Misty River Cabins & RV Resort was named small Tennessee Campground-of-the-Year at ceremonies in Nashville yesterday during a meeting of the Tennessee Association of RV Parks & Campgrounds (TNARVC).The park was so recognized for its accomplishments in campground operations, marketing, management, and industry unity. Owned and operated by Diane & Jimmy Felton, Misty River was transformed from a corn field into an RV resort just two years ago.It has all of the modern conveniences that the camper of today is looking for.Misty River has 72 large, wide sites, 54 of which are pull thrus. All are full hookup with cable TV and free WiFi service.The bathhouse is state-of-the-art with large private bathrooms like you would find in a home.It was definitely built with the family in mind.Four of the bathrooms are handicap accessible with zero barrier showers. “We want families to make memories that last a lifetime. That way their kids, grandkids, and great-grandkids will want to make their own memories camping”, said Jimmy Felton. The resort uses guest reviews to help them get a non-biased camper review of their facilities. So far, they have had 68 campers participate in the survey who have given them an overall rating of A with a grade of 4.8 out of a possible 5.Misty River also has a grade of A+ for cleanliness. As one camper noted: “This place is great.We pulled in late after the office had closed and we were still met by a member of the staff.He helped us with our setup and opened the store to get us a sewer hose.This resort has to be the best run and friendliest placed I have ever stayed.” The resort hosts the Cub Scout Pack and Boy Scout Troops and volunteers time at the Fall Heritage Festival & Old Timers Day in Townsend and also enjoys hosting rallies and fundraisers for several different local groups and organizations.Jimmy Felton is a TNARVC Board member.
