    All TN state park reservations can be made online by going to "Tennessee State Parks website" or an app for TN SP on smartphone. This park is located in middle TN on the TN river. The park itself is fairly small and is in two parts. The main park has a few hiking and mountain bike trails, basketball goal, playgrounds, screened in pavilion that can be reserved, water and electric sites, and one restroom with showers. The other part of the park is the "Primitive campground". I stayed last weekend at primitive site and took these pics to share. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] This is site number 1. It is probably my favorite because of the size and the fact that its kind of has a peninsula sticking out the end of it another hundred feet or so where you can fish all around three sides. There is a boat ramp at this campground and many of these sites have plenty of room to park your boat and camper on them. All these sites have tables, fire rings, and grills. There is no water or electricity anywhere on this part of the park, but the ranger told me that everyone is welcome to go about a mile to the showers in the main park. Port-a-potties are available in primitive camp. This site is the farthest from the main channel of the river but closest to the boat ramp that did get a little noisy Saturday morning.Primitive sites on this side of the park are only 8.00. Money very well spent.

    We were there at the beginning of April and stayed at the main campground bc the road to the primitive sites was under water! We had a good time fishing and flying some kites over near the covered picnic shelter. The ranger there was extremely friendly and the kids loved him.
    The main campground area was not very kid-friendly. The campsites there are at three different half-circles right off the main road. The kids couldnt ride their bikes at the park at all. The roads leading to the campsites are very hilly. The sites were EXTREMELY level which was nice, but they were all very steep if you got off the camper pad. This was dangerous for our smaller children. Another downside was that the two playgrounds were at least a mile and a half away from the camp sites in either direction.
    The best part of the campground at Moustail was the bathhouse. They were very nice and clean. There was also laundry facilities there.
    When we return, we will be staying at the primitive sites for sure!
