. Queen bed was quite comfortable. Bathrooms and showers were fine, just normal camping style. Rock shop was well supplied and interesting. Very convenient place to stay if you are going to Crater of Diamonds to dig.

The camp site was OK, but I have never stayed somewhere that was so unfriendly and hostile. The campsites for RV are tiny and have very little room between them. It appeared we were the only out-of-towners and the rest of the occupants lived there. Joyce, the owner, was so rude and hateful. We tried to keep quiet and out...

Where to begin. We paid for 3 nights only stayed 2 and that was 2 to many. Old travel trailers next to the shower looks like they are family and long term, trash all over by them. Smelled also, they need to update sewer system. They used 5 gl buckets to cover them. The cabins are just AC and bed...

This is the second time my husband and myself came to Murfreesboro to go looking for diamonds. The first time we stayed in the State Park Campground. We thought since we were traveling on a limited budget, we would try the Miner's Campground. We did not arrive until 5:30 only to find that the office closes at 5:00. Thank heavens...
