Default Harrison Bay State Park Questions

My family and I are going 11/18-11/22 for some fishing, campfire, and a good time. Has anyone been before that can share some tips on places to eat, see, etc.?
We have a 33ft fifth wheel and will be in loop A. Most reviews I've read say its a newer section and more room to maneuver around as the older loops (B and C) are very tight for larger rigs. I don't consider ours large but having never been I'm scared to chance it.
Any advice or tips are greatly appreciated!

It's been 30 years or so since I camped at Harrison Bay so not much I can help you with there. As far as places to eat, the Boathouse on Amnicola, Glen and Gene's Deli in Hixson are a couple of really good places. There's at least several threads on here about stuff to do in Chattanooga but off the top of my head: Chickamauga battlefield, Lookout Mtn. (Point Park, etc.), the Aquarium, TN Valley Railroad Musuem RR ride (been wanting to do this one), Frost Cutlery outlet store in Ooltewah area is pretty neat.

Also that time of year the fall colors should be pretty good (staring to turn a bit now) so the "Fall Color Cruise" on the TN river might be nice. I used to have an uncle from FL who'd come up every fall just for this.

Never camped there either. We did do a spring break trip to Chattanooga once. We toured the aquarium and Lookout Mtn as mentioned.
One other place I really enjoyed was Racoon Mtn Caverns;

The Racoon Mtn hydroelectric plant was neat to see. We got to go down the elevator inside the mountain to see it. They don't let you do that anymore for some reason. You can still go to the Visitor Center;
