I would like to make G-10 and have a couple of questions. Are dogs allowed in the park and is there tent camping available?

thanks Jeff

Jeff,

I can't answer your question about pets. You could call them and ask. Here is a link to the marina's website: http://www.halesbarmarina.com

As for tent camping, it does appear to be available nearby. Marion County park is on the other side of the river, on a small peninsula on a protected bay. I've seen it from the water a couple of times in the last few weeks, when I've taken my boat up there. I have not driven to it, though it is very close to Hales Bar Marina. It looks like a pretty pleasant place to me. From what I could tell, it looks like tent and RV camping are both available.

Here are a few photos. In the screenshot from Google Maps, you can see Marion County park in green, not far from the marina. Also there are a couple of photos I shot of the park from the boat, showing tents, etc... as well as the bay.

I hope this is helpful.

Mike, I emailed them and hope to hear from them soon. My dog likes to travel with me so I hope to be able to bring him with me and stop for a couple of days on my way to Florida.

Contact HB I think they have tent camping. I know that Butch & Paula Barto have brought their dog before.

Will they not let you put up a tent on an RV spot? That's what I was planning to do.

A couple of years ago Bob and Leda Sorci set-up their tent right down by the dock. There is a shower and laundry near by. This is one reason we went to HB. They've got it.

Called Hales Bar just now. They don't allow tent camping so it looks like we will be staying somewhere else unfortunately.

Left a phone and facebook message with Marion County Park. They are under new management this year according to Facebook. If we stay there I might bring the jon boat to ferry us across to the floating cabins at hales bar.

For anyone interested Marion County Park is $10 a night for a primitive tent site. They will not let you set up a tent on an RV site. I really don't understand that. If I am paying for the site why does it matter whether I am tent or RV camping. If I can find a decent battery operated fan maybe we will stay there.

PM Butch Barto. He may let you hide the tent behind his RV.
