We did a day at Salt Lick Creek and I didnt realize a lot of campgrounds have electricity. What are some of the best ones to visit with electricity for a couple day trip. I assume Falls Creek Falls is a must.

Also, what should we bring. Some of the people there said cots are better than an air mattress because when it gets cold at night, the air mattress tends to deflate some. Any advice is appreciated.

Tennessee State Parks

From what you have said so far a Tent ? Bug spray- good shoes or hiking boots - no flip flops. The link has all the parks. The parks have "FREE" things too do on certain days /weekends. You may want too check out the free programs. They have cabins -- primitive camping. They all have electric for RV. Tent Camping check the park. Leaving any food gum - pop out any were near you site at night will bring in the animals. Same for storing food open in the car. If a bear is hungry it will get into the car. Please don't litter and enjoy the park system. Falls Creek Falls is a excellent park miles of paved paths for bikes and walking. and Standing Stone is a excellent park very small - Cumberland Mountain is also a excellent park. But May -- Oct it's busy. Cummings Falls & Burgess Falls has no camping. Edgar Evans State Park is on Center Hill Lake. Plan were too go and book early the parks fill up fast when school out. Bottle water too carry with you.

Falls Creek Falls 20,000 acres.

I really enjoyed Reelfoot in West TN. At some points in the year you can see bald eagles nesting in the wild.
