Project Description

With no upgrades since 1982, the campgrounds of Chattanooga’s popular state park were overdue for updates. Some renovations were needed for age-related issues. Others were needed to accommodate increased traffic, changes such as the larger RVs now common at the park, and provide for year-round campground usage.
