We spend many summer afternoons at Chester Frost Park on Chickamauga Lake or “Chicka-mama” as the 3.5-year-old calls it. It’s like going to the beach for the boys–not so much for me.
Regardless, it’s a beautiful spot to spend a sunny day and keep the kids entertained well into the evening. (You may even get lucky with exhausted kids who crash in the car on the way home).
There’s a wide beach and a huge shallow end of the Chickamauga Lake for wadding and throwing rocks.
If swimming isn’t your thing, bring your boat or your fishing pole and explore–or just sit and enjoy one of Tennessee’s biggest lakes.
- There’s a two night minimum for camping.
- You can rent a Corcl at the Ranger Station if you’re camping. It’s a round boat for kids!
- There’s a playground and two tennis courts.
