Pretty in the fall

We stayed here for Fall Leaves in the Smoky Mountains in our van. It’s a basic campground. It usually has bathrooms with running water but since they are doing maintenance on the sewer system they had porta potties. No showers. No cell signal whatsoever. The sites aren’t private, which didn’t…

Peaceful campground

We stayed here for Fall Leaves in the Smoky Mountains in our van. It’s a basic campground. It has bathrooms with running water. No showers. No cell signal whatsoever. The sites aren’t private, which didn’t bother us. There’s a dump and fill station for RVs. Like I said, basic. But well situated. It…

Quiet & Peaceful

This place was very peaceful! We stayed on campsite 70 which was creekside. We have a 39.5 foot TT with 4 slides and the room we had was more than plentiful. The bathhouses were super cozy and I liked the fact as they were single and not a huge bathhouse that you share with others. We would…

Cherokee!

This was a neat campground right on a stream. We stayed a little cabin just big enough for 2. There was mostly no traffic but the sites are right on the street and school buses and work trucks would ride by.

Great river front location close to the NP

We stayed 3 nights in the Baby Bear bell tent with our small children and it was perfect. We ended up arriving later than expected and the hosts were wonderful. Very nice and helpful our whole stay. The river front bell tents are where it’s at! You’re a few steps from a small babbling creek. The…

Beautiful, busy campground

Went middle of November. Still busy! Absolutely beautiful and refreshing. Campsites are a little close together, but we personally were okay with that. Lots of access to many different trails. NO service— I mean none! which can be a refreshing change. Can’t beat camping in the smokies!!! ❤️

Beautiful Spot!

Stayed here with some friends.  

This is a gorgeous spot to camp! The river is right next to the campground and you can always hear it.  The sites are close together, just as a lot of KOA's are set up.  The bathrooms are in great shape, nice and updated.   This is an area where you want to make…

Quiet and Convenient

Nice campground convenient to the casino in Cherokee. Sites are fairly level and well-spaced. We had a site right on the fishing pond which was nice. Staff were not over friendly but not rude.

Our Favorite!

This is in our top 5 campgrounds to visit! We have stayed here multiple times both in RV sites and in the cabins. The staff is super friendly and helpful. River sites stay booked so plan ahead if you want one of those. We enjoy the swimming hole but beware, the water stays COLD even in the…

Fantastic!

This place lives up to the hype and deserves to be called a resort! Very clean and well-manicured sites. Beautiful views. Be aware that you will probably need to plan your visit well in advance; they stay booked!

2nd time @claboughs in pigeon forge TN

Campground is great. On a newer premium site this time. Roomy, all concrete pad and patio. Nice new weather proof furniture. Full hookups. Fantastic bath houses and covered common areas with gas fire pits. Only glitch, I had to buy another sewer hose to total 45ft to reach the sewer access.…

Still my favorite experience

The campsites are large and spaced well. The bath house was immaculate and the whole expieremce over all was fantastic. The camp ground played the goonies while we stayed there. It was my daughter luna’s first time watching and to be in the great outdoors surrounded by other families during the…

Best in Pigeon Forge

Just had our 3rd stay. This is a very nice resort with tons of amenities and they keep working to improve. 1st rate bathhouse with stone tiles, resort type pool, outdoor gas fireplaces and firepits, concrete pads, creek, and more. All this at around a mile off the parkway.

Convenient

My site was the closest to the entrance so there was a lot of traffic throughout the night. However, on the other side there was a beautiful creek which was wonderful to hear in the morning as I drove out. I have the annual parks pass & unfortunately didn’t get the discount when I checked in…

Hidden in plain view

Had a great time here. Easy to miss but right off the main road. Google Maps shows it just before the actual location (turn at the cemetery sign, and go past the cemetery). Spaced far apart but doesn't feel like you are completely isolated. Will be coming back for sure.
